Historical setting for pretty city cottage

Historical setting for pretty city cottage

Situated on Hyde Church Path, this very pretty brick and flint cottage lies within a historical part of Winchester. Lying just outside the city boundary, Hyde was the site of a fine monastery and when the abbey church was consecrated in 1110, the bodies of Alfred the Great, his wife Ealhswith, and his son Edward the Elder were carried in state through Winchester to be interred before the high altar. Their royal presence made Hyde Abbey a popular pilgrimage destination.

Although Hyde Abbey was dissolved and demolished in 1539, the area established as a village on the edge of the city and the fine abbey gatehouse and the parish church of St Bartholomew survive, lending this quaint corner of Winchester a distinctive character and charm.

Nestling within this setting the pretty cottage has two reception rooms and a kitchen, with a door to the attractive enclosed garden, with two double bedrooms upstairs. Permit parking is available.

Today this part of Winchester is hugely popular with commuters due to the proximity of the mainline station and it also lies within walking distance of all the amenities within the vibrant city centre, leisure amenities and acres of open parkland.
