The Hayloft, part of Crabwood Cottages, is a peaceful rural retreat, ideal for couples, with lovely views and wonderful forest walks on your doorstep, yet perfectly located to explore The South of England and nearby cathedral city of Winchester, especially at this time of year when the fabulous Winchester Christmas market is open and the ice rink, both in the awesome cathedral grounds!

The space

The Hayloft has been tastefully converted to provide a wonderful open plan space ideal for couples wanting to get away from it all, or overnight business trips. There is a lounge and sleeping area upstairs with an ensuite and a kitchen/sitting area downstairs. In memory of its past life, the snooker/pool table still exists so for those that fancy a go……go for it! A veranda and balcony provide stunning views over rolling fields allowing you to enjoy the tranquility of the countryside but still able to enjoy the amenities of the nearby city of Winchester.

Guest access

The beauty of The Hayloft is that you can choose to cook your own dinner that can be supplied by us, nip into the wonderful Cathedral city of Winchester to choose from the many fantastic restaurants, or just go to the highly recommended Plough Pub in the village.
A large selection of breakfast delights are supplied for you to prepare and eat at your own leisure.

Interaction with guests

Check in and out can be flexible but generally access will be from 3pm and check out by 11am.

Other things to note

WARNING - as the photos show, there are low beams on either side of the room upstairs, and if you are VERY tall, the ensuite is compromised!

The Hayloft is a great hideaway, close to Winchester. Has a stunning outlook into the open countryside. Welcoming, charming and cosy with lots of personal touches. Super facilities for a longer stay also, lovely breakfast provided. Nearby pub with good food and friendly atmosphere.

Another gem of an Airbnb property. The location is stunning with horses, alpacas and white geese in the paddocks and woodland walks from the doorstep, yet only 10 minutes from Winchester. The Hayloft is beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard although the shower room is very tight. There was lovely selection of fresh produce left for breakfast and we found a Waitrose and Aldi very nearby to buy some other bits. Local pub highly recommended. Thanks very much Debbie, we thoroughly enjoyed our break.
