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.

    Ref: PTTN


    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 thatched detached cottage is peacefully situated at the end of a no through lane, in a small village midway between Devizes and Salisbury. The cottage is full of character, with beams, a large inglenook fireplace and cottage kitchen. The garden is a delight, with a patio area and steps up to another seating area overlooking the fields.

Devizes is a historic market town with a colourful medieval past. The town enjoys a rich heritage of fine Georgian houses and a 19th century castle built on the site of a Norman stronghold. Wadworth’s celebrated brewery remains in its original town location and their brewer’s dray drawn by mighty Shire Horses is a regular and much-loved sight on the streets. One of the UK’s most iconic canals, the Kennet & Avon Canal, passes through Devizes and the famous flight of 29 locks are easily accessible on foot. Salisbury is known as the city in the countryside, and named by Lonely Planet as one of the world’s top 10 cities to visit in 2015. With timbered buildings, an Early English Gothic Cathedral home to the famous Magna Carta, a thriving market, a buzzing arts scene, museums and some of England’s finest historic houses, there are many things waiting to be explored.

The Granary (ref W43949) is a spacious barn and has been restored, taking care to use many of the original features and characteristics of its original life as a granary – the beams, the grain bag pulley system and other unknown objects have been put to good use. Both The Coach House (ref 15661) and Hog Pits (ref 18961) are all on one level and have a cosy woodburner. They all have an enclosed garden with lovely views over the countryside.

There are many footpaths and cycle routes in the surrounding area, with the Wiltshire and Berkshire canal towpaths also nearby. Within a short drive are the picturesque villages of Lacock and Castle Combe, both favourite locations for TV and film directors. Lacock features in Harry Potter, Downton Abbey and Pride and Prejudice, and Castle Combe was the backdrop for War Horse. Chippenham is an old market town with good shopping facilities and Devizes is on the Kennet and Avon canal with the famous Caen locks. Bradford on Avon is often referred to as a ‘mini Bath’ with splendid Georgian architecture and a bustling community. The Roman spa city of Bath itself is a short drive and a must visit for a day out, with many famous sights to explore such as the museums, the abbey, Pulteney Bridge and the Roman baths to name but a few. Bowood House has magnificent gardens and adventure playground, and the famous ancient sites and stone circles at Stonehenge and Avebury are well worth a visit.
