Experience rural England on a visit to Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Explore the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the south west of Wiltshire. This rich landscape offers stunning views, enjoyable walking routes and cycling paths, nature spotting at Langford Lakes Nature Reserve and high-adrenaline activities including Stonehenge All Terrain Vehicles and hot air ballooning.
Discover the pretty valleys and thatched cottages, local traditions and cosy pubs and make a stay of it in one of the farmhouse B&Bs or self-catering cottages. Make a visit to the National Trust gardens at Stourhead (as seen in the film production of Pride & Prejudice), spot peacocks wandering around The Larmer Tree gardens and learn about the area’s bloodthirsty past on a trip to the ruins of Old Wardour Castle.
