Accommodation Description:

The Donnington Grove Estate is set in a delightful and secluded position on the outskirts of Newbury and is overlooked by the historic Donnington Castle. The present house where the hotel is located was built by James Pettit Andrews between 1763 and 1772 to designs by John Chute. This style is now known as Strawberry Hill Gothic after the house created for Horace Walpole in Twickenham.

The land purchased by Andrews at the time was not extensive and during his ownership Donnington Grove could more properly be described as a house with grounds rather than a country estate.The estate which comprises of 550 acres was a mixture of parkland farmland and woodland with the River Lambourn running through it. These variations in the landscape provided an ideal setting for a championship golf course. Dave Thomas one of Britain's foremost golf architects was assigned the task of creating a golf course that was in keeping with the listed landscape gardens and lake to the south of the house.

The construction of the course started in November 1991 and on the 12 June 1993 the Donnington Grove Country Club opened.If golf does not suit everyone there are also beautiful walks fishing and gardens to enjoy.
