The
Experience

The Methuen has changed with the times. It started life as a 14th-century nunnery, turned into a coaching inn in 1608, then had a Georgian facelift in the late 1700s. In 2010 it was reborn as a chic boutique hotel – cosy and stylish with great food and delicious Butcombe ales. It sits on the edge of the village, with an avenue of trees around the corner that lead up to Corsham Court, an Elizabethan pile. As for the hotel, there’s a sun-trapping courtyard where you can eat in summer, a restaurant that opens onto the garden, a locals’ bar where the main currency is gossip, then a sitting-room bar where you can sink into an armchair in front of the wood-burner. It’s all very pretty, an easy style runs throughout. You’ll find shuttered windows, the odd beam, the daily papers, rugs on wood floors. Gorgeous bedrooms have warm colours, padded bedheads, good art, Roberts radios. There are robes in fine bathrooms, four of which have claw-foot baths, one of which is in the bedroom. Super food waits, perhaps cream of shallot soup, venison with heritage carrots, Wiltshire honey crème caramel. Bath is close.
