Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Salisbury, Wiltshire, Your Home Away From Home

The self catering accommodation in Salisbury itself will come in the form of a well-furnished and equipped apartment, however, in the more rural parts of the county, you are more likely to find cosy cottages.

Wonderful clean, modern apartment with everything you need provided for. Fresh bedding and towels, hairdryer, a fully equipped kitchen, and a lovely touch of fresh croissants and coffee, milk, tea and biscuits left for us on arrival. TV with Netflix and free Wifi too. The owners were extremely accommodating, pleasant and helpful. It's a great base to visit the New Forest. I would highly recommend The Shire and would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you.
