Simon and Catherine Hamersley offer you a warm Wiltshire welcome to Beckhampton Bed and Breakfast.
2015 Season: 20th March to 19th October
We are opening in time for the Spring Equinox
This exceptional bed and breakfast accommodation offers you delicious food with a full Wiltshire breakfast, served in well appointed and relaxing surroundings.
Situated within the Avebury World Heritage Site we offer you accommodation full of charm and character in our 170 year-old cottage set on the original London to Bath road.
Why not enjoy our hot tub – just the thing to wind down from a busy day.
With many paths and trails nearby including the ancient Ridgeway and Wansdyke, the area offers ideal opportunities for walking, cycling, bird watching and photography. Or you may choose to just relax, taking in the glorious scenery – there are so many ways to enjoy this beautiful area.
Highly praised by guest feedback and Beckhampton Bed and Breakfast on Trip Advisor comments, our family offers clean, good value accommodation.
Simon and Catherine delight in serving a delicious fresh Wiltshire Breakfast made from Wiltshire bacon and sausages with local free range eggs. A selection of home made marmalade and preserves are available. Home made breads are offered as well as fresh fruit. Pre-book a cream tea (see details here) and savour Catherine's wonderful baking. We are happy to cater for specific diets with prior notice - just let us know.
The historic Neolithic sites of Avebury Stone Circle, Windmill Hill, Silbury Hill and West Kennet Long Barrow are a short walk or drive away. Avebury Manor, the subject of the BBC programme, 'To the Manor Reborn', is open and managed like the rest of the Avebury site by the National Trust.
Almost opposite us is the historic Waggon and Horses pub built in 1669 and used by Charles Dickens as a model for his description of a pub in his book "Pickwick Papers". Our guests receive a 15% discount on food and drink on meals taken there.
About 5 minutes drive away, east of us, on the A4 main road to Marlborough, is the Bell at West Overton which is the place to be for a gastronomic treat.
If you are wanting a superb view of corn circles, the Wiltshire Microlight Centre is close by, 2 miles to the west on the A4 main road.
