The Central Southern England region
Marlborough is the quintessential English market town. With a plethora of independent shops and boutiques, spend a leisurely day browsing interspersed with breaks in one of our many independent street cafes.
Marlborough College runs an excellent summer school during July and hosts many food and craft fairs throughout the year.
Local produce and fayre can be found at the street market every Wednesday and Saturday, there is an excellent delicatessen and award winning butchers. For easy self catering, 'Cook' in Marlborough sell ready made meals to heat ...as good as home cooking. Waitrose, Tesco and Morrisons all have stores in Marlborough
For those seeking a more eclectic purchase, a carboot sale on the common attracts increasing numbers of knowledgeable antique dealers one Sunday a month from March to October. Great for a barter.
Places to eat
Silks on the Downs, Ogbourne St Andrew
The Outside Chance, Manton ( just outside Marlborough)
Visit Avebury and Stonehenge
Historic Avebury with its mystical ring of stones dates back to around 2600 BC and can be reached by car in 10 minutes or across the Ridgeway on foot for the more hardy. Whilst there you can visit the National Trust owned Avebury Manor whose renovations were the focus of a television documentary in recent years.
Silbury Hill, the largest, and perhaps the most enigmatic, of all megalithic constructions in Europe is just 1500 meters from Avebury, and Stonehenge some 30 miles from Tresco House.
Hungerford is just 10 miles from Tresco House and offers a true feast for the vintage, retro and antique enthusiast.

Bath is a wonderful city with beautiful Georgian architecture and a fascinating history which makes it definitely worth a visit. It also has an array of boutique shops and award winning restaurants - making it the perfect place to explore for a day.

Both of these ancient Cities feature an array of beautiful streets and historic buildings, as well as a stunning Cathedral.
We are about 30 miles from Burford, considered the southern gateway to the Cotswolds.
