A fabulous space in an oak-framed garden studio independent to our home with double bed, large shower room and tea and coffee making facilities, microwave and mini fridge. Within walking distance of the Watercress Line and less than 10 minutes drive to Jane Austen's House. We are also well placed for walks from the doorstep and the ancient and beautiful city of Winchester is just a 20 minute drive away.

The space
A lovely, private, light filled, purpose-built oak framed studio adjacent to but not attached to the main house. The studio is spacious with a large en-suite shower room and essential kitchen items such as a toaster, microwave, mini fridge, kettle and cafetiere. I provide porridge oats, honey, tea, coffee and a pint of milk at no extra charge.
The studio is fully insulated and heated with patio doors opening out onto the garden. It's a welcoming place to be whatever the season - cosy in the winter and flooded with light in the summer.
There is a double bed with a hugely comfortable mattress, feather duvet and pillows and good quality bed linen. There is a table for breakfast or work overlooking the garden and private patio area - ideal for enjoying a coffee or a glass of wine with beautiful rural views.

Where you’ll be

Medstead, United Kingdom

The studio is situated under 10 minutes drive from Alton, which is a small market town. We are within walking distance of Medstead and Four Marks Station of the Watercress Line (steam train line -not mainline!) which has many events throughout the year (eg War on the Line, Thomas and Friends, Santa Express etc) and the shops of Four Marks Village. There is a good traditional, village pub approximately a mile away and many others that serve fantastic food, local wines and ales all within a 10 minute drive.

We are also less than 10 minutes drive to: Jane Austen's House in Chawton; The Gilbert White Museum in Selborne; Alresford which is a traditional and pretty town with great pubs and restaurants and fabulous walks along the River Arle.

Historic Winchester with all of its attractions is 20 minutes away and Stonehenge and Salisbury around an hour's drive.

We are a good stop-off point for those walking the St Swithun's Way, well-placed for the South Downs Way for walking and cycling and we are within a 15 minute drive of The Grange Opera and around 10 minutes drive from Froyle Park, a popular wedding venue.

For those interested in the now booming English Wine Industry, there is a friendly, award winning winery and vineyard in Wield - Hattingley Valley - who will happily show you around with prior notice and there is Jenkyns Place Vineyard in Bentley too.

We have some great cycling routes from the doorstep and Chawton Woods is just up the road which offers local walks - perfect both for a muddy winter's stroll or a pleasant summer's one!

From a work point of view, we have had many guests who have had short to medium term contracts in Basingstoke, which is between a 20 and 40 minute pleasant drive, depending on the time of day and where exactly in Basingstoke. We have also accommodated contractors from Lasham Airfield and the film site there. Lasham is around a 15 minute rural drive across country.

I come from Hampshire in the UK. Have 3 kids and love to travel. We have used Airbnb as a family for the past 4 years and it's been fantastic for us. We have stayed on a houseboat in Amsterdam, two houses in Sydney , a fabulous villa in Mykonos and a great house in San Francisco. I like places to be informal yet welcoming and clean, with hosts who are friendly but leave us to enjoy our privacy. I hope all this will be reflected in the way that we host our guests too in our pretty part of the world.
