Stunning country homestead

  • 5 of 5

Highclere is the perfect destination for a luxe country escape.

Our family of 4 found the property to be beautifully furnished and very well equipped.

Host Lee was a delight to deal with, extremely professional and most hospitable.

The farm and surrounds are breathtakingly beautiful.

We highly recommend Highclere.

Thank you Lee.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

The property and houses are just lovely. We had such a relaxing time. A lot of effort has gone into the decorating and furnishing of Highclere and it really shows as you feel so comfortable from the moment you arrive. The gardens also are just amazing. Perfect to sit back with a drink and watch the sun set over the hills. We'll definitely be back for another visit.

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at Highclere and had such a wonderful time. The house is beautifully decorated and the owners have clearly put such a lot of time and love into the property. The bed linen is fabulous, as is the lovely sitting room, perfect for watching the sun go down. We would love to return one day again and enjoy this stunning property and the equally delightful area again.
