Accommodation: The New Inn, Winterbourne Monkton

The New Inn - at Winterbourne Monkton is the third closest pub (after the Waggon and Horses at Beckhampton) to Avebury and is within walking distance of the stone circle. There is also a bus service to and from Avebury with the bus stop located close to the road leading to the hamlet of Winterbourne Monkton. The New Inn also offers B&B accommodation in one of its five bedrooms, though at around £50 for a single room and £60 for a double or twin room this is a little pricy when compared to some other B&Bs in the area, not to mention the Swindon Marriott (see below) whose rates, which often include a superb buffet breakfast, can be as low £42 per night for a twin or double bedroom.
