Your autumnal escape awaits

Ruthie and her team would like to welcome you to The Carnarvon Arms, a former coaching inn which served travellers to-and-from Highclere Castle in the quaint hamlet of Whitway.  A country pub with rooms, that envelops you in a traditional English setting, with roaring fires, wooden floors and traditional beams along with a garden for cosy, autumnal evenings. Serving delicious seasonal dishes all day using only the best of British ingredients and good old-fashioned hospitality. The Carnarvon Arms is the ideal place to relax, recharge and explore the beautiful surrounding area.

The Carnarvon Arms makes a great base for those wishing to indulge in country pursuits.  Located just minutes from the A34, M4, A303 and not very far from Newbury Train Station.

You won’t have trouble finding things to do nearby, with the famous Downton Abbey Highclere Castle on our doorstep. As well as the Bombay Sapphire distillery, Newbury Racecourse, living rainforest, Newbury Showground and the famous Avon & Kennet canal  just minutes away.
