  • Beautiful thatched cottage in the heart of the Test Valley

Property code: THATC

This restored detached cottage sits peacefully within the grounds of the owner’s property and is a couple of miles from the village of Awbridge.

This delightful cottage is situated in rural Hampshire in the heart of the picturesque Test Valley, 2 miles from the vibrant market town of Romsey, with the ancient cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester, both approximately 14 miles away. The village is situated on the Test Way, which passes by many pretty villages, historic churches, and country houses. Nearby Romsey offers visitors a fine selection of shops and restaurants, Romsey Abbey, or the home of the Mountbatten family at Broadlands. The National Trust’s Mottisfont Abbey is well worth a day out. Alternatively, take the short drive to the New Forest, ideal for keen walkers and cyclists.

Stepping inside, the ground floor has a cosy, characterful lounge with a TV, DVD iPod dock and wood burner which is perfect for those chillier evenings after a day out. The kitchen is light and well-equipped with an electric hob, double electric oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine and microwave. The cottage has a separate dining room. The bathroom is downstairs and offers a shower over the bath and WC. Heading upstairs you will find the two bedrooms; a spacious king-size bedroom and a lovely twin bedroom.

Outside is a partially enclosed garden with patio area with seating and a gas BBQ. There is parking for 2 cars. Dog owners will have use of the handy onsite dog washing and drying facilities which are in the dog barn.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
