    Boxwood sleeping up to 8 guests

    This carefully converted carpenters studio stands as one of a pair, on the edge of picturesque Owslebury, 7 miles from historic Winchester with its magnificent cathedral.
    Acorn Cottages are peacefully located within the South Downs National Park, yet conveniently situated for visiting many attractions. This converted carpenter’s studio offers two semi-detached properties, Boxwood (ref UKC1655) and The Joinery (ref UKC2198) and are an ideal retreat for families or couples. Both enjoy an open plan living area, lawned garden and a private hot tub.
    Winchester, Southampton and The New Forest are within easy driving distance. As well as its ornate 900-year-old cathedral, Winchester has a host of award-winning pubs and restaurants, as well as art galleries, Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium, and bustling markets. Rooksbury Mill Nature Reserve is perfect for those who like fishing in a beautiful natural setting, and Blackwood Forest is ideal for walking and cycling. Highclere Castle, famous for the TV show ’Downton Abbey’, is nearby and stands amidst 1000 acres of spectacular parkland. Explore the gardens, woodland and views of the Kennet Valley. Spend a day at Jane Austen’s House Museum, where the novelist lived for her last 8 years with her sister and widowed mother in this modest 17th-century cottage, in the picturesque Meon Valley.
    For the train enthusiast, take a nostalgic steam train journey on the Watercress Railway Mid-Hants line. Salisbury, Stonehenge, Christchurch, Bournemouth, Milestones Museum and the Hawk Conservancy Trust can all be reached within an hour. Nearby Southampton has ferry links to the Isle of Wight, which makes for a great day out. Slightly further afield, there are many historical nautical links in Portsmouth, with the famous ships of HMS Victory and The Mary Rose. Here, you can visit Spinnaker Tower and Gunwharf Quays for shopping, leisure and entertainment. The pretty sailing villages of Hamble-le-Rice and Warsash provide wonderful riverside walks and pubs overlooking the water. The New Forest National Park is easily accessible and has miles of scenic walks and bridle paths. You can often see ponies and cattle roaming the streets in one of the picturesque villages. For a family day out, visit Marwell Zoo, Peppa Pig World, National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, the New Forest Wildlife Park, Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Manor Farm Country Park and Exbury Gardens. London is an hour away by train. Beach 25 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Heidi – 27 Nov 2018
    "We had a super girly weekend. Everything about Boxwood made our stay luxurious and comfortable. Lots of lovely touches. Close to Winchester. We used the park and ride close by to get into the Christmas Markets."
    Sarah – 13 Oct 2018

    Lesley – 23 Aug 2018
    "We had a lovely stay here. Only downside there isn't a proper garden for dogs. The shower cubicles are small. Kitchen was very well equipped and accommodation was spacious."
    Anne – 23 Jun 2018
    "we had a wonderful time and it was so good that we have already booked for next year!"
    Kenneth – 7 Jun 2018
    "The cottage was well appointed and comfortable with the hot tub being a hit with the family. The limited parking for just 3 cars shared with the second cottage could be a problem if both cottages were fully occupied at the same time.The management of the cottage was excellent and the ability to contact the owner if there was an issue was appreciated. Not that we had any issues during our stay.We would certainly recommend the cottage."
    carol – 14 Apr 2018
    "Boxwood is a clean, modern, well equipped house which is open plan downstairs.We were a family group of 6 adults, 2 children and a one year old. There was plenty of room for all of us. Bedrooms and bathrooms are clean and of a good standardThe weather was not great but there was plenty to do for the children in and around Winchester. We visited Marwell Zoo, Manor Farm ( Peter Rabbit Trail was a hit with the children) Winchester Cathedral, Winchester Science Museum and we went bowling on a particularly wet day.The hot tub was a favourite with everyone.We had a lovely time altogether and this house is perfect for family/ friendship groups wanting to spend quality time together."

    "We had an amazing time in this beautiful cottage. There was 3 generations celebrating my birthday and mothers day. The kitchen was lovely and full of everything that you could want, the knives were particularly impressive which is something you don't find in most holiday cottages. I would highly recommend this cottage."
