I sat in the garden and read, the people working there were all lovely and said hi, it was quiet and no traffic noise, was lovely.

Atmospheric and full of history. Lovely setting on the water meadows - we saw a Kingfisher on our walk. Looking forward to a return visit.

A wonderful visit, the church is memorable, and the gardens, and the river edge are terrific. Very relaxing.

Sought this place out on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews and glad I did. Sunny day midweek, this was such a lovely oasis of calm, just to potter around the few open buildings or church and then stroll around the gardens and sit by the large pond watching the wildlife. Didn't try the tea room, but the cakes... More

We decided to walk by the riverside from Winchester to here and what a lovely tranquil walk which set us up for our visit. We entered the grounds and already found ourselves transported back in time. We had a very reasonable priced excellent cup of tea in the Hundred mans hall. Then we visited the lovely gardens and the church.... More

This glorious collection of historic buildings is advertised as being 'a short stroll' from the centre of Winchester: maybe it was just the route I took but I found that it was actually a good couple of miles out - it was a pleasant walk past some lovely old buildings but rather further than I was expecting when I set...

My twin sister brought us here last week. She was informed that the episode of the popular BBC series "Wolf Hall" used the lawned area for the archery scene. I am a history buff, so I really enjoyed seeing the buildings, and beautiful garden. Well worth a visit.

We were privileged to go on a special tower tour ledy by the amiable porter,Catherine Secker, to raise money for the Church heating fund. It surpassed my expectations. The church was beautifully lit and Cathy took us in every place she could so we explore all the nooks and crannies and hear about the history of the building. The views... More

I went today with my family for my graduation. It was serene and beautiful and such a lovely place to be. In all the craziness of the town, this truly does seem like a different world. The gardens are gorgeous as is the architecture, not forgetting the little tea shop.
