The house was lovely, well maintained, clean and had everything that we could ask for - even table tennis in the court yard. Our stay was perfect and the owner was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property.

We have stayed in the annex several times whilst looking to buy a house in Winchester. It is well appointed with a wonderful bedroom with views over the countryside. The location provides speedy access to the A34, M3 and the city and has lots of parking
