The breathtaking beauty of Wiltshire has long made it a favourite for film and television shoots, with a whole host of UK films and TV shows set in the lush and idyllic area. While on-site, the crew will need somewhere to stay, rest, and be able to bring their best to work each day which means a comfortable hotel. Perhaps you want something boutique or luxurious, with a spa and restaurant. Maybe a comfortable bed, soft sheets and a strong shower is the ticket. Or perhaps it’s finding a dog-friendly hotel to bring your fur baby along for the trip. We’ve added some of our favourites that cover all the bases to help you choose your next “on-location” hotel accommodation in Wiltshire that’s in easy distance from London.
