Description

Dating from the late 1800's and recently renovated The Down House Cottage nestles in the leafy village of Shawford, right on the edge of the National South Downs Park. Less than 3 miles from the historic heart of Winchester. The river Itchen flows through the village and it is possible to follow it's path right to the High Street within 45 minutes.

The Down House Cottage, which adjoins our family home, has a private entrance leading you directly into a small kitchen equipped for light catering and complete with cooker, fridge, washing machine. There is a cosy sitting room with large log burner (which is double-sided so also heats the kitchen - a first night 'fire starter kit' is provided & logs are available to buy from the local store for subsequent nights) plus a dining area over-looking the mature garden. The sitting room has a flatscreen TV plus DVD player. There is free Wi-Fi.

Upstairs the bathroom features a large, walk-in shower. The

Reviewed 29 Nov 2016

We spent a lovely five nights at this adorable little cottage: the interior is as described and both tasteful and comfortable. The cottage is well-situated in the Hampshire hills: we had a wonderful rural walk along the River Itchen and a great day out in London--direct from the nearby station. We took the train to Winchester one day--a speedy five minutes--abd drove into the city on a Sunday (when there was free parking). We were easily able to cook meals, which we had in front of the beautiful fire (we brought our own wood). Sue was very helpful in connecting us to the Internet and in allowing us to stay until noon on the day we checked out. We had a comfortable and peaceful stay and can happily recommend the cottage!
