Wessex Ridgeway Accommodation and Other Services
RambleFest displays details of Wessex Ridgeway accommodation, guidebooks and maps, camping, pubs, public transport and other services.
The Wessex Ridgeway is around 138 miles long and connects Marlborough in Wiltshire to Lyme Regis on the Dorset coast. At Avebury the path connects to the Ridgeway Path. These two paths, along with the Icknield Way and Peddars Way, form the Greater Ridgeway.
The Wessex Ridgeway passes through beautiful Wiltshire and Dorset countryside, and for most of the walk there is plenty of choice of lunchtime and evening stopping places.

Notes on Wessex Ridgeway Accommodation
As mentioned above, there is plenty of Wessex Ridgeway accommodation along the route. We have split these into Hotels & Inns and Bed & Breakfast. Guest Houses are included with Bed & Breakfast. While we realise many guest house accommodation is better than some hotels, in order to avoid confusion we have opted for the simpler option. We have used the term `inn’ in its proper meaning of a pub which provides accommodation rather than just a romantic term for a pub.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Wessex Ridgeway accommodation recommendations.
Wessex Ridgeway Restaurants and Pubs
We have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants along the Wessex Ridgeway, but restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. We have provided information, where known, of pubs serving real ale and/or food, and if they are listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. We would be grateful for any updates and additions to our pubs and restaurants lists.
Wessex Ridgeway Photographs Etc
We want to display as many photographs as possible of the Wessex 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.
