Frome House The South East

Join the illustrious guest list at this historic Hampshire country estate

Just over one hour from London, Frome House is an English country estate of significant historical merit and unsurpassed hospitality. This exquisite family estate, never bought or sold in its 600-year history, has hosted Elizabeth 1 and Lord Byron, among others. As you drive up the tree-lined avenue into the beautiful 3,000-acre grounds, the outside world falls away. Exclusively yours, for a special celebration, a corporate event or a holiday with your friends or family, Frome House has everything you could wish for. Eight reception rooms, including a billiards room and a cinema room, offer space to explore and to gather. A commercial kitchen as well as a spacious kitchen for socialising, makes entertaining easy. The grand dining room is perfect for formal or relaxed dinners, fully prepared by the chef with seasonal ingredients from the kitchen garden. 11 stunning bedrooms and nine luxurious bathrooms offer night-time sanctuary, while day times can be spent in the outdoor pool (May to September), playing croquet or tennis, or wandering through the beautiful, landscaped gardens. Attentive hospitality, from fires being lit to beds turned down, leaves you to enjoy time together in the beautiful surroundings.
