About Txoko Cottage

Txoko Cottage sleeps six guests in three bedrooms and is situated in a peaceful location, in the picturesque Test Valley in Hampshire. With spectacular country views, welcoming cheerful accommodation and the shared use of a fantastic outdoor pool (heated in the warmer months), this delightful cottage is ideal for a family holiday.

The holiday cottage is well equipped with everything needed to self-cater offering a welcoming retreat from which to relax in a picturesque rural setting. Wildlife is in abundance with rare butterflies, varied birds and even deer that can be seen within the oak forest and amongst the hills - a real wonderland for children (and adults) to explore!

Located off a peaceful country lane, Txoko Cottage is an easy walk to the village store for stocking up on provisions. There are also numerous award-winning eateries locally for those seeking fine dining. Ideal for walkers, there are a network of footpaths and byways just waiting to be explored directly from the front door, along with the Monarch and Clarendon Way within easy reach. For those who enjoy cycling, the National cycle route (number twenty four) passes through the village and for the fishermen amongst you, the renowned rivers Test and Dun nearby provide excellent opportunities. There are also several golf courses close by along with horse riding and for those who enjoy a fine culinary experience, The Greyhound (Michelin Pub of the Year 2014!) is situated only eight miles away in Stockbridge (known as 'Hampshire's Little London'), which offers several gourmet eateries and independent shops.

Nestling amongst farmland and rolling hills on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border, the cottage is within easy driving distance of Salisbury, Southampton, Winchester, the market town of Romsey and the New Forest National Park with its many attractions. There are ancient market towns and quintessentially English pretty villages with thatched cottages to explore, along with many attractions with something to offer all ages including: Peppa Pig World, Paulton's Park and Marwell Zoo with its vast selection of endangered and exotic animals which are sure to please the younger ones; along with the stately home of Wilton House with its internationally important collection of art and beautiful parkland, the City of Portsmouth with its strong maritime roots and the Isle of Wight which is great for a day trip and ferry ride. Bournemouth (forty minutes by car), Bath and London by train are also easily accessible.
