Looking for a country cottage or holiday apartment for a break near Devizes?
Wiltshire in the south of England is a fascinating county to visit. Many tourists go to visit Stonehenge, that mysterious stone monument that is aligned with the midwinter and midsummer sunrise. Equally strange is the Westbury White Horse a giant chalk carving in the hillside that dates back from the late 17th Century, about which all kinds of fertility superstitions abound. Apart from numerous pretty villages like Ansty with village duck pond and Maypole, Hindon, Horningsham, Sherrington, Stockton with thatched and half timbered houses, there are several historic houses and gardens, museums, country parks and nature reserves.
Holiday accommodation in or near Devizes provides somewhere to stay within easy reach of amenities and yet not far from most of the Wiltshire attractions that holidaymakers hope to visit. The sequence of locks called the 'Stairway to Heaven' in Devizes is shown on the right.
