Wiltshire

Wiltshire, a place where history comes alive through its many iconic landmarks and attractions, as rich countryside meets bustling market towns; it''s the perfect place to escape to.

Whether you want to admire Wiltshire’s natural beauty or the plethora of attractions on offer, you certainly won''t be disappointed when you holiday here.

Few places can rival the ancient monuments and ceremonial landscapes of Wiltshire, and as well as the World Heritage Sites of Stonehenge and Avebury, Salisbury Cathedral with its soaring spire is another must-see that attracts many international visitors.

Make the time to visit Longleat Safari and Adventure Park. Walk through meerkat enclosures, hand feed giraffes and mind out for the zebras crossing; this drive-through safari adventure is family fun at its very best!

Spend an afternoon at the Stourhead Estate for world-class gardens and amazing views from the 205 step climb up King Alfred''s Tower. From castle ruins and Roman mosaics to white horses, hill forts and henges, Wiltshire''s got enough to keep your imagination going for even the longest break, but if you''re only staying a few days, then make sure you take a trip to the STEAM museum for a fascinating, yet fun look at the amazing story of the Great Western Railway.

You''ll find beautiful Wiltshire holiday cottages located near enchanting market towns and villages, all offering a unique view of the rural landscape that surrounds them. Browse local markets and shops, and stroll around hamlets such as Castle Combe, Lacock and Westbury.

If you want to get out and discover the great outdoors, from gentle family strolls to hillside hikes, Wiltshire more than caters for outdoor enthusiasts whatever their taste or ability. There are plenty of opportunities to explore the quintessentially English countryside on horseback, bike, foot or by car.

Easy to explore, yet off the beaten track, Wiltshire is one of the country''s best kept secrets. But don''t just take our word for it, take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Wiltshire today and discover your own tales of this beautiful area.

    Hidden from view behind a high wall, this unique, detached, period holiday cottage was once part of Heytesbury House. The poet Siegfried Sassoon spent the latter part of his life at Heytesbury House, which he purchased in 1933, and his son George Sassoon grew up there and inherited the house. By 1939, there were sixteen new residents at Heytesbury, evacuees sent for safety at the beginning of the Second World War. In 1942, the evacuees left Heytesbury and were replaced by American troops in November. By the middle of 1944, there were twenty five American troops sleeping in the house and another thousand camped in the grounds. On the edge of the village, step through the gate and into the idyllic walled orchard garden in which the cottage is situated. The house is full of character and charm, with slate floors, beams, a fireplace with original lantern-style chimney, and the quirky criss-cross beams in the bedroom through which one accesses the second bedroom. The bathroom has a roll-top bath with a beautiful view of the garden. Heytesbury is a quiet village on the River Wylye and on the edge of Salisbury Plain. It is a beautiful walking area and within half an hour’s drive of Avebury, Bath, Salisbury, Stonehenge, Stourhead and Westbury White Horse, and only a 10-minute drive from Longleat. The Wylye Valley is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    This first and second floor apartment is housed in a building dating back to the 18th century, and is above a jeweller’s shop, right in the heart of the high street in Marlborough. The large windows at the front of the apartment are a wonderful viewing point for the comings and goings in the town. To the rear, a door from the kitchen leads out onto a private, secluded and fully enclosed courtyard patio, a delightful and peaceful place to sit and relax in. An extra benefit is a free private allocated parking space just behind the property. The apartment has been lovingly renovated and features dramatic chandeliers in the hall and on the landing, in keeping with the period of the property.
    Marlborough is an old English market town with a unique broad high street which is partly arcaded, and hosts a diverse range of small independent shops, bookshops, antique emporiums and eateries. The town straddles the former stagecoach route from London to Bath, and lies alongside the River Kennet.
    The high street is lined with 16th to early 19th-century houses and old coaching inns, with a perpendicular church standing proudly at each end - St Mary’s, where a curfew bell still sounds each evening, and St Peter’s, with its impressive Norman doorway. Behind the high street lies a labyrinth of alleyways filled with half-timbered cottages, and on the north side are many interesting colonnades. Regular street markets are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The annual jazz festival takes place every July, and other cultural events and food fairs are ongoing throughout the year. In the oldest part of the town (to the west) is the famous Marlborough College, established in 1843. The college stands beside Castle Mound, where Stone Age and Roman remains have been found. Legend claims that Merlin (King Arthur’s wizard), is buried under the mound. The beautiful open spaces of the Marlborough Downs and Salisbury Plain are perfect for keen walkers and cyclists. Within an hour’s drive, visitors can reach the cities of Bath and Salisbury, the prehistoric stone circles at Stonehenge and Avebury, and to the north, the Cotswolds and Oxford. Shop, pub and restaurant 20 yards.
