We love: Heckfield Place

An elegantly restored Georgian home with a progressive vision opens its doors in the delightful setting of rural Hampshire.

About Heckfield Place

Amid ancient woodland, gardens and meadows, you’ll find this beautiful Georgian family home lovingly restored. Heckfield Place opens its doors this September and redefines the idea of a modern luxury hotel. Designer Ben Thompson has honoured the house’s history with Persian carpets and antique furnishings, while the owners’ collection of paintings adorns the walls. Stroll around the grounds to see how this country haven is committed to sustainability. Each day the Home Farm provides fruit, vegetables, honey and fresh flowers for the restaurants and rooms.
