Riverside cottage is a detached thatched period property with a wealth of charm and character. There is a large private garden with swimming pool and terrace. Featured in The Sunday Times '25 great British holiday rentals'. Stunning holiday cottage nestled in 5 acres of beautiful gardens set on the banks of the River Dever. The cottage is a delightful example of a truly blissful country retreat with its thatched roof, cosy but spacious interior and wonderfully manicured gardens. Riverside Cottage gives a feeling of tranquillity and seclusion as soon as you enter its long driveway with everything a country goer may want and yet within walking distance of the little hamlet of Bansbury. This charming much loved home is within easy reach of the historic City of Winchester with its excellent shopping and restaurants. However, the setting is so pretty you may not want to leave at all! There is an impressive kitchen at the heart of the property with a traditional AGA, that no true country cottage is without, and is ideal for entertaining. This opens out on to the conservatory that has wonderful views of the surrounding grounds. The cottage has no shortage of traditional charm with original wood beams, comfy beds, unique furniture and cosy log burner to relax by and unwind after a long country walk. Although Riverside Cottage is set beside a river the 5 acre garden is fully fenced and gated to ensure everyone’s safety. No wonder the Riverside Cottage featured in The Sunday Times '25 great British holiday rentals' and guests return year after year.
