Troutbeck Guest House recommends
Just 20 minutes drive away from Troutbeck, Stonehenge is a World Heritage Site.
The Merchant's House recommends
Marlborough is a lovely place to visit and fortunately still has quite a few interesting independent shops selling a wide range of wares. Stroll down the High Street and venture into the alleys – there are plenty of coffee shops, pubs and restaurants to make a day of a trip to Marlborough.
The Baking Chambers recommends
This is a really good country pub, great service, excellent and consistently good food & wine lists, Wood Fired oven & Boules in the garden, recommend the walk around Fonthill Estate lake before or after.
JW Fine Foods recommends
I love the open space and variety. It’s not busy so you rarely bump into anyone else except maybe a military tank or two.
This is so worth the effort as you get a fantastic view of the whole valley and the horseshoe.
