Chandler's Ford is a southern Hampshire town situated close to Romsey, and on the edge of the old railway town of Eastleigh, midway between Southampton and Winchester. The town's name derives from the fords which had to be crossed on the old road to Winchester. Although now known as a business centre, Eastleigh itself lies on the banks of the River Itchen, a well known chalk stream beloved by fly fishermen.Good transport links, by, road, rail, or plane (from nearby Southampton Airport), mean that this area is very easily accessible, and offers visitors an excellent touring base from which to explore this diverse area of the south

Hampshire offers a wealth of treasures, from rolling countryside, unspoilt beaches, glorious gardens and pretty villages to ancient forests, bustling market towns, historic ships and imposing castles.

Gas central heating. Electric double oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, DVD, iPod dock, WiFi, selection of books and games.

Lovely home, nicely furnished. We all felt that it was a home from home and felt really comfortable from the moment we entered the property.

This is a real home from home where the owners really care about their guests. The location was first class for exploring and having a shop and a pub only 5 minutes walk away was handy.

This a lovely property, with everything you could wish for during your holiday. The house is very well placed within an excellent location for exploring this beautiful part of England. The house is really comfortable, well decorated and maintained with very comfy beds, an excellent shower, and a beautiful garden. Too often the phase 'home away from home' is over used, but here it doesn't go far enough to sum up the amount of thought and care that has been put in by the owners of this property. It is the care and thought taken by owners such as these which allowed us to have such a wonderfully relaxing break. We would highly recommend this property to everyone.

We had arranged, with the owner (Jan) to collect the keys at a later time as we wished to visit Salisbury on our way to Eastleigh. The flexibility was good and worked well for us. We were met by the owner who told us about the keys, and about everything in the house. The owner is a very friendly person and willing to help if at all possible. On arrival there was a welcome package of Fresh Fruit, Orange Juice, Packet of biscuits, milk and a bottle of wine, an excellent welcoming touch. There is a booklet containing necessary information about codes for WiFi etc and local amenities. The house was spotlessly clean, every utensil for cooking you would every need was also available. The WiFi was excellent, not as some rentals where the signal is not so strong. There were DVD's, Books and CD's available if needed and for wet days. The area is nice, the garden is beautiful and well kept. There really isn't a downside to this holiday rental. If we get to visit this area again we would certainly look to book this house. Thank you for a most excellent accommodation which I would recommend to anyone. Bedding and Mattress - the only reason I scored good here was that for me personally, the mattress was a little soft but my partner said it was fine.
