Charming period cottage quietly located in the centre of Winchester

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

2 bedroom cottage sleeping 4 with garden, close to all amenities of the city

Charming period cottage quietly situated in one on Winchester's quaint old streets.

This renovated cottage still retains the old features which give it plenty of character - old fireplaces and doors and twisty old staircase.

It is ideally situated in the city centre, so all the historic sites, the world class restaurants, bars, live theatre and markets are a very short stroll, there are also many delightful walking and cycling trails along the river and up onto the famous South Downs.

This cottage makes a very homely and comfortable base to come back to after a day out exploring or at work, and the beautifully fitted out kitchen/dining room invites you to enjoy a meal, cooked by yourself or a take-away - we can also arrange a cook to make a romantic dinner for you should you wish.

During the summer months you can enjoy the garden with its terrace for al-fresco dining or relaxing, this is accessed by a flight of quite steep steps.

About Owner

We have been running our holiday letting and b&b business in Winchester for over 20 years and now own and manage properties from small one bedroom apartments to several 2 bedroomed houses all of which have their own very different characteristics. We also live in Winchester, a city which has so much to offer.

Owner purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Owner chose Hampshire

We bought this cottage because we thought our guests would enjoy the original features in the cottage giving it character, the garden and the quiet central location

What makes this cottage unique

Comfortable, cosy cottage to pop in and out of while exploring and enjoying the historic sites and world class shops and restaurants in this exciting city. Relax and dine al fresco in the sunny garden in the summer, or enjoy cooking and eating in the stylish kitchen and chilling out in the sitting room with its original fireplace lit up by candles.

Perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We contacted Caroline very last minute for our stay and she was most accommodating and flexible. The property is located perfectly for Winchester, far enough from any noise at night but close enough to walk less than 5 minutes to the city centre. The cottage itself is beautifully presented, everything works as it should and you feel very at home very quickly. I would definitely recommend to others.

Really charming and nice cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well-maintained and nicely furnished.I liked specially that from this charming house, it was neither far to Winchester High Street, nor for a walk at the river Itchen.

Cathedral, Guild Hall, Winchester Mill are all easy to reach. And on my way back from town, I loved to stop at 'The Bridge Patisserie' for a wonderful fruit tarte.

Lovely days in a lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We had really lovely days in the house in St. Johnson Street. Everything was perfekt. The house is attractively decorated and very clean. The best is the big kitchen with all you need to prepare meals. On a large table, you can sit together and eat. The house is located in a quiet side street, close to the city core, so it easy to buy the things you need. We will be happy to recommend this house again.

Very nice cottage in Winchester

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cottage direct in Winchester. On ground floor you have living room with TV and a large kitchen with everything you need. The kitchen is very nice equipped with microwave, oven, fridge and separate freezer. Even a washing machine is available, perfect for families with children.

On first floor you have two separate bedroom and bathroom with bathtub with shower.

The cottage is perfect for family with two children. Everything is in good condition and clean.

The location of the cottage in Winchester is also perfect. Only a few minutes and you are in downtown with all the tourist attractions.

If you come with your own car you can find in the cottage a permission to park direct in the street in front of the cottage.

The cottage can be fully recommended.

Everything is well organized. Good email and telefone contact.

Very nice owner.

Thank you
