At the weekend, we travelled down to Hampshire for what transpired to be a very exciting meeting. More of this in a subsequent #Move blog. We decided to stay overnight and found the very beautiful White Hart in pretty-as-a-picture, South Harting – a very traditional English village.
For friends who often do ferry crossings across to France, we’d highly recommend this as a stop-over. A beautiful pub with excellent restaurant and very boutique style rooms. We had an ensuite double with breakfast for £109.00. Worth every penny.
And when we asked if our car was OK on the road outside, we were told…
Oh yes. We don’t have traffic wardens around here.
Rooms are very tastefully furnished and it is quite clear that nothing has been done on the cheap. Fixtures and fittings are solid and robust and the rooms marry the traditional with the contemporary. Egyptian cotton bedding and a thick mattress, guaranteeing a very comfortable night’s sleep, added to the experience. Very small touches – such as matching wooden hangars and complimentary fresh coffee, tea, chocolates and glass bottles of water – were much appreciated. Our room was spotless. As was the beautifully designed bathroom. Should be the norm, but sometimes corners are cut. Not at The White Hart.
The outside area of the pub/B&B is as beautiful as inside – again, attention to detail and less is more.
Although we didn’t have an evening meal in the pub, we did have breakfast which was in keeping with everything else we experienced. Excellent. A very recommended place to lay your head.
