B&B Near Stonehenge?

Can anyone recommend a good B&B in the Stonehenge vicinity if that would allow for a good touring base for 4 nights in early Nov.? Active couple, no kids.
Price GBP 100 per night or little more if needed for a special place.
Better to rent a car in Bath or Salisbury?
Alternatively, recommend where to base for seeing Dorset and maybe Devon in addition to a Stonehenge visit for the wife.

Stayed in Bath at a B&B 2 weeks ago. The Paradise House - they have a web site www.paradise-house.co.uk
I don't usually like B&Bs but this one was wonderful. Great garden, big rooms with big baths (including two sinks) wonderful couple owns it. Great English breakfast. Ask for room with a bay window the view is incredible.I think the rate we paid was 115.
We had a car and drove to Stonehenge it took about one hour. While in Bath - try out the Bizarre Bath tour fun!

Just back from a trip to England. We stayed in Lyme Regis in Dorset for a couple nights at the Alexandra Hotel. It was lovely, and there's path through the private garden to the Promenade. You'll remember that it's where they filmed "The French Lieutenant's Woman."

Stonehenge is out in the middle of noplace, and is a one-hour event itself. So as others have mentioned, why not stay in a place with lots of B&B choices. Salisbury is closest, Bath has more to do and is within hailing distance of more interesting things (IMHO).

In Bath, we liked the Sydney Gardens Hotel, actually a B&B, which is just a few minutes' walk outside of town in a lovely park setting. Offers ensuite baths, huge breakfast, charming classic B&B decor, and onsite parking.

Hi, If you'd like to stay longer and extend your range, Fern Cottage in Monkton Farleigh is very nice and can be used as a base for daytrips from Lyme Regis to Exmoor to the southern end of the Cotswolds and including Stonehenge. Or, you might look up the b&b's in Bradford-on-Avon, a really lovely town and in the same central location -- just bigger. J.
