Steeped in history, Crockerton House offers luxury bed and breakfast in three supremely comfortable, elegant and tranquil bedrooms.
Originally built in 1669 as part of the Marquess of Bath's Longleat Estate, Crockerton House was sold out of the Estate in 1915 and has undergone many additions and transformations over its history. Set in one and a half acres of meticulously maintained gardens, Crockerton House is a wonderfully comfortable country house, nestled in a charming Wiltshire village, a mere ten minutes from the gates to the Longleat Estate.
- Choose from the three luxurious bedrooms on the first floor overlooking the gardens. Full of character, each room is decorated in a soft, tranquil colour with lovely bedlinens and goosedown duvets
- The Heytesbury Suite is wonderfully light and airy with large windows overlooking the front and rear gardens. With a private entrance, the suite comprises a super king size bed (twin on request) and ensuite bathroom
- The spacious Silk Room has wonderfully high ceilings and overlooks the back garden and lane leading down to the old mill. The suite comprises an ensuite bath and shower with super king-size bed (twin on request)
- The Officer's Room is an elegant room overlooking the front garden. With a king size bed, The Officer's Room enjoys an adjacent private bathroom with bath and walk-in shower, and separate lavatory
- After a fabulous night's sleep, take a leisurely breakfast in the elegant dining room, warmed in chillier times by a fire in the inglebook
- Enjoy a delicious breakfast with seasonal fresh fruit, organic cereals, homemade bread and jams and locally sourced eggs, bacon and sausages
