About Blackbird Cottage

We are delighted to be able to offer you the unique opportunity to stay in Blackbird Cottage in Winchester city centre; where the attention to detail and quality of fixtures and fittings make this cottage one of our truly special offerings. The owners have taken inspiration from historic Winchester itself as well as incorporating a fresh English feel. Copper gas lanterns, Bestlite lights, used famously by Winston Churchill, English dresser and wonderful cast iron radiators are complemented by contemporary English colour schemes and local artwork throughout.

An open-plan handmade kitchen with spacious dining table and all mod cons, including range master oven and superb coffee maker; opens out to a small outside courtyard with bistro table and chairs for your morning coffee in the sunshine. The living room area is calm and comfortable whilst the small wood burner will warm the room on those frosty nights.

Two gorgeous bedrooms with luxury duvets and linen on the first floor will sleep up to 4 adults, whilst pull out beds can accommodate another 2 children if needed. A beautifully designed bathroom with roll-top bath and large separate rainfall shower is shared between the two bedrooms.

Blackbird Cottage is within a 5 minute walk of Winchester cathedral and is well located for walking to all that Winchester has to offer.

What makes this area
So special...

Close to Blackbird Cottage you will find the Wykeham Arms pub famed for its food and hospitality. Walk a little further through the heart of the Mediaeval City to the world famous Winchester Cathedral, final resting place for novelist Jane Austen. It is a wonderful place to visit any time of year, but especially in the Winter months when the grounds are transformed into a Winter Wonderland, with traditional Christmas markets. It is equally beautiful to visit during the Spring and Summer when the grounds burst into bloom, making them a joy to wander around and explore. Winchester is at one end of the famous South Downs Trail, a 100 mile walking or cycling route for the more adventurous visitor. The largest forest in England, the New Forest, is a short drive away, full of pubs, walks and wildlife. Winchester is a foodie haven, with Michelin star restaurant The Black Rat, a Rick Stein seafood restaurant and The Ivy all short walks away.
