About The Pear Tree at Purton

In the 16th century a vicarage was built next to the unique twin-towered church of St Mary's. It was partly constructed from a much older monastery, and some of the original stonework can still be seen.

In the early years of this century, the house was moved to its present location, just 400 yards away, and was later reborn as The Pear Tree at Purton, a handsome country house built of Cotswold stone. The Pear Tree at Purton is surrounded by the rolling hills of Wiltshire's famous Vale of the White Horse, and lies not far from the fabled source of the river Thames.

The peaceful atmosphere is enhanced by sunny conservatories, which house the hotel's restaurant, and by views over flower-filled gardens and green meadows from the bedroom windows. Each room is named after a character associated with the village.

Guests can tour The Cotswolds, visit Blenheim Palace and other historic homes or explore the city of Bath. The more energetic can walk over miles of pretty footpaths, or try their hand at croquet, golf and tennis, while those who prefer to take things gently can relax in the gardens, enjoying the scent of stocks, roses and thyme.

Dogs Welcome

The Pear Tree is delighted to welcome well-behaved dogs. The hotel is set in 7.5 acres, and there are walks of up to a mile from the back of the hotel through woods and over streams without crossing over any roads. By crossing one small country road, there are much longer walks for the fitter and keener dogs and owners. Dogs are provided with a bowl, welcome chews, and a large bottle of mineral water. We now supply a bath towel per dog, in case they find the lily pond or wetlands and go swimming.

Stone Circles at Avebury

The world famous, fascinating and prehistoric stone circles at Avebury are a World Heritage Site which were reopened following a major transformation for a new BBC series, The Manor Reborn. The circles can be explored via guided tours or at your own leisure. It is the largest stone circle in the world and the mystery still lies unsolved as to why this and Stone Henge were originally created. More information can be found on the National Trusts website.

Cotswolds Steam Railway Museums

In the heart of the former Swindon Railway works is the museum of the Great Western Railway. The building itself is a restored Grade II building and inside you can find out the story of the women and men who built and travelled on the railway. It is often referred to by historians and railway fans as 'God's Wonderful Railway.

Fantastic family day outs for the whole family can be had at Bowood House & Gardens.
