My husband, son and daughter (both in their early 20s) recently stayed three nights with Charlotte and Rupert Digby at their Rookwood House B&B. The property is in Newbury, England and we found them listed on the HIghclere Castle website as we were planning a visit to Highclere (where Downton Abbey is filmed as I am a big fan. )... More

Stayed two nights a birthday surprise from my husband who booked this accommodation finding the link through the Highclere Castle site. Arrived around 6.00pm and were met by the owner Charlotte, who seemed flustered and advised she had been putting away her 11! - 5 week old Dalmatian puppies (who wouldn’t be flustered?) Shown to the blue room, within the...

Like a previous reviewer, I stayed here when my usual Newbury options were full! A really comfortable stay, room was clean and the breakfast was excellent all in a nice setting with friendly hosts. I plan on returning!

We really enjoyed our stay. Lovely room, amazing garden and friendly owners and staff. Also it was really useful to have a kitchen with fridge available to use. Only small remark is that the owners could improve their egg poaching skills....

Stayed here on business in June 2014 for one night, due to the fact that my usual accommodation in the area was fully booked and also struggled to find anywhere else. So glad I found this place with room. Easy to get to from the A34. Was greeted by the owner and his heavily pregnant Dalmatian (would be great to... More

We've been looking for a smart little farmhouse that offered b&b and wedding reception facilities. We thought we had found such in the above. On trying to book a night's stay to test out the facilities my partner was met on the phone by a rude and abrupt lady who quite frankly didn't sound like she was interested in the... More

We were only staying here for a night in order to attend a nearby wedding reception. This was actually a real shame as the room is furnished to an exceptional standard and the hospitality shown by Rupert was first class. We stayed in the pink room which is in the annex and has a view of the gardens and surrounding... More

We were going to a birthday dinner at a The Vineyard, which is in walking distance.........along a totally unlit road with no pavement. May not have arrived alive had we not driven there and got friends to drop us back. A pleasant, short walk the next day to collect the car and a nice place to stay.

Stayed for a couple of nights for work here in autumn 2012 (drop-down menu only allows very recent stays, but it was Nov 2012) and was highly impressed by the service, cleanliness, well appointed, tastefully decorated rooms and the excellent breakfast. Friendly hosts and the facilities in the annexe (shared kitchen, lounge etc.) all added to a very good experience... More

Tucked behind the A34 is a stunning farmhouse with magnificent gardens and very comfortable accommidation. Charlotte and Rupert maintain a beautiful place, have extensive space for their guests ... I didn't get to try the swimming pool though!! My room was should with lots of hugely touches but the high point was this morning, after a great breakfast, when Charlie... More
