About Dashwood House

Introduction

"Dashwood House will have you feeling like the lead in a Jane Austen book or film or at the very least an extra. Set in the heart of the beautiful county the writer called home it has a corner for everyone in the group. Children dogs and the more energetic adults can puff themselves out playing five aside football or hurtling around in the woods at the bottom of the garden whilst the more sedate can sip tea from the patio or find quiet repose in the supremely comfortable interiors. During chillier seasons pop some logs on the two open fires and snuggle next to the wood burners a cocoa beside you and a book in hand. Or any time of year sink into the bubbling wood barrel tub with your favourite cocktail whilst looking out for deer and other wildlife in the garden.\nThis Grade II listed house has the charm of the ages mixed with contemporary fixtures and stunning interior flourishes. Its interior designer owner has considered every touch to give the house an ultimately relaxing home from home feeling. If you feel like you’ve landed in a stylish photo shoot it’s because the house is popular as an interiors location venue and been the cover star of many glossy magazines along with campaigns including Farrow Ball and The White Company.\nLooking to while away an hour with a book or two? Keen to sink into a plush sofa and giggle with friends? Prefer to play board games stream your Netflix or watch Sky Sports? Or confident enough for a recital on the baby grand piano? You can organise all of these at once. The large reception hall with piano is an entertainment space par excellence just organise someone to come round with canapés the three receptions rooms allow for all manner of relaxation and revelry and the snug room with a library of books and DVDs and 21st Century screen time for those tired out from all the rest\nAs the evenings draw to a close and the yawns begin retire to your magnificent bedroom with stately country decor and luxurious bed. If you’re in one of rooms with a super king then you’ll find a superbly outfitted en-suite. If you’re in the master bedroom your en-suite will have a romantic roll-top bath. The bedrooms with twins don’t miss out though as they share a large bathroom with a luxuriously huge bath.\nThe kitchen would make any chef envious it’s a treat to look at let alone cook in. With the Aga warming your toes be careful not to trip over your dozing dog if you’ve brought any they won’t want to be anywhere else. Cook your feast in style and options abound for setting the table. Choose from three dining options all seating 12 dress up to the nines for a candle lit dinner in the beautiful peacock blue dining room relax in the more informal breakfast room or dine al fresco and enjoy views of the gorgeous grounds from the deck. Looking to have too much fun elsewhere? Then why not book one of our chefs to help you...\nDining out and exploring is easy too. The ancient city of Winchester is only just down the road replete with history and restaurants galore. Or acres of national park in the New Forest are a short car journey away with pubs pigs heather and ponies. And if the medieval village of Bishops Waltham doesn’t charm your socks off then we’ll assume you’ve travelled from Hobbiton.\nWith all this at Dashwood House you’ll be finding excuses to book a return trip before you’ve even left."

    What makes this area so special

    The local village
    We really recommend you visit Bishop’s Waltham. It’s a quintessentially English market town with an excellent range of shops and places to eat and drink. From the impressive ruins of the Bishop of Winchester’s Palace visited by royals, from Richard the Lionheart to Elizabeth l, to the remarkably well preserved medieval high street, the town is steeped in history.
    There are two Co-ops and a really good Budgens along with a fantastic butcher, fishmonger and greengrocer in Bishop’s Waltham. However, if you need to do a larger shop, there’s a massive Sainsbury’s and M&S just a couple of miles away at Hedge End. Most of the larger supermarkets deliver to the house so you can order online in advance of your stay.
    We love The Crown which is a great local pub, all low beams and cosy nooks, with a really good menu. Josie’s is fantastic for posh sandwiches with an all day breakfast with the best Eggs Benedict ever, but always busy so you may need to wait for a table.
    Other local recommendations:
    Friends Refined Indian Cuisine (this is absolutely fantastic curry - take away available).
    The Cricketers Inn. This is our local village pub and very popular with our guests who have found them very happy to accommodate large groups. It’s signposted from the Botley Rd and around a 10 minute walk.
    Regginas. Really good Italian food and Botley’s just a short drive.
    The local area
    For those old enough to remember Howard’s Way - high drama from the 80‘s (!!), it was largely filmed in Hamble and these two pubs were featured but are actually both great pubs in their own right in lovely spots with good menus, and The Jolly Sailor made it into the Telegraph’s best pubs in Britain book quite rightly.
    The Hamble river is pretty spectacular and has a huge marina. The harbour wall’s a popular spot for crabbing and there’s a little pink ferry boat which can take you (and your dog) to Warsash on the other side of the river which is ideal for a gentle walk with lovely views.
    The Bugle.
    The Jolly Sailor.
    The Beach Hut Cafe.
    An unspoiled cathedral city on the edge of the South Downs, Winchester is England’s ancient capital and former seat of King Alfred the Great. Winchester is most well known for its stunning 11th century cathedral and the Great Hall, which for over 700 hundred years has housed the mysterious Round Table. Winchester has a great range of shops and restaurants and we’d highly recommend it for a day or evening out. We like The Vine, opposite the cathedral, and the Chesil Rectory, and they’re both in beautiful historic buildings. It’s really easy to get the train form Botley if you’d prefer not to drive. Just outside the city to the south, there’s the Science Centre which has the most fantastic planetarium and this is a great choice for rainy days whatever age your children (and you!) are. We’ve visited Jane Austin’s house in Chawton a few times; it’s a sweet museum and they’ve preserved her house as it would have been and you can really get a sense of her life. Portsmouth is also a great place to visit. We’ve done the Spinnaker Tower and the Royal Artillery Museum but there’s so much more to do there. The Mary Rose has recently reopened after a huge restoration project too. Gunwharf Quay is a good retail outlet mall too so good for lunch and shops if you’re doing the museums and ships. Of course the New Forest is wonderful and the car museum in Beaulieu is a must for any motor enthusiast. Closer still, Wickham is a very pretty village with the second oldest square in England. Chesapeake Mill is a fabulous place to visit and a bit of a treasure trove for antiques and collectables.
    Beach wise, we love Hayling Island. The dog friendly beach is right at the end of Sea Front and offers a lovely wide sandy beach with really clean clear water. You’ll find lots of people swimming but there&rs
