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 and robes, local spring water and home made biscuits, and warm and 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 and thatched villages with ancient churches and character pubs. Close by the historic cities of Winchester and Salisbury, mystical Stonehenge and Highclere Castle are well worth a visit.Seated in landscaped gardens, surrounded by rolling countryside, only 7 miles from Andover and Newbury.Shooting, golf, horseriding and fishing nearby.
