Our Facilities

Accessible room

 Being built in the old outside forge has allowed us to become a 300 year old thatched in with an accessible room. This room, The Hive, has easy wheelchair access, level access from the carpark, a short distance to our accessible entrance to the restaurant. The inside of the room is well equipped and has extra space and a fully accessible wet room.



We have a large carpark next to the accommodation, should you require it. 

In addition to this we have secure cycle storage for those guests who came on or brought their bikes with them.

Later in 2020 we will also have electric vehicle charging points installed.


A flatscreen TV with a remote control is installed in each room for the times you just want to chill or catch up with your favourite programs or news. Each TV has access to extended content through Netflix.

Each room has a fully equipped ensuite bathroom. Two rooms have a bath with a shower over, whilst the other room has a full wetroom with a shower.

Each room is equipped with a hairdryer.

Barbury Castle

Overlooking the town of Swindon, this 60 hectare site is notable for its chalk grassland and associated wildlife. The iron-age hill fort is the best example of this habitat, as part of it has remained undisturbed since ancient times. The thin soil with good drainage allows only specialist plants to grow.

Museum of the Great Western Railway is housed in a beautifully restored Grade II listed railway building in the heart of the former Swindon railway works. Located right next to Swindon’s Designer Outlet, the Museum tells the story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on the Great Western Railway. See famous locomotives, ‘drive’ our train simulator and even work the signals in their interactive GWR signal box!

Coate Water is a country park situated to the southeast of central Swindon not far from Wanborough. It takes its name from its main feature, a reservoir originally built to provide water for the Wilts & Berks Canal. The reservoir formed a 70-acre lake, built in 1822 by diverting the River Cole.

Roves Farm is a family run, working farm open to the public year round. Roves Farm covers 166 hectares just 3 miles east of Swindon, on the Wiltshire and Oxfordshire border.
