Community action on tourism

A group of accommodation providers within a 6 mile radius of Longleat have decided to cooperate as a group by building a website for local businesses in the area.  The dedicated website  helps to promote the area and to hopefully encourage visitors to stay longer to enjoy what is on offer in the area.

The creation of this business group is very timely, as the AONB is in the process of submitting a bid to the Sowing Seeds Local Action Group to support the visitor economy of the area. The bid seeks funding for a coordinator, part of whose job would be, to encourage more such business clusters.

If you are interested in knowing more about this project or feel you could provide a letter of support for the bid please contact the AONB Manager, Linda Nunn on 01722 505214 or email her at
