    “The owners were very friendly and helpful, giving us good advice about the local pubs and places to visit.”

    The hamper provided was very welcome. The location is lovely - great to sit outside on a warm evening and listen to the birds sing.

The property

Alresford 6 miles.Set in the traditional and attractive village of Wield in a superb rural Downlands setting on the edge of the South Downs National Park, Gibson's Hut stands in the owner's grounds, with uninterrupted views across fields and meadows.

This is the perfect escape to the English countryside, an opportunity to unwind and recharge, or grab a snatched romantic break.

Equipped for elegant comfort with plenty of thoughtful little additions to provide you with a memorable experience.

A showroom example, this Shepherd's Hut comes with all mod cons including electric underfloor heating, Wifi and a wood burning stove.

Inside a comfortable king-size bed is dressed with white linen.

There is a neat little kitchen area for rustling up meals which includes a fridge with freezer compartment for your all important gin and tonic ice, and a little Belling electric cooker.

A TV offers streaming for your favourite shows and a separate shower room completes the interior.

Enjoy your morning coffee outside at the bistro table.

There is also a fire pit to warm your toes whilst stargazing on balmy summer nights.

There is a wealth of countryside walks on the doorstep, or take a 15 minute stroll to the award winning pub The Yew Tree.

The pub is over the road from one of the South of England’s most delightful and picturesque cricket pitches.

Sunday cricket is a regular fixture here in the summer.

There is plenty to do further afield with Jane Austins House at Chawton 3 miles, The Gilbert White's House and Museum nearby, The Grange Opera (open May and June) and of course the city of Winchester with King Arthur's Table and the Cathedral.

Alresford is the nearest town offering an array of independent shops, a fine selection of great pubs, smart eateries & bistros and plenty of cafes and tea rooms.

Gibson's Hut is a wonderful opportunity for weekend and mid week breaks in the English countryside.

About the location


Winchester 7.6 miles, Basingstoke 15 miles, Guildford 30 miles

The Georgian market town of Alresford is made up of the village of Old Alresford mentioned in the Doomsday Book and the main town of New Alresford and in the 1860’s was connected to London by a railway line that was used to transport Watercress that the town was widely famous for producing. The line became known as the “Watercress Line” and still runs between Alresford to Alton through the picture perfect Hampshire countryside. Now this quiet and pretty town is the perfect place for a gentle stroll, where the colour-washed Georgian houses, independent and specialist shops are mixed with characterful pubs, modern eateries and traditional tea rooms. Enjoy the Riverside Walk where you will find the Fulling Mill built in the 13th century or visit the Old Alresford Pond that is home to an abundance of wildlife including otters and wildfowl. To fully enjoy the history of the town, take the Millennium Trail a series of footpaths that weave and interlink around the town.
