Mallard Cottage

A warm welcome to Mallard Cottage, an attractive 18th Century Grade II listed building, situated on part of the site where The Good Intent Ale House once stood, nestled in the heart of the historic City of Winchester.

Over the past 40 years our family has evolved the building into a home with original and natural character, where you can stay during your visit to the city.

Please don’t feel confined to our two light and airy en-suite bedrooms on a damp afternoon, as a shared guests kitchen and warm lounge await should you need some lazy time with a book, admiring the view across to Wolvesly Castle.

Or, on those warm mornings, enjoy our garden's beautiful nooks and niches along the tranquil winding path down to the River Itchen if in need of time away from daily life, watching the world pass by.

The Kitchen & Breakfast

You have full use of the shared guests kitchen throughout your stay.

For breakfast a selection of eggs, cereals, museli, porridge, toast, jams, croissants, fresh fruits, natural teas & coffee are provided for in the guests kitchen. A perfect way to start your day.

If preferred, a cooked breakfast can be provided on request for an additional fee.


Please let us know if you are coming by car as we have one private space should you wish to book this, provided the private space isn't already booked during your visit.

Alternatively, the public car parks in Winchester are free from 6pm to 8am every evening/morning. From Saturday night they are free from 6pm until 8am Monday morning.

Our recommendation would be Chesil Multi Storey Car Park, SO23 0HU, around £1.40 / 2hrs, situated approx 250 meters from the cottage.


Accommodation is available to children over the age of 5 who are accompanied by their parents.

Check-in / Check-out

Check-in from 3 -7pm. Check-out by 11:00am


Unfortunately, we regret that we don't accept pets at Mallard Cottage except for service dogs.
Reason – non allergenic area.
