Location
  • With only 8 bedrooms on offer you have to be organised to secure Room 1 – that’s the one with the large window, strategically positioned at the foot of your bed.

    However, do not dispare if it’s not available. The other 7 are as enchanting, especially room 5 and 7. The former offers a glorious spot on a sunny afternoon while the latter features a free standing roll top bath in the room.

    Dining at the The Beckford Arms is strictly on local ingredients, well prepared and presented. The kitchen makes a good use of game and seasonal vegetables in its effort to create a seductive menu.
