The Carpenters Arms is perfectly situated in the beautiful Berkshire countryside, and overlooks Watership Down - the inspiration for the famous story and film.
Another neighbour you may well be familiar with is Highclere Castle, the historic setting for the award winning Downton Abbey.
And last, but certainly not least, you are welcome to walk in the footsteps of another celebrated local, the world famous English artist, Sir Stanley Spencer. He lived a stone’s throw from The Carpenters Arms and painted local Burghclere scenes as well as his unique and moving murals at the Sandham Memorial Chapel in Burghclere.
