Whether you’re heading to Wiltshire for a relaxing break in the countryside with the whole family or escaping with your loved one, kate & tom’s have a range of luxury Wiltshire holiday cottages to choose from. Self-catered, dog friendly, country views, indoor pools – the choice is yours.
One of the most popular tourist attractions in Wiltshire is Stonehenge. The legendary monument is a must-see when you’re in the area, offering a magical glimpse into Neolithic life. Tick this wonder of the world off your bucket list, exploring the ancient landscape and Neolithic Houses. For another taste of Neolithic Britain, head to Silbury Hill, the largest artificial mound in Europe. The purpose and significance of this mysterious hill still remains unknown, with origins dating back to 2400 BC.
As well as having some of the most famous prehistoric monuments in Britain, Wiltshire is also home to more recent historic architecture. Visit Salisbury Cathedral, home to the Magna Carta, to discover the world’s oldest working clock, dating back to 1386. Film fanatics, you’re in luck. Wiltshire has featured heavily on the big screen over the years, with Lacock Abbey making frequent appearances. You may recognise the Abbey from Harry Potter, Wolf Hall, Pride and Prejudice and, most recently, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
Rather impressively, almost half of Wiltshire is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. So, you’ve got plenty of space to explore and unwind. The Wiltshire Cotswolds are filled with honey coloured stone villages, quaint boutique shops and pretty landscapes. Or, switch off from the real world and feel truly at peace in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wander the rolling grassland, explore quaint villages and take in the idyllic views.
As for keeping the kids entertained, Longleat is a must-visit for families of all sizes. The English stately home doubles as a safari park, featuring lions, tigers, monkeys and giraffes as just some of their free-roaming animals. After getting up close and personal with the impressive animals, head into the estate grounds for a trip to the past. Explore 900 acres of landscaped grounds, wander around the formal gardens and take a guided tour around the 16th-century home.
Escaping to the country with your closest friends? Perhaps you’re heading on a romantic break for two? Or maybe it’s time for your annual family party? No matter the reason for heading to Wiltshire, you’re sure to find yourself returning year after year. With so much to do for the whole family, one trip simply won’t be enough.
