Tash & Richard

The cabin in Louise's garden was absolutely gorgeous- we loved it and only wish we had more than a night to enjoy it. It's perfectly designed with a place and purpose to everything, it really is a pleasure to see. We had a very comfortable nights sleep, made use of the DVD collection and were very grateful for the generous continental breakfast.


We instantly felt at home in the pod. Its clean and comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. Louise was a very welcoming host - thank you for the mini wine & chocolates! I would recommend this place to anybody looking for a relaxing stay in a beautiful location.


Wonderful relaxing stay at the Armadilla. Louise was helpful and always just a text away if I had any issues. The location was perfect for me- just out of town but very easy walk or bus journey in. The pod itself was modern, clean and very efficiently organised- everything I was after. I couldn't have asked for more!


We had such a great time staying in the Armadilla! Louise is really sweet and we were met with smiles, happy giggles from children, fresh flowers, and a lovely assortment of snacks--as well as freshly squeezed orange juice for morning. Winchester is gorgeous, and it was very easy to get to the City Center from this quiet neighborhood retreat. I hope to return someday!


We had an absolutely fantastic time in the Armadilla! A very cleverly designed annex with so much charm. The mood lighting, underfloor heating were fantastic luxury facilities we really appreciated! Louise was a brilliant, welcoming host explaining everything clearly and giving some great food recommendations. She has really thought through additional touches to enhance the stay. Definitely recommend a stay here!


The Armadilla was exactly what I was after and the listing described it perfectly. It was spotless! I was here for a course but did walk into Winchester one evening which only took about 20 minutes. I would like to come back and visit the area properly at some point in the future. Louise was there when I arrived to show me the ropes but then left me to it which was perfect for me. The armadilla felt very private despite being so close to Louise's house. Thanks.


We stayed in the pod for 2 nights during a visit to Winchester. The pod was very cosy and cute and had everything we needed for our stay and also nice touches such as a little bottle of wine! Louise was very helpful host and gave us tips for dinner but was also unobtrusive and left us to ourselves to enjoy our stay. I would definitely recommend the pod, it was close to the city and Winchester and the surrounding country side is lovely to explore!


A wonderfully designed and well presented place to stay for a few days. The Armadilla was spotless and well stocked with breakfast things, tea and coffee, milk and bread and a nice bottle of wine and chocolates and pastries. Everything worked well with lovely shower, TV with DVDs to play, CD player and selection of CDs, all you need to do is sit down and enjoy! Hosts were very pleasant and provided privacy at all times and stocked up fridge etc when we were out without disturbing the way we left things. Would highly recommend.


Unser Aufenthalt bei Louise war wundervoll. Die kleine Hütte ist sehr stylisch eingerichtet und man findet dort alles, was man benötigt. auch für ein kleines Frühstück wird gesorgt. Louise ist ein zuvorkommende und umsichtige Gastgeberin. Die Kommunikation mit ihr verlief reibungslos. Man erreicht das Appartement am besten mit dem Bus 3 oder 7, zu Fuß 35 min. Ein toller Ort um sich zu entspannen!


The pod was perfect for my silent retreat. It has everything you need for a few nights stay. It is inspirationally designed and Louise and Josh are great hosts. I loved it so much I am considering buying one myself and certainly I'd be back to visit Louise and Josh!
