The Beckford Arms is a traditional yet stylish country pub located on the edge of the stunning rolling parkland of the Fonthill Estate in south Wiltshire just off the A303 - only twenty minutes from Stonehenge or Salisbury and under two hours from London by car or train.
The Beckford offers great food in a classic pub environment with simple yet stylish bedrooms at great prices from £95 to £120/room* including breakfast. The pub has a main bar, restaurant, sitting room, a private dining room in the library, eight bedrooms, and a large, very pretty garden and terrace.
A short walk away, we have two fabulous lodges "Splendens Pavilions" which are also very reasonably priced at £175/lodge including breakfast on weekdays and £195 on weekends.
*Please be aware of the small rate increase in 2016.
