Cosy character cottage in central Winchester
It was a little nice cottage, we were all very happy
The Furniture is simple but functional and aestethic
Located near by the attractions of Winchester as Cathedral etc
and near by the Itchen with a attractive footpath along the river
Winchester has a lot of nice Restaurants and Pubs all near the cottage
We cooked often, the kitchen was good equipped, apart from the knifes...We bought 2 and left them in the kitchen.
I hope you understand my english, perhaps I did not use the right words. In this case sorry about eventually misunderstandings …

Idyllic Hampshire Hideaway - The Orchard Studio
A delightful stay.
What an amazing place, everything you could wish for. Beautiful garden, wonderful breakfast and perfect for our two dogs. Lovely walks on the doorstep. Local pub had great food and dog friendly. Victoria, the owner, was lovely and very welcoming. Would highly recommend Orchard Studio. It is a very special place. One review I read before I booked said it was uber cute and that is exactly what it was. Have to say it was just perfect. Many thanks. …
The Old Tractor Barn, Crabwood Cottages
Absolutely lovely cottage in a wonderful setting
This cottage was gorgeous. It was super clean and a lovely cream tea was left for us when we arrived. Debbie is a lovely thoughtful lady. My dog lost her collar and I mentioned to Debbie that I was going to have to find somewhere to get her another. Next thing there were 2 sizes put through the letter box. The setting is amazing. The woods run at the bottom of the garden, and the horses are always looking for treats.
I would love to return …
The Granary Annex at Worthy Barn
Do not hesitate to book - The Granary is a Gem!
I have only good things to say about the granary! The décor is beautiful, location is perfect, just opposite a farm shop that do some great bits and have a lovely café! The bed was comfy and the bathroom is stunning! We have a little lad who is 1 year old and Catherine offered to supply a travel cot which meant we saved some valuable boot space!
All in all a great place to stay and we will definitely look to stay again in the future. …
Luxury 2 Bedroom Scandinavian Lodge with HOT TUB
From the moment we walked in the lodge, we were pleased.
Fresh flowers on the table,the fire place, the wood beams, it was spacious, well-equipped and clean and tidy.
The beds were comfy,shower was good and hot tub was lovely.
The Breakfast box was lovely.
We booked late so missed out on being able to have afternoon tea (as it's ordered from a bakery, so if you are interested in that please book earlier).
The Bluetooth speaker, putting equipment were nice additions to adding something extra.
My only slight critism and suggestion;
1) the hairdryer provided in the master room was not particularly that great (I do have long hair and struggled) but lucikly there was a second one provided for the other bedroom which was better.
2) I think providing kitchen roll would also have been handy, as it's not something we thought to buy and is useful in cleaning and tidying up.
Going back to the good stuff; We appreciated the information pack which provided lots of handy information for our stay and the team came around to visit once we checked in and again before we left to check everything was okay.
Overall, very recommended and we are already talking about when we are going back.
Thank you :-) …
The Sky Penthouse
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! …
