What makes this area
So special...

It's just a short walk to the centre of the city with its award winning restaurants and pubs, nestled around the oldest high street in England. Close by, you have the Cathedral and beautiful walks through the Water Meadows; where Keats was inspired to write "Ode To Autumn".

Lay Your Hat In Winchester is on a quiet street in one of the oldest parishes of the city and yet just a short walk into the centre of town. Even nearer are two great pubs The Hyde Tavern and The Mucky Duck, fantastic walks, a Theatre, a Library and the train station to London - It ticks all the boxes! Winchester itself was the ancient capital of England and has a plethora of local historic attractions, such as Winchester Cathedral, King Arthur's Round Table, Jane Austen's House and nearby Stonehenge to name but a few.

The local area also offers a fantastic choice of shooting grounds and fishing lakes. Or perhaps Golf is your preferred pastime? South Winchester Golf Club is less than 3 miles from the cottage and Alresford Golf Club is just over 6 miles away. There is plenty for you all to choose from to keep you entertained in and around Winchester, everything from Rugby to Canoeing along the River Itchen.

In less than 25 minutes you can visit Go Ape Southampton, situated in Itchen Valley Country Park, set in 440 acres of beautiful woodland and meadows close to the River Itchen, it's perfect for those looking for awesome outdoor activities you'll never forget.

Well worth a visit is the market town of Alresford, a real treat. Alresford (pronounced Allsford) is a beautiful Georgian Town, which for many centuries was a prosperous wool town.

A camera is a must as there is so much to see and do. Beautiful scenery, wildlife, pub lunches, New Forest ponies, historic buildings, ancient trees, walks and routes are a few to mention.
