FOUR SEASONS HAMPSHIRE HOTEL REVIEW
A TRUE COUNTRYSIDE ADVENTURE ON THE DOORSTEP OF LONDON
Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire is located in one of England's most picturesque surroundings, providing a luxury English country estate hotel for Hampshire weekend breaks or holidays. It's amazing how you can find yourself among 500 acres of unspoilt countryside in less than an hour of leaving work on a Friday in Central London. The Four Seasons estate in Hampshire is certainly the outdoors and countryman's dream destination.
The hotel offers free mountain bikes for exploring, clay pigeon shooting, treetop assault course, lakeside fishing and a top class spa for relaxing in at the end of an activity filled day. There's also a hotel dog which you'll see from time-to-time... along with a few others brought by the guests of this dog-friendly luxury hotel.
The Hotel is situated on a Georgian manor house in Hampshire, with three adjoining wings. In addition, the Georgian-style luxury hotel guest accommodations have beautiful English country interiors and are equipped with spacious bathrooms and modern business and entertainment amenities. Our room was a good size with a huge marble bathroom boasting an impressive freestanding bath and the beauty products of choice are Asprey London. There's a good selection of teas and a Nespresso machine, walk in wardrobe, huge bed and two large windows with sweeping countryside views for as far as the eye can see. We particularly like their very own 10th Anniversary Golden Ale, whereby they teamed up with local, family-run brewery Andwell's to carefully craft its signature recipe. And what a recipe it is!
Seasons Restaurant on the grounds of the hotel offers a French-European menu executed with contemporary style and outstanding service. Abundant daylight cascades through French windows framing the glorious views of Dogmersfield Park. The restaurant has a good atmosphere because the hotel is highly family friendly. So, it doesn't feel two stuffy, more relaxing and casual yet the setting and service is top class. Our waiter was keen to give us great food recommendations (Beef main, Praline dessert) which did not disappoint.
The Highwire Adventure is no easy feat. It’s quite scary and certainly hard work – but you’ll love it if you’re a thrill seeker! Hidden among the woodlands on Dogmersfield Estate, it features both a high and low rope course: a series of 24 high and 17 low rope challenges for both adults and children that promises to get the adrenalin pumping and test any head for heights. Balance across bridges and traverse through the trees at heights of up to 12 metres (40 feet) above the ground. And if swinging through the canopies isn’t adventurous enough, add to the thrill with The Descent, a breath-taking 235 metre (770 foot) zip line, or try the ultimate free-fall experience with The Power Fan, a hair-raising parachute simulator. True adrenaline!
