Winchester train station is 10-15 minutes walk.

Winchester town centre and theatre is approximately a 15-20 minute walk.

There are a couple of parks for children and pleasant scenic public walks around a local farm situated at the end of the road.

Local pubs are within a 10 minute walk and offer food at very reasonable prices or facility to order takeaways and eat-in at pub.

There are many interesting local attractions to visit such as:

Winchester City Mill, Bridge Street is a rare example of an urban working corn mill, powered by the fast-flowing River Itchen, which can be seen passing under the mill.

Winchester Cathedral - The long history of this sacred place stretches back over 15 centuries. You'll find so much to discover: glorious church architecture and tiny crafted details, priceless treasures and great works of art, historic events and famous people.

City Museum, The Square has three galleries that tell the story of Winchesters' past from the Iron Age to the present. Features include mosaics and reconstructed Victorian High Street shops.

The Royal Green Jackets (Rifles) Museum situated adjacent to Winchesters' Great Hall and within easy walking distance of the city centre, The Royal Green Jackets (Rifles) Museum, opened in 1989, is one of the best regimental museums in the country. It is also one of Winchesters' five military museums.

The Hospital of St Cross nestling in the water meadows alongside the River Itchen and in the shadow of St Catherine's Hill lies the ancient Hospital of St Cross. Reknowned for the tranquility of its setting and the beauty of its architecture, the Hospital is one of England's oldest continuing almshouses.

The Gurkha Museum at Winchester tells the moving and unique story of Gurkha service to the British Crown and its people for nearly 200 years

The Great Hall (Home of the Round Table) is one of the finest surviving medieval halls which contains the legendary Round Table which has been famous for centuries for its links with the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

Winchester Science Centre & Planetarium is a unique, exciting interactive centre administered by the educational charity, The Hampshire Technology Centre Trust Ltd, with the specific purpose of promoting the knowledge and understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Old Winchester Hill is an amazing location looking out from a flat-topped chalk spur. The South Downs long-distance footpath crosses the site and so it is a popular spot for walkers and picnickers.

Winnall Moors - It is easy to forget in this tranquil spot that the bustling city centre is a short walk away. Winnall Moors has the renowned and beautiful River Itchen flowing throughout its length, providing much needed water for the wet grasslands, reed beds, wet woodlands and ponds.

Theatre Royal Winchester is a beautiful 400 seat venue, rich in history but fully attuned to the 21st century and situated at the cultural heart of the city of Winchester. In 2014 Theatre Royal Winchester celebrates its centenary. With its Edwardian-style auditorium and contemporary refurbishments, it is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful theatres in the south of England

The Chesil Theatre home of the Winchester Dramatic Society formed over 150 years ago is an innovative and friendly amateur company based in a superb medieval building with an intimate 75-seat studio-style theatre which provides a versatile performance space.

Winchester College Founded in 1382 is believed to be the oldest continuously running school in the country. Guided tours concentrate on the medieval heart of the College, and include Chamber Court; the 14th century Gothic Chapel, with one of the earliest examples of a wooden vaulted roof; College Hall, the original Scholars' dining room; School, the seventeenth century redbrick schoolroom and the original medieval cloister. These great buildings are set behind the cathedral and close to the Bishops Palace and the river. Take in the college book shop just along the road - a truly great bookstore with all the ambiance of its age and ust through the city gate is the cathedral.

The Royal Hampshire Regiment Memorial Garden & Museum is very conveniently situated close to the town centre. The building is imposing both inside and outside giving a good insight into the History of the old Regiment.

The King's Royal Hussars Museum at the top end of the town tells the story of the Hussars and the charge of the 600 hundred. The museum brings the life and times of the regiments to life right up to modern day.

Westgate Museum, High Street has a small collection on antiquities and a nice view of the town from the battlements above.

Wolvesey Castle, College Street is not truly a castle, but rather the ruins of a bishop's house. Wolvesey has been an important residence of the wealthy and powerful Bishops of Winchester since Anglo-Saxon times. Standing next to Winchester Cathedral, the extensive surviving ruins of the palace date largely from the 12th-century work of Bishop Henry of Blois. The last great occasion here was on 25 July 1554, when Queen Mary and Philip of Spain held their wedding breakfast in the East Hall. Definitely worth the walk along the river to visit this historical ruin.

St Catherine's Hill - a 58 hectare flower-rich chalk grassland with an abundance of wild flowers and butterflies. This is a great place to enjoy wildlife, ancient monuments and the most spectacular views over Winchester, the Itchen Valley and the surrounding countryside. St Catherine's Hill is a fabulous place to enjoy a summer walk and picnic.

Stockbridge Wildlife & History Walk - Explore this isolated island of characteristic chalk downland set in a sea of intensively farmed land.

The Brooks Shopping Centre offers a weather protected shopping experience with it's fully enclosed malls situated in the heart of the historic city of Winchester. Car parking is easy with the centre's car park connecting straight into the malls by lifts and stairs.

Excellent accommodation really felt like a mini home from home for us.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation had everything catered for even down to toiletries, the house was immaculate and we felt very at home. The location was excellent with all amenities very close by.

Our hosts including their dog were most welcoming.

Unfortunately we didn't have time avail of the hot tub or gym.

Highly recommended and would visit again.

Excellent Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Weeke End Annexe for a couple of days whilst visiting Winchester. Lovely accommodation for 3 of us - our daughter enjoyed the fact that she had a bathroom of her own. Wendy has thought of everything - there's so many small additions to the accommodation - lots of DVDs, games, tea towels, towels, clingfilm, washing up liquid, coffee, tea, sugar, cereal - there was so much that we didn't need to bring ourselves. Fab accommodation, would certainly visit again. For eating, we enjoyed The Stable in Winchester, great pizza and cider.

High Quality Accommodation

  • 4 of 5

The property is really well decorated and equipped with high quality furniture, fixtures and fittings. The property is maintained beautifully and is exceptionally clean. The kitchen is excellent, a joy to cook in and we had a very pleasant few nights in the Annex. Our only slight criticism (and this is a minor point because we're not couch potatoes!) is that the sofas weren't very comfy.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely comments in our guest book. Some damage to a lava lamp which John did agree to fund the cost of replacing the broken part of it - thank you it is appreciated. Based on John's feedback the sofa has now been replaced with a sofa bed which a few people have suggested would be useful for an extra guest or two to stay.

Wonderful Winchester Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in this rental for 5 nights and thouroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is well appointed, clean, comfortable and very inviting. It has all the amenities a family coculd ask for. There is a grocery store 5 min walk away as well as a couple of restaurants and a coffee shop. You can walk into Winchester from here but it is a good 30-40 minutes...a sunny day makes it most pleasant. Wendy and Gareth were excellent hosts. We would highly recommend a stay at this property if you plan a visit to Winchester.
