Character cottage set in an idyllic riverside location with a heated outdoor swimming pool, expansive grounds and views over lavender fields. The warmest welcome is extended to all who come to stay.

This delightful thatched cottage in the idyllic riverside location of Winchester, Hampshire will make a cosy base for exploring all that the area has to offer. There’s plenty of interior space for your four-legged friend to enjoy and the expansive grounds surrounding the property means they can let off a bit of steam. Set in a peaceful location where you’ll see nothing but lavender fields and lush countryside, this property is truly the place to get some rest after a hectic schedule.

With quirky interiors and rustic charm, this cottage offers a warm welcome as soon as you step foot in the door. The spacious entrance hall complete with a stunning piano and wood burner is the perfect place to wipe muddy paws before entering the main living space. The lounge area features comfy sofas for reclining as your canine companion sprawls out on the rug in front of the wood burner for much-needed naps after walkies. There is also a spacious conservatory/diner area to soak up the sun’s rays as you dine and four traditionally decorated bedrooms, as well as a useful sofa bed. The real selling point of the property is the heated swimming pool in the back garden, where the whole family can enjoy some quality fun time together as your four-legged friend freely scampers around the open fields.

The nearest shop and pub are less than 1 mile away, so this cottage is conveniently located to grab some groceries and for the option of socialising come evening time. Once you’ve had a few days to relax in the peace and quiet, be sure to visit the nearby city of Winchester, which is just 14 miles from the property.
