About the property

Riverside Cottage - a cottage that sleeps 10 guests in 5 bedrooms

Riverside Cottage is a stunning holiday cottage nestled in 5 acres of beautiful gardens set on the banks of the River Dever. The cottage is a delightful example of a truly blissful country retreat with its thatched roof, cosy but spacious interior and wonderfully manicured gardens. Riverside Cottage gives a feeling of tranquility and seclusion as soon as you enter its long driveway with everything a country goer may want and yet within walking distance of the little hamlet of Bansbury.

This charming much loved home is within easy reach of the historic City of Winchester with its excellent shopping and restaurants. However, the setting is so pretty you may not want to leave at all! There is an impressive kitchen at the heart of the property with a traditional AGA, that no true country cottage is without, and is ideal for entertaining. This opens out on to the garden facing conservatory that has wonderful views of the surrounding grounds. The cottage has no shortage of traditional charm with original wood beams, comfy beds, unique furniture and cosy log burner to relax by and unwind after a long country walk.

The cottage was once separate farmers' cottages but were converted into one property with care, it has all the unique touches of each cottage including 3 separate staircases and hidden gems you will need to discover for yourself!

Although Riverside Cottage is set beside a river the 5 acre garden is fully fenced and gated to ensure everyone's safety. No wonder the Riverside Cottage featured in The Sunday Times '25 great British holiday rentals' and guests return year after year.

The Test Valley around Stockbridge is well worth exploring for its clear water river, walks and fishing opportunities. Bombay Saphire Gin distillery is also a must do day out - arrange a taxi!
