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.
The apartment was excellent, well appointed and very stylish. The apartment is a short level walk from the city centre, with all its restaurants, pubs and, of course its stunning cathedral.
The off street parking is a real bonus in Winchester, where parking is at a premium.
Altogether, a very comfortable stay; we would certainly look to return if in the area.
5 minutes walk from Winchester High Street with shops and all historic attractions. Also 5 minute walk from nearby nature reserve. On site parking so did not need to use our car for 2 of the 3 full days we stayed.
