Average time to visit

It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but the UK does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.

Description

Set amongst 4,000 acres of rolling Hampshire countryside, Farleigh Wallop is the 15th century ancestral home of the Earls of Portsmouth and a unique venue available for private hire just an hour from central London.

Nestled amongst the ancient woodland, expertly manicured gardens and wildflower meadows of a 4,000-acre private estate, Farleigh Wallop is a quintessential country retreat available on an exclusive use basis, just 50 miles from the bustling streets of London. Dating back hundreds of years, the main house is a refined Georgian mansion that has long been the ancestral seat of Lord Portsmouth and Lord Lymington. Painstakingly restored, this eleven-bedroom country home is now an elegant and luxurious retreat, perfect for families or groups seeking an English idyll and a taste of British history.
 
Each of the eleven guest bedrooms has been designed to reflect the history and character of the house, with elegant soft furnishings and a quintessentially English country style contrasting with the most modern, luxury amenities. Nine opulent bathrooms are spread throughout the house, offering views of the stunning grounds. At the heart of the house are the large family kitchen and elegant dining room, where meals are prepared and served by the team of staff that are part of the Farleigh Wallop experience. Freshly prepared cuisine based on personal preferences and local, seasonal produce is served alongside the finest wines, by butler-standard staff for a truly refined experience.
 
The stunning grounds of Farleigh Wallop are a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, with all manner of countryside pursuits on offer.  Relax by the heated swimming pool or partake in a game of tennis on the immaculately tended tennis court, or simply explore the extensive gardens with their lake and ancient woodland. For a truly British experience, play a game of croquet on the lawn or try your hand at clay pigeon shooting or pheasant shooting, both available upon request.
