Beautiful rural home, surrounded by Watership Down landscape with swimming pool, tennis court and large luxury games room.

Sleeps: 13-15 Bedrooms: 7


This stunning, beautifully presented family home sleeps 13-15 guests comfortably and is located in one of the most wonderful areas of outstanding natural beauty in England. This particular part of Berkshire is also known for providing inspiration for the works of the famous Watership Down author, Richard Adams. The house consists of five double bedrooms (two of these bedrooms can be twins), one twin and one single (an additional bed can be added to one of the double rooms to accommodate 14). Four bathrooms (2 en-suite) plus the pool house with shower.

The property is within easy reach of London, the Cotswolds and the South and West of England and is ideal for large group accommodation, specifically for family weddings for the nearby Highclere Castle.

New Isle House is the perfect getaway retreat, with lots of exciting facilities including a large, modern games room above the garage with table tennis, pool table, games console and comfortable sofas, as well as an outside heated swimming pool (open May to September) and a floodlit tennis court. There is also a croquet lawn, BBQ area and a lovely terrace, perfect for evening dining. Other nearby attractions include The Wayfarers Walk, Winchester, Newbury (Races) and The Cotswolds.

Local eateries include the Wellington Arms pub in Baughurst and Bel at The Dragon in Kingsclere. For those wanting to partake in a little sport, there is a local golf course nearby at Sandford Springs.


The nearest town is Newbury. The property is 20 minutes from Winchester, 40 minutes by train to London, 1 hour 15 mins by car and 2 miles from Sandford Springs Golf Course.

Loved the games room, tennis court and swimming pool. Beautiful rural setting too. Would definitely recommend.
