Marsh Farm Hotel boasts an elite country charm, set in the luxurious, open countryside of Royal Wootton Bassett. It houses 48 rooms in total, with a couple of side annexes highly recommended for a peaceful and secluded stay.

Marsh Farm Hotel is perhaps a more intimate venue for weekends away, rather than frequented group visits. There is no allocated coach parking, yet the spacious car park on-site is large enough to fit a reasonably sized vehicle if required.

An open fire invites guests into a darkened, cosy bar area, which travels through to The Glasshouse Restaurant. Its simplistic setting is more like a conservatory, with the authentic patter of rain, which can be heard above as guests tuck into a full English breakfast. Private dining is available in The Range Room, where our group enjoyed a basic lunch around 1330hrs.

Marsh Farm Hotel sits on the edge of the Cotswold’s – a mere five miles from Swindon – boasting direct travel to such destinations as STEAM Museum of the Great Western Railway and Stonehenge. For more information visit www.marshfarmhotel.co.uk
