A traditional country pub from the outside, step inside and Bel and The Dragon exudes style and luxury and doesn't losing any of its classic rustic charm. Located in the picturesque Hampshire village of Kingsclere, this is the perfect rural English escape.
There are nine rooms to choose from, all of which feature an extra-large bed, en-suite bathroom, and a flat screen TV. Each room adheres to the overall classic and cosy style, with many boasting original features such as wooden beams, as well as offering views down the winding streets of the village.
Breakfast is included with each night’s stay and is served in the on-site restaurant in the heart of Bel and The Dragon. At other times of the day the restaurant dishes up amazing food from their a la carte menu, while there is also a bar where a pre or post dinner drink can be enjoyed. Outside the attractive garden and terrace offers those staying further places to relax and unwind when the weather is fine.
Steeped in history, Kingsclere itself dates back to medieval times and is filled with listed buildings. There are two further pubs and an Italian restaurant, along with an array of independent shops. Located on the Hampshire and Berkshire border, beautiful countryside surrounds the inn and offers plenty of opportunities to get out and about on foot or by bike.
For those who like history both Highclere and Donnington Castles are nearby, as is the Bombay Sapphire gin distillery and the hustle and bustle of Newbury Racecourse and its many meets every year. Anyone who enjoys golf has the choice of two courses both within eight miles of the doorstep of the Bel and The Dragon.
While Kingsclere promotes the quiet life, the city of Reading is less than 19 miles away. As well as its plethora of shops, bars, and eateries, its museum is also home to the Bayeux Tapestry and many other interesting exhibits. The Thames path is well worth exploring while stopping in the many pubs along the way, while a boat trip up the Kennet and Avon Canal is a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
