"Very pleasant and convenient location for visit to Battle Proms at Highclere House"
We were very happy to find quiet location so near to Highclere House. The room was very small with low sloping ceilings and the staircase was tricky due to the age of the property, but the bed was really comfy and the bathroom was new with plenty of piping hot water. We didn't stay for breakfast but wished we had as it looked and smelt great. Would recommend to those who like quirky places to stay! Read less

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 Center.
