Holiday Cottages in The Ridgeway
The Ridgeway is a long distance walking path which is located in a surprisingly remote part of southern central England, offering a unique glimpse into the ancient past of southern England.. The trail spans approximately 87 miles (139 kilometres) and offers stunning views of the English countryside: starting with the World Heritage Site of Avebury and follows a ridge of chalk hills in a northeasterly direction to reach Ivinghoe Beacon, northwest of London.
We offer a range of holiday cottages along the Ridgeway to suit all needs and budgets. Our luxury lodges near Benson offer fantastic holiday cottage accommodation for up to six and four guests separately, or holiday cottage accommodation for up to ten guests if booked together. Read more
