Overview

Set in a stunning village location at the foot of Salisbury Plain, the Three Daggers began life as a humble wool barn in 1750 and recent investment has transformed Edington's local into a stunning inn.

Threatened with closure and redevelopment in 2010, the Three Daggers was rescued by the owner of nearby Priory Farm, an Amercian property developer, who has lavished money on the place, creating a fabulous culinary destination inn and community hub, replete with a farm shop, micro-brewery, nine very comfortable bedrooms and a spa.

The icing on the cake is Hillside Cottage, a new-build house set on the hill opposite the pub, which offers six country-house style bedrooms, a living room and kitchen, spa facilities and great views. Although geared friends or family groups taking the whole cottage, rooms are available on a B&B basis.

In the farm shop you can view the micro-brewery below and sample the finished brews in the farm shop or the pub.

Scenic & Serene

Peaceful village setting beneath Salisbury Plain (good walks) with glorious Wiltshire views from the rooms and spa at Hillside Cottage.

Farm Shop & Brewery

Housed in a fine timber-framed building, Edington Farm Shop is a destination for foodies, filled with local and regionally sourced goodies; excellent cafe and micro-brewery too.

Events & Celebrations

Weddings are held in the microbrewery, a light-filled space perfect for ceremonies and receptions for up to 50.

Rooms

Impressive rooms are split between the main inn and stunning Hillside Cottage, built in 2017 and located opposite the Three Daggers with far-reaching views across a fertile valley.

Coulston, Tinhead and Priory rooms above the bar are country-rustic in design and style and are super comfortable with rich fabrics, crisp linen on big beds, antique furnishings, soothing hues, soft lighting and fabulous bathrooms - Coulston has a claw-foot bath and a vast walk-in shower; Tinhead boasts a vaulted beamed ceiling. Rooms share a cosy living room/kitchen area with open fire.

Hillside Cottage is the ultimate English countryside experience, a private retreat featuring six stunning en suite rooms decorated in country-chic style, a formal living room and fully-equipped kitchen. Rooms work as an overflow to the inn, but the cottage is perfect for larger groups and family gatherings. Extra chill out space includes an outdoor plunge pool, hot tub, wet and dry sauna barn, bocce and croquet courts, and Trailhead Cabin which offers a dartboard, games, wood burning stove, and outdoor fire pit. Massage and other wellness treatments are available at an additional cost at the on-site spa.

Restaurant & bar

At its heart, the Three Daggers is still very much a quintessential village pub with low beams, relaxing sofas, crackling log fies, home-brewed ales and local drinkers in the bustling bar. Top-notch pub food (2 rosettes) from former Allium chef-patron James Graham is served in the adjacent dining room and airy conservatory.

James is passionate about provenance and seasonality and his short, ever-evolving menus combine pub classics with more inventive dishes and make sound use of local ingredients from artisan suppliers and the owner's farm in the village. Priory Farm cultivates incredible flowers, pure honey, hops for the brewery, and fresh fruit and vegetables for the kitchen.

Snack on Wiltshire charcuterie, perhaps start with ham hock terrine with spiced tomato piccalilli, then tuck into with Edington pork belly, roast apple, cavalo nero and scrumpy sauce, or Stokes Marsh Farm sirloin steak with bearnaise and triple-cooked chips. Don't miss the farm shop & brewery next door - cafe, local seasonal goodies from artisan suppliers, and pints of Daggers Ale to take home.

Things to do

Britain's most famous ancient monument and included among the country's 25 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Stonehenge is just the place to go for the summer and winter solstace in June and December, when the sun rises and sets over the ancient stones - a unique and magical experience.

Acknowledged as one of Europe's finest landscaped parkland gardens, Stourhead is managed by the National Trust. The gardens serve as a perfect example of the English landscape style, and the lake is a picture at any time of the year. The autumn colours here are a real treat.

The picturesque Saxon village of Lacock has changed little since the Middle Ages and is well worth a visit. Preserved by the National Trust, Lacock's stone cottages and narrow streets are regularly visited by film and television crews and looking round, you can understand why Harry Potter and Cranford have been filmed here, among many familiar productions and adaptations. While in the village, take a look at Lacock Abbey and the Fox Talbot Museum of photography.
