Holidaymakers I met once in Turks & Caicos told me I was setting my bar very high and that no other Caribbean Island was as beautiful as Turks&Caicos.

Wiltshire is a destination county. With parts in both the Cotswolds and the West Country, it has a unique feel: bucolic, elegant and largely unspoilt. It is home to Britain’s most important ancient historic monument, some of England’s prettiest villages and the grandest of stately homes. An obvious number one, Stonehenge simply cannot be missed. This iconic, mysterious and spiritual Stone Age site looms dramatically and unforgettably out of the Wiltshire countryside. Sadly, the days of being able to touch the enchanting ring of standing stones are gone, but the
