Giddy up! This is a pony you’re going to want to catch. The Running Horse, located in the cute village of Littleton near Winchester, is a charming country pub with characterful rooms.

Stepping into the inn, visitors are treated to a cosy vibe, full of rustic charm and, with a nod to its name, even the odd polo mallet knocking around. A four AA-star inn with a Rosette award for culinary excellence, food is a big draw for people here. The kitchen serves everything from breakfast to bar snacks, with local and seasonal ingredients and traditional British cuisine firmly at the centre of the offerings.

If you’re looking to stay the night, there are 15 rooms (catering for singletons right up to a family of four) each with its own individual charm for a relaxing night’s sleep. And, with it being so close to Winchester (the Cathedral is a mere 2.7 miles away), it’s the perfect countryside stop off for sightseeing around the county capital. Time saddle up and go for a hack, I think!
