Simply Bluebell recommends
29th of May each year - a village day celebrating our village's unique charter granting ancient rights in Grovely Woods. A 4am wake-up call, a ceremony at Salisbury Cathedral, hoisting an oak bough from the church tower, a procession and a fair, all in one day.
The Swan recommends
We love a walk in Savernake amongst its ancient woodland and majestic oak trees. There are plenty of marked paths and a real sense of history – do some reading up on it first and discover all kinds of adventure. We particularly love the area around St Katherine’s and the Grand Avenue, which was once used as an air strip and ammunition store in WW2. The bluebells are amazing in May and much quieter than other bluebell woods in Wiltshire. If you can, walk the forest at dawn or dusk when there’s a better chance of spotting the deer. If you’re really lucky, they’ll cross in front of you and the sunrise never fails to be spectacular.
Digger & Mojo recommends
Delicious take home Real Ales and Ciders from Pewsey’s own microbrewery. Wonderful heritage beers brewed on the premises three doors down from us at Salisbury Road Business Park. Yosh’s favourite is “Vale Ale” but he’s working his way through the range. Various sizes of casks and containers are available, depending on your consumption levels (!) they even have a personalised label service – personal labels for a special occasion can be produced for bottles and containers – your own party/wedding/birthday Brew….
Clementine's Shop recommends
Enjoy the beautiful garden at Pythouse Kitchen Garden Restaurant, while your children run around the paths and explore. You can enjoy lunch or tea either inside or out.
Well Natural recommends
In the heart of Salisbury, the market square is a space reserved for showcasing the best produce and entertainment that Salisbury has to offer. The ‘New Sarum’ charter was established in 1227 and every Tuesday and Saturday, the town holds a market in the square with a variety of goods on offer. There are often other markets and occasional live entertainment in the square too so always worth checking in at the tourist office behind the Guild Hall to check event dates. Then maybe pop in to see us at Well Natural for a coffee afterwards as we are situated along Queen Street facing into the square.
