The Pear Tree at Purton


Originally the Saxon village vicarage, this Cotswold stone hotel is set in seven acres on the outskirts of Purton village between the Cotswolds and the Marlborough Downs. The Vicarage has been extended and between the two halves is a spectacular galleried hall and landing.

Dedication to good service has made this a very successful hotel. Proprietor Anne Young has now been joined by daughter Alix and son-in-law Tim. They and their staff succeed in putting guests immediately at their ease.

The hotel lies within its own extensive grounds which include the giant chess set, herbaceous borders, wild flower meadow, wetlands and very own vineyard; wonderful setting for all ages to enjoy. Although relaxingly quiet, the hotel is just five miles from the M4 and Swindon, with its Railway Museum and Designer Shopping Outlet. The south Cotswolds, Longleat, Bath, Blenheim and Stonehenge are all nearby.

The 17 bedrooms are divided into Executive, with spa baths, and Standard or Vicarage. All are furnished to a high standard and offer a host of luxury amenities.

Dining is in the spacious AA two rosette Conservatory Restaurant, overlooking the gardens and very own vineyard, which produces the praised English wine Cuvee Alix. The restaurant specialises in modern English cuisine using the freshest local ingredients. Stylish function rooms make the Pear Tree a venue suitable for many occasions.

Full breakfast available.
