Romantic, bow-fronted, ground floor Regency property with lots of character. Well-appointed but down to earth. Directly opposite the famous King Alfred's statue in the centre of town: 1 minute walk to the river, 1 minute to city centre shops, 3 mins to Winchester Cathedral, 15 mins to train station. Kitchen opens into small pretty garden, then onto quiet cul-de sac for parking (permit provided- parking in the cul-de-sac not guaranteed but there are plenty of streets within the permit zones).

The space
I am an artist, musician and collector of natural history, so there are various artefacts dotted around (including taxidermy), a cosy bohemian feel and plenty of character. It is an incredibly romantic space, so perfect for couples on a special trip. There is a roll-top slipper bath. The flat has own front and back door (neither shared), keys are provided for both. My upstairs neighbour is very considerate, friendly and has her own entrance via shared path in the garden. (She has a little very friendly dog.)
There is no television but there is wifi and a modern projector, with pull-down screen (you would need a laptop or device that has HDMI connection).
There is a roll-top bath pond with fish in the garden.
Though the flat will be thoroughly cleaned for your stay, it's an old building with vintage furniture, so will never look as pristine as a modern build.

Where you’ll be

Hampshire, England, United Kingdom

Winchester has an abundance of wonderful places to explore, visit, eat and drink; all within a very short walk. My favourite pub is The Black Boy, which is a gorgeous 10 min walk along the River Itchen, yards from the warren of streets around Winchester College. More than anything though, I love how one can walk for 15 mins in any direction and be in completely open countryside.

My name is Polly and I am a musician, artist and freelance creative. I have lived in this flat for 10 years and was born in Winchester so I know the City very well. I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time walking, swimming, cycling and running. I have a studio out in a beautiful village called Bramdean where I paint, make costumes and do leather work. I also work as theatrical practitioner/designer and facilitate workshops. Music and singing is a big passion of mine. I am in a number of bands and love to spend as much time as possible playing gigs and making albums.
