Tisbury is the friendliest village in Wiltshire, with excellent cafés, pubs and a good range of shops. Equidistant from Bath and Southampton, it lies midway between Salisbury and Shaftesbury, near A303 and A30, and is on the main Waterloo–Exeter train line. There is first-rate walking from the village, with gastro pubs within easy reach, plus a good range of local accommodation. Please ask for a list.
