About Us

Established 1992

Where there’s always room for you!

Nick & Graham are your hosts and provide a ‘home from home’ refuge for gay, bisexual and gay friendly straight men, as well as any lesbians, who wish to stay in their modern, central but secluded detached house – just outside the ancient city and former capital of England, Winchester.

about us

We pride ourselves in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where we invite you to treat our home as your home for the time you are with us. This is in the Kiwi or New Zealand Homestay tradition, rather than the more formal English B & B.

We cater for guests from Overseas who are visiting the UK, as well as for those from within the UK, and can offer helpful advice on tours and trips to places of local interest. Crowded House is ideal for those who wish to escape for a weekend break and also for those traveling for business in the week, who just want to see a friendly face in the evening.

We offer the utmost discretion for those requiring it.

crowded house

Our South facing rear garden stacked with flowers and shrubs surrounding a well-stocked fishpond fed by the relaxing sound of a cascading waterfall offers the perfect place to enjoy the sun (when available) in total privacy, to achieve that all over tan!

When the weather is not quite so warm we can offer our equally secluded conservatory to relax in, with a Gin & Tonic or two, complimentary cocktails and nibbles are served to all our guests on arrival.

We are only 40 minutes from Heathrow Airport; 15 minutes from Southampton Airport and 5 minutes by car from Winchester mainline station
(54 minutes from London Waterloo);

We offer courtesy pick ups from the station and Southampton, subject to time of arrival, and from London Heathrow, we can provide a collection service subject to a reasonable charge and by prior arrangement
