The Bath Arms in the village of Horningsham in Wiltshire has been sold by Longleat Enterprises and will now close for three months to undergo a refurbishment.
There are 15 bedrooms and careful consideration will be taken to the pub’s F&B offering.
The pub will reopen in April 2020.
Dan Brod, co-owner of Beckford. “We have always loved The Bath Arms and feel excited to now have the opportunity to be its next custodian. We will be working hard over the next few months to sensitively refurbish the buildings and will reopen in the Spring putting our sense of traditional hospitality at the heart of everything.”
Ceawlin Thynn, executive chairman of Longleat Enterprises – “we chose Beckford to be the next steward of The Bath Arms because we like their guest led approach. They will do justice to our locale and also provide great, convenient accommodation for Longleat visitors for many years to come.”
