Hardy House is a wing of an attractive Victorian mansion, 40 metres from the park overlooking the beautiful city of Winchester. 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. Our guest double bedroom has an en suite bathroom with double power shower. The bedroom is equipped with digital TV, and internet. The dining room where breakfast is served 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 parking available on the private road outside.

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.

Outside is a small, south-facing garden, where breakfast can be taken in fine weather. There is parking available on the private road outside. Set near the edge of the park and the Winchester viewpoint, our house is a five-minute walk down 100 steps through the park to the medieval city centre. 
The Black Rat and The Chesil Rectory (both Michelin starred), Rick Stein, River Cottage Canteen, and the famous Black Boy pub are all within walking distance, but should be booked in advance of your stay with us. We are close to South Downs Way (we welcome cyclists: bicycles can be locked up overnight) and a five-minute drive into unspoilt countryside. Our house is convenient for The Guildhall (for weddings and other functions), St Swithun's School (5 minutes walk), Winchester College, and a range of museums. What makes us unique? The attractive park is a few steps away and you can walk through it to reach the city centre. We are in a quiet position yet very convenient for the centre with its shops, restaurants and weekend market. Check-in between 5pm and 9pm (can be different, by special request). Check out by 11am. Breakfast between 8am and 10am to include coffee and tea, fruit juice, cereal, fruit, yogurt, toast, jam and marmalade. Please note we have two dogs. Guests may bring one well-behaved dog (at small extra cost) but no cats please. We also have a second bedroom with en suite bathroom, so please enquire if you are a group of three or four. Please note, this is our home and not a hotel, so you will find personal belongings in the house and in the bedrooms. More

So sorry, but I've only just seen your very nice review. We are pleased you enjoyed staying with us - do come again!

Reviewed 18 September 2013

It isn't easy to find good but reasonably priced accommodation in Winchester. I was delighted to come across this recent addition to the owner's property. Inside the main front door but up a separate staircase to a stylish, spacious room with cleverly fitted bathroom. Lovely...More
