Settle down into countryside chic
Sir William Heathcote bought the Manor and Park of Hursley from Elizabeth and Anne Cromwell, Oliver’s granddaughters. It was Sir William who pulled down the old mansion house, by then in ruins, and built a Queen Anne style house in its place, much of which can still be seen today. The family certainly settled in and took a liking to the area since Hursley remained with the Heathcotes for 181 years. It was also during their tenure in around 1820 that the original coaching inn was built on the site of The King’s Head, and they may well have popped down for a drink or a bite to eat. Stay in the Heathcote Room as the perfect base to explore the area’s history.
