A traditional inn located in the village of Ashbury, at the foot of the White Horse Downs. This location is popular with leisure guests and business travellers alike, providing a peaceful retreat in a truly scenic area, yet well connected to Bath, Oxford, and Cheltenham. Rooms are well-furnished, most benefitting from an en suite bathroom. There's a popular outside terrace for the summer months, a cosy restaurant and a bar providing a good range of à la carte dishes and Arkells real ales. A continental breakfast is served.
