Things to do nearby
Situated in the countryside we are spoiled for things to do.
Located just five minutes from the Bell & Crown, Stourhead sets the scene for one of the most magical post-lunch strolls in the country. The garden features an iconic Palladian house, a lake flanked by mature, rare trees and plenty of picnic spots. We think this is best enjoyed on a crisp autumn afternoon, when the hues of orange and russet reflect on the surface on the lake – and of course – is followed by a beer back at the Bell & Crown.
Longleat Safari Park is just a short drive away, where elephants and tigers roam in the Wiltshire countryside. Longleat has so much to offer from a monkey safari to a historical tour of the rooms in the manor house. What better way to end an exciting day on safari than with a relaxing stay at the Bell & Crown in one of our newly refurbished bedrooms.
Medieval Salisbury is just a 40-minute drive from the pub with its Cathedral which boasts the tallest church spire in the United Kingdom measuring 123 metres, and Europe’s oldest clock dating back to the 1300s. Nearby you will find Stonehenge, one of the World’s most impressive prehistoric monuments. Spend a day going back in time, through the ages to discover the wonders that have brought us here today. Afterwards, come and unwind with a Pembroke Pie, next to the roaring fire.
