The owner of this quirkily designed and utterly unique house, Hannah, has a natural knack for taking properties that feel a little lost in their purpose, and turning them into modern hospitality spaces. Her other project, 16a Winchester, was once a former livery, then a dance hall. Two Bare Feet was a scout hut then an office before Hannah beautifully refurbished it with her excellent eye for splashes of colour amid serenity, and a respect for the building’s original charm. Now a state-of-the-art self-catered property, it makes the perfect base from which to explore the picturesque cathedral city of Winchester. Hire the whole place and make use of the excellently equipped kitchen for a family weekend away, or book one of the three individually designed, fresh and contemporary duplex style bedrooms with snazzy en suites as a bolthole for a work trip. While you’ll be left to your own devices, expect to find hotel-style luxury touches such as Egyptian cotton sheets and fluffy white towels. Eggs and bread are included, and there is a brilliant breakfast honesty tray for any extra morning nibbles. As comfortable as it is convenient.
Winchester Cathedral – Right slap bang in the heart of town. You can’t miss it. Make sure you see the crypt!
