Our traditional Wiltshire pub and hotel in the centre of historic market town Devizes, has 25 comfortable en suite rooms and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Bear Hotel has a long and fascinating history and is a true landmark in the town. It’s thought to date back to 1559 (if not earlier) and takes centre stage in the market square, which once teemed with coaches bearing guests to the inn.
Nearby you’ll find thrilling destinations and beautiful walks such as Caen hill locks (29 canal locks in 2 miles), Peppercombe Wood, Boxwood House & Gardens and Devizes Castle, which dates from the 11th century. You can also enjoy a browse around the many independent retailers on the doorstep, the weekly Thursday market or the annual Devizes food & drink festival in September/October.
The City of Bath is just 20 miles from Devizes (35 minutes drive), where you can explore this World Heritage site and largest city in the county of Somerset, known for and named after its Roman-built baths.
The National Trust village of Lacock is 9 miles away (18 min drive) which was used as a filming location for Pride & Prejudice, Cranford, Harry Potter film series, Fantastic Beasts and the Downton Abbey film.
Longleat Safari park and house is 20 miles away and Avebury village and stone circle 8.5 miles.
We’ve got cosy open fires in the colder months and a courtyard garden for spring and summer, making for the perfect pub getaway and we are of course just a stone’s throw from the Wadworth Brewery and Visitor Centre.
