Hotels in Melksham

Set in rural Wiltshire, Melksham is a pretty market town situated on the banks of the Bristol Avon and is the perfect base for exploring the quaint villages and rolling hills of the Cotswolds.

Lastminute.com has some charming Melksham hotels for you to use as your base during your visit, including the lovely, wisteria-clad Conigre Hotel, a 400 year-old farmhouse on the outskirts of the town, and the King's Arms - an 18th-century building steeped in history where Dick Turpin and other notorious highwaymen are reported to have stayed.

History

Melksham was once part of a vast royal forest and was a favourite hunting ground of Tudor kings who enjoyed its lush and unspoilt countryside. The town appears in the Domesday Book and grew from its agriculture and the woollen cloth-making industry.

The beautiful historic town centre features St Michael and All Angel's Church, Canon Square and Church Walk – why not take a stroll around the town to orientate yourself on arrival?

There is plenty more history nearby in the villages of Lacock and Castle Combe - which has been called ‘the prettiest village in England' and where many films and television shows featuring typically old-world English villages have been filmed.

Walking

Melksham is a great place for some relaxing strolls around the countryside – there is a scenic walk along the River Avon, while the Conigre Mead Nature Reserve is a peaceful space packed full of wildlife including dragonflies, butterflies and kingfishers.

The Kennet and Avon Canal also runs through Melksham, offering great opportunities for restful bike rides on the flat or walks to the famous Devizes Caen Hill Locks to the east or Bath to the west.

Shopping

The friendly town centre is full of independent shops and has a regular Tuesday market. Compact and easily accessible, Melksham's library, gym, swimming pool, tourist information centre and parks are all in easy walking distance of the centre.

Eating and drinking

Melksham has a great choice of restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, from Italian to Indian to traditional pub grub. Try the delicious pizza or pasta at Casa, or a balti or vindaloo at the Refa Tandoori, which is one of the most popular restaurants in town. If you fancy a pie and a pint, head to one of the many local pubs, including the Golden Fleece, which is renowned for its Sunday lunches.
