Life can get busy and stressful at any time of year, but it can all feel even more acute with the cool weather settling in. The warmth and fun of summer months are fading into distant memory, more layers are required, the air is crisp, and leaves are changing and falling. So it’s no wonder many people want to retreat from the pressures of life to the countryside, with Wiltshire being high on the list for planning an escape. The County is a firm favourite as it’s easy to reach from London, accessible by many transport methods, and an area where you can’t help but immerse in natural beauty everywhere you look. It also has so many excellent restaurants serving everything from fine dining, pub meals, cafes with excellent coffee, and venues crafting afternoon teas. So it’s no wonder both food and nature lovers are drawn here.
The most important part of a break is choosing a good hotel where you can take time and relax in luxurious surroundings; indulging and escaping your regular busy life is essential. Beechfield House is your next perfect getaway for so many reasons – we have listed our favourites below.
Why Beechfield House
There are many reasons and advantages to taking an Autumn break at Beechfield House Hotel in Beanacre. First is the location – situated right on the edge of Melksham, the hotel is near all the must-see Wiltshire destinations, making it excellent for sightseeing and discovering Wiltshire delights. Second is the lack of crowds. Cooler weather often keeps many people indoors and at home, but the tranquility can be spectacular and a welcome reprieve for those who venture out. Third, the hotel itself is somewhere you can simply be, without pressure or expectation. A place to sleep late, take time to think, or curl up with a good book.
The hotel features beautiful facilities, including our very own heated pool (open until late October) to soak away your troubles, do some laps, or sip a drink poolside. There are also expansive grounds to wander and abundant nature to enjoy. Excellent, especially if you want to bring a furry friend along for the trip – who is also more than welcome at Beechfield. The hotel features 24 comfortable bedrooms named for trees in the garden, with luxurious and tasteful decorations and Egyptian cotton linens to ensure your sleep is rejuvenating. And of course, then there is the food. You’ll never have to go far or leave the hotel if you don’t want to, as the Beechfield Restaurant serves a fantastic selection of food and wine to suit all palettes. You can also elect to dine across one of four dining rooms, and the outdoor terrace is also open when the weather permits.
