Beacon Farm Barn is located in Oxenwood, Wiltshire, which is situated centrally between Marlborough, Hungerford and Andover. The nearest train station is Great Bedwyn, just half a mile from the Barn, with hourly trains from London Paddington via Newbury and Hungerford.
Marlborough is an attractive market town located at the junction of the A4 and A346 approximately 11 miles south of Swindon and 18 miles west of Newbury, next to Savernake Forest.
The small, historic market town of Hungerford is set in the midst of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the western fringe of Berkshire close to the M4. There are plenty of antique shops to explore and comfortable accommodation can be found at the 16th century John O'Gaunt Inn and 13th-century Bear Hotel. Hungerford has its own train station serving London.
Savernake Forest, lying between Marlborough and Hungerford, is privately-owned by the Earl of Cardigan and his family Trustees. It extends to some 4,500 acres and running through the middle of the Forest is Capability Brown's 'Grand Avenue'. This avenue of beech trees was laid out in the late 1790's, and at just over 4 miles long it stands in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest Avenue in Britain.
The site of Wulfhall, inspiration for the title of Wolf Hall, the Man Booker Prize-winning novel by English author Hilary Mantel is located at nearby Burbage.
