    Can anyone tell me anything about Shrewton….? I haven’t done a lot of research yet and coming here is a first step but I’d love to know thoughts from anyone who might know it or the surrounding area? Thank you so much.

    I’ve only heard good things about Shrewton – it’s in lovely location on Salisbury Plain. Lots of military around there which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but you might hear some exercises going on nearby.

    Shrewton is a lovely village – with, I am told, a very good community spirit. It is rather full of old Royal Artillery officers – but they are mostly utterly charming. You will indeed hear the Army on the Plain – however, I do not think they bring the big vehicles through the village and you do get used to the occasional ‘bangs’. The countryside around it is glorious, with walks galore and plenty of picnicing opportunities. The A303 is very close by with access to both London and Devon. There is a thriving shop in the village and a garage, sadly the laundry has closed down. Nearby are both Devizes and Salisbury, both good for shopping and entertainment. I live about 5 miles away and LOVE it. Amesbury would be your closest shopping place – a Co-op and huge Tescos and on Solstice Park there are various food outlets (fast ones sadly). Good pubs around if you are in to that. Hope this helps.

    I have a close friend who grew up there and his Mother still lives in the village and albeit an older generation, loves it. A cracking location as mentioned, Bath is also not far away. Plenty of good schools both Private and State – boarding and day… I shouldn’t worry about exercises on Salisbury Plain, we here them occasionally and we live near Bradfrod on Avon!

    That is great thank you all so much. Now the next stage of looking at schools!

    It’s a lovely village, not the prettiest in Wiltshire, but very practical. There is a fantastic pre-school, a good primary, an excellent doctor and so many young children. Salisbury is only 20 minutes away and it’s only 1.5 hours drive to SW London to visit old friends. We’ve been here 2 years now and have made some lovely friends.
