​Wiltshire Life's Homes and Gardens supplement focuses on restoration and regeneration, whether that be turning a historic but water-ravaged wreck into the beautiful B&B, Prince Hill House, once a meeting place for Churchill and Eisenhower, or successfully negotiating the process of a grand residential building project.

We find out how to turn a sloping, overgrown garden into a hidden gem worthy of being open to the public, and why our gardens should provide food and shelter for wild bees. We also find out more about how you can help find the lost fuchsias of one of Wiltshire's most eminent horticulturalists.

Inside the house, we find out about the latest flooring trends and how to create the perfect study or media room. If your ambition is to find that perfect house in the country, then we have all the advice you will need. We have inspirational ideas for your home and a supplier noticeboard, where you can find companies to turn your dreams into reality.
