The Sanctuary is a family-run B&B in Ogbourne St.George, near Marlborough, which consistently gets "excellent" and "very good" reviews from visitors, with praise for the quality of the breakfast, including the eggs from our own hens. Local produce is used whenever possible, either from the garden or local suppliers.
We have three spacious and flexible rooms available for our guests, with a good range of facilities. We provide relaxed and friendly accommodation within a family surrounding. Children and dogs are very welcome as well.
Covid-19 guidanceBased on the latest UK Government guidance (Roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions) we hope to be open from Step 3, "no earlier than 17 May". All bookings subject to revised guidance and "Step Dates". To minimise risk (e.g. from personal contact), we are requesting guests to pre-register and make payments by contactless methods (e.g. pre-pay online). A Registration Form will be sent to all guests who make a booking for them to complete and return before arrival. Breakfast can be ordered using single-use menus. To reassure all guests that we are prepared, please feel free to download our Risk Assessment and Cleaning Policy. Here's our Covid 5 Steps statement as well.

Please check availability and make an enquiry to confirm the room is still available. We will respond as soon as possible, but please be patient, we might be busy looking after guests that are already here! :-)

Ogbourne St.George is in a lovely location in the North Wessex Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Og River valley is between the Marlborough Downs and Aldbourne Downs, and equidistant from Aldbourne, Chisldeon and Marlborough. It's a favourite stop-over for people walking, cycling or running stages of the Ridgeway Trail which passes through on its way from Overton Hill near Marlborough to Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire.
You might be staying here to enjoy one of the many local activities available, or while you're exploring the rich and varied megalithic history of the area. Nearby are many ancient monuments; the most famous of them are Stonehenge, Avebury and Silbury Hill, (which is only 15 minutes away by car).
