The Carriage House stands at the entrance to Prince Hill House, an impressive grade ll listed mansion in the small village of Worton, 4 miles from the attractive market town of Devizes. The house provides an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions of this fascinating part of Wiltshire. The area is rich in prehistoric sites such as Avebury Stone Circle, Silbury Hill and Kennet Long Barrow and is also of interest for its industrial past – Crofton Beam Engines and a working windmill at Wilton. Narrow boat trips can be enjoyed on the nearby Kennet and Avon Canal and there is plenty of good walking on Salisbury Plain with immediate access onto a public footpath from the house.
The historic towns of Devizes, Bradford-on-Avon and Marlborough, well known for their antique shops, pubs and restaurants, are a short drive from Worton, while the Georgian city of Bath, a World Heritage site, the cathedral city of Salisbury and Stonehenge are within half an hour’s drive. Further afield, the Cotswolds and Oxford are within reach for a day’s excursion.
