Bed and Breakfast
Situated in the heart of Wiltshire, Melksham is an ideal location for exploring the West Country.
You will be spoilt for choice with the local places to visit and variety of popular attractions.
A few of our favourites are below - please ask for other ideas.
Lacock Village and Abbey
The charming National Trust village of Lacock, where many a period drama has been filmed, is just a few minutes drive away. Enjoy a stroll through the quaint streets before visiting Lacock Abbey which was founded by Lady Ela the Countess of Salisbury in the reign of Henry III.
Then finish off with refreshments in one of the local pubs or cafes.
City of Bath
Bath became a World Heritage Site in 1987. Nobody can possibly visit the area without spending at least a day in Georgian Bath – for a real treat, bathe in the naturally warm, mineral-rich waters of the Thermae Bath Spa, take a bus tour, see the splendour of the Abbey and Roman Baths, or simply enjoy strolling through the characterful streets filled with interesting shops, cafes and beautiful buildings
Bowood House and Gardens
Bowood House is the magnificent family home of the Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne and is open between April and November every year. The grounds are just beautiful, 2,000 acres of rolling ‘Capability Brown’ parkland and considered to be one of Wiltshire’s hidden treasures.
The children will love the adventure playground and Tractor Ted’s Little Farm, and the 18 hole championship golf course and spa is perfect if you’re after some 5* luxury downtime.
The UK’s number 1 safari park, Longleat is just over half an hour away. Set in the stunning Wiltshire countryside, visitors can enjoy a drive–through Safari adventure seeing the famous lions, tigers and monkeys up close. Explore the magnificent Elizabethan House or let the little ones loose in the Adventure Park. Longleat really is a fun day out for all the family and has a fantastic calendar of events including Firework Spectaculars and a Festival of Light.
