Sticks & Stones recommends
On our days off (rare, but it does happen) Garp and I love walking, our favourite places are West Woods for the bluebells, Kennet and Avon canal to see the boats or kite flying on Woodborough Hill.
Indigo Antiques & Interiors recommends
Avebury is an extraordinary place. A beautiful village, run by the National Trust, inside a neolithic stone circle. Unlike Stonehenge the stones are accessible to the public all year round. Avebury also has an interesting 16th century Manor house the renovation of which was featured on the BBC in a programme called The Manor Reborn. The people who work there are very well informed and encourage you to open all the drawers and doors and try on the various period costumes supplied, it's a lot of fun. The well-tended walled garden is also a delight.
Balmain & Balmain recommends
A great place to walk to or just for a visit. Wonderful place for tea or an ice cream in the summer and, if you are really lucky, some weekends they are put to work pumping the water back up the canal.
The Baking Chambers recommends
A gem, filled with secret knocks and crannies, largest independently owned forest in England. part managed, more and more part wild, Perfect place for walks and picnics, bliss.
