Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Winchester - Embessy Cottage

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Dating from 1450, Embessy Cottage is believed to be the oldest cottage in Twyford, a riverside village just 3 miles south of Winchester. Heavily beamed and filled with charm and character, this historical cottage is comfortably furnished, and enjoys a peaceful setting with a sheltered south-facing garden.

Twyford, once regularly visited by Benjamin Franklin, is an attractive village with 2 inns, a shop, pretty riverside walks and wilder hikes on the South Downs. Historic Winchester with its magnificent Cathedral, College and Great Hall are 5 minutes away by car. London, Portsmouth, Southampton and the New Forest, as well as Bournemouth, the Isle of Wight, Salisbury and Stonehenge, and even Oxford and Chichester are all within an hour’s journey. It is a perfect central base for visiting the South of England with excellent motorway access. A rail station half a mile distant, links to fast London services (60 min).

Bed and Breakfast accommodation is also offered from our quietly situated cottage in the village. Other Self-catering accommodation also available, please contact for details.

Lovely English cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We love this cottage and have stayed here several times. We like how old and authentic it is, but also how beautifully it's been renovated. It has a charming bedroom, with a comfortable bed (and a small second one with bunk beds), a modern kitchen with everything you might need, a wonderful living room and sitting area with TV and Wifi, and such a lovely patio and private garden in the back. The bathroom is nice with a large tub under the original timber beam (you have to watch your head when you get in the tub, but we felt this was well worth it for the charm of and feeling of this place (the cottage was built in 1450, which of course amazes Americans like us). We thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage and hope you enjoy your stay there as much as we have.
