All on the\n ground floor.\n\n\nLiving room \nWith electric wood burner and Freeview TV.\n\nKitchendining room\n With electric oven electric hob microwave fridge dishwasher and coffee machine.\n\nUtility room\n With washerdryer.\n\nBedroom\n With super kingsize bed.\n\nShower room \nWith shower cubicle and toilet.\n Oil central heating electricity bed linen towels and Wi-Fi included. Welcome pack. Small front sitting-out area with garden furniture. Private parking for 1 car. No smoking.\n Little Trout is a charming comfortable single-storey thatched annexe forming a wing of the owner’s main home which dates back to the 17th century and has an interesting past Historians have said that it was formerly a drinking establishment referred to as The Trout Inn and it was also a tea room. In the late 19th century cricket bats were made and sold at The Trout to the great W.G. Grace amongst others using the local Wallop willow which was considered perfect for the purpose. Some even maintain that the village name inspired the phrase about giving a cricket ball a ’jolly good wallop.’\n\nLittle Trout is nestled in the pretty village of Nether Wallop in Hampshire’s Test Valley. Consisting of Nether Wallop Middle Wallop and Over Wallop the Wallops are mentioned in the Domesday Book. In 1984 Stephen Pile a writer for the Sunday Times who also wrote The Book of Heroic Failures was apparently fed up of going all the way to Edinburgh to the Arts Festival so asked his friends where else they could hold an event. Someone suggested Nether Wallop. From there the Nether Wallop International Arts Festival was born and in 1984 a host of stars of the time came together in a tent on the village playing fields including Bill Wyman Jessye Norman Jenny Agutter and Sir Michael Hordern. Comedians such as Rik Mayall Hugh Laurie Stephen Fry Peter Cook Billy Connolly Mel Smith and Rowan Atkinson all took part and this paved the way for the first Comic Relief.\n\nThe area is known for its lovely walks and excellent trout fishing. There is a footpath behind the cottage which is ideal for dog walks and fishing can be found 3 miles away by prior arrangement only. There is an historic church dating back to the Saxon era a playing field and a village tennis court about ½ mile away. The area is also renowned for the BBC version of Miss Marple and the front porch of Little Trout was actually used as the village chemist’s shop in the episode ’Murder at the Vicarage.’ \n\nLittle Trout is 12 miles from the cathedral cities of Salisbury to the west and Winchester to the east and within easy driving distance of the New Forest National Park. Other places to visit include Stonehenge Mottisfont Abbey Danebury Iron Age Hill Fort Hinton Ampner The Museum of Army Flying at Middle Wallop Highclere Castle Beaulieu Motor Museum Buckler’s Hard Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium Wilton House and Thruxton Circuit. Stockbridge is about 4 miles away with a selection of shops eateries and inns. Shop 2 miles pub and restaurant 1½ miles. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/106/840/10674365.jpg UKC3958

    The cottage was well equipped and we received a very friendly welcome and a good introduction to the cottage. Mr Whitaker, the owner, had very helpfully, emailed to introduce himself as soon as I made the booking - a nice touch. The local info available in the cottage was comprehensive and appropriate for our visit. Mottisfont NT site is well worth a visit and dinner in the Tally Ho at Broughton should not be missed. Being a 'cold person' I would have liked the cottage to have warmed up more quickly (we were there at the end of January), but the additional heaters were a big help. My wife, on the other hand, was quite happy with the temperature. Given the nature of the building heavy rain can sound quite noisy on the roof fanlights but not too big a problem! This is a lovely part of the country and the cottage is well placed to enjoy it. Despite my minor 'gripes', we would visit again and recommend it to others.
