  The Detail...

The Beckford Arms is a traditional country pub that is located on the parkland of Fonthill Estate in South Wiltshire. There are eight super comfy bedrooms and two lodges to choose from with luxurious surroundings combined with competitive prices.

All of the bedrooms are complete with a flat screen TV, and Egyptian cotton sheets, as well as a Siberian goose down duvet, and vintage Welsh blankets on the beds. Each room also has an en-suite bathroom with either a bath, shower, or both and boasts a selection of Bramley handmade natural bath products.

The bedrooms vary in size, with two small doubles, four medium doubles which all have king size beds, and a large double with king size bed and a freestanding cast iron roll top bath. Finally there is The Attic, which is a family room that has a double bedroom, a smaller bedroom for up to two children, a bathroom, and a separate sitting room. Rooms one and two can also interconnect to become a family room as well. Guests also have access to the sitting room, with its comfy sofas, fireplace, DVD projector and screen, and library of books and magazines.

A 15-minute walk away from the pub itself are the two luxury lodges. These each sleep a maximum of two people, with the bed found on a mezzanine level alongside a freestanding roll top bath and separate walk-in shower. They also have amazing views across the surrounding countryside. Downstairs in the lodges is a sitting area with wood burning stove and a kitchen with a well stocked fridge with local produce for making your own breakfast.

The cosy pub itself has a huge open fire and a range of local ales, a varied wine list, and a selection of cocktails. Meanwhile, there is an excellent food menu that changes with the seasons and what fresh and local produce is available. Being located where it is The Beckford Arms is also great for getting out and about and exploring, with lots of walks, cycling, and horse riding trails right on the doorstep. There are also opportunities for fishing and shooting.
