Trail highlights include:

  • Marvel at the wonder that is Stonehenge. Many say that a visit to our region is incomplete without it.
  • Explore the Avon Valley, taking in aqueducts, mills and an undulating landscape.
  • Walk paths of breath taking Wiltshire countryside. Settle down for a ploughman’s lunch with bread baked that morning, proper butter, Wiltshire ham and west country cheeses.
  • Be spoiled with traditional English fair in your personally selected accommodation.
  • Bath. It would be a travesty to visit the West Country and miss the city. At every corner you are treated to spectacular architecture and it really is a special place to happen upon having enjoyed the treats of the surrounding countryside.

About your accommodations

Where you stay is a key part of your Foot Trail & experience. One of the reasons guests choose Foot Trails is for our choice and quality of accommodation.

The country inns and country pubs where you stay are small, personal and friendly with excellent hospitality. Each one is in an English village with comfortable bedrooms and delicious local food and drinks to enjoy with dinner after your walk.

Alison, Foot Trails founder, chooses each inn personally. Centuries old, each building provides a relaxing and authentic setting in which you can kick off your boots and eat dinner at the end of an inspiring day on the trail.

During your Stonehenge & Bath trail you will stay at 2 hand-picked hotels that celebrate what the area is all about. One is a collection of Georgian town houses forming this elegant & modern hotel. A little grandeur is required when staying in Bath after all! The second is a 17th century former coaching inn, which sits in a pretty Wiltshire village. It once served horses, carriages and their drivers, bringing post from London to Exeter,
