Voted the prettiest village in England.

An idyllic Cotswold village nestling in a wooded valley.

This has been a movie and historical drama film location for; Stardust, Warhorse & Poirot as well as the original Dr Dolittle.

Time to wander around the cobbled streets and take in the view from the medieval market cross.

Relax by the stream in front of the picture postcard weaver’s cottages.

Discover the medieval clock in St Andrews church and the 13th Century tomb of Sir Walter de Dunstanville.

Lacock National Trust Village

Lacock is an unspoilt  National Trust village on the edge of the Cotswolds and appears as if trapped in time

There has been no major construction here for the last 200 years

Most buildings date from the 13th to 18th centuries

It has featured in many period films and dramas including; Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice and Larkrise to Candleford to name a few including Downton Abbe

The Abbey has featured in Wolfe Hall and Harry Potter

Enjoy your leisurely guided walk around this village or feel free to explore on your own

Avebury Stone Circles

This stone circle is 16 times larger  than Stonehenge & 1000 years older

You can walk freely  in and amongst the magnificent  stones

It has a magical charm as it is not commercialised

Try your hand at dowsing here

Pretty thatched cottages have grown up around the stones including a 17th century  thatched pub

Enjoy a guided walk amongst the stones or feel free to explore on your own

Silbury Hill

This is the largest man made object in prehistoric Europe

It was built 4800 years ago and took longer to build than Stonehenge

Its purpose is still one of the great unsolved mysteries although theory and speculation abound!

Cherhill White Horse

Cherhill white horse is nearly 300 years old

This beautiful  white horse at Cherhill is one of 13 in Wiltshire

Carved out of the chalk hills they appear dramatic against the rich green landscape

They are best viewed and most photogenic when seen from a short distance
