Charlton Down

Our Charlton Down base offers access to the many trails and byways of the North Wessex Downs and surrounding area. This includes the start of the Test Way at Coombe Gibbet which is also on the route of the Ridgeway. The area is epitomised by quiet country lanes criss crossed with byways that take you to the many picturesque villages dotted along the valleys. For the more adventurous there are challenging routes that take you to the highest points in Hampshire and Berkshire with magnificent views from the chalk escarpments.

Local attractions include:

  • Hungerford a historic Berkshire market town with a canal and train line running through it.
  • Coombe Gibbet set high on the chalk hills overlooking the valleys below
  • Kennet and Avon canal which links Bristol to Reading
  • Highclere Castle which is the set of Downton Abbey and is open for tours
