What a great place this is. Really friendly welcome. The accommodation is like home from home. Very well equipped kitchen including full sized dishwasher and a washing machine.
All very clean and every little detail has been thought about, including a torch for walking at night.
Only stayed two nights but one of the best places we have stayed in the UK.
Accommodation is perfect. Absolutely spotless throughout and big comfy bed. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need and we enjoyed our homemade bread and chocolate brownies!!
Lovely place for 1/2 people. Very nicely furnished and we equipped. Very quiet. Lovely village. Highly recommended. Hoping to return next year.
We greatly enjoyed our stay in this immaculate and interesting holiday cottage. There was a welcome hamper of bread, butter, milk, lemon drizzle cake and eggs. The room upstairs is very spacious indeed. Chilbolton is an attractive village with lots of thatched cottages and a lovely open "Cow Common", with the River Test running through it. We enjoyed visits to Winchester, Sandham Memorial Chapel (for the amazing Stanley Spencer murals), Stockbridge, Romsey, Hinton Ampner NT property and lots of pubs. The walks along the clear water of the Rivers Test and Itchen are beautiful.
The property is in the village of Chilbolton,which though it is in easy access of main highways offers a truly rural environment. Larch Loft is in the grounds of the owners Emma & Richard and offers parking adjacent to the property. The accommodation provided is to a high standard for both facilities and comfort. My wife and I met Emma who made us feel welcome - a pack of food items were provided which was a nice treat at the start of our vocation and a testament to Emma's culinary prowess! On our week's break we wanted to visit a number of places in the area and found this location ideal for our trips to Winchester, Salisbury, Chawton (Jane Austin Museum) and Stonehenge. By car the journeys were relatively short and in the case of Winchester and Salisbury were backed up by excellent Park & Ride facilities. We were restricted by time (may be a second stay is needed?) to making brief visits to the immediate neighbouring locations, but there is a lot to take in-Stockbridge and Wherwell are well worth visiting. Chilbolton itself has much to offer particularly for those interested in walking and fishing.
