This apartment has all you need for a excellent base to launch you daily excursions from. Within walking distance of all of Winchester's main historical attractions, pubs, restaurants and the like you wont need the car (for which there is a parking space) for too much at all. We loved it and without hesitation would book this location again - actually, if it was on the market we would buy it!!
The apartment more than lived up to our expectations. It was comfortable, spacious, fully-equipped and offered off-road parking. A big advantage was its location, within 5 minutes walking distance of the High Street. Caroline was very hospitable and kindly got us out of a muddle when we overstayed our booking (psychologically we didn't want to leave!) We are looking forward to returning sometime in the near future and staying in this wonderful little apartment again!
Just a few minutes walk from the city centre, this modern and very well appointed apartment has off - street parking. It is spacious, comfortable, clean and has a small shared garden to sit in on hot days. Favourite attractions: Winchester Cathedral, The Water Cress Line Preserved Railway, Jane Austen's House, Stockbridge and Houghton Lodge Gardens. City shopping is great, complete with street entertainers (fire eating) and a busker. A live play was enjoyed at the local Theatre. Caroline and David made us most welcome and dealt very promptly with a minor problem.
The owners, David and Caroline, were on hand to give us any support we needed. We walked into the flat and immediately saw the roses and chocolates that they had left for us. What a lovely touch! The flat is close to the High Street, the bus station and the rail station. There is a bus stop very near to the flat that goes to a big Tesco for groceries. As we didn't have a car, this was most helpful, although just a few minutes down Middle Brook Street is a Sainsbury's and a Marks and Spencer with a food hall. There are lots of interesting shops in the pedestrianized High Street. Most of the tourist sites are within walking distance - the Cathedral, the Great Hall with the Round Table, the Mill, the Abbey Gardens. We took some day trips using the local buses.
My partner and I stayed almost one year in Carolines and Davids house in Winchesters Park Avenue. We occupied the apartments 2 and 1 each for some time. The apartments are small and functional but also cosy, and the landlady has been always kind and helpful. The house is perfectly situated between Winnall Moore, a beautiful nature reserve and Winchester town centre. 2 minutes walk to a gym in a Tudor building. 5 minutes walk to several supermarkets and the High Street with its almost daily markets, individual shops, good restaurants, Cafés and pubs. The Cathedral is only a short walk further. We both loved it there very much, the more quiet apartment one has also a direct access to a nice little patio and is more quiet than the No one that faces to the busy North Walls. The apartments have WiFi, TV and come with a very useful private parking. Train station is only 10 min walk up North Walls. If a good fate should bring us ever back to Winchester my first call would be to Caroline be it for a short or a long stay.
