Set in the South Downs National Park, in the idyllic Itchen valley, this two bedroom, newly renovated self contained cottage is a perfect rural retreat or an excellent base for exploring the south of England. Close to Winchester, one hour from London

The space
This is a special place to stay with underfloor heating, gorgeous antiques and finest quality bedding.

It is a converted cottage with a kitchen leading on to a terrace which overlooks the lawned courtyard and countryside beyond. Also downstairs there is a large sitting room with a wood burner and a bathroom which has a walk in shower. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one double and a single. In the winter months this is a cosy place to stay with the woodburner and underfloor heating. The cottage is in Hampshire countryside, 1/4 mile from some of the best fishing on the River Itchen and Avington golf course is also nearby. From the cottage you can walk to The Bush Inn which has a renowned restaurant.

You can cook in the cottage, walk to the pub for an excellent meal, drive 3 miles to the busy market town Alresford with good restaurants, cafe's and pubs or 20 minutes to the cathedral city of Winchester with the Christmas market and a wide variety of restaurants from the Michelin starred Black Rat to Rick Steins and River Cottage.
A starter pack of coffee, tea and milk are supplied.

The beauty of this location is that you can shut off for a few days and enjoy the peace of the South Downs National Park or you can use it as a base to explore the south of England. It takes 15 minutes to get to major roads or a main line station which can take you to London, Oxford and Bath as well as the coastline of southern England.
