What a joy it was to find this guest house. A lovely spacious house with beautiful gardens and splendid views in rural Wiltshire. We had the White room and I felt at home there straightaway. The whole property is gorgeous and everything about it suggests that the helpful hosts, Sue and Martyn, enjoy sharing their home with guests and looking...

Thank you for taking the time to review our B&B. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay in our White Room. It was lovely to meet you both and after having so many working guests rather than holidaymakers staying, it was nice to be able to help with suggestions for your days out. We hope all went well on your...

We stayed at the Southdown while in Devizes, we had the coffee room and it was fabulous, breakfast was amazing with all local products and even tomatoes from their own garden. Nothing was too much trouble for Sue and Martyn and we hope to be back again!

Cathy and I came to Wiltshire to walk the White Horse Trail. Sue & Martyn have great resources and advice for walkers, we ended our walk at the Southdown B&B, but really should have started it there. The breakfasts are superb!

We stayed here for only three nights, and wished it could have been longer. Sue and Martyn are the most welcoming hosts imaginable. Southdown is beautifully decorated, in an attractive rural setting, but is only a short drive from Devizes. (A warning though - there are long-term roadworks on the way in, with temporary traffic lights. At peak times you're...

This accommodation was booked for the Wiltshire 100 Cycle Sportive that starts and finishes in Devices. The B&B is located a short distance from the town, but surrounded by fields for as far as the eye can see. Even so, a short walk along rural paths delivers you into the town without breaking into a sweat. The accommodation comprises of...
