Woodspeen community

Every day we feel lucky to be where we are. Surrounded by glorious countryside, watching the seasons unfold, at the heart of a community. Walking from The Woodspeen is wonderful, up to Donnington Castle or down to the river Lambourn.  Here are some of our favourite routes.

Around The Woodspeen

The Woodspeen is surrounded by some of Berkshire’s most picturesque countryside. It’s a landscape well worth exploring, with the Watermill Theatre, Highclere Castle (where they filmed Downton Abbey) and Donnington Castle just a short drive away. If you’d like to stay a little longer, here are a few of our favourite local hotels and guesthouses.

Our vegetable and herb plots supply our chefs with over forty different varieties of organic fruit and vegetables, many herbs and edible flowers.

Charity work

We always wanted The Woodspeen to be at the heart of the local community, and we’re keen to do what we can to support worthy causes. Over the years we’ve visited schools, hosted lunches and dinners in our restaurant, and run classes in our cookery school. If you know of a charity that could use our help, please let us know. We’ve already chosen our charities for 2019, but we might be able to help in 2020.
