Welcome to Wiltshire, a county occupied by ancient landmarks, rolling countryside, vibrant market towns and family-friendly activities; a place that holidaymakers can escape to when modern life becomes too hectic. While the wide, open spaces of Wiltshire beckon keen walkers, ramblers, birdwatchers and cyclists, its towns also have so much to offer. Trowbridge, Chippenham and Bradford-on-Avon are all located within the boundaries of this fine county and boast seasonal events, great shopping and stunning architecture. Our cottages with pools are peppered across Wiltshire, so be sure to take a look.
Wiltshire boasts two world heritage sites: the globally-renowned Stonehenge, and the Neolithic site at Avebury. Both sites are well worth a visit, though they may leave you questioning life, the universe and everything in between. Other famous sights and attractions dotted across the county include Longleat Safari Park, the Iron Age hill fort of Old Sarum, Wilton House, Lacock Abbey and Salisbury Cathedral. Indeed, the medieval city of Salisbury should be explored as it’s home to quaint independent shops, fantastic restaurants and beautiful architecture. You could say that it’s the perfect base from which to explore Wiltshire, and all that the county has to offer.
If stately homes and gardens are your cup of tea, then Wiltshire will delight and amaze you. The Stourhead estate is particularly captivating, while Lydiard Park, Mompesson House, Corsham Court and Philipps House won’t disappoint either. These houses, and museums such as the Salisbury Museum and Wiltshire Museum, tell an intriguing story of Wiltshire’s past. Also of note in this county is Royal Wootton Bassett, a town granted royal patronage in 2011. You may have heard its name during the coverage of numerous military funeral repatriations - the town has strong links to the armed forces. Take a moment for quiet contemplation at the Jubilee Lake, the Forever Stone and the Royal British Legion Remembrance Garden.
