Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Pigs, pies, pints and pillows’ – find it all at this village dining pub-with-rooms, on a working organic farm run by food ethics pioneer Helen Browning. The well-established pub, managed by Tim Finney for Arkell’s Brewery, is a quirky, affable spot (the annual International Pig Racing Festival is held here). It is well liked for the real ales, organic wines and cordials, and daily-changing menus using meat from the farm and produce from local villagers. Check in here, then stroll through the garden to recently refurbished bedrooms set around a sunny courtyard. Each is made inviting with a woollen throw on the bed, a coffee machine, maybe a double-ended bath. Walk the Ridgeway, then return to ‘wallow in’ the residents’ lounge stocked with books, music and hot drinks. 7 miles E of Swindon.
