Frensham Pond Hotel & Spa
Originally a 15th-century country house, Frensham Pond Hotel & Spa boasts a stunning lakeside setting and can be found on the edge of the Surrey Hills. As a four-star hotel, Frensham Pond offers a taste of luxury while retaining a welcoming and homely feel. Whether you’re looking for a relaxed rural retreat, a base from which to explore the countryside, or a stress-free family break, the team is happy to accommodate you, and with Frensham Common and the market town of Farnham nearby there’s plenty to do.
There are 53 rooms available at Frensham Pond Hotel and each one boasts its own distinct character and charm. Rich autumnal hues create a warm and cosy feel, while superior rooms offer outstanding views of the pond and garden rooms boast their own spacious outdoor patios.
As well as its beautiful bedrooms, Frensham Pond Hotel is home to The Watermark Restaurant – a laid-back, fine dining establishment. The most striking feature of the restaurant is its huge floor-to-ceiling windows, which create a light and airy space during the day and offer beautiful views of the night sky in the evening. To complement The Watermark’s impressive outlook, the chefs provide an array of delightful seasonal dishes, each one made with local ingredients including Red Tractor-accredited Casterbridge beef. At lunchtime, the menu begins with appetising starters of homemade soup and smoked trout with apple and walnut salad, while mains range from succulent grilled steaks to seared tuna served with sautéed green beans and a vegetarian option of a three cheese and spring onion filo pastry. The evening à la carte selection is just as varied. Why not sample the baked lemon garlic herb chicken breast which is served with Asian salad, roast potatoes and green beans? If that doesn’t tempt you, plump for the twice-cooked pork belly with roasted root vegetables and black pudding fritters. To finish, I’d recommend the banoffee pie – this irresistible sweet treat is homemade and served with vanilla cream and berry compote – a perfect end to a summer meal.
For guests looking to relax and chat over drinks, Frensham Pond Hotel’s Indigo Bar & Lounge is the perfect place. As well as a great array of beer, wine, cider and spirits, Indigo boasts a tempting bar menu full of tasty snacks, hearty meals and indulgent desserts.
