On the northern margins of the Salisbury Plain and not far to the south of the Cotswold Hills, The Golden Swan is a
Beautiful and welcoming Thatched Pub in a peaceful hamlet of Wilcot near Pewsey.
Set in a designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', the Pub is situated 6 miles south of Marlborough, 22 miles from the cathedral city of Salisbury and within easy reach of the Avebury Stone Circle,
Silbury Hill, West Kennet Long Barrow and Stonehenge. The Kennet and Avon Canal is close by and there is wonderful walking country on the chalk downs,
which form the dramatic North Escarpment of the Vale of Pewsey, just two miles from Wilcot.
Originally built in 1746, a Public House named 'The Swan' stood at the South Corner of Wilcot Green. It was then moved 'Brick by Brick' in 1859,
and resituated at the East Corner.
The now named 'The Golden Swan' is just 200 yards from the canal. The thatch is said to be the steepist in Wiltshire.
Here is some more information on Wilcot for anyone interested.
