Owners' Comments

“Since moving to Michelmersh our lifestyle has been fantastic it really feels like you're on holiday every day of the week. There are stunning countryside walks, fantastic bike trails, and several pubs not to mention the fishing and we're just a 15 minute drive to Winchester. There is the national trust site on your door step along with great schools and a real sense of community....it will be greatly missed.”
