Other Activities:

Places to visit within the area include:

Bath - 75 minute drive

A wonderful day out for many with its array of attractions, including the Royal Crescent, Roman Baths, The Pump Room and Bath Abbey.

Highclere Castle - 50 minute drive away.

The home of Downton Abbey, this beautiful castle is open to the public at certain times of the year, please do check their web site for guided tour details.

Oxford - 60 minute drive away.

A wonderful place to explore. The university and its historical buildings were the inspiration behind Harry Potter's Great Hall, or take a trip on the sightseeing bus to take in all the city has to offer.

Salisbury Cathedral – 40 minutes drive away.

For over 750 years pilgrims have come to Salisbury to seek inspiration in the glory and peace of the building and surrounding Cathedral Close. Whether you come to worship, to marvel at or climb up to Britain's tallest spire, to be awed by the beauty and scale of the cathedral interior or to study the original Magna Carta in the Chapter House.

Stonehenge – 35 minutes drive away.

For an unforgettable family day out, visit the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge. Located near Salisbury in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside, it is a highlight of the South West.

The true meaning of this ancient, awe-inspiring creation has been lost in the mists of time. Was Stonehenge a temple for sun worship, a healing centre, a burial site or perhaps a huge calendar? How did our ancestors manage to carry the mighty stones from so far away and then, using only the most primitive of tools, build this amazing structure? Surrounded by mystery, Stonehenge never fails to impress.

Avebury – 30 minutes drive away.

World famous stone circle and on-site museum at the heart of a prehistoric landscape.

In the 1930s, the pretty village of Avebury, partially encompassed by the stone circle of this World Heritage Site, was witness to the excavations of archaeologist Alexander Keiller. Keiller opened the museum here to display his findings in 1938 in the old stable building of Avebury Manor where he lived.

In re-erecting many of the stones, Keiller uncovered the true wonder of one of the most important megalithic monuments in Europe. You can see his fascinating finds on display in the museum, still housed in the stables but now also in the 17th-century threshing barn, where interactive displays and activities for children bring the landscape to life.

Avebury Manor has just reopened following a major transformation for a new BBC series entitled The Manor Reborn.

Marlborough - a 15 minute drive away.

The market town of Marlborough, is well worth a visit and has a wealth of shops, restaurants and tearooms in it's High Street. Do make time for tea in Polly's Tea Rooms. Market days are Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The town is also host to the Jazz Festival taking place during July and the Mop fair taking place during October.

Kennet and Avon Canal – 1 mile away.

The Kennet and Avon is an impressive feat of engineering, made up of two river navigations and a linking stretch of canal. It runs from the Severn Estuary near Bristol to the River Thames at Reading, over 100 miles long with more than 100 locks, some magnificent engineering and crossing some of the most beautiful scenery in southern England. It was only reopened in 1990 after decades of dereliction.

National Cycleway Route – 1 Mile away.
