About the property

Four Star AA Rated Rooftop Boutique Penthouse With Great Views And Parking

The lift takes you to the top floor of this 18th century Listed Building where the Sky Penthouse welcomes you.

As you enter this warm, light filled, elegantly decorated and furnished modern apartment, your eyes are immediately drawn to the tree lined, roof top views of Winchester City.

Your footsteps take you first, on your left, to the intimate separate dining area which seats six guests comfortably.

You are then drawn into a spacious, comfortable seating area, offering large, plump, relaxing sofas, surrounded by beautiful fresh flowers, and further city roof top views.

Turn around and to your left is a well equipped kitchen. Walk a little further and you enter a mirrored vestibule. Here you will find a modern bathroom, two airy bedrooms, one with a glorious, romantic, king size bed, and the other double or twin bedroom which can be converted according to your preference. Each room offers ample storage space. A quality 4ft wide double sofa bed is in the lounge allowing the sleeping capacity to extend to six.

The care, quality, comfort and attention to detail that your hosts, Julia and Gordon Clyne, have invested here, is clearly reflected in this outstanding city centre penthouse.

Throughout your stay Gordon is often nearby to help with any guidance you may require, such as where to dine or enjoy the many entertainments the city has to offer.

You are seven minutes walk from Winchester station with a frequent service to London Waterloo, the coast and the West Country.

About Gordon and Julia Clyne

The owners, Gordon and Julia Clyne are a fun couple, Gordon has recently spent 17 years in silicon valley so he can answer pretty much any high tech questions you may have, and lives across the hall from the Sky Penthouse, and his Nebula App provided the artwork on the walls!!

Gordon and Julia Clyne purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Gordon and Julia Clyne chose Winchester

The location in central winchester allows you to nip up to London to take in a show, and dinner, and still be home by midnight! Parking is at a premium in Winchester, but with a private garage or parking bay you will not have a worry. Its a five minute walk to anywhere in the city centre or public transport. The View is to die for and the morning sun will warm you up and put a smile on your face every day! Even though its in the city centre, the nights are quiet, and the stars are always a great view too!

What makes this apartment unique

You will find yourself gazing out the windows at the view every day!!

Wonderful hosts. Wonderful apartment. Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Booked Sky for my family to stay at during my son's graduation and celebrations. Gordon was there to welcome us on arrival, show us around and provide us with an additional parking permit.

Apartment is stunning and has great views across beautiful Winchester. Everything is within easy walking distance but having parking included in the price was a real boon and so handy.

There is also a lift to Sky so those less mobile only need to negotiate a few steps at the front of the building; my mother stayed with us and found these no problem, despite an arthritic leg.

Bedding, towels and complimentary toiletries were all of excellent quality, and furnishings were gorgeous. Could not fault anything about this booking from time of reservation up to departure....nothing was too much trouble, & communication was excellent.

I would highly recommend this place as a better option to any of the hotels in Winchester, for space, quality, location, price, parking, hospitality and of course the views.

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We planned a long weekend of golf, fine dining and copious amounts of alcohol. The accommodation was in the ideal location for our plans and the Penthouse Apartment ticked all the boxes for a very discerning group of gentlemen of a certain age. Gordon was the perfect host and very helpful with information before and during our stay.

Thank you

Simply Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Sky Penthouse was the perfect place for our family of four. The penthouse is nicely equipped and simply decorated. Natural light fills the rooms by day and views please by night. We were very comfortable.

The location is situated well between the train and bus terminals in Winchester. Great restaurants, the outdoor market, the cathedral, and much more are within easy walking distance. We enjoyed The Corner House just a few doors down High Street at Parchment...great full breakfast! We also highly recommend the tower tour offered at Winchester Cathedral.

Gordon was very helpful and accommodating. We have stayed at many HomeAway properties and Sky Penthouse is the best one! We hope to visit Winchester again some day.
