Top choice bed and breakfast in Winchester

The word 'boutique' gets bandied around quite freely but here it really fits. The sumptuous conversion of this old dance hall sees an antique piano and honesty bar frame a wood-burning stove. Gorgeous bedrooms feature exposed brick, lofty ceilings, vast beds, and baths on the mezzanines with views of the stars.

Gourmet breakfasts include homemade granola, spinach waffles and tomato tart – on arrival you get a home-baked afternoon tea.
