It also contains a rather enviable collection of Modern British and Contemporary art.

This September, Jenna Burlingham Gallery in Kingsclere is offering guided tours of the artworks displayed in the 18th century house in Hook. They run on the evenings of September 14-15 as part of the hotel’s ‘Assembly’ events programme.

Local attraction

Jenna Burlingham told ATG: “Heckfield Place, which is local to us, has a wonderful mixed collection. The collection has been assembled over many years and includes artists familiar to your readers, from Mary Fedden to Margaret Mellis to Henri Hayden to Peter Joyce.”

Burlingham and the gallery’s Nathan Barker have run tours of the art collection since the hotel opened in 2019 and plan to offer more in the future.

Tickets cost £30 for adults and £28 for senior citizens and include a glass of Heckfield Cuvee or House nonalcoholic beverage.
