While parts of the golf course date back to 1989, the 4-star Sandford Springs Hotel was only completed in 2013. Today, the three 9-hole golf courses remain one of its key selling points, but it's also popular for its Hampshire countryside views and restaurants.
Basingstoke and Newbury are both within a 15-minute drive, and Winchester is 40 minutes by car. In the area, visit Odiham Castle, Basing House and The Vyne, which are all within a 25-minute drive of the property. Ascot Racecourse is 45 minutes away by car and Wellington Country Park is 35 minutes.
The three golf courses on site are of varying difficulty and appeal -- The Woods has impressive views but is particularly hilly and a buggy is recommended. There's also a golf academy and a golf shop with fitting services. Guests get a discount on green fees.
The Kingsclere Restaurant overlooks the golf courses and is a 2-minute walk from the main hotel. Afternoon tea is served here from 2-4pm (advance booking is recommended). Within the hotel itself, the Dining Room serves an extensive breakfast with a selection of fruit, yoghurt, granola, smoked salmon, kippers, a choice of eggs and more. Sunday lunch is a regular feature, with a choice of three roast dinners.
The bedrooms are on the spacious side and have free Wi-Fi and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Upgrade to a Superior Room for more space and a separate bath and shower. Interconnecting family rooms are available.
