Why Live In Wiltshire

Why Live In Wiltshire

South West

With an abundance of military activity by both the British Army and the RAF, you would think that the whole of Wiltshire may be considered blighted by our services. However, with the city of Salisbury, the world renowned Stonehenge and some of the prettiest villages in the UK makes Wiltshire a sought after area for property buyers.

The Vale of Pewsey and the old market town of Marlborough to the north of the County are particularly popular with buyers due to the rolling chalk downlands and good train links. Many families choose these parts to live in as the private schools of St. Mary’s in Calne and Marlborough College both have enviable reputations.

Mainline stations into London Paddington from Pewsey, Swindon and Chippenham are all under one and a half hours but are not considered to be the most suitable should you need access to the City of London. The M4 motorway runs through north Wiltshire and offers accessibility to London in less than 2 hours.
