“What a find! Picturesque Postcard Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

If you have a chance to stay here, you need to take it. Such a lovely place to stay or even just partake in the delightful delicacies. Charlie the owner/ manager was so welcoming. Could have stayed to chat with him for hours if he wasn't supposed to be there for everyone! The room (5) was perfect for us. If I had to pick up on anything it would be that there wasn't really anywhere to hang or store multiple clothes IF you were staying there for more than three days and (in room 5) the toilet roll holder is on the back of the door which you cannot reach when sat on loo (sorry meant to mention this whilst visiting!) but none of this deterred from our delightful stay.
Lovely open fire for those cold June days!! Board games available. Lovely garden. Crazy but polite and well behaved dog, Essa. Start throwing the ball for her and you'll never stop... you've been warned!! Food was fantabulous. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. New menu each day. Some dishes repeated but I see that as a good use of resources/ products, but if staying longer you may want to explore the area a bit for other places to eat to mix it up a bit. I would say that The Beckford Arms is more in tune for shorter stays. Short stays but multiple times through the year! And Charlie is opening another one in Frome at some point. Looking forward to visiting that one too. Well Done Beckford Arms team!!

Room Tip: I would imagine all the rooms are as good as each other but as we didn't see them all its diffic...

Wonderful. A treat for my husband's birthday an hour and half drive but well worth it. Food perfectly cooked, staff friendly a lovely setting. Would recommend the roast pork just melted in your mouth.

The Beckford Arms was the perfect venue for a 40th birthday weekend reunion with family and friends. Accommodating our group of 14 adults and 10 children in the sumptuous bedrooms, everything had the wow factor and the attention to detail was incredible. Huge thanks and compliments to the Chef(s), the food was absolutely delicious and everyone loved the way the sharing menus were presented. Thanks must also go to Hannah, Charlie, Carl and Daniel who organized our stay so effortlessly and made us feel very welcome. There’s no doubt that The Beckford Arms is a gem of a place, and we look forward to coming back very soon.

We went for a night to celebrate a friend's birthday and had a wonderful time in this very relaxed but stylish pub. They could not have been more accommodating. Very good food, great room with properly powered shower, lovely bath and really comfortable bed. The whole visit was a great success and we would like to return with our children to do more exploring of the area. I believe they have a family room on the top floor.

Will have to go back anyway as I am running out of the fabulous handwash I bought from them. Can't really stop raving about this place. We had a great time.

Room Tip: Would probably be nice to face the garden.

This is such a lovely place with excellent service and incredible attention to detail. As well, the food is excellent. It is an ideal getaway to the countryside, especially for a romantic escape. Definitely the best place I have stayed in England. Our only regret is that we only stayed one night - you could easily spend several here. We will be back!

A real gem. A proper pub, very friendly, comfortable and cosy in an idyllic location. The room was comfortable, with food tasty, the wine and beer list great, the breakfast excellent, etc, etc. The effort put into the Jubilee party was great and the atmosphere showed how popular this place is with the locals also. We felt very looked after and we will definitely return!

The Beckford was recommended to me by a friend for a dinner party. On the basis that it is always best to check a place out first, I went for dinner and stayed overnight. What a wonderful place - handy location, quiet and comfortable leading to a great sleep. The rooms are well laid out with sumptuous bathrooms and lots of little items that make it different, homely and special - such as fresh milk at night and in the morning, hot water bottles with their own 'cosy'. After a fabulous stay followed my dinner party - in the 'library' - which is ideal for 10 or so people. The staff were excellent - attentive and helpful but not overbearing; and the food was something really special.There are lots of good food in restaurants these days, but this was outstanding. Have now stayed there a further three times and will keep doing so.
Breakfast is a delightfully relaxed affair ... and my only little niggle is that as someone who likes to be in the office early, breakfast could do with starting a touch earlier ... but for a tourist its simply perfect.

Room Tip: There are some rooms that are smaller than others. Ask for the ones with the king size and bathroom.
