The Loft at St Thomas' - enjoy saintly style in an exquisite church conversion, set within the thriving heart of Winchester.

Situated in the heart of historic Winchester, St Thomas' Church was originally built in 1845 and is a Grade II listed building. Fast-forward to the 21st century, and the church has since been lovingly converted into nine unique apartments, each one immaculately styled and featuring all the beauty and grace of the building's original architecture, yet packed with contemporary creature comforts.

Sleeping up to four people in two king-sized bedrooms, the Loft is situated on the second floor of the church, accessed via its own private lift (though if you're feeling energetic, you could take the steps instead!)

Step into your holiday apartment directly from the lift, and feel as though you're staying in a five-star hotel suite! Marvel at the elevated ceilings and original arched church windows - all complemented by light wood, clean-lined décor and pristine furnishings, fixtures and fittings.

A welcoming, open-plan living and dining area comes equipped with Freeview TV and an integrated sound system... so whether you want to catch up on your favourite shows or enjoy some ambient background music, the choice is yours. Designer lighting helps set the perfect mood, while underfloor heating will help make everybody cosy on colder evenings.

The designer kitchen, equipped with the latest Miele appliances and completed with pure white minimalist style, is a pleasure to spend time in as you sip a glass of wine and peruse some favourite recipes!

Discover a cosy bedroom on the lower floor, furnished for comfort and featuring a deluxe ensuite shower room.

Head up the open tread stairs to the upper floor, where you'll find a second, curtained-off, bedroom (furnished with a king-sized bed that can also be made into two singles if preferred) with stunning ensuite bathroom that's equipped with a sumptuous roll-top bath.

Though you'll no doubt want to spend your entire holiday worshipping in church, it would be a shame not to go and discover all the charm and beauty of the local area - especially since there's so much to see and do right on your doorstep!

Winchester's celebrated medieval cathedral (the final resting place of the novelist Jane Austen) is a simple three minute walk from the church, along with all the shopping, dining and sightseeing delights to be found in the High Street... including Rick Stein's famous fish restaurant, should you feel inclined to pay a visit!  

So for a break that's truly heavenly, simply grab a few of your favourite people and congregate at St Thomas' - communion wine optional.

Things to note

No stag or hen parties, note the upper floor bedroom is screened off via curtain instead of a door.
