Weekend Breaks in Wiltshire

1 March 2017

Wiltshire, so often bypassed by travellers thundering west on the M4 and A303 to Wales and the West Country, is a beautiful and fascinating county. Just two hours from London by car, it’s an ideal weekend or short break destination, with much to offer the visitor.

Book one of these fabulous country inns and be wowed by the food, the cosy rooms and their individual charm, then explore the sweeping chalk downlands, the meandering river valleys and the pretty thatched villages. Take time to visit Wilton House and Lacock Abbey and the wonderful grounds at Stourhead, or the timeless prehistoric sites of Stonehenge and Avebury. The Out & About sections for each inn detail what to see and do in the area.

Read on for your chance to win a complimentary over night stay at the fabulous Royal Oak, Swallowcliffe.
