Nordic Walking with Ashley recommends
Sound Knowledge is a great little independent record shop in Marlborugh and Roger is always there to help you find what you need or give you recommendations on new music. They also feature new and up and coming bands and local artists and often have small gigs and signings. James Odell, McFly and Scouting for Girls to name a few names plus lots more new and exciting music.
The Swan recommends
The single reason we decided to stay put. Salisbury Plain is on our doorstep and we absolutely love it! We walk our dogs, Digger and Pickle, on the plains every day and love the peace and quiet it offers. You can walk for miles with no fences or gates and enjoy great open expanses of our countryside. From the pub car park, you can be on the plains in minutes and, if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to see parachutists from Netheravon airfield making their descent, the Hercules carriers practising at Upavon as well as deer. We can let you know of the best walks from the Pub. It’s gorgeous in the sunshine but there’s even a beauty in the rain!
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.
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.
Indigo Antiques & Interiors recommends
