Local Activities

For The Walkers…

In an area of outstanding natural beauty,  the walks and wildlife are superb. There are many circular walks on the doorstep, and access to the Lambourn Valley Way is a 2 minute walk away.

Hungerford is a 10 minute drive, where you can find the canal to either walk by or even take the boat.

For the Foodies…

We are spoilt for choice. On our doorstep, just a 2 minute walk we have The Great Shefford.  They serve wonderful food. Head chef Sam Carey and the rest of the team at the pub always make you feel very welcome. The Plough at Eastbury, The Woodspeen Restaurant, and The  Pheasant, – to name just a few… the list is endless! But before you go out and about, you can enjoy 2 Ivy House’s continental breakfast, which is inclusive of the room rate.

For the Racegoers… 

Newbury racecourse is just 7 miles away and hosts some fantastic meetings, and Lambourn (The Valley of the Racehorse) is a stone’s throw away.

For the Adventurous…

For theatre aficionados, we are delighted to recommend The Watermill Theatre, which offers everything from Shakespeare and classic plays to new writing.

If you’re into sport, we are situated near a selection of golf courses, including Donnington Grove Championship golf course.

If you fancy learning some culinary skills, then don’t miss the Woodspeen cookery school kitchen.

And if all this is not enough, you can also find a direct train line into London from Hungerford.
