Salisbury

Within a 15 minute drive of The Moat Cottage is the northern perimeter of the New Forest National Park and a little over half an hour's drive, following the River Avon on its journey south, is Christchurch on the Dorset coast.

Visitor attractions in the surrounding area are numerous; there are houses and gardens of great beauty - Wilton House, Breamore, Heale House, Longleat, Stourhead - as well as Britain's most famous prehistoric monument, the World Heritage site of Stonehenge. A short drive or 15 minute walk along the tow path from Britford is medieval Salisbury with its magnificent 13th century cathedral and cathedral close, Charter market place and extensive range of shops, pubs, pavement café's and restaurants. The city also has a leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, theatre and arts centre. In May it hosts an international Arts Festival. Britford itself is fortunate in having a superb farm shop, just 100 yards from the cottage, where locally produced and sourced Wiltshire produce is available.
