Digger & Mojo recommends
A fantastic walk at any time of year. Park and cross the road and walk up to the White Horse – check out its spindly legs – the 19c workers refused to dig a wider outline after the architect in charge ran off with their wages…! Children are always fascinated by the sheer scale of something so familiar they’ve seen from the car. The Pewsey Vale and beyond spreads before you; at 295m above sea level, you’re at Wiltshire’s highest point. Over the seasons you may spot rare wild flowers, paraponters and corn circles. Blow away the cobwebs or walk off your Sunday Lunch.
White Mulberry recommends
Picnics in the summer, walks in the autumn, bluebells in the spring, Savernake Forest is on our doorstep and we love exploring with our young family, particularly making up scavenger hunts.
Take away, delivery (within 4 miles) or eat in. Totally delicious – The Zaika Inn. Small restaurant, so worth booking to eat in.
The George and Dragon recommends
Love going here for full English with a nice cup of tea, overlooking the fields and hills beyond. It sets me up for the day. It’s a working farm, so you’ll see all the animals, including alpacas. They have great outside area too. The café is airy and full of light so even on a rainy day, it feels cosy and warm.
Buckerfields Barn & Sonia's Plants recommends
Marvel at the ingenuity and industry of the people who placed the massive stones, touch them and feel antiquity.
