Activities/Attractions: Known as "The gateway to the West Country", Wiltshire is a beautiful county of great diversity. Covering an area of almost 3,500 sq km it unites the districts of Kennet, West Wiltshire, North Wiltshire, Salisbury and South Wiltshire and the Borough of Swindon. With a population of nearly 430,000 and with much of the county designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Wiltshire is the perfect destination for a relaxing break at any time of the year.
There are few places in the world that can equal Wiltshire's sensation of mystical forces and unseen timeless energies. Stonehenge needs no introduction and is known the world over as an ancient monument of huge significance. Avebury's enchanting stone circles lie in the epicentre of Wiltshire's mystical landscape, with Europe's largest man-made prehistoric mound, Silbury Hill, and Britain's largest burial chamber, the West Kennet Long Barrow, close by. In the summer months, crop circles also adorn the fields surrounding this enigmatic area.
The village of Shrewton boasts many pretty houses, 3 pubs which provide good food, a post office, garage and a couple of shops, all within walking distance. Maddington House is an ideal base for sightseeing. Stonehenge is less than 5 minutes away, while the historic cathedral city of Salisbury is within 15 minutes drive.
Salisbury has been a favourite destination with visitors for the past 800 years or more. With first class visitor attractions, theatres, events, shopping, eating and drinking itís no wonder that last year Salisbury was voted, by Observer readers, in the top ten of the best British tourist destinations!
Wilton, Longleat, Broadlands, Winchester, Devizes, Avebury and the New Forest are close by, as are numerous National Trust properties, country gardens and other attractions. Bath, Oxford, Portsmouth and Windsor are all within about an hour's drive.
