The Three Tuns, Great Bedwyn recommends
The Kennet and Avon canal runs through the bottom of Great Bedwyn and adds a really interesting dynamic to the life of the village. A number of people live permanently on the barges that are moored here while others are just passing through on holiday. There is a little path that follows the canal along which is one of our favourite places to spend time with the kids, watching the locks in action, seeing the ducks and wildlife and swimming in the adjacent river.
The Harrow at Little Bedwyn recommends
Visit a clutch of Michelin starred restaurants and excellent hotels plus top quality farm shop – all featuring local products.
Buckerfields Barn & Sonia's Plants recommends
Wander in the mighty medieval Savernake Forest and wonder about those who have passed beneath the boughs of the ancient trees over the last 1000 years or so.
Almost every weekend throughout the summer there are a myriad of church, school and village fetes occurring across the county. They provide instant entertainment for the little ones, with bouncy castles, face painting, games and sweet treats. Throw in a glass of Pimms for the adults and your afternoon’s entertainment is all taken care of! Our village fete in Great Bedwyn is particularly lovely and has a great community spirit.
Sticks & Stones recommends
It’s lovely for café owners to have a café they can go to and be looked after. A rare treat for Liis and I, but one that we love. Get there early on a sunny day in order to sit in the garden.
