Communication was fine. 
Hosts are next door. 
We did not meet them until 5 days into our stay. 
Entry was via lock-box. 
The cottage is charming, rustic, cosy. 
Low ceiling in the bedroom on the first floor. 
Kitchen is adequate for cooking simple meals. 
The location is excellent, about 5 blocks to the heart of Winchester, which is a charming town. 
Mews Lane is a charming street. 
There is a parking place in front.

Charming cottage. 
Good communication.

A great little cottage - but it is small. 
Great location and overall good value.

Desiree provided very adequate instructions to obtain the key and all worked smoothly. 

The apartment was clean and adequately appointed, with a small supply of essentials like tea & coffee. 
Provision of a microwave and a dust pan and broom would be an improvement. 

The location in Winchester is most convenient with an easy walk into the city and the local pubs are great. Provision of the very good local map and a suggestion to visit the local military museum which has lots of tourist information would be helpful; it also has a great coffee shop (The Little Kitchen Cafe) with free WiFi. 

Overall, we were most happy with our stay. Pity we didn't meet Desiree

Response from Karen & Desiree:

Hi Roy 

I'm sorry I was not here to welcome you to Mews Cottage but hope you had a lovely time. 

Sometimes little things go astray when I'm not here, so looks like the cleaners must have hidden the dustpan and broom. 

As you know the kitchen is very well equipped for such a tight space with a full size oven and hob and a dishwasher. We would love to squeeze in a microwave, but there just isn't the space. 

As you know Winchester is full of wonderful coffee shops and restaurants so we hope you got to try some of these. 

Kind regards Karen & Desiree

Wir waren 8 Tage in dem Cottage und rundum zufrieden. 

Bei der Ankunft eine herzliche Begrüßung. 

Im Cottage alles bestens. Sehr sauber, Betten bequem, Küche und Bad voll ausgestattet, Wohnraum gemütlich. 

Schöne zentrale Lage in Winchester mit allen wichtigen Attraktionen zu Fuß erreichbar, trotzdem eine geschützte ruhige Lage, in der man sich sehr wohl fühlen kann. 

Wir würden jederzeit das Cottage wieder mieten.
We stayed 8 days in the Cottage and completely satisfied. 

On arrival a warm welcome. 

In Cottage all the best. Very clean, comfortable beds, kitchen and full bathroom, living room cosy. 

Beautiful central location accessible in Winchester with all major attractions within walking distance, while a protected quiet area, where you can feel very comfortable. 

We would not hesitate to rent the cottage again.
Lovely guests!

Hello Désirée,
We have enjoyed our stay at Mews Cottage very much, the cottage offered everything we could wish for and was very comfortable. We were out yesterday morning and just passed at 12.30 to pick up our luggage and drop the key. I do hope everything was left in good order and thank you for a very enjoyable, although short holiday!
Kind regards,

Very pleasant little cottage, quite well equipped and cosy and in an excellent quiet cul-de-sac within easy walking distance of the cathedral, station, shops and restaurants. The bed is a little hard and the garden is shared so if you are a dog owner while this is a dog-friendly place be aware that there are usually other dogs around in the garden.

Response from Desiree: 

Thank you Christopher - Hope to see you again!

The cottage is a beautiful little home and we fell in love with it over the last week - if only we could live there all the time! 
It's only a few minutes walk from the town centre, the train station, local pubs and restaurants. 
The access to the garden is a wonderful bonus. Very quiet location, towards the end of a little lane that has no through access. 
We certainly hope to stay again.

This was by far the best out of the four we have stayed in so far on this trip. The owner made us very welcome while not intruding in any way. The cottage is beautifully located in a quiet lane which is a short walk from the town centre. It is very well equipped, especially if, like me, you need to cook for yourself. The garden is a real bonus, we enjoyed having our breakfast out there in the gorgeous sunny weather.

My stay at Mews Cottage was amazing! The cottage is as cute as the pictures make it look. The location is great - it is about a 10 minute walk to shops, restaurants and grocery stores in the down town area. The property manager was easy to communicate with before and during my stay. I would stay there again in a minute!

Response from Desiree: 

Angel was a delightful guest, unfortunately there was a glitch with the washer dryer whilst she was staying but it is fixed now. Still with some sunny weather and a clothes line in the garden and the help of the host, she managed to get through her washing mountain before heading back to the US. Safe journey Angel, hope to see you again!
