About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel

- Bath is less than 35 minutes' drive away, while the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is around 15 minutes' drive away
The AA calls Beechfield House a "charming" country-house hotel with eight acres of "beautiful" grounds. Set in the Wiltshire countryside between the Cotswolds and North Wessex Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this 4-star property even has its own arboretum within its manicured gardens.
Lacock Abbey is a 5-minute drive from the hotel. This National Trust property was founded in the 13th century as a nunnery and later became a private country house with fortifications. Its photography museum, gardens and cloisters -- which were used as a filming location in two Harry Potter films and "The Other Boleyn Girl" -- are open year-round (the abbey is open Thu-Sun from Nov-Mar and daily for the rest of the year).
The Cotswolds and North Wessex Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are both around 15 minutes' drive away -- perfect for walkers and seekers of stunning scenery. Bath, with its impressive medieval abbey, Roman baths and stone-building lined streets, is around 25 minutes' drive away.
The hotel has a 2-AA-Rosette restaurant, so you don't need to venture very far to find good food. The à la carte and tasting menus both use herbs, fruit and vegetables from the gardens, and afternoon tea can be enjoyed in front of the open log fire.
All rooms are individually designed and Comfy Rooms have garden or woodland views. Wi-Fi is free.
