Host Information

Host review score

The Wheatsheaf was built somewhen in the 1800's,a building with plenty of history and lots of character. Situated on the A36 with a lovely riverside garden. We have 3 double rooms and one family room, all with en suites.
We took over the buisness in September 2015 and have since been renovating and renewing the premises to acheive its true potential.
We are situated on the edge of Wilton a quintessential market town and the ancient capital of wessex, right next door to wilton shopping village and the home of the famous Wilton Carpets. 15 minutes drive from salisbury city center, bus stops near by and a short walk into wilton town market square.
