The light and modern en suite Bedroom 1 is in a wing of an attractive Victorian mansion, close to the park overlooking Winchester city centre. Bedroom 2 is in the old part of the house. Free parking.

The space

We live in an attractive Victorian mansion, close to the park overlooking the city centre. We completely renovated our house in 2013, and added a modern extension designed by an award-winning architect. The house has typically Victorian high ceilings, large windows and is very light.

The small (11.5 sq ft) but well equipped bedroom 1 is in the modern wing of the house, is very light with large windows, and has an en suite bathroom containing a double power-shower. There is digital TV and internet in the bedroom.

Bedroom 2 is in the old part of the house. It's small sized like bedroom 1, also with lovely garden views. It has a larger bathroom, containing both bathtub and shower. It also has wifi and a TV. Please do not expect our house to be like a hotel! We live in it with our dogs (and, occasionally, our grown-up children), so there will be some personal items in the rooms.

The breakfast room has a high ceiling with exposed oak beams, and a family-sized pine breakfast table. Outside is a small, south-facing garden, where breakfast can be taken in fine weather. There is unrestricted parking outside.

Breakfast is continental and included in the price, offering:

- coffee or tea
- toast and butter
- marmalade and jam
- cereal, yogurt and fruit
- fruit juice and milk

We can provide tea and coffee for guests to take up to the bedrooms, if requested.

Our house is convenient for St Swithun's School, Winchester College, Pilgrims, Winchester University, The Guildhall (for weddings), and a good range of shops, restaurants and museums.

Set near the Winchester viewpoint, it is a five-minute walk down (steepish) steps through the park to the medieval city centre - but 10 minutes up!

Two Michelin-starred restaurants: The Black Rat and The Chesil Rectory, are a short walk away (they must be booked in advance). Rick Stein and The River Cottage Canteen are also within walking distance. We are close to South Downs Way - cyclists are welcome and bicycles can be locked up in our garage overnight.

What makes us unique? The park so close and there is a lovely walk through it to reach the city centre. We are in a quiet position yet convenient for the centre with its shops, restaurants and weekend market.

As hosts, we can be as available as much as you need to give you advice and information on Winchester.

Two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.

As little or as much as the guests want. We serve continental breakfast, during which time when we are happy to chat about what to do and see in Winchester and the surrounding area, including information about local cycle routes.

Winchester is a really beautiful city, clean and safe, with lots of history. There's a good selection of shops, some very nice restaurants including River Cottage Canteen and 30+ (!) coffee shops, a selection of museums, the famous Cathedral and Water Meadows. You can be in the countryside within 15 minutes walk.

Bus service and lots of taxis. There is a railway station with train service direct from London Waterloo & Clapham Junction, Southampton and Bournemouth. Bicycle hire is possible nearby.

Please note we have two dogs. Guests may bring one well-behaved dog (at small extra cost) but no cats please! Please note, there is not enough space for an extra bed or cot in the room, so it is not suitable for a couple with children.

Guest access

Not suitable for people with mobility problems as the rooms are both approached via steep staircases.

Interaction with guests

We are delighted to give our guests advice on restaurants and local sights, cycle routes and walks.

Other things to note

Please note we have two dogs. Guests may bring one well-behaved dog (at small extra cost) but no cats please!

These are small double bedrooms so there is not enough space for an extra bed or cot in the room, and it is not suitable for a couple with young children. Bedroom 1 is always available, bedroom 2 is only available on the same booking as bedroom 1 (i.e. for one family or group). Please note that the bedrooms are normally our sons' bedrooms so they will have some personal items in them.

Beautiful home! Felice and Peter were lovely hosts and went the extra mile for us. I would definitely recommend their home to their travellers. Winchester is a gorgeous ancient city and yet their home is quiet and tranquil but only 5 minutes walk into the city through a beautiful park!

This is the ultimate home away from home - you won’t want to leave. Everything in the property description is spot on! The pictures do not do this B&B justice - this Home is stunning! It would be worth making the trip to Winchester just to stay with Felice! Thank you so much for a magnificent place to lay our heads!

A perfectly convenient home away from home to access the historic city center! Comfortable room, friendly and helpful hosts--Peter and Felice--and a quiet street with parking. Good communication and directions from Felice before our arrival and during our stay. I highly recommend without hesitation.
