This “upside down” detached holiday property has the bedrooms on the ground floor and living areas on the first floor, with lovely views over the fields. It is located along a peaceful single track lane on the edge of the village of Kings Worthy, which offers local shops and pubs. Only 2 miles from the lively and attractive city of Winchester, the ancient capital of England. Sometimes known as the legendary Camelot, it is steeped in history and culture and was one of the locations for the filming of the ’Da Vinci Code’. As well as the Winchester Cathedral, there’s the magnificent Great Hall and its pride and joy, The Round Table. Cultural enthusiasts will delight in Wolvesey Palace, the Old Bishop’s Palace and Winchester College, one of the oldest public schools in England. Your trip may also include paying your respects at the graves of some of England’s greatest kings and queens, bishops, saints and literary giants such as Jane Austen. Alternatively, there’s the Peninsula Barracks where you can fire a Baker Rifle or find out more about the history of various regiments of the British Army. Winchester also lies on the route of some historic trails and you can walk in the ancient steps of pilgrims on routes that vary from a few hours or could take you all the way to France. Hampshire has a lot to offer visitors, from attractive coastline, the spectacular hills of the South Downs and the lovely chalk streams and water meadows of the Meon Valley, the varied attractions of Portsmouth and Southampton, the New Forest and only one hour from London. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
