Accommodation Description:

Southdown is a modern detached house in a rural location in the heart of Wiltshire. Just a mile from the historic market town of Devizes & the Kennet & Avon Canal, it's within easy reach of all local attractions: Avebury, Stonehenge, Lacock, Salisbury, Castle Combe, Bath etc. Surrounded by footpaths & bridleways, it's also a great location for walkers and cyclists & we provide tailor-made walking holidays as well as 'regular' B&B.

Guests are assured of a very warm welcome & a comfortable stay.

Southdown is a modern detached house set in a large garden in the hamlet of Roundway Village, a mile from the historic market town of Devizes. We are rated 4 stars with Visit Britain and hold both Walkers and Cyclists Welcome, along with a Silver Award from Green Tourism. A footpath running alongside the house leads to the Kennet & Avon Canal and the attractions and facilities of Devizes.

A short walk in the other direction takes you up onto Roundway Down on the edge of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here you can find the Devizes Millennium White Horse (one of 8 horses cut into the Wiltshire Downs), the site of the Battle of Roundway (1643) and Oliver’s Castle hillfort. Being situated in the centre of the county, this is a perfect location for touring the whole of the county with its wonderful towns, villages and ancient sites, eg: Avebury, Stonehenge, Lacock, Salisbury, Castle Combe, Bath etc.

Whether you are touring, walking, cycling or on business, you are assured of a very warm welcome and a comfortable stay. We have three guest bedrooms: two doubles with en-suite facilities and a twin with a private bathroom. There is a guest lounge containing local information, books and maps etc, and a gallery with photos of the area, drinks facilities and a guest computer.

We have wi-fi if you wish to bring a laptop. Our renowned breakfast is served in the conservatory or dining room, depending on the time of year. Both overlook the back garden.

Guests are welcome to use the garden and the hot tub. Southdown is also the home of White Horse Walking Holidays. We offer you all the elements that make up a great walking holiday or short break for little more than the cost of B&B.

Southdown is on the Wessex Ridgeway, White Horse Trail and Mid-Wilts Way and is only 9 miles from the start/finish point of The Ridgeway National Trail. Whether you wish to walk 2 miles or 20, we can tailor walks to suit your requirements. See our website for more info.
