Just outside the village of Dogmersfield, Hampshire, the Four Seasons is set amid 200 hectares (500 acres) of rolling hills and historic gardens. Jane Austen's House; Birdworld; Farnham Castle; and The Vyne, a 16th-century estate, are within a 25-minute drive. London is about an hour away.
The smoke-free Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire's centerpiece is a restored Georgian manor. An 18th-century stable block houses a luxury spa. A glass-enclosed indoor pool is connected to an outdoor vitality pool with massaging jets. Guests can also work out in the 24-hour fitness studio, go horseback-riding, play tennis, or stroll along the picturesque Basingstoke Canal. A French-European restaurant, a casual bistro, and a spa café are on site, and afternoon tea is served daily in The Library.
Spacious guestrooms and suites are furnished in a refined Georgian style. Large windows frame views of the courtyard or estate grounds and the hills beyond. Beds are layered with Four Seasons luxury linens and down duvets. TVs come with DVD/CD players. Marble bathrooms offer glass-enclosed showers, separate soaking tubs, thick terry bathrobes, and separate WC alcoves with telephones. Other amenities include minibars, in-room safes, and high-speed Internet access (surcharge). Turndown service is provided each evening.
