The Beckford Arms Wiltshire (Fonthill Gifford)

“Great new look for a favourite old inn – immaculate attention to detail will satisfy the most demanding townie. Excellent food, chic bedrooms & relaxed ambience all amid the lovely South Wiltshire countryside. ”

“The Beckford Arms is the embodiment of the perfect weekend away destination. Under two hours from London (not too close and yet not too far for that sneaky weekend treat), it is situated on the edge of the Fonthill Estate in South Wiltshire. Loving restored by current owners Charlie Luxford and Dan Brod, it is now a charming combination of country pub and stylish boutique hotel (without the accompanying high prices). The emphasis here is on quality, whether it be the locally sourced produce that goes into the delicious food, or the super comfy beds, digital radios and ipod docking stations in every room. Most eventualities have been thought of; from cosy hot water bottles for freezing winter nights, to cinema nights on Sundays, when you can slump in one of the deep sofas in the Sitting room with a plate of something comforting and watch the weekly choice. In addition to the eight bedrooms housed in the pub itself, there are now two luxurious lodges on offer, just a ten minute stroll away. These are perfect for a secluded romantic tryst and come with fully stocked fridge for your brekkie. The atmosphere is very laid back, and the Beckford certainly provides a cosseting experience that leaves you wanting to come back for more.”

They say

“The Beckford Arms is a traditional yet stylish country pub located on the edge of the 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 all the comforts of a smart hotel, but at bed and breakfast prices.

The pub has a main bar, restaurant, sitting room, a private dining room in the library, eight bedrooms, and a large garden and terrace.”
