Charming cottage in Longparish, Andover, Hampshire, England

Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms / Secluded, Peaceful Central Location / Easy Access To Numerous Activities & Country Walks

Eastfield House Lodge is a charming two bedroomed cottage (sleeps 4) set in secure private gardens, offering a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere for those seeking a break from this mad world! The building has been recently converted and completed in January 2014 to a very high standard; it is well insulated, double-glazed and centrally heated (under floor heating on the ground floor). Free wifi is available.

On the ground floor, you will find a fully equipped kitchen (including food processors/mixers and Nespresso coffee machine) opening onto a spacious dining area, a sitting room, shower room and utility room (with washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing equipment). From the dining area, stairs lead to the 2 bedrooms - one with ensuite shower room, the other with a vanity unit. Each room has 2 single beds which can be made into a Super King size bed according to preferences - all bed and house linen are provided and there is a hair dryer.

We provide a lot of basic items, such as coffee capsules, tea, sugar, dishwasher tablets, kitchen and loo rolls, cleaning products, hand soap and toiletries.

The cottage enjoys a secluded position with lovely views over the lake and large garden - guests are welcome to use the family tennis court. The property is located in the attractive and ancient village of Longparish in Hampshire. The village has 2 pubs (each with a restaurant) and a shop/PO.

Ideal for a relaxing, peaceful break/holiday with the added attraction of a comprehensive choice of beauty and spa treatments available in the main house, just across the drive.

The property is very easily accessed via the B3048, from the A303/M3 and A34 dual carriageways, offering good communication E-W & N-S to Winchester or Newbury (20min), Salisbury (30 min) and Stonehenge (25 min); London/Heathrow (45min-1hr), Southampton Airport (40min), Portsmouth channel port (1hr); Whitchurch/Andover railway stations (15min) - good connections to London Waterloo (1hr).

About the Owner

My name is Bénédicte – I was born in Geneva (Switzerland) where I lived with my family until I married Roger, my English husband, and moved to the UK in 1989 - we have one son who presently lives with us and a (very spoilt!) friendly black Labrador.

Roger also has 2 sons from a previous marriage and 5 lively grandchildren.

In 2003, I refurbished a house I owned in the French ski resort of Les Carroz, into 3 apartments and rented them out through Owners Direct. I really enjoyed making sure people had a good time and we had lots of repeat bookings; however, the distance made things a bit heavy to manage after a while so the property was sold eventually.

During that period, I also trained as a beauty therapist and image consultant and started working from home.

Roger is retired but very active and busy - he helps a lot with everything. He is passionate about flying, motor racing and sailing and has written 5 adventure novels with a new one underway.

Beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has been refurbished to a high standard. The most important thing to us was how spotlessly clean everything was. Longparish is a lovely village and is within easy walking distance. There are two good pubs and a very small shop to buy a few essentials. We had a wonderful time touring the area and would highly recommend staying at the Lodge at Eastfield House. Only negative was that there was no wifi.

Comfortable and clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

Set on a five acre property this lodge is secure, warm and cosy. It had all we needed for three people with a bathroom and ensuite. The kitchen was lovely to cook in with a separate dining area to eat in. Also a separate lounge to relax in. We wandered around the roads of Longparish admiring the thatched homes, heard and saw the locals ringing the bells at the local church and saw what we thought were trout in the Test River - it was so peaceful. Travelled around the country roads locally and also down to Southhampton and Portsmouth. Highly recommend this location.

Lovely property with excellent facilities

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location and facilities for our planned short break which included a craft workshop at the nearby Fairground Craft & Design Centre. Stunning grounds and nice walk following designated path across field and through church to find the village pubs mentioned. Sadly one was up for sale and the other only serves food Weds- Sat. Otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable stay and will certainly come again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments - we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us but are very sorry about your mishap with the village pubs. Indeed, it is rather unfortunate that one of them had to close recently (despite winning awards) and the other one did not serve food mid-week; it is in the process of also being closed in order to be refurbished and re-organised, which might be the reason for having suddenly stopped serving food mid-week. This is why we recommend the lovely pub in the next village when people arrive and have pinned their details on the notice board, together with some other alternatives in the surrounding area. Hopefully, it won't be too long before Longparish gets its pubs back and we might have the pleasure of welcoming you again in the future. Best wishes. Benedicte & Roger

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with Eastfield House and the area when we first visited it. Despite needing a lot of work, both the house and the garden instantly felt like home. We liked the seclusion and rural feel that gave the impression of being remote - yet so easy to access - being able to get to Heathrow in just under an hour was a real bonus. Longparish village is beautiful with several bridges over the River Test - famous worldwide for fly fishing - and lovely walks in the surrounding countryside. Over the years, we refurbished the house and outbuildings and improved the garden. In January 2014, we completed the conversion of Eastfield House Lodge for our future retirement and decided to let it out in the meantime for holiday/short term breaks, like we used to do in France. After refurbishment, we are now also offering The Studio Loft apartment in another outbuilding.
