£125k refurbishment sees iconic Wiltshire pub catapulted into 21st century with boutique makeover


An extensive £125k renovation project at an iconic pub in Wiltshire has seen the property transformed into a modern chic business with 26 letting bedrooms.

The Lansdowne Strand in Calne was bought by Arkell’s Brewery in 2007 and has been undergoing an extensive refurbishment over the last 18 months under landlords Ann and Joel Lear, who were finally able to open its doors last week.

The Grade-II listed building, which was named in honour of the Third Marquis of Landsdowne, has now returned to its former glory, with a new menu design focusing on Calne’s heritage and history of pork curing.

Managing director George Arkell commented that he hopes the property can become the beating heart of the community.

He said: “We have taken so much pleasure in sensitively refurbishing the Lansdowne Strand Hotel to a very high standard of interiors alongside experienced landlords Anna and Joel.
