Grown-ups can walk this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty right from the door. Get your clubs out and head to Rushmore Golf Club, High Post or Salisbury and South Wiltshire. Or get pampered at Bishopstrow Spa’s Halcyon Spa, for tranquillity body massages and hydration facials for men.
Go Ape on the high ropes at Moors Valley. Ride the go karts ten minutes away at Coombe Bissett. Climb Britain’s tallest spire and study the original Magna Carta at Salisbury Cathedral. See the Neolithic standing stones at Avebury, or of course Stonehenge. Or admire the Palladian mansion at Stourhead.
Get your boots on and follow the Ridgeway National Trail. Take a sunrise or sunset champagne balloon flight over Somerset. Or see Somerset, Wiltshire and the Cotswolds from behind the wheel of a Daimler Sovereign or open-top Triumph Stag from Vintage Classics.
Visit Wadworth Brewery to sample local ales, and see brewing memorabilia and a unique collection of hand-painted pub signs. See Wiltshire military history at the Rifles Museum. Check out the chalk-horse depictions on the hillsides. And see stately homes at Bowood House and Abbey House.
Stay on site and kick off your evening with a delightful dinner. Call up Sarah from Indulge Catering and Events for canapés, starters and main courses that include crispy chicken with white truffle and porcini sauce and lamb rump with pistachio crumb. Stay casual or dress up in your finest; we can wait on you hand and foot.
Head to the games room to spark up a little competition. Play some table tennis, table football or American pool, or just keep your fitness up on the exercise bike. Need to take it easier? The movie room is ready and waiting, with its 65” surround-sound TV, squishy sofas, Netflix and DVDs. Just add popcorn.
There’s no closing time on the swimming pool and it’s heated to a toasty 28 degrees from April to October. So dive in for a midnight dip. Then retire for a nightcap to the conservatory or elegant drawing room. Wrap up the day with fresh goodies from our welcome hamper.
Need to be pampered? Let the mobile beauty, holistic and massage therapists from Serenity Pamper Parties come to you. Call The Murder Mystery Company for a dinner event with a murderous twist. Or just fire up the barbie and stare at the sunset with a steak and a Shiraz.
