Bank Holiday country breaks in Melksham, Wiltshire

Had a busy few months since Christmas? Fancy a relaxing long weekend break in one of the most beautiful counties in Southern England, staying in a luxury room in a quiet private hotel?

Regular readers and delegates on our courses may already have read a lot about Well House Manor in Melksham, but did you know that we're open at weekends too, offering an elegant base for couples who want to see nearby attractions such as Lacock, Longleat, Holt, Bath and Bowood.

BANK HOLIDAY SPECIAL - our rooms will be available "3 nights for the price of 2" - that's 141.00 per room, including continental breakfast and all the other usual facilities.

Easter - arrive on Thursday 5th, Friday 6th or Saturday 7th April.

Mayday holiday - arrive on Friday 4th or Saturday 5th May.
Edit - 12th April. FULLY BOOKED for arrival on 4th May, but we do have some availability remaining for arrival on 5th

Spring Bank Holiday - arrive on Friday 25th or Saturday 26th May.

Accommodation is limited - please email us to make a booking. Let us know if you prefer double or twin, bath or shower ... or if you've stayed before, ask for your favourite room.

Lacock, at the southern tip of the Cotswolds, is just 5 miles away. Lacock Abbey, a monastery dissolved by Henry VIII was later the home of Fox Talbot, who took his first reversal process photograph there of the Abbey window. These days, virtually the whole village is owned by the National Trust and a visit there is a worthwhile trip back in time


The town of Devizes is about 6 miles from Melksham. The Kennet and Avon Canal climbs from the valley of the river Avon to Pewsey Vale at Devizes, with this magnificent set of locks rising up Cane Hill. The town centre itself has quaint alleyways, historic buildings and a selection of interesting shops. And don't miss either the Devizes Museum or the Canal museum at the Wharfside.


There's many a fine walk to be taken on the Marlborough Downs, rising just beyon Devizes and continuing for many miles. Heathland, pastures, and bluebell woods. The ancient Offa's Dyke, Silbury Hill, White Horses cut in the chalk and (as shown in this picture) the stone avenue and circle at Avebury - older and larger than the more famous Stonehenge.


Just three miles from Melksham, at Holt, are "The Courts" - another National Trust property where you can spend happy hours exploring from formal gardens to Arboretum. Great Chalfield Manor, a 15th Century Manor House, is another National Trust property that's close by.


And don't dismiss Melksham itself! It's a bustling market town, dating back to medieval times when it was a milk and wool centre. In Regency times, Melksham was projected to expand into a Spa town like Bath (12 miles away) and a number of grand Lodging houses such as the one you see picture here were built. Today, you'll find charming riverside walks, with nature reserve, old churchyard and more ... and vistas. Streets where lovely old buildings mix with more modern, where you can look at the old buildings such as the roundhouse used for wool drying and the masonic hall one minutes, then be shopping in Boots or Woolies the next.
