Location description from owner
The England region
Hampshire is a very beautiful county in England, and the Itchen valley where Winchester is located is one of the most attractive areas of the country. The City of Winchester is full of history, with its famous Cathedral and history of King Alfred. The city has a vibrant and varied market in the middle of town on wednesday to sunday, and on sunday there is a famous farmers market that only sells produce that is made in Hampshire, all fresh, all local.
The location of the Sky Penthouse not only has views of the cathedral, and the nearby countryside, but is only a few minutes walk from local mainline transport like train and bus, but also less than ten minutes walk from nearly all the finest restaurants in the city.
The countryside is accessible in a ten minute walk as well, with cycle routes and quiet country walks in easy reach.
Its only an hour on the train to London, so it is easy to take a train up to London, take in a show or the theatre, have dinner and still be home before midnight!.
The Itchen River valley is famous for Watercress farms, and a wide variety of fine country pubs like the Thomas Lord, named for the Founder of Lords Cricket ground in London, amongst other fine dining experiences like the Michelin Starred Black Rat, or the River Cottage.
The Neighbourhood is listed as "Arelesford" which is a village out of the city, but Holiday lettings have been advised that the actual location is in fact in the City of Winchester.

- Very Good
Myself and the family stayed at the Sky Penthouse for my graduation. The owners, Gordon and his wife, were both very warm and welcoming. Any questions or queries were met with with a fast and helpful reply via text message. The apartment it-self was amazing with beautiful views and had many nice touches. Couldn't fault it, would definitely stay again! Thank you for a great stay!
Glad you had a great time, and congratulations on graduating! See you again soon!
“Great Place and location”
we both really enjoyed our stay. Gordon, the owner, could not have been more helpful. Everything you could want to enjoy a great city with fabulous restaurants all around just everything was in walking distance. Beds were comfortable, great TV, good WiFi. Great kitchen but with all that great grub around out we ate out except for breakfast. Nearly all of the pubs made excellent food with the added attraction that I could get a first class pint of bitter which living in Africa is one thing I really miss. Parking is a nightmare so the fact you are in the city centre makes this a must say place if like me you are not a fan of buses and trains to get to the city
Thanks Peter, I'm so glad you had a great stay - see you again I hope- safe travels!
