Highfield Cottage offers bed and breakfast accommodation set on a country lane on the edge of the ancient village of Twyford some 2 miles south of Winchester. Enjoying a lovely mature garden the house has a fine westerly outlook across the Itchen river valley beyond.
The guest accommodation is in our barn annexe which is entirely self contained. We offer two en suite bedrooms, a double and a twin. Guests have their own entrance and have the use of a sitting room and fully fitted kitchen area, with a small terrace outside.
Decorated in simple, Scandinavian style with plenty of character, the "Barn" makes a very comfortable base for tourists or for anyone visiting on a business trip. Both bedrooms have TV's as does the sitting room with a DVD player.
