If you’re searching for a pretty cottage close to Winchester, but quiet enough to access the countryside on foot, then The Mallard’s Nest is perfect for you!

Situated just in-front of the owner’s house, this charming cottage has recently been updated with attention to detail into a luxury holiday home. On the ground floor there is a lovely open space feel offering a modern kitchen, dining area and living room with roaring log burner; ideal for putting your feet up and cosying up to after a busy day exploring. With 2 bedrooms upstairs and one bathroom, this cottage with its contemporary theme throughout is the ideal retreat for anyone.

Shawford mainline train station is within a short walk away, making it easy to get into Winchester or even beyond by rail if you don’t have a car. There are beautiful river walks on your doorstep including a fabulous 45 minute walk into Winchester along the riverbank, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous. Fly-fishing is an option, as the River Itchen is at the end of the garden.

The Mallard’s Nest will suit couples or families alike wanting a countryside getaway or even those needing longer term accommodation to base yourself from for a short while. If you want to add a couple of guests to your party but give them the independence of a bedroom, shower and their own access, why not book Drakes Den.
