The fishery, on this world renowned chalk stream, has been in the same family for many years. It is set within approximately 63 acres of attractive water meadows, a haven for wildlife and an important ecological environment.

The grassland and other woodland have been largely left which has created a haven for wildlife including kingfishers and deer. The majority of the land and all the water courses are designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Geoff Jones, of agents Savills, said: “Fulling Mill is in a picturesque, secluded setting within a SSSI on the bank of the River Itchen, yet within easy reach of central Winchester. The house offers a fantastic opportunity for an incoming buyer to put their own stamp on it, with significant fishing and wildlife on the doorstep.”
