The hamlet of Edington is a short distance from Westbury and tucked in beneath the northern escarpment of Salisbury Plain. It is an historically renowned village mentioned in the Domesday book and famous for being the location of the Battle of Edington in 878 AD between King Alfred and the Danes.
Westbury is situated at the western edge of Wiltshire beside the chalk downlands that form Salisbury Plain. The variety of the surrounding countryside - from the Downs to the broad vale of the White Horse - make it a delight for walking, riding and cycling. Westbury is exceptionally well positioned for all UK major road and railway connections, with the mainline railway station offering links to London, Wales and the whole of the South West of England (London Paddington circa 90 minutes). The most famous landmark of the area is the impressive Westbury White Horse which is the oldest and largest in Wiltshire.
There are a good range of supermarkets and independent shops, cinemas, libraries and other amenities in either Devizes or Trowbridge, both around fifteen minutes away. The area has first class schooling nearby including Warminster, Daunstey's and St Mary's and St Margaret's, Calne.
Edington itself contains a superb 14th Century Priory Church, home to the renowned Edington Festival, and the highly regarded Three Daggers gastro pub with its own micro brewery and farm shop.
From the Market Place in Devizes head out of town towards Salisbury on the A360. Drive down through the village of Potterne and, after around 4.5 miles, turn right signposted towards Great Cheverell. Continue up through the village to the crossroads at the top and turn right here onto the B3098. Follow the road through Erlestoke and on to Edington. After circa 9 miles turn right onto Lower Road where The Manor House will be found on the left hand side after the second grass triangle, just beyond the black and white half timbered house on the left.
