There are a multitude of local villages in southern Wiltshire which are a delight to wander around – and often contain a hospitable local pub! This is just a selection of a few of the local highlights, but there are many more just waiting to be discovered.


Teffont is one village but through history it has been two – Teffont Evias and Teffont Magna – the two lie close together in the lovely Nadder Valley and although adjacent have each had a completely different history both names are still used today. It is a very picturesque village which won the ‘Best kept small village in Wiltshire’ award in 1973, 1983, 1996 and 2013.
