Description

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.

Amazing food, lovely venue

Had a wonderful time at Esseborne Manor. The staff were very professional and the food was outstanding. The grounds were lovely. Accommodation was clean and comfortable. Even though they were fully booked for Sunday lunch, the reception staff kindly brought us some yummy soup and bread to our room.

Lovely and relaxing

A superb time away in a lovely quiet setting giving time to kick back and relax. Nice rooms with home made biscuits. Tea, scones and a glass of fizz in the garden was lovely and what can I say about the taster menu - amazing! Every course was a delight in itself.

Repeat visit

This was the second time we have taken this break and this time we were joined by our daughter and son in law. That probably speaks volumes in itself. I would highly recommend an Esseborne manor break with the tasting menu. The food was fabulous and the hotel comfortable and welcoming. Many thanks to all those who made it such an enjoyable stay again.

Super place in beautiful countryside

We had a lovely stay here - the team were all very friendly and helpful, the room was very spacious with a great jacuzzi bath feature and the food was fantastic. It's very relaxed, and we enjoyed a game of croquet in the sunshine on the lawn outside. A great place to visit, and there's also some super local attractions such as Highclere Castle and the Bombay Sapphire Distillery so you can really make a weekend of it.

Excellent stay

I bought this as a birthday gift for my husbands 50th birthday. The whole stay was such a treat. The gourmet part of the voucher was excellent. Tea & scones with prosecco on arrival, canapes and an aperitif before dinner and the seven course taster menu was such perfect quality. Everything beautiful plated and tasted devine. Breakfast next day was good too. I would definitely recommend this escape to anyone and we both agreed we would be more than happy to book the same treat again - it was that good!

Tasting menu

This was a gift for my husband. Afternoon tea was nice, but the scones were tiny so more would have been great. Lovely refurbished dining room. The tasting menu is a great idea and the food was delicious - compliments to the chef. However each course (apart from pudding) was served too quickly, which unfortunately made it feel like a conveyer belt, rather than the courses being spaced. The bedroom was lovely, spacious and clean. We had a four poster bed, however the mattress was rock hard and the pillows were so thin there was little padding left in them. We were given the Exeter Room which as we found out was above the kitchen and we had hardly any sleep due to kitchen noise both very late at night and very early morning. Pleasant hotel for a one night stop over.

Amazing food!

Esseborne manor is a nice place for an overnight stay. Room needs refurbishing and so does the communal parts of the house, but the food in the restaurant is exceptional!
