The two inns
Close to the bustling town of Tisbury,
The Beckford Arms is a country pub reinvented for the
21st century, with a relaxed atmosphere, easy-going service and
just the right amount of 18th century eccentricity. Its glorious
rural location, on the edge of the Fonthill Estate, makes this a
superb spot for a little rest and relaxation.
Enjoy lunch on the terrace or while away the sunny days in a
hammock. There's a boule piste for those wishing to flex their ball
skills or mosey into local Tisbury, a charming town with plenty to
see and do.
Make sure to check out the Beckford Bottle Shop, with a
fantastic selection of over 300 wines from around the world, as
well as craft beers, ciders and boutique spirits, you're sure to
find your favourite tipple from the inn to take home with you.
The Museum Inn was built by the father of modern
archaeology, General Pitt-Rivers and this 17th-century tavern is
the archetypal countryside inn. Surrounded by the rose gardens and
postcard-perfect cottages of Farnham, the inn's thatched roof and
cosy interior gives a traditional, homely feel. There are eight
comfortable guest rooms and a self-contained cottage that can house
up to 16 people.
A highlight is a cosy sitting room for the exclusive use of
guests, which has comfy chairs, its own fireplace and an honesty
bar. Inside the pub, there are plenty of snugs and intimate corners
to settle with a relaxing drink. The restaurant serves good British
cooking with a modern twist using fresh, local ingredients. Located
in Cranborne Chase, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural
Beauty, where there is a playground of ancient woodlands and chalk
river valleys perfect for walking, cycling, riding, fishing and
