Excellent Location In The Centre Of Town And Close To...
Excellent location in the centre of town and close to all eminities, shops, restaurants, cafes and the Mid Hants Railway ('Watercress Line'). Bedroom tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Friendly and helpful staff, willing to go the extra mile to meet guest's specific needs. The Mid Hants Railway is a marvel. Would have appreciated information on the timetable for trips to neighbouring New Alresford so that we could have planned our stay better and incorporated a trip on the railway."

Jane Austens House - Historical Houses

Jane Austens House - Historical Houses

Distance 1.21 miles (1.93 km)
The Jane Austen Museum is housed in a charming red-brick seventeenth-century house, listed in the National Archives as a building of historic interest. It was Jane's last home, where she lived with her mother and sister Cassandra from 1809 until 1817. Here Jane revised her earlier manuscript novels Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey, and then wrote Mansfield Park, Emma and Persuasion.The rooms on show include the drawing-room and the parlour where Jane wrote on the small round table. Upstairs is her bedroom with the patchwork quilt she made with her mother and sister. A pretty garden surrounds the house, stocked with many old varieties of flowers and herbs. Jane's donkey carriage is displayed in the old bakehouse.

Blackmoor Golf Club - Bordon - Golf

Blackmoor Golf Club - Bordon - Golf

Distance 5.35 miles (8.55 km)
Since its original design and formation by Harry Colt in 1913 Blackmoor has matured into a most beautiful heathland course which adheres to the modern tradition of the game. Located at the western end of the belt of glorious golfing country which covers the Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey borders, the Golf Club lies in a picturesque stretch of the dark purple heather from which Blackmoor takes its name. Groves of birch and fir abound, while the fine sandy soil, firm natural turf and the heather rough virtually guarantee the quality of the golf played throughout the year. Course maintained in top condition for golf all year. In order to maintain its position as one of Hampshire's finest courses, the Club has been involved in a heavy investment programme.
