DescriptionSouthdown is the home of Sue & Martyn Melvin and is a modern detached house set in a large garden in the hamlet of Roundway Village, a mile from the historic market town of Devizes. We are rated 4 stars with Visit Britain and hold both Walkers and Cyclists Welcome, along with Gold from Green Tourism. We are also holders of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust’s Green Tourism Award for 2012 and the Visit England and Visit Wiltshire Breakfast Awards.
A footpath running alongside the house leads to the Kennet & Avon Canal and the attractions and facilities of Devizes. A short walk in the other direction takes you up onto Roundway Down on the edge of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here you can find the Devizes Millennium White Horse (one of 8 horses cut into the Wiltshire Downs), the site of the Battle of Roundway (1643) and Oliver’s Castle hillfort.
