Easily accessible from the M4 and A34, located in a lush Berkshire valley flanked by flint and chalky hillsides, Hampstead Norreys was originally established as a farming village many centuries before it was recorded in Domesday Book of 1086. Almost certainly on the site of a Saxon estate headquarters, the Manor House and self-catering holiday cottages adjoin the charming Norman church. The house and holiday cottages have views across the village to the farm’s arable fields.
Dating back to the 17th century, the Manor House has been handed down through both paternal and maternal forbears, the Lowsleys and the Betts. The current generation of the Betts family work together in running the farm and the self-catering cottages. You will be looked after by Jessica Betts when you come to stay.
The luxuriously appointed holiday cottages were renovated by the Betts family. Taking an old dairy and stable block, no longer suitable for modern agriculture, they have preserved the assets and history for our village. For a taste of English heritage, Manor Farm Courtyard Cottages are the place to stay in Berkshire.
We are members of the Green Business Tourism Scheme which encourages actions that will really make a difference to our carbon footprint. The Courtyard Cottages are heated by a biomass boiler, which serves the whole Courtyard. We monitor our use of electricity and water, recycle where possible and encourage our visitors to do the same.
