Manor Farm House has comfortable and spacious B&B accommodation in a very lovely, Georgian era, farmhouse on the northern edge of the Salisbury Plain near Marlborough, Wiltshire, U.K. The family also run the adjoining 500 acre arable farm which, like the farmhouse, has been in that same family for five generations, and has wonderful views over the surrounding countryside, part of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Grade 2 listed farmhouse is full of character and charm and has three very comfortable, and equally charming, guest bedrooms. One super-king size double room, one twin room and one king size double bedroom. They all are spacious and come with flat screen TV and full length mirrors. The bathrooms are particularly nice too with traditional enamel bath tubs and power showers.
You will be treated to a fine breakfast every morning, a freshly cooked, full English farm house breakfast, and/or a selection of cereals, fruits, jams, bread, cheeses, porridge etc. Dietary restrictions can be catered for too with a little advanced notice. For food throughout the day there are some good options nearby including the Barley Corn country pub, just a two minute walk down the road, which does quality evening meals.
The large farm is arable, growing mainly wheat and barley but with some linseed and oil seed rape and linseed too. The family are keen on respecting the environment too and in mind of that around 20,000 trees have been planted there in the last thirty years or so. And, all over the farm you will see evidence of traditional hedge laying and old style skills like coppicing and thatching.
The farm is just south of the town of Marlborough on the A338 Salisbury Road. This is the edge of the wild and beautiful Salisbury Plain, and the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here you will find some of England’s most beautiful countryside; a classic south of England terrain of rolling hills and plains, woods, rivers and so many delightfully picturesque little villages.
The farm is also well situated for exploring some of England’s most iconic historical places from the infamous Stonehenge to the Avebury Stone Circle, Silbury Hill and Britain’s oldest road; the Ridgeway, all of which are less than 25 minute’s drive away.
The journey from London should take under an hour and a half via the A4 and M4 through Slough or the M3 via Basingstoke.
Note: Sorry but no children and no pets allowed at this farmstay!
