Four Marks & Medstead Watercress station is just a 10mins walk from our home where you can see steam trains passing.
Jane Austen’s home in Chawton is 5mins drive away.

We are located on the edge of the South Downs 30/40mins from larger towns (Farnham, Basingstoke, Southampton and Winchester).

The space
Our house is situated in rural Medstead village, on the edge of Four Marks village with easy access to the A31 Winchester Road. We are 5mins from Chawton village (the home of Jane Austen) & 10mins from Alton Market Town and station.

We live in a newly built house, with open, quiet space to the front of our house and a large garden to the rear which is not overlooked.

The room is a spacious double bedroom with a king bed plus an en-suite, looking out to the rear of the property towards the steam train line. Included in the room is a small convenience fridge, kettle with complimentary tea and coffee plus a hairdryer and a safe. WiFi is available for guests also.

We also provide a basic ‘help yourself’ style breakfast which includes a selection of cereals and bread for toasting.

We have local convenience shops within a 5minute walk plus a range of takeaway options for dinner. Guests are welcome to use our kitchen to eat dinner if they use the takeaway options.
There are other dining options a short drive away.

Where you’ll be

Medstead Alton, hampshire, United Kingdom

We love living in this area, based in a rural location with a few small shops offering essentials close by. We have provided a comprehensive guidebook along with our listing - please check this out.

We are lucky to have a range of places to eat in the evening close by including a Curry, Chinese, Fish and Chips and Kebabs. There are also a range of restaurants and pubs within 10/20mins drive which are often recommended. There are a number of independent cafes within a short walk or a longer hike (depending on your preference) which are excellent. Some of these include Loaf, Garthowen Garden Centre Treetops Cafe & Nosh.

An adjacent village, Chawton, was the home of the Author - Jane Austen. You can visit her home and garden. Chawton house is also open for visits. Central to the village is an old English pub and a tea room to offer a variety of refreshments.

Selborne is a 20minute drive away, the old, quaint village of Gilbert White.

Other local attractions include:
Alice Holt (biking, running, walking trails including the Gruffalo and Zog trails)
Birdworld
Marwell zoo
Winchester Science museum
Lavender Fields
Hattingley valley wines
Lasham gliding
Triple F Brewery with a bar (in walking distance 5mins)

The area is a great stop off spot for commuters and we also have local businesses operating in the area, such as Blindingly Simple which offers courses for home furnishing (10 min walk).

We also offer an Airbnb private room in our home. We enjoy hosting as much as travelling and staying with other hosts.
