  • Description


    We are a couple in our thirties with a friendly dog. We moved to the Hampshire countryside one year ago to a cottage with a small holding and 16 acres of woodland. The previous tenants had been growing their own food and heating the house using their own wood. We're aiming for the same, but the garden has got a bit out of control over the winter and the cottage is in need of some renovation. Our friends and family have loved the peace and quiet of the country while helping out with our project and we hope you will too.

Close to plenty of beautiful walks and bike rides. One hour drive or train to London or 50 minutes to the historical town of Winchester.

Towels, bedsheets, hairdryer, toiletries are all provided and you're welcome to use the washing machine etc. we hope you'll make yourself at home. Phone reception is not very good (which is very relaxing!), we have good wifi at the house.
