Salisbury is one of the premier locations in southern England, packed full of things to do and places to visit. Described by some as 'the city in the countryside', Salisbury is surrounded by a landscape so quintessentially English it's almost too good to be true. Take a moment to sit on the edge of the water-meadows and, with the impressive Cathedral rising up from these lush green fields in your sight, it's easy to understand why Salisbury was named as one of the world's Top 10 Cities to visit in 2015 by Lonely Planet. You will find timbered builings a-plenty, the classic, English Gothic Cathedral which is home to some of the best-preserved copies of the Magna Carta, a thriving market, museums and some of England's finest historic houses within the Cathedral Close.
For those appreciating a little culture, the city has a flourishing theatre the Salisbury Playhouse and hosts an annual international arts festival in May.
While Salisbury itself offers a wealth of visitor attractions, the surrounding area also boasts a huge range of sites to explore. Top of the 'not to be missed' list are prehistoric Stonehenge, stately homes and gardens such as Wilton House, Longleat and Stourhead and the unique landscape of the New Forest National Park.
"We had a wonderful stay in Thimble Cottage. There was everything you could possibly need, with a lovely garden and right near the town centre. Salisbury is a lovely quaint town with a wonderful cathedral. We could not complain about anything during our stay. Emmie, the owner, is very friendly and just lets you get on with your holiday."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-07-23
"Lovely stay - really appreciate how well equipped the cottage is - with lots of 'extras'. Lots to do in Salisbury and some great walks. Really good Italian Restaurant in market square (Leonardos) - excellent meal and good value."Mr & Mrs Rankin 2017-02-01
"Located only five minutes from the City shopping centre and 10 minutes from Salisbury Cathedral. Thimble Cottage has all the amenities to make it a home from home, washing facilities, WiFi, TV, nice large shower, comfortable bedroom and an especially nice rear garden. We have used Thimble twice and found everything clean and tidy, did not have time to read all the books!! The surrounding area is ideal for walking, especially the river walk from St Thomas's Church up to Stratford-sub-Castle/Old Sarum. New Forest is only a 30 minute drive away. Although the cottage has first class cooking facilities, Salisbury has plenty of restaurants and nice pubs. We have already booked two weeks accommodation for 2017 !!"Guests from Norway's review on TripAdvisor 2016-12-13
