Interaction with guests

Bedwyn is a lovely, friendly traditional village and there's lots to see and do here, and in the surrounding area. We are happy to help guests with their trip to and make recommendations.
I'm a member of our local footpath group and would be pleased to advise on walks in the area.
My husband rings at our local churches and he could arrange for visiting bell-ringers to join the team for ringing.

The neighbourhood

Great Bedwyn lies within the North Wessex Downs, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, described on their website as 'a unique and spectacular landscape that includes tranquil open downland, ancient woodland and chalk streams in the centre of southern England'. The village has all the advantages of a traditional English village, plus a mainline railway station to London. The Three Tuns Pub is within walking distance and has an excellent restaurant, (Nov 2016 The Cross Keys is currently closed - awaiting new owners) a convenience store, a post-office selling freshly baked bread, cakes and filled rolls - don't miss Wiltshire's famous lardy cake!. Here you can also buy gifts, other essentials and pet supplies. There are plenty of other places to eat nearby too: pubs at Froxfield, Wilton and Shalbourne, a farm shop café near Hungerford, a café at Crofton (closed during the winter season), an Indian restaurant, an award winning restaurant at Little Bedwyn, and the visiting fish and chip van on Tuesdays!
There are many wonderful walks in the surrounding area, around Savernake Forest and along the Kennet and Avon canal. Marlborough hosts many annual events including, in July, a popular Jazz Festival and Marlborough College Summer School. There is also an annual Literary Festival, Open Studio weekends and the October Mop Fair. The Wiltshire Cycleway passes through the village, along with Sustrans National cycle routes 4 & 403.

Getting around

Public Transport: Trains: Our village is fortunate to have its own railway station less than 10 minutes away on foot. Bedwyn is on the main line connecting London Paddington and the West Country. There’s a regular daytime schedule to London. Buses: There’s a weekday daytime service to Marlborough and Hungerford.
Airports: The closest airport is Heathrow, with a connecting coach service to Reading Station, on the direct line to Bedwyn. Transport connections from Gatwick or Stansted are via London. There is no taxi service operating from the village so it is best to book taxis in advance from Hungerford or Marlborough companies.
Guests' cars can be parked off-road at the front of the property.

Other things to note

Only the occasional train runs late at night through the village but these don't usually disturb our visitors.

Mobile telephone coverage is patchy in the village.

Please be patient if you don’t receive a reply to your booking enquiry immediately. Emails will be checked and replied to most mornings and evenings.

We really enjoyed our stay. Judy and David are the perfect hosts and have made the annex extremely comfortable. We had everything we needed and lots of thoughtful extras. I would definitely recommend Judy's place.

The welcome and inclusiveness made this stay memorable in the way that only a B&B can. From the welcome tea and homemade cake to the breakfast we were made to feel more like family guests than clients. An outstanding night away that we thoroughly enjoyed. Make sure you check out The Harrow nearby in Little Bedwyn for an excellent meal.

Beautiful countryside location. Lovely and comfortable room with a great ensuite shower. Tea and coffee facilities were great too. Plus all toiletries were provided. Judy was a great host and made it easy for us to get to the restaurant by giving us a lift. Breakfast was perfect too. Highly recommend staying here!

Judy's Place is like home from home; we had a warm welcome with a choice of teas, coffee and Judy's home made banana cake before settling into our spotless double room complete with door out onto the patio and beautiful garden. The shower was one of the best we've ever used and Judy has provided a large selection of toiletries to cater for all needs. There are hot drink making facilities in the room, which include elderflower cordial and chocolate biscuits. We were having dinner at The Harrow and were given a lift there and back- truly unbeatable hospitality. And the continental breakfast was top notch, fresh fruits, yoghurt, cereal, croissants, fruit bread & toast. Outstanding hosts in a lovely quiet village location, simply the best place we have ever stayed!

Judy and Dave made us feel most welcome and relaxed from when we arrived. The ensuite room was pretty, very comfortable and immaculate clean with lots of thoughtful touches making our short stay enjoyable. The continental breakfast was lovely with lots of choice from fresh fruit to pastries. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here and we hope to return.

A very warm welcome by Judy started a lovely overnight stay. The room and ensuite were excellent as was breakfast the following morning, including apple juice from the garden. Judy very kindly took us to the Harrow and back and offered lots of very useful local tips on walking & sightseeing. Thoroughly recommended!

Judy User ProfileJudy is a superhost.

I enjoy many activities of English village country life, including gardening, growing vegetables, walking in the countryside, competing in pub quizzes with my friends and spending time with my family. I work as a library assistant at a local independent school and also as an EFL teacher. I also do voluntary work helping foreign students in a local college, and I help run the shop and refreshments at our local windmill. My husband, Dave, is a telecoms engineer, bell-ringer and amateur dramatics enthusiast. We are new to B & B hosting but look forward to meeting the high standards of Airbnb hosts, and to sharing this interesting area and beautiful countryside with our guests.
