The Sanctuary at Dorwyn Manor

Begun in about 3000 BC, The Sanctuary was originally a complex circular arrangement of timber posts,
which were later replaced by stones. These components have now long since been replaced by concrete slabs and although its function still remains a mystery, it possibly enshrined the dwelling place of some revered person, and certainly huge numbers of human bones were found here, suggesting elaborate death rites and ceremonies.

Later, West Kennet Avenue was constructed to connect it with then newly-built Avebury, reinforcing the status of this enigmatic but clearly very important site.

The Sanctuary room at Dorwyn Manor is en-suite with a comfortable King Size bed and a single bed. Although Avebury’s pre-historic stones are walking distance away, in your room you have the modern luxuries of a flat screen TV and tea/coffee making facilities.
