A Grade II listed Georgian building, the Dundas Arms is a charming inn with 7 bedrooms: 5 bordering the river in what was originally the stable block, and 2 larger bedrooms in the main house.  Each of the river rooms has its own private terrace overlooking the beautiful River Kennet, whilst the larger House Rooms, although lacking the tranquil private terraces found in the River Rooms, are larger, making them better for families.
