Overview

Alexandra House is set in 20 acres of landscaped grounds within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, four miles from Swindon and half an hour's drive from the Cotswolds.

The Cotswold market town of Cirencester -- where you'll find "handsome streets of golden stone that are generously punctuated by green spaces", according to The Daily Telegraph -- is 30 minutes away by car. It has a selection of boutique shops, cafés and restaurants.

The Georgian city of Bath, and Stonehenge, are both an hour's drive away, while Highclere Castle, a country house in Jacobethan style set in parkland designed by Capability Brown -- and the filming location of "Downton Abbey", is a 35-minute drive away.

Avebury Stone Circle, a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles, is less than 20 minutes' drive away

The 260-acre Lydiard Park is also 20 minutes' drive from the hotel. Lydiard House -- a striking Grade I-listed Palladian house -- is the beating heart of the park and is open Wednesday-Sunday from 11am-4pm.

Cotswold Water Park, an area of 40 square miles with more than 150 lakes that is ideal for walking, cycling, angling and a variety of watersports, is 25 minutes' drive away.

We were in a room which was the furthest from reception it could possibly be. We were woken at 5-30 by a group of foreign tourists banging door, talking loudly and giggling.
