The Owner Says

Lapwing is a luxuriously appointed Shepherd's Hut best suited for couples looking for an extra level of comfort during their glamping experience. The hut has a spacious firepit/BBQ area and overlooks our fields, with woodland to the back. The hut has an extremely comfortable king-size bed with views. The kitchenette has an electric hob, microwave/grill oven and fridge. The bathroom is also en-suite with a shower, so no tramping to the loo block in the dark! With double doors opening onto to a beautiful view, your focus will be outside, however indoors there is an electric stove, underfloor heating and comfortable seating/dining area. All linen and towels are provided. There is access to a shared laundry facility. No WiFi although roaming signal is very good.

Features & Facilities

We are family owned and run. We love meeting and chatting to guests that come to stay with us, whilst also allowing you complete space and privacy. We will always make an effort to make personal recommendations and go the extra-mile to ensure that you have a comfortable and memorable stay. Having started out 7 years ago with just The Coach House, we are proud that guests return year after year, and many we now count as friends. We provide a complimentary welcome hamper to all guests at check-in (milk, homemade sourdough, farm eggs etc) and a local information pack with suggested itineraries, recommendations and activities. We do run events and workshops here and there, so it's worth looking at our website or instagram if you'd like to join in!

Activities

The history of the area is hard to beat. Stonehenge is just around the corner, and a walk around our grounds alone will take you past 5000 year-old earthworks and burial mounds. Just last year a hoard of bronze-age axe-heads was found in one of our fields. In the wider area there are some world-class hikes to be discovered, taking in the famous white-horses of the Ridgeway, Avebury and Wansdyke to the north, or the New-Forest with it's wild ponies to the south. Finally, our area has some award-winning eateries and vine yards to be explored, particularly in Winchester and the villages surrounding the river Test (also great for a spot of wild-swimming!).

Food & Drink

The Malet Arms is a beautiful 40 minute walk away through the Estate (or 5 minute drive). It's a traditional Pub with a roaring fire, kitchen garden and locally sourced menu, and we always recommend it. It is also dog and family friendly. Slightly further afield there are numerous award-winning eateries, too many to mention, but foodies will enjoy a visit to the Red Lion in East Chisenbury or The Greyhound on the Test. Stockbridge is also a great option for delis, coffee and light lunches.

Getting There

From the A303 about eight miles east of Stonehenge, head towards Cholderton on the A338. After a couple of miles, at the first roundabout, take the first exit on to Grateley Road and then continue onto Cholderton Road. From here, follow signs to turn left into Kingsettle Stud and the Cholderton Estate.

There’s a train station at Grateley (seven miles from Kingsettle Stud), which is ideal for anyone bringing a bike. Otherwise, the best station to use is Andover (14 miles away), since it has a taxi rank outside.
