left luggage Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey) / Newbury?

Jump to last reply

My first trip to the UK. Two of us are hoping to visit Highclere Castle on the way from London to Exeter, with at least 1 rolling bag + backpack each. Planning to take train from London to Newbury, taxi to HC. After visit, taxi back to Newbury station then continuing by train to Exeter. Really want to avoid returning to London, booking any local room, or hiring car. Have yet to hear back from HC re: left luggage options there (not that we expect any) or recommendations. Has anyone had experience leaving luggage (for a tip or fee) at any local hotels without being a guest? Any other suggestions? Considering researching coach bus excursions to HC from London and seeing if we could ride one-way, leave luggage on board, then pick luggage up before the group heads back; any experience with such an arrangement? Coordination with driver would have to be perfect. We've already reserved 8th May afternoon entry tickets to HC. Thinking we might also have to ask specially not to buy castle entry ticket from operator, or try to cancel original HC tickets... Where's Carson when you need him? Many thanks!
