5 Tips on How to Find Your Ideal Location in Wiltshire
Wiltshire’s located between Hampshire to the east, and some of the UK’s most beloved holiday destinations to the west. For many people, therefore, it’s a county they’ve driven through rather than explored in its own right. At Schepens we see it differently. We’ve been providing Wiltshire removals for over 100 years now, and we know every corner of this beautiful region. It’s rich in its ancient landscape, its history, and in the choices it offers people looking to move outside London.
Here are our suggestions for the 5 best places to live in Wiltshire:
1. The Medieval City of Salisbury
This is the best known location in the county, and Salisbury removals are amongst our most popular. Nearly a million tourists flock to Salisbury each year to visit the 14th century cathedral, and wander the medieval streets. Behind the tourism, through, is a vibrant riverside city that offers great shopping, an international arts festival, and stunning countryside in every direction.
2. The Market Town of Chippenham
If you’re looking for a town, rather than a city, Chippenham provides a vibrant blend of history and contemporary influences. It sits midway between Swindon and Bath, and picks up quite a few architectural influences from the nearby Cotswolds. One of the best things about moving to Chippenham is the fact that it’s surrounded by some of the loveliest villages England has to offer, such as Lacock, Castle Combe and Biddestone.
3. Bustling Bradford-on-Avon
This is considered by many to be Wiltshire’s miniature Bath, and it shares many of its attractions. The buildings are similar, and it’s located on the same River Avon. The town is smaller of course, but it shares a love of arcades, independent boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants. Bradford-on-Avon started life as a cloth town, and has retained the bustle and business suggested by its origins.
4. Ancient Malmesbury
You can feel the age of Malmesbury as you snake up the High Street, get distracted by the narrow alleyways, or take in the rivers that surround the hilltop town. This is an ancient settlement that has evolved elegantly into a working 21st century market town. It wears its history with ease, and doesn’t define itself as a tourist spot. Instead, it offers a quiet pace of life, beautiful architecture, and a life off the beaten track.
5. Keep an Eye on Trowbridge
Not the prettiest of towns, or the most vibrant – at the moment. But Trowbridge was recently voted as the top ‘up-and-coming’ town in Wiltshire. The fact that it’s not achieved its potential yet means that the house prices are comparatively cheap and there’s plenty of choice. It’s also well connected; there are direct trains to London, Bath, Brighton and Cardiff.
About Schepens Removals

5 Tips on How to Find Your Ideal Location in Wiltshire
So, you’re moving to Wiltshire, but where in this diverse county do you start looking for your new home? Here are 5 starting points to get you thinking about exactly what you want from Wiltshire removals.
1. Town or Country?
If you’re moving to Wiltshire from a small apartment in London, your first thought will probably be a rambling farmhouse, with no neighbours and a great view. Wiltshire has plenty of remote homes on offer, but could you really live 5-10 miles from the nearest shops? Just imagine what it would be like to manage a long school run each day, or travel 20 minutes to the gym – in the winter. If it starts to look like a bit of a nightmare, set new criteria and start a new search.
2. The Difficult Stuff
Making a big change in your life takes a huge amount of courage, so – for most people – it’s important to think about all the benefits it will confer on your life. But, then there’s the difficult bits that tend to get ignored because they may sap your enthusiasm. Set yourself a date with those difficult bits, and take a long hard look at them. It’s the stuff like the length of the commute, the potential need for 2 cars, finding childminders. If you’re still up for it, you know it’s the right thing to do.
3. Get the Lay of the Land
You can check out local towns online, but what about the huge tracts of wonderful hiking country to be explored. Get yourself an OS map and take a few virtual walks. Check out where the beauty spots are, how far things are from each other, and what the road network’s like. It won’t take long to feel like you know the lay of the land, and you’ll get a better sense of property locations than you would from Google Maps.
4. Stress Test Your Chosen Location
If you’re in no immediate rush to move, create a ‘stress test’ for the town or village you’re thinking of moving to. Visit in all the seasons, and try to stay in different locations each time. See how it feels to walk out and about. Are the locals friendly? Does there seem to be much going on in the winter? Is it a tourist trap in the summer? Try out your commute, check what the parking’s like, and do a ‘shop’ in the local grocers.
5. How Will I Meet People?
Moving to a new location means creating a new network of friends. Often this happens naturally, through school, or work. But what about finding people who can share your interests and passions? Is there a local yoga class/book club/drama society/choir? Ask around, or subscribe to a local newsletter, or Facebook group. We all need to find somewhere uniquely ours to relax, kick back and spend time with friends.
Schepens has been offering Wiltshire removals for over a century now. We know the county well, and our local removals teams have grown up in the area. Part of the service we provide to movers is the local knowledge we’re able to provide as you approach moving day.

Piano Removals Wiltshire
For decades now, the Schepens specialist removals team have moved a whole range of pianos for clients living in Salisbury, and across the county of Wiltshire. We’ve hoisted grand pianos through second floor windows, and negotiated narrow hallways with historic harpsichords. Moving a piano always has the potential to present unique challenges, which is why we always use specialists to manage the process.
Why are Piano Removals Challenging?
A great number of the pianos we move at Schepens are large, heavy and extremely valuable, both financially and emotionally. Unless they’re moved by specialists who know what they’re doing, a piano removal can inflict physical damage on people, paintwork and the piano itself. We treat piano removals with the utmost respect, care and investment to ensure that both instrument and movers come out unscathed.
FREE No Obligation Quotes for Piano Removals in Wiltshire
We’ll provide you with an accurate quotation for your piano removal. In order to do so, we’ll assess your piano and its location in order to find out:
- The kind of piano you’re moving
- The age and condition of your piano
- The location it’s being moved from
- Any staircases or steps involved in the move
- The width and height of doorways it will pass through
- Any damage we’ll need to take into account
Once we know this, we’ll be able to determine how big our specialist team will need to be, and whether they’ll need specialist moving equipment. This allows us to arrive at a transparent and accurate quotation for your move.
