Wiltshire is a landlocked county in South West England and it is characterised by high down lands and wide valleys. Salisbury Plain is famous as the home of Stonehenge and the Avebury stone circles. These ancient monuments are shrouded in mystery and even with today’s technology no one knows for sure why they were constructed. Wiltshire Holiday Cottages are available to rent all over the county so you can be out in the countryside or in a town or village.
Wiltshire has a good mixture of the rural and the urban. The area around Salisbury Plain is excellent for walking and cycling. Another good route for hikers is to visit the several white horses carved into the chalk hillsides of the county. A’Becketts Vineyard is an interesting place to visit and a guided tour will take around one and a half hours. Of course you get to sample the produce and possibly buy a few bottles to take back to the cottages for later. A perfect evening in the Wiltshire Holiday Cottages can be spent with a glass or two of wine. Salisbury Cathedral is also worth a visit and you can climb the tower which is two hundred and twenty feet high.
The views across Salisbury and the rest of the county are quite spectacular and you can also look up into the spire, which is the tallest in the UK. The stately home of Longleat will provide a full days entertainment with a tour of the Elizabethan mansion and a trip round the safari park. If you like shopping then a visit to Swindon is a must, with its designer outlets and bars and restaurants you can have an excellent day out here. Wiltshire holiday cottages are a great base from which to explore these wonderful places.
Wiltshire Holiday Cottages are excellent value for money and they can sleep between two and six people. They provide comfortable accommodation for a romantic break or for a family holiday. After a busy day out exploring you can return to the cottage and crack open a bottle of wine you bought at the vineyard earlier that day. Relax and unwind and make plans for what you will do tomorrow.
