Location

Alresford , Hampshire, United Kingdom

Full of charm and Georgian architecture, Alresford was Selected as the No 1 Best Place to live in the Countryside by The Sunday Times and Voted Country Life's 'Favourite Market Town in the south-east.

It's easy to see why. Alresford is a picture postcard, colour washed Georgian market Town situated in the countryside just 7 miles from Winchester.

Its specialist shops sell a wonderful range of beautiful gifts, homeware, antiques, wonderful food, and on trend clothes for all ages.

Now the home of the Watercress Line steam railway, so called because of its association with watercress farming, in what is now known as the UK's capital of watercress. The town hosts the annual Watercress Festival in May attracting thousands of visitors each year.

Alresford is the perfect place for strolling and there is plenty to please the eye - The Fulling Mill and Eel House along the riverside walk, St. John's Parish Church, the Millennium Trail and Old Alresford Pond, created by Bishop de Lucy, Bishop of Winchester, in the 12th century. Close by is Hinton Ampner House & Garden.

For foodies there is a great choice of cafes, takeaways, pubs and restaurants including our favourite, the uber cool tapas bar, Pulpo Negro, recently awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand.

And don't forget to visit the Watercress Line steam railway that runs from Alresford to Alton through 10 miles of beautiful Hampshire countryside

There are plenty of walks, too, the best of which follows the ridiculously gorgeous River Arle located at the bottom of our garden.

Passionate about where we live, I want to share with you the wonders of the gorgeous and charming Georgian market town of Alresford. Born and bred just down the road in Winchester I love adventurous travel and family time with my husband and our 2 children and not forgetting Wooster the cockapoo. Can often be found on the tennis court or walking the dog along the beautiful River Arle at the bottom of the garden.
