This 400-year old thatched terraced cottage is nestled in the heart of the delightful Hampshire market town of Romsey, on the banks of the River Test.
This gem of a cottage, which oozes character and charm, was once part of a bakery and offers couples a romantic and special holiday cottage at any time of the year.
This cottage blends traditional features with the benefit of all the modern creature comforts, including a fully fitted kitchen and ground floor shower room, whilst the beams, quirky wooden staircase, inglenook fireplace and vaulted bedroom take you back to a different century.
Outside you are able to relax in the enclosed garden and enjoy refreshments on the attractive decked patio, whilst if you fancy a treat just stroll across the road to the award-winning local pub which serves a varied menu and local ales.
The vibrant town centre is also just a short walk away, where you will experience a wide range of retail outlets and restaurants.
Within Romsey itself you can browse the market, take a saunter along the River Test, one of the finest chalk streams in the country, enjoy the abbey or take a visit to the home of the Mountbatten family at Broadlands.
A little further afield you can venture to the scenic New Forest National Park, or the historic cities of Salisbury or Winchester, then if you still have time to spare take a trip to Mottisfont Abbey or the naval heritage of Portsmouth.
This gorgeous chocolate-box thatched cottage will charm you from the beginning to the end of your stay in this lovely location.

The vibrant Hampshire market town of Romsey can be found on the banks of the picturesque River Test, coveted by fly fisherman as one of the country’s finest chalk fishing streams. The 44-mile long-distant walk of The Test Way winds past Romsey and many other pretty villages, historic churches and country houses, following the course of the river, down to Eling on Southampton Water. The centre of Romsey offers visitors a fine selection of shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs to choose from, and a colourful three-day market provides the perfect place to peruse local produce. A visit to Romsey’s Noman abbey or to the home of the Mountbatten Family at Broadlands is a must. Nearby, the National Trust’s Mottisfont Abbey sits in attractive riverside gardens and is well worth a day out. Alternatively, take the short drive to the New Forest National Park, swathed in pretty heathland and grazed by wild ponies, cattle and deer.
