Woodman's Loft Cottage in Alton, Hampshire - 1 bedroom, sleeps 2 + 1 child

Woodman’s Loft is surrounded by beautiful Hampshire countryside and tucked away in the grounds of Southfield House. The property is above the garages of Southfield House providing idyllic self-catering accommodation for those looking for self-catering holiday or simply a weekend away. It would be an ideal base for a couple looking to explore all that Hampshire and its surrounding counties have to offer. It is just a stroll to the local pub or the golf course and yet just an hour by train to London so you really can have the best of both worlds!

Southfield House itself is set in 4 acres of bluebell woods, gardens and paddocks and as such Woodsman’s Loft has stunning views over the fields.

It has a rural feel and yet you are only 2 miles from Alton which is very pretty with numerous shops, boutiques, restaurants, pubs and cafes. There is also a leisure centre and listed picture house (cinema) in Alton. Just slightly further at Basingstoke, you will find an ice arena, waterpark and another cinema. Winchester and Guildford are all within half an hour’s drive of the property.

Right in the heart of Jane Austen Country, 3 miles from Chawton (Jane Austen’s House), and on the edge of the South Downs National Park there is so much to do that you may find a week just isn’t enough! Gilbert White's house is in Selborne, and the Georgian towns of Odiham, Farnham and Arlesford are just 15 minutes away. Go Ape at Alice Holt Forest is nearby and don’t forget the local pub, The Golden Pot, is just a stroll away at the end of the driveway!


Woodman’s Loft has been beautifully designed and well thought out. The owners have created a very comfortable holiday property that will comfortably sleep 2, plus a child (3 at a maximum). Situated above the triple garage of Southfield House, the property has a good sized double bed (a cot or child’s bed can be supplied at request) The open plan sitting room/kitchen is spacious with ample space to sit and relax on the sofa. There is a TV with Sky and SkySports and a DVD should you want some time to sit and relax. The property also has free WIFI. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would want for a self-catering holiday. There is a cooker, hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer so that you can create delicious meals should you wish. The dining area has a table and chairs. The bathroom has a bath with shower over it and there is a washer/dryer. The owners provide all linen and towels so that it is one less thing to think about!

Outside, Woodman’s there is ample parking and a small patio area with a table and chairs and a charcoal BBQ so that you can enjoy the long warm summer evenings. Please note that the stairs up to the property are quite steep so not suitable for the less mobile.
