This house is tucked up a courtyard in the middle of Winchester. This means it is very quiet whilst being within a few minutes walking distance of loads of shops, restaurants and places to visit. It is imaginatively designed , giving each of the three rooms their own en suite and sitting area. The kitchen is well supplied and the sitting room and dining area comfortable. It worked perfectly for us. We stayed with our two adult daughters for a celebration locally. We walked to all our events. Magic. The parking was an added bonus. We never needed the car.
An outstandingly good place to stay. I normally stay in hotels when travelling with work but loved my overnight stay at Two Bare Feet where I was able to relax much more than in a hotel. Everything about the place was perfect. Hannah who owns it and her adjacent B&B was extremely pleasant and a delight to meet.
A wonderful location, perfect facilities, not worth looking further. A real credit to Hannah who obviously cares about her guests.
A second stay for me in this lovely accommodation - this time staying with friends. We stayed in the same room - "The Waiting Room" - and was not disappointed.
So close to town so a dream position. Fantastic stay with friends for a good girly catch up - The Everyman cinema at top of town was fabulous (wine & pizza during a film!) and definitely go to the Palm Pan Asia thai restaurant at bottom of the high street (with a cheeky cocktail in the Pitcher and Piano opposite before!)
Thank you Hannah, again!
From the moment we booked we had a good feeling about it. The owner Hannah sent an informative email about checking in process, the accommodation and parking as well as restaurant options in Winchester. This thoughtful pre check in service was just a taster of the stay itself. We found the parking behind the property easily thanks to Hannah's clear email directions. Yes the parking is tight but as long as you follow the instructions you'll get into the space without issue and you enter the property with a key code.
The accommodation is a small house split into 3 beautifully arranged apartments, with a high ceiling communal lounge and kitchen space for everyone's use. The kitchen has all you need for self catering and you are even provided with some essential breakfast bits which are free such as tea, coffee, eggs, bread and butter. A real bonus for self catering we felt! There's also an 'honesty bar' of other breakfast bits such as luxury cereal, pots of jam and honey, herbal tea, hot chocolate and my favourite...Nutella! There's even a small selection of toiletries to buy if you've forgotten any. These extra touches really made us feel we were in luxury boutique hotel!
We were fortunate to stay in Room 101 which has separate living room on ground floor with en suite off it. The living room is furnished with velvet feel turquoise sofa and nice flat screen TV and floor lamps so you can have more subtle lighting rather than just overheads. The en suite is reminiscent of Thai or Balinese bathrooms...carved like wooden floors, dark wood surround and open wet room shower which is wonderfully powerful! There is no bath but we're shower people so not bothered at all particularly as shower was so good. Toiletries are provided including shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and lotion. A nice luxury touch is the inclusion of shower robes so you can properly relax together with huge fluffy towels!
Upstairs is a loft space with white wooden flooring and a lovely big bed and very comfy pillows! Again lots of lamps so it's not dark as well as a provided hairdryer which I always find helpful and lots of electric points for phone charger etc without having to pull out lights or have your phone across the room.
The heating and ventilation is great and Hannah helpfully left instructions of how to use them in case it wasn't to our desired temperature.
The location is second to none. You're on Parchment Street...bang in middle of city and full of nice independent shops. Although you have to pay a bit to park it's nothing compared to price of city car parks. Even though so centrally located it's very quiet so we had great nights sleep.
Overall we can't recommend highly enough. We originally looked at booking a chain hotel which was overpriced and basic but after bit of research found this instead and we're delighted we did. Not only was it a much better stay but it's great to support independent venues and that's clearly something they're trying to maintain in Winchester. Hannah was a great host and was attentive over email to answer any questions we had despite it being her day off. We realised she also runs the luxury boutique bed and breakfast opposite which from the website looked equally superb and if the same close attention to detail that has been applied to Two Bare Feet is there then you'd be so fortunate to stay in either property. We're definitely going to return!
