Wiltshire has a lot to offer, which can make it tough to plan your itinerary while you're away. With so much to see and do, prioritising is important. The best way to get the most from your time in Wiltshire is to seek advice from the people who know the county best - the locals!
Staying at independent hotels in Wiltshire, guests can rely on superior levels of service. One of the most valuable aspects of this service is the pointers you'll be given by members of staff at your hotel. Ever wondered what kind of light Stonehenge looks best in, or what time Longleat's lions wake up from their afternoon nap? A short chat with the owners or staff members at your hotel can unlock all the answers.
One of Wiltshire's foremost attractions is its oodles of beautiful natural space. Many of the county's independent hotels make the most of this, working nature's bounty into their hotel grounds.
Bowood Hotel and Spa is set in stunning grounds so extensive that they even house their very own golf course. Stanton House Hotel features gardens so beautiful that they're popular with guests booking a wedding.
The Heart of Medieval Salisbury
The cathedral city of Salisbury is the jewel in Wiltshire's crown. In addition to the wealth of stunning period buildings, exquisite restaurants and historical attractions, the city is also home to some divine independent hotels and guest houses.
City Lodge places guests right in the centre of the action, allowing for an easy stroll to Salisbury Cathedral, as well as to the city's best bars and restaurants. There's also free WiFi throughout the hotel, which can really help with planning your itinerary. If you're impressed with Salisbury and the cathedral, consider adding Old Sarum to the list of things to see and do. The settlement pre-dates even the medieval city of Salisbury.
