“This is the B&B that I want to return to!!!”
Reviewed 16 August 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days and nights at the Southdown B&B. Our room was large, bright, airy, and immaculate. The semi-private adjoining lounge was well stocked with books, maps, postcards, beverages and snacks. Our hostess and host, Sue and Martyn, certainly went the extra mile to insure that we had the best time possible. Breakfasts were scrumptious and the mile or so walk through a tree lined and canopied path were the perfect beginnings to our exciting days. We had such a wonderful time, due in part to our attentive and caring hosts, that we are planning a return trip to the Southdown B&B again next year.

Sitting in the glass-walled conservatory eating a magnificent breakfast, looking out at the large green garden screened with trees, I was able to watch the many birds which visit this peaceful spot. The previous evening I walked down the adjacent lane, and met a young deer. Today at breakfast, I "met" Freddie the pheasant, who came up and stood right on the step to look in. This is how close you can get to nature here!
I had the White Room, which has two windows: one faces the front of the house; the other the fields at the side. At night, peace & quiet, and no street lights or busy roads. When darkness falls, it is complete. In the daytime, the house is filled with sunshine and light.
I come here when I want peace and quiet, nurturing, restful sleep, and good food.
After my walks, there was the hot tub in the garden, and I was always welcomed with a cup of herbal tea and some delicious homemade cakes.
Sue & Martyn are so kind and welcoming, and I already recommend this place to my friends and family. I haven't even mentioned the beautiful countryside; the guided walks that Sue arranges; the ancient and sacred "Quaker's Walk" beside the B&B, which leads into Devizes... and of course the proximity of Avebury, Stonehenge and many other places of interest.

This was my second stay at Southdown and it was every bit as good as the first. Very comfy, clean room with a huge shower and views over the garden and surrounding countryside; imaginative breakfast choices every day (smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, creamy mushrooms on toast, smoked haddock and poached egg, huge croissants, blueberry and banana muffins); great walks on the doorstep as well as slightly further afield. All in all a brilliant holiday for walking.

As a walking group we have visited hundreds of B&Bs and hotels all over the country and this is one of the best we have found. Sue is a very welcoming and well-organised hostess and her baking is superb.We had a very pleasant stroll into Devizes, along a green lane, for our evening meal. Breakfast was especially notable, with a full English from local produce of the very best or scrambled eggs with smoked salmon as an option.A fantastic fruit salad and bluberry muffins made it even more special.The whole house is full of the most fascinating artwork which makes it a very stimulating and peaceful base from which many local walks can begin.

Wonderful hosts, clean and lovely house, great breakfasts and afternoon tea. Kids loved the hot tub in the garden. Highly recommended for a relaxing and comfortable weekend break.
