Nordic Walking with Ashley recommends
On a mission to find the best flat white in Wiltshire you would do no better than the fabulous café at Honeystreet on the Kennet and Avon canal. Also serves really good food and amazing cakes they have a small café and also a really lovely garden on side of the canal. I have spend many an hour after a good walk up the Alton Barnes white horse enjoying a coffee in this fabulous litte gem!
Sticks & Stones recommends
It’s lovely for café owners to have a café they can go to and be looked after. A rare treat for Liis and I, but one that we love.
Take away, delivery (within 4 miles) or eat in. Totally delicious – The Zaika Inn. Small restaurant, so worth booking to eat in.
Meadow in my garden recommends
One of our favourite walks is near Oare. It's a beautiful circular walk that starts at the centre of the village and takes you on a half hour loop.
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.
