This brick and flint barn has recently been converted to a smart modern annex next to our house. Set in the beautiful hamlet of Middle Preshaw in the heart of the South Downs National Park on The Monarch's Way footpath, just off The South Downs Way. A great base to explore Winchester, WInchester Christmas Market, the South Downs National Park or the South coast for a sailing weekend, Southampton Boat Show, Goodwood Festival of Speed, and the New Forest.
50Mbps superfast wireless internet
A really comfortable home from home, this annex is self-contained with all modern amenities.

Please note that we have two large friendly dogs and one inquisitive cat (who is not allowed in the annex!).
There is no mobile phone signal from the house, but the superfast internet connection allows for excellent communication.
During the summer our garden is a lovely peaceful spot to relax with a book or to just enjoy the surrounding nature. We are on a comprehensive network of footpaths. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times on the surrounding footpaths, due to the proximity of livestock and a pheasant shoot.They are however free to run around the garden but please do clean up after them.
We are 15 minutes from Winchester train station, there is a direct line to London Waterloo (Approx 1 hour) and Clapham Junction. There are regular coaches from Winchester to and from Heathrow Airport and London Victoria with National Express coahes. A local taxi number is Wintax Car, they also have an app.
Children are very welcome to stay but must be supervised at all times, we do not have any child specific equipment.
