Esseborne, a Victorian country house sitting high on the hill above the lovely Bourne Valley, amidst the splendour of the North Wessex Downs, was for 80 years a private country retreat. Once referred to as being 'invitingly snug', the house still retains the feel of a private home with luxuriously decorated rooms, an abundance of fresh flowers and fruit in the comfortable lounges, bedrooms where you are pampered with fine linen, fluffy towels & robes, local spring water & home made biscuits, and warm & caring staff, all the comforts of home. The Bourne Valley is in an area designated one of outstanding natural beauty with its river meandering through rich farmland, sheep filled meadows & thatched villages with ancient churches & character pubs. Close by the historic cities of Winchester & Salisbury, mystical Stonehenge and Highclere Castle are well worth a visit. Seated in landscaped gardens, surrounded by rolling countryside, only 7 miles from Andover & Newbury.Shooting, golf, horseriding and fishing nearby.
