Swimming as it should be. The rivers are really clear and historic – they played a major role in forming the valley
The Baking Chambers recommends
Sublime Georgian Kitchen Garden near Tisbury, the perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon, from afternoon tea, cocktails, superb Provencal Rose, to BBQ suppers.
This is a magical spot.
Marlborough Literature Festival recommends
The village of Avebury is the centre of some of the most important prehistoric monuments in Britain. You can walk around the impressive 4,000-year-old stone circle, the biggest in Europe, wonder at the mysterious Silbury Hill and then walk to the even older West Kennet long barrow. Stop for a pint in The Red Lion pub or buy a drink and sandwich in the local community shop.
The George and Dragon recommends
Talking a walk around the village of Lacock takes you back in time, if you didn’t bump into a tourist you could feel you have been transported back. There is a lovely café called King John’s Lodge, which is a must on a sunny day, sit outside and have afternoon tea in their quaint garden. There are cute shops set inside the old buildings, so great for browsing. The Abbey is set in beautiful grounds, it’s a National Trust property so if you are member, more reason to visit.
Clementine's Shop recommends
I have grown up near the Fonthill Lake and have always enjoyed talking a stroll around the lake. You can walk some of the way around the lake, with lovely views.
