Best Western have 5 hotels in Wiltshire
Best Western has five hotels in the resplendent county of Wiltshire. It is largely rural, dotted with historic towns and criss-crossed with county lanes. The county town is Trowbridge, situated on the River Biss, about twelve miles southeast of Bath. When you book a hotel in Wiltshire explore the stone circles and age-old earthworks of this ancient and mysterious landscape.
Town and city breaks in Wiltshire
Kick back in one of Salisbury’s fine old pubs after a day touring the huge ring fort of Old Sarum and the towering cathedral. If bargain hunting is more your thing, trace the route of Brunel’s Great Western Railway from the markets of Chippenham to the designer outlets of Swindon. But if you just fancy taking it easy, soak up the Georgian surroundings of elegant Bradford-on-Avon. Why not visit Amesbury from your Wiltshire hotel, perhaps after visiting Stone Henge, which is only two miles away. Royal Wootton Bassett, an ancient settlement founded in seventh-century Saxon England, is certainly worth a visit and has held weekly markets since the reign of Henry III. For a beautiful day out from your hotel in Wiltshire, have a drive along the country lanes stopping in some of the beautiful market towns. Apart from the aforementioned towns, some of the most popular include Swindon, Cricklade, Calne, Marlborough and Devizes.
Holidays in the Wiltshire countryside
Grab your walking boots and follow the hilltop ridgeways of the North Wessex Downs as you head off from your Wiltshire hotel along the White Horse Trail. Roam through the woods of Savernake Forest before stumbling across Merlin’s tomb in Marlborough, or grab a bun full of sizzling hog roast and head for the bandstand at Trowbridge’s Village Pump Festival. Foodie’s should follow the famous food trails and head to one of the charming Wiltshire farmers’ markets for fresh produce directly from the supplier and the surrounding land.
Attractions in Wiltshire
Stonehenge is right on your doorstep when you book a hotel in Wiltshire, but don’t miss the medieval village of Avebury – incredibly located inside a stone circle and a massive earthwork. Kids can run wild at Bowood House in its pirate-themed playground and sweeping lawns. In Malmesbury, visitors can admire the great abbey after a cream tea. The county also has some of the country’s finest vineyards and breweries, including the Wadsworth Brewery famed for its 6X beer.
