Based at the Castle & Ball Hotel in the attractive town of Marlborough, this holidays will include walks near Avebury and on the Marlborough Downs.
We’ll see Avebury’s striking 5000 year old stone circle which has been designated a World Heritage Site, and we will walk down West Kennet Avenue – an avenue of standing stones leading to the Sanctuary. On our way to West Kennet Long Barrow – an ancient burial chamber which we can enter – we will also see fascinating Silbury Hill. On the last day we can head up onto the lovely Marlborough Downs or walk over Fyfield Down with its numerous Sarsen stones and stunning views. Our new very gentle grade involves walks of around 3 miles with plenty of stops and opportunities to visit local cafes and attractions. There may still be stiles to negotiate and some uneven ground.
The Castle & Ball offers beautifully decorated ensuite twins and ensuite singles. In the evening we can choose from the hotel’s delicious menu, or go out to eat (evening meals are not included – from £15). Plenty of parking, or Bedwyn station is 7 miles by taxi or good bus service.
Price includes: 3 nights part board in ensuite twins; transport to walks. Single rooms may be available if you book early – supplement £20 per night.
