Great attractions like Longleat Safari Park, The Haynes Motor Museum and Stourhead house and gardens are perfect for a day out. Walkers can explore the Dorset countryside via nearby footpaths.
The Ship has five en-suite rooms to choose from and a hearty breakfast included is in the price; enjoy a traditional full English, vegetarian options or something lighter. Bedrooms are comfortable and modern in their design and above all, incredibly clean. Features include cosy beds, feather pillows and big duvets, free Wi-Fi, flat screen Freeview TVs and tea/coffee making facilities. Most rooms have stunning views of the surrounding countryside. For families with babies, a travel cot can be provided for any room.
On top of breakfast, this traditional pub also serves lunch (both during the week and on Sundays), evening meals and a great plat du jour. Dishes are prepared fresh and locally sourced produce are always used. Meat comes from two award-winning local butchers and fresh fish is delivered six days a week
