The Carnarvon Arms is a country inn, located next door to Highclere Castle, on the route of The Wayfarers Walk. This Grade II listed building offers guests free onsite parking and free WiFi... Close location to Highclere Castle, staff was very helpful with hailing a taxi, handling our bags, holding our luggage. Very friendly, quaint inn.
The Jack Russell has a restaurant, bar, a shared lounge and garden in Andover. This 4-star inn offers a concierge service. Is located in a beautiful scenery, the place is really nice and cosy, the bedroom was perfect for a family, very comfortable beds. Showers were modern and good. To finish off the food (dinner & breakfast) was excellent, cooked with good quality all local products. Would love to repeat the experience!
Located in Newbury, The White Hart Inn offers accommodations with free WiFi and flat-screen TV, as well as a restaurant. A mini-bar and kettle are also available. Would have preferred a cooked breakfast but the continental takeaway breakfast was good. The room was lovely and clean and the staff were very welcoming.
In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty amid the North Wessex Downs, Esseborne Manor offers luxury rooms and fine English cuisine. With 3 acres of gardens, there is free Wi-Fi and a library. I stayed two nights and it was a warm and friendly experience with one of the best dinners I’ve had! They have gorgeous grounds to meander around and it’s close to Highclere Castle (where Downton Abbey is filed!)
The Annexe, Upper Rooksnest is located in Inkpen and offers a tennis court. The accommodation is 25 miles from Swindon, and guests benefit from private parking available on site and free WiFi. Cosy, warm, super clean, quiet! Beautiful setting. Thoughtful touches like milk, eggs bread left. Pub down the road!
Really enjoyed our day here . They opened early as they were expecting to be busy so we got our castel tour over with before the crowds. Great for any Downton Abbey fans!! Lovely gardens and grounds . Plenty to do for a day. Loved the appearances of Lord and Lady Carnavon during the day. Lovely cocktail bar selling fizz.
The place itself is fine. Not overcrowded with tourists. But the lecture offered as part of the tour should be about the house, not about other estates that are not related to England/United Kingdom, and the period. I did not travel to Highclere to hear about estates in the USA. People go there to hear the story of this house brought into the public attention worldwide by the TV series "Downton Abbey". Tell us the story of YOUR house !
We had a very informative day at High Clere. The Duchess spoke at length and we had time to ask her questions. She was also in the tea room at the end of the tour which was good of her. The guide we had was excellent, obviously knew the house and history well and lived nearby. Plenty of time to see rooms. Lots of information about its time as Downton Abbey, less about its time as Totley Towers, The Bassets House in Jeeves and Wooster, which we had enjoyed. The lunch was very tasty.
Great countryside Lovely place Donnington castle Beacon hill Relaxing break We wanted to go to living rainforest but didn't have time but will next time, this year Highclere castle closed I've visited the area twice in a few months And hope to go to highclere castle one day
We stayed at the Yew Tree because we were going to the Watermill Theatre and this hotel looked as gorgeous as indeed it turned out to be. We ate dinner at the Theatre, which we have done before. The Watermill is a beautiful theatre with stunning grounds, great bar and a buffet style restaurant with a good selection of hot and cold food which is extremely reasonably priced. Having said that though, we had not encountered the fabulous breakfast which was offered by the kitchens at the Yew Tree!! Next time we shall be treating ourselves to an early dinner at the Yew Tree and then going on to The Watermill. Our stay at the Yew Tree was all too brief because we arrived in the late afternoon had a drink in the hotel, settled ourselves in and then went off to the Watermill - we only stayed one night and so after the stunning breakfast we took ourselves off for a walk through the lanes and byways in an attempt to glimpse Highclere Castle in the distance. We had hoped to do a tour of the Castle but it is closed on Fridays, so we had to do with a glimpse!!
Highclere castle was the destination. Disappointed kitchens and servants quarters were not open to the public but a beautiful building nonetheless. Yew tree inn was excellent place to stay. Food top quality.
The cute pod, quietness. It was wonderful!
