Built in the mid-1500s, this beautiful Grade I listed Tudor manor has a truly unique story. History is literally on your doorstep: the stunning location has played host to occupying Romans, a Tudor tryst and even a Civil War army. The grounds contain an ornate Roman mosaic floor and settlement remains. Henry VIII courted Jane Seymour here, and the D-Day landings were planned within the house. England’s last remaining Cromwellian Chapel in a private house is also here, and the property offers many more historical jewels for you to explore at your leisure. All of this comes with outstanding service, a restaurant that has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes, live entertainment every night, and a host of activities from tennis to air-rifle shooting.
If your a history buff this is the place for you! A guided tour of a wonderfully historic house, a Roman villa to visit with a mosaic floor second to none in the Uk, and spooky tales to whet a mystery appetite. The town of Hungerford is on the doorstep with many antiques to buy and look at. A Warner holiday break in a lovely spot with all the trimmings one comes to expect from Warner. You won’t be disappointed.
We booked an Historic courtyard room and was pleasantly surprised on arrival. The room CROMWELL was huge, very large bed and large bathroom with bath and walk in shower. The only downside to the room was a position of the safe, at the bottom of the freestanding wardrobe in a dark corner!! Not easy for an aged person to get down to and even harder to get up from !!!!!
The food was of the highest standard for both the breakfast and evening meal and the service matched it. Our table waiter Kris, was both efficient and humorous, and always helpful.
The entertainment was 2nd to none, on all four nights, comedian Ray Turner on night 1 was followed by a tribute to Cliff Richard,Shadow of Cliff. Night 3 we were entertained and enthralled with the singing of Sabatino & Sutcliffe with their tribute to Ball and Now. The final night was a real rib tickling show with Bruce Thompson and his one man band + adult humour. All in all 4 great shows. Late night in the Kennet lounge we were entertained by the Warner staff who had great voices and singalong time. Once again a slight downside, our table for the show No7, was very cramped and hard to reach when the theatre was full. The daily quizzes were fun to join in with, and although we had been to the hotel before we still doing exploring the old house, museum and gardens a pleasure. Yes, we will return to Little more
