The Beckford Arms: hotel of the week

We love pubs, we do. Especially ones with a chummy restaurant and bedrooms that you can sneak off to, post-pint. In this mood, we salute The Beckford Arms, an inn we’d love to call our local, and our latest hotel of the week.

Why this week? We love it when our hotels give us cheeky freebies, and the Beckford Arms is currently offering lucky Smith members a boutique hotel deal: two nights for the price of one.

Our favourite bits? Ecky thump, we love it all: open fires, local ales, cosy sofas galore, eight pretty rooms, sociable Sunday film nights and a gastropubby restaurant. We also applaud its indomitable spirit: a fire tore through the building in 2010, forcing the hotel to shut down, but it’s back now, and better than ever.

Mr & Mrs Smith say ‘How many inns roast a suckling pig by the bar, or host Sunday film nights, or turn out ravishing chocolate truffles with hazelnut and sea salt ice cream, or have lovely rooms upstairs where you can bed-down after sampling the Wiltshire-made bitters and ales? And not many pubs can claim such scenic surroundings for their own, or offer the wealth of outdoorsy activities and good, clean fun to be had here. Whether you’re seeking a rural family adventure, a Wiltshire-walking fest, or a cosy, coupley break from the big city, the Beckford Arms will make you feel like a regular. You might even end up becoming one.’

Weeks before first joining Mr & Mrs Smith's editorial team as assistant editor, Sarah Jappy was interviewing hot blondes in Copenhagen for a virginmedia.com city guide. Having penned food porn for Blue Tomato and fashion features at Itchy City Guides, Sarah was delighted to bring an appetite for alliteration and expert opinion on hot topics including: the marzipan to pastry ratio of the perfect almond croissant; which shop-bought hollandaise sauce generates the best eggs benedict and where to source the capital’s most drool-worthy moules marinière. That's not to even mention her 12 years of Irish dancing prowess. She has now moved Down Under to head up Smith's Melbourne editorial team.
