About the neighborhood
The Itchen River valley is famous for Watercress farms, and a wide variety of fine country pubs like the Thomas Lord, named for the Founder of Lords Cricket ground in London, amongst other fine dining experiences like the Michelin Starred Black Rat, or the River Cottage. The Neighbourhood is listed as 'Arelesford' which is a village out of the city, but Holiday lettings have been advised that the actual location is in fact in the City of Winchester.
Getting around
Winchester has a notorious one way system around town, but good connections to bus, rail and airports, so please don’t hesitate to ask for advice and help with travel arrangements.
