From family friendly hotels to luxury spa hotels Think of Wiltshire and you think of superb local food, beautiful countryside walks and historic sites such as Stonehenge or Lacock Abbey. The home of countless film sets including Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Downton Abbey and Wolf Hall. However, the home of Mr Darcy really knows how to do hospitality with its warm welcomes at country house hotels and pubs with rooms alike. Do your very best impression of Lady Mary at one, or roam wild and free in the grounds surrounding another, but either way you can guarantee a good deal of down time and excellent food to refuel at the end of the day. In this genteel part of the world, relaxation is a prerequisite. For example, Widbrook Grange is an opportunity to stay on an original Georgian model farm with beautiful grounds and gardens strewn with milk churns, a vintage tractor and a hay cart. For an extra touch of relaxation there is also a pool in the charming 11 metre swimming pool surrounded by big windows and accompanied by the availability of a collection of spa treatments. On the other hand, Whatley Manor is another favourite in the area, a luxurious hotel complete with an exceptional spa, it is surrounded by woodlands and wild flowers. Here relaxation takes on a whole new level of excellence - it has a Michelin Star restaurant, and its spa is a space tor set mind, body and soul, complete with an indoor/outdoor hydrotherapy pool and a thermal suite as well as a number of heated stone recliners. Wiltshire is also a favourite family holiday destination however for its easy transport links and welcoming nature. This is perhaps most beautifully illustrated at Woolley Grange. The manor house hotel is surrounded by beautiful grounds and offers books and games as well as a resident King Charles spaniel. In addition to children's high teas and family suppers, the experience is complete with an array of activities, not least of all a pool with a view of the walled garden - perfect for splashing around in while mum and dad have a spa treatment or two.
