Bed and Breakfast near Stonehenge
Arguably one of the most iconic and best-known sites in the world, Stonehenge has been drawing visitors ever since those huge standing stones were first arranged in prehistoric times. Dewberry Cottage is just half an hour away, so we're an ideal choice for a bed and breakfast near Stonehenge when you come to visit.
Since the stones were first roped off in 1977 to prevent erosion from visitors touching and climbing on the stones, you are now only permitted to view the monument from a short distance away. However, English Heritage does allow access during the Summer and Winter solstices and Spring and Autumn Equinoxes, when thousands of visitors gather to celebrate, and it's also possible to book access to the Stone Circle outside of the usual opening hours if you wish.
You'll need to book your tickets in advance for a specific date and time to access the site, so it's worth planning ahead to make sure you'll be able to visit. There's plenty to see and do besides the famous Stone Circle, so it's well worth allowing yourself plenty of time to take it all in. The Stonehenge Exhibition reveals the history of the site, and explores the landscape, the people, and the meaning of the place. On display are hundreds of fascinating objects that have been discovered at the site, including human remains!
You can also take a wander through the Neolithic Houses, and discover how people lived 4,500 years ago. You can learn all about the traditional methods that were used to build these houses, and talk to knowledgeable volunteers who can show you ancient skills that were used in everyday domestic life.
Sound like your kind of thing? Why not come and visit us at Dewberry Cottage for a weekend stay, and enjoy the peaceful countryside near Stonehenge.
