Cottages to rent for self-catering breaks in Amesbury, Wiltshire, England

Book a holiday cottage in Amesbury, a small but stylish Wiltshire town and you will be just two miles away from Stonehenge. Here you can walk in the footsteps of prehistoric man in an atmosphere seeped in magic and mystery…this is iconic Stonehenge. Dating back over 5000 years and taking almost 1500 years to assemble, these stones were carried 140 miles to this exact spot using only basic tools and without the use of pulleys and hydraulic equipment. The Visitor Centre gives an account of how and why these stones were erected but historians have never found any written documentation to substantiate the many theories which surround the reason for these stones. This makes Stonehenge even more mysterious and intriguing. Children love the exhibitions especially the reconstructed face of a Neolithic man who was buried just 1.5 miles from Stonehenge, 5,500 years ago. There are also a further 250 Stone-age artefacts presented in lighted displays which show just how basic life was back then.


Hints and Tips on Cottage Holidays in Amesbury

Stonehenge near Amesbury

A fun challenge during your Amesbury self-catering break

If you fancy a challenge of your own during your holiday, why not visit the Stonehenge Miniature Golf Centre. It is said that every shot is capable of a hole in one! This is not crazy golf this is a game of skill and judgement where a good eye and good hand co-ordination will ‘put’ you in good stead. Clubs and balls are included and you can choose from a 3, 9 or 16 holed course. If the kids like it, this could be the start of something big!

Woodhenge is certainly worth rounding off a visit to Amesbury. Here, the emphasis is on low ley promotion but high key interest. Situated to the east of Stonehenge, you will find six concrete bollards positioned exactly as they would have stood 3000 years ago. As you walk along the footpath leading to Woodhenge, you can see Stonehenge staring back at you in the distance, this adds to that feeling of mystery and spirituality. A perfect place for a lovely walk with the kids, the dog can come too plus it is free of charge! Cast your eyes across that beautiful landscape and you will see just how amazing the world would have looked all those epochs ago. If you loved Stonehenge and you want to see more ancient history, Woodhenge will keep you fulfilled, mystified and sustained.
