A smartly-renovated 19th-century pub with seven en suites; white linen and Watership Down lotions and potions. Breakfast is served in the conservatory or main bar; locally-sourced eggs and bacon, Stornaway award-winning black pudding, Hobbs House bakery bloomer bread.
There is an abundance of things to do and see, walk through the water meadows, take a short stroll to the iconic Bombay Sapphire Distillery, or the multi-award winning Hardys Cottage Garden Plants. Head to Vale Farm Fishery for fishing in the pretty River Test, stop off at Test Valley or Drummer Golf Club for a round or head to Highclere Castle – Downton Abbey fans will like this one.
Meals cooked by the in-house chefs are delicious and seasonal; try the braised ox cheeks and celeriac mash paired with a great selection of wine.
