Our recommendations for the perfect day out

Hidden in the heart of rural Wiltshire, yet easily accessible by road or rail, Howard’s House is the ideal place from which to visit many of England’s greatest monuments. Stonehenge and Old Sarum, Salisbury Cathedral and Wilton House are all within a 20 minute drive; the magnificent Stourhead Gardens, Longleat House and Bath only a little further.

Splendid walks abound and country pursuits such as riding, fishing and shooting can all be arranged… but if it’s a quieter life you yearn for then perhaps a game of croquet on the lawn or the chance to curl up in front of the log fire with a good book… all are possible at Howard’s House.
