An unmissable event for food connoisseurs

With luxury rooms, outstanding countryside views, a personal service and a delicious breakfast of course, our B&B is the place to stay. Possessing all the splendour one finds in a hotel but at a lower price and with greater character, you will be forgiven for thinking that you’re actually staying in one. There is always plenty going on in the surrounding areas, making us the best choice for a bed and breakfast in Hampshire.

If there’s one happening that draws in both the locals and all food lovers from across the UK and further afield, it’s the Alresford Watercress Festival. With a full day of free food and the opportunity to have some fun on the side, it’s no surprise why this nationally acclaimed event attracts such a following.

Taking place on the 21st May, things kick off with the street cavalcade at 10:30am. This shall be led by the popular Sussex Jazz Kings alongside a group of Morris dancers, as well as some school helpers that will accompany the Watercress King and Queen. From atop their horse and cart, their majesty’s shall distribute the first parts of the season’s watercress harvest to all the festival attendees.

In addition, Alresford’s group of butchers, restaurants, caf├ęs, pubs, tearooms, market traders, and wine merchants will proudly display their merchandise to everyone. The whole length of Broad Street is set to become one great big food market, with there being a massive fifty stall Hampshire Farmer’s Market. This is where the finest local cuisine shall be provided, so don’t miss out on the chance for some fine dining.

At Harvest House we like to make certain that our guests remain entertained throughout the duration of their stay at our bed and breakfast in Hampshire. To this end, we make it a point to keep up to date with all the latest events and attractions. We can offer always some suggestions when people become stuck for ideas. If you are thinking about paying us a visit and there is something that you’d like to ask us, we’d be more than happy to help.
