Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Marlborough

Marlborough is one of those names that is instantly recognisable in many countries, yet not many people know its origins are rooted in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. The market town dates back to at least 2,400BCE when farmers settled for the fertile soil and clear water of what is now the River Kennett. Marlborough’s friendly community regularly welcomes visitors who come to enjoy the intense beauty of the Wiltshire countryside together with its twice-weekly market and charming cottages to rent. Its proximity to places such as Salisbury and Bath make Marlborough a fantastic choice for holidaymakers who want to experience a deliciously authentic slice of Wiltshire life. Read more

Holidays in Marlborough

Is this where Merlin is buried? At first glance, Marlborough appears to be a typical rural market town. And, indeed, that is precisely what it is with a twice-weekly market and an excellent choice of shops and places to eat and drink. However, look into its past, and you will see the epicentre of William the Conqueror’s seat of power, the site of a fierce battle in the English Civil War followed by a tragic fire that wiped out around 250 buildings. The town is on the Roman road between Bath and London, and the Mildenhall Hoard was found just two miles from Marlborough. Possibly the most interesting claim is that Marlborough Mount, a Neolithic barrow, is the final resting place of the mythological Merlin, leading to some people calling it Merlin’s Mount or Merlin’s Barrow. Sceptics may disagree, but there is something undeniably magical about Marlborough.

Walking, Cycling and other Adventures - Wiltshire is a beautiful county with an excellent network of over 8,000 footpaths, bridleways and cycling routes that pass through breathtaking scenery to link pretty chocolate-box villages and vibrant towns. Half of Wiltshire is protected as a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) to help preserve its unique rural charm. A favourite walk is a six-mile route along the Marlborough Downs through the villages of Shaw, Oare and Huish. One of Wiltshire’s famous chalk figures, the Wiltshire White Horse, is a few miles away on Granham Hill near Preshute, with other horses in Westbury and Alton Barnes.

Cyclists will enjoy the variety of routes leading from Marlborough into the North Wessex Downs, some of which are more challenging than others. The Wiltshire Cycleway winds for 160 miles through the county, while those who prefer to ride off-road can use the Kennet and Avon Canal towpath which passes sites such as Caen Hill lock, Pewsey Wharf and Devizes.

Wiltshire is a favourite spot for gliding, paragliding, ballooning and sky diving, so there is ample choice to keep adrenaline junkies happy on holiday. Castle Combe racing circuit is within easy reach for a fun track day, or why not hire a vintage motor from Vintage Classics to explore in beautifully retro style. Visitors who enjoy more sedate pastimes can play golf, kayak, canoe and fish.

Attractions and Day Trips - Wiltshire’s sights and attractions cater for everyone. If you want history, then there is plenty, starting with one of the world’s most famous historic sites, Stonehenge. Salisbury is only ten miles from Marlborough, with a wealth of shops, pubs and cafes as well as its renowned cathedral where guided tours go right up into the tower to give sensational views of the town and the countryside. Other local attractions include Longleat (best seen over two days), Roves Farm, and the Studley Grange Butterfly World and Farm Park. There are stately homes and museums, and places like the National Trust village of Lacock.

Bath, with its Roman Baths, Georgian architecture and excellent shops, is about an hour’s drive from Marlborough, or spend time shopping in the designer outlet at Swindon before visiting the excellent Museum of the Great Western Railway. The Cotswolds are close by, and Blenheim Palace and the historic city of Oxford are both under an hour by car.

There are so many ways to relax and have fun in Marlborough to make it a brilliant holiday destination for all seasons.
