Bridge House

Bed & Breakfast

A country village, family-house B&B in the beautiful Itchen Valley, near Winchester... Michael and Steph immediately make you feel at home


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


A beautifully tended garden, with a paved breakfast area, surrounds this 1920s family home and the Grettons couldn’t be more hospitable: tea, cake and good talk on arrival; stacks of local knowledge. Family photos and evidence of Michael’s naval career personalise the elegant sitting room, with its open fire and doors onto the garden. Bedrooms – Yellow and Blue – are comfortable, pretty, immaculate, and the double overlooks the garden. Steph’s breakfasts are a happy mix of good things homemade and local. The old Watercress Line is nearby, Winchester is a draw and have you been to Jane Austen’s Chawton?

Superb B&B. Charming hosts. Lovely room with large double bed. Everything provided one could think of! Good gastropub for dinner about a mile away. Breakfast wonderful. Would like to find an excuse to return and stay longer; but a long way from Yorkshire!

Steph and Mike are the perfect hosts. The bedroom was lovely, comfortable and views of the garden. The bathroom had upmarket toiletries warm towels bath and walk in shower. We had a spacious lounge at our disposal with honesty bar and fresh milk each day in our bedroom. We were made very welcome on our arrival with a pot of tea and a selection of homemade cakes. The breakfast were plentiful and freshly prepared. Fresh fruit and then a cooked breakfast with fresh made toast. It was a great start to our holiday. We are planning to return next summer.

This bed and breakfast is one of the best I have ever visited. It is not only the wonderful house, garden and location - it is cosy, comfortable and the breakfast was great - wonderful combinations of fruits home made perfect granolas and more! What was most impressing: the hospitality and the care for every little single detail in the rooms and around were very impressing. I would always go there again and I want to give Mike and Stefanie Gretton my best regards


This is quite a wonderful place in all respects. Four of us have just returned from a 2 night stay - it was perfect - lovely hosts, so quiet, beautiful countryside and Stephanie's breakfast can't be beat. Hope to return again.


We were welcomed by our hosts with tea & melt-in-mouth homemade shortbread in beautiful garden. Then shown our immaculate bed- & bathroom with top-notch everything: linen, White Company robes, Molton Brown bath gel, soft snow-white towels, plus a mini supply of any/everything you could possibly need. And an adorable Spode Blue tea tray. Both mornings, best cooked breakfast I can ever remember + home made granola & fruit compotes. Mike & Steph are so hospitable, you feel like VIPs & never want to leave this haven in the lovely Itchen Valley.


Excellent hosts kind and helpful. Amazing breakfasts! We would definitely go again.
