The charismatic Georgian town of Alresford is becoming increasingly popular with the ‘escaping' from London crowd. It has that quintessentially English market town vibe but being only 7 miles from Winchester city centre you get the best of both worlds. Central Alresford has an array of homey shops from the popular high end fashion of Moda Rosa to the charming Alresford Linen Company where you can drop off the dry cleaning and browse for your home interior all in one visit!
Andrew is a long term Alresford resident and after many years of research can personally vouch for the fantastic array of coffee shops, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs. For such a small town you really are spoilt for choice with The Globe at the bottom of Broad Street and the mouthwatering Tapas served by Pulpo Negro being personal favourites.
The countryside and villages surrounding Alresford are some of the South East’s most stunning. Of particular note is charming village of Easton, with thatched cottages of all shapes and sizes, and with a number of meandering river side walks it really is a picture post card English village. Of course after a leisurely stroll the cherry on top is another of our favourite pubs, The Chestnut Horse, where you're guaranteed a warm welcome, a variety of ales and a superb garden to relax and quench your thirst in.
Alresford is well situated with the Cathedral City of Winchester and Alton offering regular trains into London Waterloo in under an hour. Access to the M3 is via junction 9, 7 miles away. Families are drawn to the area for the excellent schooling on offer for all ages in both the state and private sector.
