Description

Append your name to a guestbook of greats during a stay at Farleigh Wallop, a fine country house in the heart of Hampshire. Since the 15th century, the halls have played host to notable names in history, from her royal highness Queen Elizabeth 1st to the Romantic poet Lord Byron, and now the doors are open inviting you and yours for a truly memorable stay in the southern English countryside.

Set amidst a 4000-acre private estate, ten acres of which are for your exclusive use, the great outdoors at this luxury house in Hampshire offers days of endless activities.  There’s no need to pick between tennis, cricket or croquet as there is a pitch for each, ideal for jovial sports tournaments amongst family and friends. Elegant English rose gardens and budding orchards make for sweet-scented strolls, and fresh flowers are picked throughout the year to fill Farleigh Wallop with the aromas of the home-grown blooms. Wisteria and orange blossoms border the outdoor heated pool, which can be embraced from May through to September, idyllic on a warm summer’s day. Pack up a picnic with your favourite treats from the pantry and set sail on the calm lake in ‘Leaky’, the estate’s jokingly named rowing boat. The island in the centre of the lake makes for the perfect picnic spot, a finish line for a stand-up paddle boarding race or a spot of catch and release fishing.

Inside the traditional country house, you can truly make yourself at home. The glow of roaring fires on cooler days glimmers against enviable libraries and a grand billiard table, and you can pick from the drawing room or the striking octagonal room for a pre-dinner lounge. Tinkling ice against crystal glasses signals the start of the evening as you help yourself to the open bar, with tipples tailored to your choice. Wine connoisseurs will love the historical wine cellar, where a tasting can be arranged, and kids will love the cinema room for exciting movie nights. With a house manager and chef ready to cater to all your needs, you won’t have to stop enjoying all the house has to offer to prepare dinner. Simply decide when you would like to dine and the rest is taken care of.

After all the excitement of days filled with activities and adventure, you will be delighted to know the 11 decadent bedrooms are luxuriously lined with soft Egyptian cottons and each evening housekeeping provides a turn-down service, inviting you for a restful slumber. Each room has its own character: some with four poster beds, some with roll top baths but all designed with a strong eye for detail and a nod to the history of the house.

Whether you stay for a weekend, a week or longer, Farleigh Wallop will leave you with cherished memories of a sojourn in the English countryside.

Eating

Whether you would like to create your own menu or be inspired by seasonal menus brimming with local produce, the choice is yours. A chef is at your disposal for breakfast, lunch and dinner to cater to all tastes and requests.

The surrounding Hampshire countryside offers a bounty of goods: game from the hills, trout from the river and creamy cheeses from nearby farms are all staple highlights in the area. Green fingered guests will also love the kitchen garden, teeming with spring greens, artichokes and carrots in the vegetable beds which complement the dishes during your stay.

If you still find yourself peckish between three meals a day and afternoon tea, a pantry teaming with goodies is yours for the helping. And with an open bar included too, you can wet your whistle with a beverage of your choice.

Kids

Gadgets and gizmos will be well and truly forgotten by younger guests during a stay at Farleigh Wallop, with endless outdoor pursuits to fill their days.

Mountain bikes are at the ready for whizzing along the countless trails that zig zag the estate, and for Mums and Dads fearing being left behind in a cloud of dust, e-bikes have got your back. Kids will relish creating their own sports days filled with tennis, croquet, badminton and cricket, or for floating fun they can take to the lake on paddle boards or Leaky the rowing boat.

After a day splashing in the pool, kids can retreat to the cinema room and try sneak in one more film before bedtime.

With all of the above included in your stay, kids really will never tire of the activities available. However, a long list of extra activities can be arranged at an additional cost, from zorbing in the pool, archery and paintballing in the woods, to extraordinary entertaining performances of jousting horsemen and circus acts.
