Travel cot and highchair. Welcome pack. Sitting-out area and garden furniture. Landscaped grounds shared with other property on-site. Private parking for 2 cars 100 yards away. No smoking. Please note There is an unfenced pond in the grounds 100 yards away.\n This tastefully styled apartment makes an ideal retreat for couples or families. Steeped in history it forms a wing of Gilbert White’s House which is a leading visitor attraction and boasts 30 acres of beautifully landscaped tranquil gardens and parkland a shop museum and café. Guests are invited to enjoy unlimited visits to the museum which focuses on the lives and adventures of two members of the Oates Family Captain Lawrence Oates and his uncle Frank Oates both pioneers and explorers of the natural world. The property has been restored 2018 and offers comfortable and welcoming accommodation set over three floors. Adjacent to the café guests can access the stunning gardens anytime and dogs are welcome if they are kept on a lead during out of hours dogs can be off lead.\n\nOver 250 years ago Selborne and its surrounding landscape inspired Gilbert White to write about his lifelong investigation of the natural world producing his world-famous book The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne published in 1789. His book was important in shaping our everyday view of the relations between humans and nature. He was always a keen gardener who became closely interested in the natural world around him and grew a wide range of traditional and experimental fruit and vegetables. He was the first person in this area to grow potatoes and began recording methodically what he sowed and reaped the weather temperature and other details. This he went on to call his ‘Garden Kalendar’.\n\nThe house that Gilbert White’s family moved into when he was about 7 or 8 years old would have been a two up two down but over subsequent years lots of extensions and additions were made creating the house you see today. Descriptions in White’s own correspondence were used to recreate the rooms as they used to be and they include a chair he used at Oriel College Oxford loaned from the college items of contemporary furniture family portraits and bed hangings embroidered for him by his aunts. You can listen to a conversation Gilbert had with his sister-in-law in the old kitchen where you can learn more about his household and life in Selborne during Gilbert’s time.\n\nSelborne also has a pottery a pub and village shop and there is so much to discover in this popular part of Hampshire. The town of Alton is nearby where there are plenty of restaurants and shops as well as a mainline railway station The Watercress Steam Railway and also Jane Austen’s House at nearby Chawton. Other places of interest to visit include Portsmouth with the Spinnaker Tower HMS Warrior and HMS Victory as well as waterside dining designer shopping and ferry trips to the Isle of Wight. Also within easy driving distance are Winchester Cathedral King Arthur’s Round Table Southampton with its maritime history The New Forest historic Chichester with cathedral festival theatre Goodwood Racecourse beaches at The Witterings or Hayling Island Marwell Zoo Paultons Park with Peppa Pig World and Birdworld. Golf fishing cycling walking and horse riding are all to be found in the area. Beach 35 miles. Shop pub and restaurant 100 yards. \n \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/105/840/10597128.jpg UKC3314

    Beautiful apartment with stunning gardens. Super comfy beds and lovely bedding. We loved staying here and the kids adored playing in the huge garden! Would definitely recommend.



    out of 10

    The apartment is above a small museum and in acres of well kept green fields. It is managed by the museum team who were excellent to communicate with throughout. Cosy rooms, warm and well kept. Car park is about 100m up the road. But can park car just outside the cottage to offload. Wasn't a problem. Will definitely book again.

    A beautiful, well-equipped cottage, very comfortable beds and lovely grounds. We stayed here with some friends over the New Year and had a lovely time. The only downside for us was the property being on 3 levels and the twin room that should have been for the children didn't work as it was separate from the other bedrooms and closest to the property entrance, this concerned the parents who did not like the idea of their children being separated from them and closest to an external door. Other than this the property was fabulous, dog friendly and it was lovely to use the gardens and get free admission into the museum. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Very good appartment in unique location based within a museum. Kitchen was fully equipped and rooms were all beautifully presented. Only issue is parking is a couple of hundred meters away and road is very busy so access can be tricky on wet days and unloading/loading car.



    out of 10

    This is a unique place to stay - not only is the apartment very comfortable, but it is located within an historic building and includes access to the gardens, parklands and museums at Gilbert White's house. It was a real treat to stay here and to be able to enjoy the historic gardens in the evening when all the visitors had gone!

    Excellent property and great location. I will definitely return. Clean and comfortable and very quirky. Loved it.

    Beautiful Cottage with very pleasant, helpful, and polite caretakers accommodating a late arrival with a warm welcome. Only issue is that there is no direct parking to the property and therefore we were advised in advance to park at the pub a short walk away and drop off luggage and provisions outside the property on narrow through road. This road can be very busy at times.
