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.

First room had no handle on the window so could not open. Second room light in hall not working, flush inefficient (had to use public loos for number 2s!!!). Tv old, no freeview or teletext. Had sandwiches in bar, crisps were served in badly chipped bowl.
