This cottage is in a perfect location for exploring Winchester on foot. Close to lots of good restaurants and pubs plus lots of places of historical interest.

Reviewed by Trevor, 13th September 2019

Great location and having a parking permit was most appreciated. The bathroom was a little basic. It took a while to get used to the noise of the traffic, particularly at night. The owner was very helpful.

Reviewed by Stephen, 28th April 2019

This was an excellent place from which to see Winchester e.g. Cathedral, School, Great Hall & St Cross; but also the surrounding area. On street parking takes some getting used to; but is worth it because of central location.
