Things to do in Wiltshire
If you’ve got good weather, spend a day at Stourhead. The estate is huge and was originally designed as a rebellion against the formal gardens of the 17th century. Because of this, there are lots of surprises and kids will love daydreaming about the magical grottos and the pantheon. Our Warminster Hotel is 11.8 miles away. For something different, take a trip down Wiltshire’s canals. Head to Devizes, a pretty market town where there are museums, shops and cafes as well as boat trips to explore rural Wiltshire from the water. From here, our Devizes Hotel is a 20-minute walk along the canal.
