Good Hotel Guide Review
On the edge of the Wiltshire Downs, this quirky, affable dining pub-with-rooms stands on an organic farm, a vision of food ethics pioneer Helen Browning. Regular returnees laud the ‘excellent, friendly’ staff and the well-established pub (Arkell’s Brewery), where visitors tuck in to real ales, organic wines and generous, scrupulously sourced meals. Set around a sunny courtyard, well-equipped, modern-rustic bedrooms are ‘clean, comfortable, and warm when necessary’; residents also have an inviting lounge stocked with books, hot drinks, a record player and a collection of LPs. ‘Plenty of walks’ from the door: cross woodland and orchards; roam across hills or wildflower valleys; visit the farm’s pigs, sheep and cattle.
