About the location

West Knoyle

Mere 3 miles; Gillingham 4 miles; Shaftesbury 7 miles.

The two rural communities of East and West Knoyle, the former being the birthplace of Sir Christopher Wren, sit on the Wiltshire side of the Dorset border and are also close to the border with Somerset. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and on the edge of the Blackmore Vale, the gentle rolling West Wiltshire downland is dotted with picturesque villages and lovely walks, with the impressive house and gardens at Stourhead just a short drive away. Close by, there are opportunities for sailing available at Shear Water, which borders the Longleat Estate, well-known for its Safari Park and stunning stately home. There are numerous places of interest worth visiting nearby, including mystical Stonehenge, the beautiful cathedral city of Salisbury and the impressive city of Bath. This is a delightful rural base from which to explore this fascinating area.

The Cider Barn was home from home. Had a fab time. Very relaxing place .

Miss Heathfield, Chatham, January 2014

The Cider Barn, though in an area that was out of the way, was just a small drive in any direction to so much. It was the perfect place to come back to after a day of sight seeing. In the evening where usually you would find street lamps, there was no light pollution so the skies were clear and full of stars! Beautiful and perfect for a short break.

Mr O'sullivan, Tunbridge Wells, December 2013

Cosy accommodation perfect for a quiet get away.

Mrs Berwick, Ipswich, November 2013

The property was spotless and very comfortable. The hosts were good at providing any information that you needed. I would recommend this property.
