The Apartment is within a Listed Historic (18th century) Town House. The restoration of the house and the Apartment was the subject of a 15 part TV documentary which followed the owners, Peter and Sandy's, initial restoration of the house in 1999. Over the 14 years they have lived in the house they have continued the restoration work and more recently the house won Period Living Magazine's Town House of the year 2011.
The Apartment has over the last two months been totally up-dated and furnished with the same style and elegance as the main house.
There is an eclectic mix of antique and contemporary furniture throughout the Apartment which is elegant and very comfortable.
As the Apartment is on the top floor of the house, the large Sitting Room has great views out over the Market Square and roof tops of Wilton.
Both the bedrooms are a spacious and light and have large new double bed in one room and King/or twin beds in the master bedroom both with crisp white bed linen, cupboards for storage, bedside tables and so on.
The contemporary kitchen has also been updated, with a new oven, washing machine, plenty of shelving and storage etc. (A welcome hamper for guest staying a week or more - with fresh bread, butter, milk, and cheese is left in the Kitchen for guests on thier arrival).
There is a beautiful private walled garden with Swimming pool that the owners are happy to make available by separate arrangement (See photo's)
No 3 Kingsbury Square is a great place for couples to escape for a holiday. The area is so peaceful and the landscape is extremely beautiful, yet still close enough for easy access to all of the local amenities.
The rooms are spacious, the décor is tasteful and elegant and my wife and I found it to be very comfortable.
I would definitely stay with Sandy again when visiting this part of the world and would recommend it to anyone looking for a taste of real England outside London.
Sandy and Peter operate a Chartered Architect's Practice next to the property based in a converted church.

Three miles west of Salisbury,
right where the Wylye and
Nadder rivers meet, lies pretty
Wilton, an attractive market
town with a rich historical
heritage, one that stretches right back to the
8th century AD and the Anglo-Saxons. Wilton
was once the county town of Wiltshire, and
for a place of – what? Four thousand people?
– it has some remarkable claims to fame:
Alfred the Great once lost a major battle here
to advancing Danes; carpet-weaving expertise
allowed the town to give its name to perhaps
Britain’s most celebrated floor covering; while
over the years it’s been home to everything
from a major smallpox epidemic to the
scrambled egg and moustaches of Britain’s
military top brass.
The house sits in a particularly pretty
tree-lined square and is believed to
date from 1860 or thereabouts – the year that
Abraham Lincoln became US president and
Charles Dickens published his first chapters
of Great Expectations
The Apartment is ideally located within a pretty tree-lined square set in the quintessential English market town of Wilton. Once the ancient and historical Capital of Wessex, it has a wide range of family owned shops, cafes, pubs, and a great delicatessen as well as the Earl of Pembroke's Wilton House, described as England's most beautiful country house all with easy walking distance.
The enchanting Catherdral City of Salisbury is about 1.5 miles to the east and offers a more extensive range of both shopping and entertainment facilities.
Wilton is ideally located to explore the World Heritage site of Stonehenge, Avebury, Wardour Castle, the New Forest national park, lackock Abbey, City of Bath to name a few.
