Discover a county that's packed with history

With ancient monoliths, prehistoric settlements and top-class museums and galleries, it's no wonder that so many people are choosing a high-quality retirement property in Wiltshire.

You can visit the world-famous standing stones at the 5,000-year-old Stonehenge, see the tallest church spire in the UK at Salisbury Cathedral, or admire the unique, six-sided design of the 14th-century Wardour Castle.

You'll find railways engines and rolling stock at the Swindon Steam Railway Museum, local history, art and archaeology at the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes, and a large collection of jet planes and aerospace paraphernalia at the Old Sarum Airfield, near Salisbury.

Retire to a part of England that's surrounded by natural beauty

From formal gardens and scenic parks to expansive lakes and intriguing wildlife, there's plenty of magnificent countryside to admire around Wiltshire.

You can explore more than 2,000 acres of woodland, chalk downs and a renowned landscaped garden at Stourhead House. Or wander through seven square miles of ancient oaks and wooded hills at Savernake Forest, or bring your family to the adventure playgrounds in the massive gardens of Bowood House.

You'll find rare birds at the Coate Water Country Park, miniature ponies, emus and alpacas at the Hope Nature Centre in Southwick, and over 50 different species of birds of prey at Forest Falconry in Landford.

Testimonial image

Because we purchased off-plan, we were lucky to choose the pick of the best plots, with stunning views over the communal gardens. I was most impressed with McCarthy and Stone’s flexibility and willingness to help. McCarthy and Stone were incredibly supportive, and made the whole process seem easy.
