The Apple Rooms at Houghton Lodge Gardens
*Bookings accepted from November 2017*
We are delighted to be able to offer six self-catering rooms to our portfolio of accommodation.
In one of England’s most beautiful and peaceful settings, Houghton Lodge Gardens, Stockbridge in Hampshire will launch a bespoke collection of six boutique bedrooms in spring 2018. What were once calf sheds of the 17th century private historic family home, will now become accommodation for those seeking an idyllic, luxury bolthole bordering ‘The most romantic river in England’
Each of the elegant bedrooms will have a backdrop of a muted tones colour palette and individually styled, with classic and contemporary sophistication. The rooms are to be named after heritage apple varieties from the garden’s ancient orchard. The bedrooms will be for two people but a couple of the larger rooms can accommodate a child’s bed. There is an interconnecting door between two of the rooms to enable a family suite.
Houghton Lodge is the finest and earliest surviving example of a Cottage Orné – a genre of ‘picturesque’ Gothic architecture that flourished for about 25 years from 1790. Arguably one of the most beautiful privately owned historic houses in Hampshire; It’s 14 acres of gardens are open to the public April – September. Having featured in many of the UK’s glossy magazines, visitors can explore the walled kitchen garden, endless displays of flower borders, topiary gardens featuring sculptured peacocks, a mist snorting dragon, woodland grotto, water meadows and smile at the resident alpacas Tom, Dick, Harry and Herbert.
All guests of the Apple Rooms will have complimentary entry to Houghton Lodge Gardens during the open season. The adjacent tearooms run by Honesty at Houghton Lodge Gardens, sell freshly baked artisan bread and other delicious produce. Arrival Snack Boxes and Breakfast Boxes can be pre-ordered which include a range of local produce allowing guests to enjoy a taste of Hampshire.
