About The Loft at St Thomas'

St Thomas' church on Southgate Street was originally built in 1845 and had latterly been used as the council's Records Office after ceasing its religious use in 1969. You now have the opportunity to stay in this magnificent conversion that comprises 9 individually designed modern apartments.

The Loft is on the second floor and taking the stairs means that you can view from the landings the grandeur of the architecture, which the developers have successfully retained. The loft style apartment has soaring ceiling space and arched original church windows complemented by the clean, white, minimalist lines of the ultra modern kitchen; that includes an induction hob and boiling hot water tap. A built in sound system and designer lighting shows off the splendour of the comfortable living space.

This quirky accommodation has two en suite bedrooms, one of which is accessed via a further staircase to an upper floor. Both bathrooms are super luxurious rooms you'll want to spend time in! Upstairs has a stunning freestanding bath, whilst downstairs has a sumptuous walk-in shower. Living here is like living at a 5* hotel. The owners of the Loft at St Thomas' have cleverly dressed and furnished the space including local Winchester touches to the decor that fits effortlessly within the historic feel of the building.

"Beautiful apartment - light, spacious, luxurious. Great access to all amenities in Winchester. Quiet, relaxing and just what we needed. Thank you for all the yummy treats and the extended check out time."

Sylvia, Claire, Becky and Elena - from all across the South Coast - May 2018

"A beautiful, remarkable space - quite beautiful. We managed to negotiate all the apartment's technology and hi-tech lighting. We felt very special staying here. Would love to return when the lift is fixed as coping with stairs at 83 and 88 years of age is no joke! Overall, a brilliant stay."

What makes this area
