Why we love this

  • Beautiful farmhouse on a farm estate in the Hampshire countryside
  • The local pub and Silchester’s Roman ruins are just a few minutes away
  • Hire the farm’s chef to cater for you to make an occasion extra special

The Farmhouse has been furnished and decorated with antique and locally sourced furniture and furnishings which blend beautifully with handpicked artwork.

There’s a large kitchen/dining space and two further receptions rooms for relaxing. A beautiful private garden awaits leading from the kitchen/dining room where you will find an extensive garden lawn with tennis courts at the rear.

If you don’t feel like cooking dinner, the farm’s chef can be hired to plan, prepare and cook a private dining menu.

There are seven bedrooms, each one individually decorated in the ‘house style’ which emphasises local and personal touches.

On the first floor there are five double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite with a further family bathroom. On the second floor there is a fabulous triple room with single beds and a beautiful double room.

Need more space? There are two separate properties at the farm, The Barnhouse and The Farmhouse which can be booked separately or together. You can also add a small, beautifully decorated, stand alone building for an additional two guests staying at either property. It has an en-suite shower room with tea and coffee facilities and a small fridge. The larger communal areas of the farm can be used with prior consent from the owners.

Hosting an event? There are two further large barns at the farm each with a capacity for 140 guests, plus a bar, an outside barn, parts of the grounds and an on-site catering service available – the ideal solution for a sophisticated, mid-week corporate event.

Please contact our Guest Services team to discuss your options.

The owners will greet you on arrival and show you into the property. A housekeeper is usually on site during the day. There may be other guests at the site as the farm estate also hosts corporate events and workshops.

The property has adopted many environmentally friendly measures including composting garden waste, recycling and replacing plastic where possible. The property also supports a native species planting scheme and encourages its rare breed sheep to mow the lawns ‘naturally’.

If you hire the farm’s chef, ingredients sourced from the kitchen garden or foraged from the farmland, along with produce from local suppliers, will be used.

If you'd like to offset the carbon emissions from your trip, get in touch and we can arrange this for a small fee.

    The neighbourhood

    The property is located on the owners’ farm estate in the Hampshire village of Silchester between Reading, Basingstoke and Newbury. The nearest pub is The Calleva Arms, which is just 1 minute away and serves first-class tipples and traditional meals.

    The town of Silchester is famous for its Roman connections and was once known as Calleva Atrebatum. After the Romans left the town, it was never reoccupied so what remains of the walls and amphitheatre are some of the best examples of Roman defences in England.
