Mallard Cottage accommodation is situated on Chesil Street, an area of Winchester, England, United Kingdom, formerly known as Cheese Hill, just outside the city walls. From Mallard Cottage, you can see the Wolvesey Palace and Wolvesey Castle, the present and former residences of the Bishop of Winchester.
As you wander through the garden, which leads down to the River Itchen, you can relax in our summerhouse, or enjoy the views of England's first Capital City, nestling in the valley. From the garden, you can look out at Winchester Cathedral and Winchester College, and across the city beyond.
At the bottom of the garden, flows the River Itchen. The river, to quote from Barry Shurlock's 'The Winchester Story', "served the many mills of Winchester, England, most of which were owned by the Bishop", and, indeed, runs between two of them as it passes around the Wolvesey Castle walls.
The bedrooms offered as guest accommodation are each provided with tea/coffee making facilities, TV/video, radio alarm clock and hairdryer, dressing gowns and slippers, shampoo,conditioner, shower gel. All bed linen. Hand towels and bath sheets.
