About the hotel

This country inn is ideally located within a few minutes from the A34 and historic market town of Newbury and Highclere Castle . It prides itself on offering a warm welcoming environment with a large restaurant, modern accommodation, complimentary free Wi-Fi and free onsite parking. The Carnarvon Arms is a Grade II listed building dating all the way to the 1800’s.

Back then it was a coaching inn, providing refreshment and rest for travellers to nearby Highclere Castle. For those looking for a unique alternative to the more conventional conference centres, the two meeting rooms provide intimate and informal surroundings without compromising on professionalism. Weddings and parties are also catered for. Whatever the occasion, the team is on hand to ensure a smooth running and hassle-free service providing that unbeatable combination of flexibility, and value for money. All rooms offer toiletries, flat-screen plasma TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. Both Twin and Double Rooms are available and some rooms offer baths as well as showers. Our experienced kitchen team source as many ingredients as possible from locally based suppliers to ensure freshness and the shortest route to table, including organic meats and vegetables. The Carnarvon Arms is perfect for leisure and business travellers, providing an accessible location with free on-site parking, making it an excellent base from which to explore the many wonders that the local area has to offer. If you take Junction 13 off the M4 towards Newbury the hotel is only a further 16 minute drive from the town centre. Alternatively it is 40 minutes from Junction 6 of the M3 via Basingstoke. Both of these towns offer excellent rail links to London and other major cities, and there is also a bus route that runs past the hotel. For those flying in, Britain’s largest airport Heathrow is approximately a 70 minute drive away. The Carnarvon Arms is situated close to the village of Burghclere, the location of Sandham Memorial Chapel and the awe-inspiring Highclere Castle, the historic home of the Carnarvon family and the filming location of the popular drama series ‘Downton Abbey’. Often described as the finest example of an occupied Victorian Castle in England, this architectural masterpiece is steeped in historical significance and houses a vast collection of rare antiquities and art. A few minutes’ drive away is the town of Newbury, with a daily market, canal trips and an abundance of shops and restaurants, there is something to suit all tastes and expectations. Whether you crave the high-stakes thrill of competitive racing, or simply wish to soak up the atmosphere, Newbury Racecourse offers a top-class sporting venue with some of the best horseracing in the country and raceday hospitality to match. A mile north of Newbury is the ruins of Donnington Castle, an impressive 14th Century building that played a pivotal role in the Civil War. If theatre and the arts is more your thing, the surrounding area offers a wealth of different venues, from the high adventure of the Newbury Corn Exchange to the magic of live theatre at the Watermill, a beautiful converted mill on the banks of the river Lambourn. For children of all ages there is a world of fun to be had at Beale Park, Bucklebury Farm Park and Krazy Klub Activity Centre. For those seeking a more relaxing leisure break, there are several local golf courses, including the Championship standard Donnington Valley, as well as an abundance of opportunities for cycling, coarse fishing, horse riding or simply taking a scenic stroll along the banks of the Kennet and Avon Canal.
