ABOUT

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!

ACCOMMODATION

We have various self-catered accommodation options. All accommodation is dog-friendly, with private wood-fired hot-tubs, self-check-in and a minimum 2-night stay.

 

OUR SERVICES

Self-Catering

 All units have a fully equipped kitchen with a small fridge, microwave and electric hob. We shall stock your kitchen with a 'welcome hamper' of fresh milk, eggs, butter, preserves and a homemade Sourdough loaf. 

Other essential supplies are available to purchase from the Cholderton Farm Shop located in our farmyard, a short 10 minute walk away.

Each unit has a fire-pit with grill, and a log fired pizza oven is also available; ask for details.

Garden

Our huts and cottage each have their own private garden with fresh herbs, comfortable seating, wood-fired hot tub and fire pit. The units are in a secluded location looking 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.

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; details on our instagram page @the_cholderton_estate.

WiFi

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!

Housekeeping

All linens and towels are supplied. Laundry and a 'freshen-up' service are also available.

Log-fired Hot Tubs

Each of our huts and cottage has a private wood-fired hot tub. Instructions for how to use your tub can be found here.

 

Kingsettle Stud - Log fired Hot tubs and Pizza Oven

Source of funding: European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development

This project, funded by the Loddon and Test LEADER Programme, supported the purchase of three log fired hot tubs and an outdoor pizza oven to enhance the appeal of the ‘glamping’ facilities at Kingsettle Stud.

WEDDINGS

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.
