"Overnight stay to walk in the are"
This was a last minute booking for two adults and two children aged 8 and 11 and it really was pot-luck, but we were impressed with the family ensuite for size and facilities. Breakfast cereal, milk and juice in the room was a welcome idea too. Read less
Likes:
The staff were friendly and cheerful, and the pub food was great for one night. The girls were pleased that they had their own room and TV. Good outside space too (though mostly by the car park).
Dislikes:
The upstairs floor is a bit creaky but the guests were quiet from 10pm. A low hedge between the car park and the accommodation would improve the outside space.

The Carpenters Arms has 7 comfortable bedrooms which are located in the adjoining period property and offer quality accommodation to suit a variety of budgets. Our rates are inclusive of tea, coffee, cereals and toast for breakfast available daily from 7.30 am weekdays and 8.30 am weekends served in the pub where we offer cooked breakfasts alongside for an extra charge. Our family room is pet friendly so if you want to bring man's best friend please make sure you book this room only to avoid disappointment. Located just four miles from Newbury and quarter of a mile from the Newbury bypass (A34, Tothill Services), in the village of Burghclere, The Carpenters Arms is also a country pub with a big reputation for its food.

The Newbury area has a wealth of great days out for all the family to enjoy. Experience fun times for families at Beale Park, Bucklebury Farm Park and Krazy Klub Activity Centre. Feel history brought alive at Basildon Park, Shaw House The Sandham Memorial Chapel and Highclere Castle. Be entertained at one of three theatres in and around the town or watch the latest movies at the seven screen cinema in the town centre.

The area offers superb fishing on the River Kennet, inspiring walks across the Berkshire Downs or relaxing trips on the Kennet and Avon Canal. At no cost at all you can explore Donnington Castle, Greenham Common and the Thatcham Nature Discovery Centre.
