Ridgeway accommodation

Please refer to the Ridgeway Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below) for places visited along the route. By clicking on any location, the Ordnance Survey map for that location can be opened and dragged (and re-sized) to follow the route of the path.

The Ridgeway is around 90 miles in length and connects Overton Hill near Avebury in Wiltshire to Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire. It is one of the most well-known of long-distance footpaths, and even to those who do not walk paths it conjures up romantic images of ancient trackways.

Notes on Ridgeway Accommodation

We have listed the accommodation for each location in our Ridgeway Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below). Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of Ridgeway accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info.
We display a wide range of accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all Ridgeway accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Ridgeway accommodation recommendations.

Ridgeway Restaurants and Pubs

East Ilsley

Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the Ridgeway, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. Please refer to the Ridgeway Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below).
Restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.

The Ridgeway Public Transport

Please refer to individual locations for transport facilities. Of special interest to those who would like to combine sections of the walk with other paths, there is a bus service which links all the locations from Liddington to Letcombe Regis.

The Ridgeway Photographs and Logs

We want to display as many photographs as possible of the Ridgeway, and there is always room for your photographs and walk logs – just email them to us. Alternatively, if you have them online you can send us the link.
