Overview

Enjoy a luxury getaway including a seven course taster dinner for two with this Gourmet Escape to Esseborne Manor.

Esseborne Manor is a family run Victorian country house hotel located close to Highclere Castle, home of the popular television series Downton Abbey. Set amidst the splendour of the North Wessex Down, close to the beautiful Bourne Valley, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, this is the perfect getaway location for those looking to relax and unwind.

The house, which for over 100 years has been a country retreat, still retains the feel of a private home where the Hamilton family provide a warm and caring welcome with comfortable lounges, and bedrooms where you are pampered with fluffy towels, local filtered well water and home-made scrummy biscuits. All bedrooms overlook the lush green gardens and are decorated individually to provide a luxury environment with a unique feel and atmosphere.

Dining at Esseborne is a real treat with pre-dinner drinks and canapés in the bar or on the patio. The award winning Courtyard Restaurant overlooks the gardens and the sprawling farmland beyond. All dishes are freshly prepared by Head Chef Dennis and his team with herbs from their own herb garden and extensive use of local Hampshire and Berkshire produce.

This break is a one night stay for two people to enjoy and includes a seven course taster dinner and breakfast, plus tea, scones and a glass of Prosecco on arrival. Please note, your tea and scones will be served between 3pm - 5:30pm.

We had a fantastic time. The room was clean and bed very comfortable. The scone tea on our arrival was very good and the evening 7 course tasting was superb. Just the right amount of food and not to feel full. Each course was delicious the flavours exceptional. It was good to try different food that you wouldn’t normally try. Opens you up to experience different tastes. The wine was also an experience in its self trying different countries and regions which we wouldn’t normally have done. A lovely night away

I was given the gourmet stay as a birthday present from family members and I visited in late November.The Manor is a very old building so more oldie worldie than the more modern mirrors and chrome hotels. Checking in went smoothly and I was given the Newbury room which was large and comfortable.The bathroom seemed out of place as it was big and ultra modern with a huge air bubble type bath and equally huge shower. The water was pipping hot at all times. The only downside to the room was the lighting as all lights were either ecofriendly or very low wattage, meaning I had to sit right under one to read. Tea and scones, with a glass of proseco, were served in the bar area and very tasty. My dinner was the 7 course taster menu and it was EXCELLENT!! By the time I finished the last course I was feeling very full. Breakfast had a range of choices but I was still feeling full so had a small meal. I would recommend Esseborne Manor to anyone considering a stay.

A fantastic choice. The food was out of this world. Service was extremely professional and the hotel was wonderful. A real luxury weekend and couldn’t fault a thing. We weren’t sure what to expect, but we are so glad we went. Wonderful! We will be going back again in the better weather.

What a lovely place Esseborne Manor is. we enjoyed a nice relaxing well earned break here and will hope to be returning again soon. On arrival we checked in took our case up to the room and had afternoon tea in the sunshine on the patio area with a complimentary glass of prosecco. we spent the rest of the afternoon on the patio in the sun ordered a few more drinks and enjoyed the tranquility of the place. The 7 course taster menu that we had in the evening was really good and was washed down with a lovely bottle of red. The room was nice, clean and comfortable and the staff really look after you and made sure everything was as expected you couldn't ask for more.
