Homes are more affordable in Wiltshire when compared with our neighbouring counties, which can be advantageous when it comes to saving money or having a higher standard of living.
Although Wiltshire is a rural county, it benefits from the proximity to major cities such as Bristol, Bath, and 55-minute train ride to London. These cities are within reasonable distance, providing access to a wider range of social activities and amenities. This allows you to enjoy the tranquillity of Wiltshire while still being able to access the cultural and economic benefits of larger urban areas.
