The Dew Pond, Old Burghclere | West Berkshire Villages
The Dew Pond is located in the hamlet of Old Burghclere, just off the A34 between Newbury & Winchester. The Dew Pond was originally a pair of 16th century cottages and still retains the original oak beams with a log burning fire and fine views to Watership Down, Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey!) and Pond from which they take our name.

Set in the rural hamlet of Old Burghclere and surrounded by scenic countryside, The Dew Pond offers a relaxing and intimate atmosphere. Once a pair of 16th century cottages, the building retains its oak beams and fireplace from the original structure, bringing a little piece of rustic charm to the interior. From the oak flooring to the crisp linen, the fine art to the scenery, we take care to create a comfortable ambience with an emphasis on high quality. Our friendly front of house team provides highly professional yet informal, unobtrusive service to make your evening an enjoyable one.
