In the west Berkshire village of East Garston, The Queen’s Arms offers elegant accommodation in the Lambourn Valley, an area known for its horse-racing heritage. Within 20-25 minutes’ drive of Newbury and Swindon, it provides free parking and WiFi and a classic British food menu.
Each room has a flat-screen TV, DVD player, seating area and tea and coffee facilities, and many have views of the paddocks. All have an en suite shower with a hairdryer and toiletries provided, and the suites and superior rooms feature a free-standing roll-top bath.
A full cooked breakfast is served each morning. The restaurant offers traditional British dining, a tempting range of desserts and an impressive list of European and New World wines.
The Queen’s Arms is 25 minutes’ drive from the pretty Wiltshire market town of Marlborough, just outside Savernake Forest. This inn is also close to the Oxfordshire border, with Didcot within 30 minutes and Oxford within 40 minutes’ drive.
