Walking Holiday Cottages and B&Bs in Wiltshire
The British countryside is ideal for walking for pleasure. And keen walkers need look no further than the rural county of Wiltshire, which offers some of the most unspoilt countryside in England.
With around 8,200 paths criss-crossing the county – almost half of which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – Wiltshire really is a walker’s paradise. Whether you’re into challenging hikes or leisurely strolls, there’s a network of footpaths and bridleways for everyone. Some of the more well-known walking routes in the area include the White Horse Trail, the Wansdyke Path, the Wessex Ridgeway and Salisbury Plain walk.
A Farm Stay cottage or B&B can serve as the ideal base for your walking excursions in Wiltshire. Our self-catering cottages on working farms come fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including drying rooms for wet clothing and muddy boots. Or, if you fancy the idea of someone else cooking you a hearty breakfast to set you up for the day, you may wish to stay in a traditional farmhouse B&B.
Many of the walks will start right at your door – enabling you to get out and about into the glorious surroundings without having to use the car. What’s more, your host will have an intimate knowledge of the local area and will be happy to share their expert knowledge of hidden gems such as stunning viewpoints and rare wildlife habitats.
After all this walking you’ll be in need of a warming cup of tea or glass of something cold.
There’s certainly no shortage of places to find refreshments as Wiltshire is positively brimming with quaint tearooms and traditional country pubs.
