About The Clock Tower
The Clock Tower is a magnificent apartment set over 2 floors and part of an old stable building on the grounds of a fabulous Hampshire sporting estate. Accessed via a hallway at the ground floor and set over a further 2 floors up into the clock tower itself; the apartment is surrounded by over a thousand acres of beautiful countryside in the Itchen and Candover Valleys close to Winchester. From the window you'll overlook the historic core of the estate which is called Grange Park; a 600 acre landscaped park and neo classical Grade 1 country house called the Grange, which is now in the guardianship of English Heritage. The house is no longer occupied but it hosts a wonderful opera festival every year, which is not to be missed in June and July.
Accommodation comprises of a cosy living room and kitchen with a blazing wood burner on the first floor and with gorgeous views out over Grange Park. As it is a tower you should expect stairs; the first bedroom has a wonderful king sized bed you'll want to dive into after a busy day exploring and a further bedroom on the second floor with two twin beds. You can also find a modern rainfall shower room and another separate bathroom, giving it a lovely feeling of space and homeliness for 4 guests.
There is access to a garden area below the tower from where you can admire the views, sip your tea and catch up on some well-deserved reading whilst listening to peaceful countryside sounds surrounding you. Garden games offered include Badminton and Swingball.
Accessed via unmade roads, this glorious property will suit walkers and country living lovers looking for a unique Hampshire escape. The Northington Riding school is very close by where you can arrange riding lessons or a one off pony ride, great for the kids. It is the perfect accommodation for both families and couples wanting a rural getaway.
