The West Country region
The county of Wiltshire is known as "The gateway to the West Country". With much of the county designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the region is a perfect destination for a relaxing break at any time of the year. Admire the beauty of the gardens; walk the White Horse Trail to see the eight white horses carved into the hillsides; or take a leisurely wander through our market towns and pick up the real flavour of country life.
Wiltshire has some delightful old market towns including Malmesbury, Marlborough, Devizes and Bradford on Avon. There are hidden villages that are waiting to be discovered, perhaps an old country pub or two or the unexpected distant sighting of a White Horse carved into a chalk hillside. A visit to the region should also include a visit to the world heritage sites of Stonehenge and Avebury.
The historic and picturesque town of Bradford-on-Avon, with its delightful shops and restaurants, is wonderfully situated on the banks of the River Avon, an easy half hour's drive or a short rail journey from Bath. Within an hour's drive are stately homes, spectacular gardens, historic sites and impressive landscapes.
The major attraction of Bradford-on-Avon is its late 10th century Saxon church, which is surrounded by historic listed stone buildings including the Grade II listed Teddy Bear Cottage.
