The Bath Arms

The Bath Arms is a foodie pub in a stonkingly gorgeous location only a stone’s throw from Longleat – the perfect place to rest your weary head (and those of the Mudlets, of course) after a hard day of lion-spotting and rhino-racing at the Safari Park. But is it more than that – it’s also a lovely boutique retreat in the heart of the Wiltshire idyll, just the spot for those coming from further afield and looking for a posh pub with rooms in which to relax and unwind.
The 17 cosy and characterful rooms are sympathetically decorated and in keeping with the old listed building. However, just as us Muddy lot like it, some of the furniture was imported from India and the result is a quirky twist on your typical boutique country pub. The food is locally sourced and seasonal wherever possible – you can even hire their Shepherd Room for private dining for up to 80 guests.
Family friendly? Of course. They offer a Longleat Experience Package and an extensive kids’ menu. And don’t forget your canine companion – dogs are not only welcome here but the pub can organise comfy dog beds, bowls and treats to be placed in your room, plus there are some wonderful doggie walks right on the doorstep.
