B and Bs in Marlborough
We are in East Wiltshire and also close to Berkshire in the attractive village of SHALBOURNE. Hungerford and the M4 Motorway junction 14 are 3/5 miles away and we are 9 miles from Marlborough, Newbury and Andover. Our recently restored Grade 2* LISTED HOUSE has early 14th century origins including an intact medieval hall house roof. The Kennet Canal and Savernake Forest are close by with numerous footpaths for very good WALKING.
We stand in our own land and have a new garden with a heated SWIMMING POOL. We have sown WILDFLOWERS in three fields and maintain footpaths around. We also have geese, chickens and a small dog. Each room has a colour television and basin. Whilst we do not serve evening meals there is the popular village PUB just 150m away. We are a non smoking house and guests can enjoy the use of our swimming pool .
Location: Situated on the edge of the country village of Shalbourne, on the borders of Wiltshire and Berkshire, the Barn has been expertly and sensitively converted from one end of our old Stable Range and is linked to the main Grade II * listed farmhouse, which itself has origins in the early 14th century. Although we no longer run a working farm we keep geese and chickens and have reverted our arable fields to wildflower meadows, around which there are footpaths for walking.
Visitors are welcome to share our heated outdoor swimming pool during the summer months at our convenience or play tennis on the local court. The Barn is also centrally placed for exploring an historic part of southern England, Winchester, Salisbury, Bath, Oxford and Windsor all being within an hour‚s drive. Closer to Shalbourne are the local market towns of Hungerford and Marlborough, both well known for their antique shops, the ancient stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, the Kennet & Avon Canal (narrow boat trips) and the Savernake Forest. London is over an hour by train from Great Bedwyn (2 miles with free parking) and junction 14 of the M4 is approx. 7 miles.
Accommodation: Private entrance with carport from rear of the Barn into sitting/dining room with electric Śwoodburning effect‚ stove. Compact but very well equipped fitted kitchen.
