Holiday Cottages ✢ Weddings
Kingsettle Stud is part of the Cholderton Estate; a 2500 acre privately owned organic farm in the Hampshire countryside, just 15 minutes from the UNESCO world-heritage site of Stonehenge and part of the Test-Valley (world-famous for it's chalk-stream fishing). Founded in 1890, staying on the Estate is like stepping back in time; our Victorian buildings and walled garden have been lovingly preserved, and with numerous activities and walks through our extensive grounds (or to the local pub!), we are a destination in our own right. The farm is also within easy reach of London, and has excellent transport links, making us an ideal stop-off for business travellers and families en-route to Cornwall. As well as self-catered accommodation, we hold a number of weddings and 'Pop-Up' events annually. Subscribe to our mailing list and follow us on instagram @kingsettle_stud to stay updated!

We shall stock your kitchen with fresh milk, eggs, butter, preserves and a homemade Sourdough loaf so that you've got everything you need for a complimentary welcome breakfast.
A manual with WiFi codes and local info is provided in the Coach House. Lapwing and Bustard Huts are techno free zones so that you can get back to nature... although the roaming signal is very good!
Each unit has it's own private garden with fresh herbs, comfortable seating and barbeque/fire pit. The units are private and secluded, and all look-over a wild-flower meadow. Frequent visitors include deer, hare, foxes, owls, red kites and numerous other bird species. The estate has been organic and sustainably farmed for decades and is a Mecca for wildlife.
All linens and towels are supplied. Laundry and a 'freshen-up' service are also available.
Activities on the Estate
We have two bikes available to hire for the day (at your own risk!), and good pubs and a farmshop within walking distance. All units are dog friendly. The extensive grounds (including maze!) are there for you to explore at your leisure and are littered with bronze-age burial mounds and earthworks. In the last decade, two significant hoards have been found (now displayed in Salisbury Museum)! We also have various pop-up style events and workshops running from time-to-time.
All units have a fully equipped kitchen. Other essential supplies are available to purchase from the Cholderton Farm Shop located in our farmyard, a short 10 minute walk away.
Kingsettle Stud offers a totally unique party space to accommodate upto 150 guests, with the grounds providing myriad options for humanist ceremonies. We hold a small number of weddings annually meaning that all of our couples enjoy exclusive use of the Estate, and we also have an open supplier policy so that you can create your day, your way. From the point of booking our couples become part of the family, and we're there with you every step of the way. We have a dry-hire option where we pretty much leave you to it; but can also offer add-ons to take the stress out (request our price-list for details). Our approach is very relaxed and friendly, get in-touch to arrange a tour, or download our brochure here.
