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 Winchester

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.

Clean and well located house

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well located and was clean and well stocked. While small it worked well for our children. even though the house is so close to town the street was very quiet and parking was readily available. Overall it was a great house.

Comfortable English home ideally located

  • 5 of 5

This is a typical quaint English home that has been modernized in the bathroom and kitchen. There are two small bedrooms upstairs and the stairs are narrow and steep, but very manageable for us; however, may be problematic for the elderly or for small children. The house is located witin two blocks of High Street with its restaurants and shops. St. John's street is a quiet one way lane with sidewalks on either side. The house is clean and well managed. We loved it and will definitely return.
