The World Heritage site of Stonehenge is in a very open area on the edge of the military ranges and Salisbury Plain. There are not many populated areas very close to the monument apart from small villages.

, The George Hotel
and The Fairlawn

Others offering bed and breakfast outside the town are mostly in or near to the villages. Close to Shrewton village, which is only five minutes drive from Stonehenege, is Rolleston Manor, an historic Grade ll listed building with seven rooms and a restaurant.
