Latest reviews | Events in Melksham | 10 Places to Stay

Melksham is a town on the River Avon in the north of Wiltshire, perfectly placed south of the Cotswolds and north of the Mendips. The impressive church of St Michaelís and All Angels dates back to Norman times, there is a Medieval sundial, once inside the windows and arches are a delight. A leisurely stroll along the river bank or a visit to the Nature Reserve will brighten anyoneís day, or perhaps step back in time at Great Chalfield Manor, which is a stunning Manor house dating back to the 15th Century, the grand windows and rooftop soldiers stir thoughts, set within beautiful grounds complete with a lily pond and well. Or for sporty visitors Christie Miller Sports Centre has Squash, Ten Pin Bowling, or there is always a round or two on the nine hole Golf Course. One of the most enchanting and captivating places that weaves itís magic to every visitor is the village of Lacock just a few miles away, artists pack your brushes as the quaint cottages and bridge not to mention the scenery will challenge the most determined as there is so much to capture. The National Trust now owns the whole village which will captivate all who gaze.
