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 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.
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.

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!
There is a strict no smoking policy in The Hayloft and pets are allowed by arrangement only. They are not allowed upstairs with muddy paws in any circumstance and not allowed on furniture or beds please! I would really appreciate your co-operation in this matter.
