Snug and comfy, in a gorgeous riverside setting, the River Barn is a wonderful place to linger between East and West.

A lawn stretches from the handsome stone building down to the murmuring river where you can enjoy a pre-prandial drink beneath a parasol on sunny days, or venture to peaceful spots in the orchard garden to enjoy a slice of cake or pint of cider. Children are encouraged to bowl about on the lawn, or paddle in the river to catch shrimp. Well-trodden walks meander from the door into the Wiltshire countryside where you can work up a healthy appetite

Breakfasts are so good they draw locals daily; bigger brunches are served at the weekend, and the coffee is excellent. Lunch could be a hearty club sandwich or a tasty sirloin steak. Much of the produce is sourced from the gardens of the Fonthill Estate, so couldn't be more local. Perfect.
