We enjoyed a short mid week break at the Swan Inn which facilitated a full day's visit to Salisbury city centre and also the famous Cathedral. My wife and I arrived at the Inn just as darkness had fallen and it was raining heavily. We received a very hospitable welcome on arrival and found that our room was very comfortable and warm.
We dined at the Swan and we were tired after a long trip from North Wales. Our meal was very well cooked and substantial. Everybody was so helpful and good advice made our visit to Salisbury the next day a great success. For this, we had been advised to use the "park and ride" facility at Wilton near Salisbury and this is exactly what we did.
Both ways the bus stopped right in the city centre and we therefore avoided the stress and engagement of meter maids and the high cost of car parks. Our visit to Salisbury was memorable and this was followed by a delicious evening meal at the Swan. Watch this space ror our report about Salisbury Cathedral as we followed in the steps of John Constable.
For us, the Swan Inn generated excellent vibes and we would certainly stay there again, perhaps for a longer period because there is so much to see in Salisbury and we missed Old Sarum.
Nothing was too much trouble for the family.
