Wonderful places to visit within easy reach of Little Langford
farmhouse is an ideal location from which to explore many of the
delightful towns, cities and attractions of Wiltshire and the South
and the West Country. Here is just a small selection of nearby
There are many places nearby that are worthy of a visit. We have 2
beautiful cathedral cities within easy reach.
Salisbury, just 7 miles away, home to the
tallest cathedral spire in the UK and one of the 4 remaining
copies of the
Magna Carta, a document dating from 1215 that established an
important constitutional principle, namely that the power of the
king could be limited by a written grant.
Bath, just an
easy drive away is a World Heritage site with beautiful countryside
surrounding it's unique mixture of architecture. From the famous
to the stunning
Royal Crescent and from the Theatre Royal (one of the oldest
working theatres in the country) to the wide range of shops and
museums there is something for everyone. One of the UK's finest
Wilton House is a few miles to the west of Salisbury. Built over
450 years ago, you will be able to experience living history at it's
very best, and the nearby
Wilton Shopping Village has something to offer every taste.
Heale House (Sting's neighbour) with it's beautiful gardens and
garden centre is also worth a visit. To see an outstanding example
of the English landscape style, why not visit
Stourhead. Laid out in 1741 around a central lake and classical
temples, the gardens compliment the 1720s mansion house, home to the
Hoare family, owners of Britain's only surviving independent bank.
No visit to the South of England should be contemplated without
allowing time to visit some of the oldest historical sites known to
man. The world famous ancient stone circle of
Stonehenge is just a stone's throw away, with the even older
stone circle of
Avebury, the ancient English burial sites at
Silbury Hill and West
Kennet Longbarrow just a short drive away.
The historic market town of
Marlborough lies a few more miles to the east and offers the
widest High Street of any town in the UK and is home to a marvellous
variety of speciality shops.
Also within easy reach is the
New Forest, although over 900 years old the New Forest offers a
wide variety of scenery, unchanged since mediaeval times and let's
Longleat, possibly the finest example of Elizabethan
architecture in England and home to a wonderful collection of Art,
the famous Safari Park and beautiful gardens.
