Escape Kit

  • Overnight Friday Stay for Two People in a Double Room with Afternoon Tea and Two-Course Dinner
  • Or, Overnight Sunday Stay for Two People in a Double Room with Two-Course Lunch and Two-Course Dinner
  • Full English Breakfast

Situated next to one of the country's most famous stately homes—Highclere Castle, better known as Downton Abbey—Berkshire's The Carnarvon Arms is a Grade-II listed former coach house given a fresh makeover and an exciting new menu courtesy of Marco Pierre White.

Overnight stays are available for two people, with the interior decked out with eccentric artworks and ephemera and 23 en suite rooms outfitted in a contemporary and stylish manner.

  • Friday Night with Full English Breakfast, Afternoon Tea with Glass of Bubbly Each, and Two-Course Dinner—£125 (up to a £216.80 value)
  • Sunday Night with Full English Breakfast, Two-Course Lunch, and Two-Course Dinner—£115 (up to a £229.90 value)

With menus created by Marco and dishes prepared using local ingredients where possible, you're guaranteed some fine fare whichever option you choose; sample refined dishes such as a kedgeree of smoked haddock à l`Indienne, or venison pierre koffmann with chou à la crème and sauce of chocolate amer. If staying on a Sunday, you'll sample a hearty Sunday lunch, and awake to a traditional full English breakfast, or one of the other hearty selections.

Much of the local countryside is part of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the perfect place for an invigorating ramble—you might even stumble across some Bronze Age burial mounds. Meanwhile, nearby Newbury boasts a historic racecourse, should you fancy a day out enjoying the sport of kings.


  • This Escape is for two people.
