    “Just returned from a weeks stay at The Old Dairy with our four legged friends who enjoyed their holiday just as much as we did.”

    Excellent holiday accommodation in a beautiful setting with everything you could possibly need. Lovely walks straight from the property and a local pub (The Well) right on you doorstep serving excellent food and beer. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and quickly assisted with any property issues. Brilliant!

About the property

Seend 2.5 miles.

This exceptional holiday home can be found resting in an idyllic location on a non-working farm with fabulous panoramic views across the countryside of Wiltshire.

All on the ground floor, The Old Dairy is a spectacular Barn Conversion from which you and your loved ones can enjoy undisturbed far-reaching views across open fields to The Salisbury Plain, it makes the ultimate relaxing retreat.

Enjoy spending quality time together in the open-plan living space, boasting a fabulous social aspect so everyone can be together at once.

Here you can snuggle up around the woodburning stove in the winter months and warm your feet with the underfloor heating; it creates a wonderfully snug setting from which to unwind on the plush sofas with your favourite film playing on the Smart TV.

At the centre of the room sits the dining area, hosting enough seats for all, raise a glass to your holiday as you spend the evening relaxing beneath the oak framed vaulted ceiling.

At the other end of the room sits the fully equipped kitchen, offering a breakfast bar with additional seating with adjacent utility room, this newly renovated barn offers all you could need for a perfect stay, even a Nespresso coffee machine and a soda stream!

At the end of each night, seek comfort in one of the three well-appointed bedrooms, each with its own theme, here you can find the master 'Pheasant' room home to a king-size bed with its own TV and gleaming en-suite shower room, the 'Hare' bedroom also with a king-size bed with jack-and-jill access to the impressive family shower room and finally the 'hound' room with twin 3ft single beds perfect for little ones.

Outside the wonder continues, where you can choose to sit out on either the front or rear of the property, chasing the sun with the rolling hills making a beautiful backdrop at any time of year, as you enjoy alfresco dining or barbecue.

The local area of Bulkington is wonderfully remote; the walking is superb and can be accessed from your doorstep, taking you around the village or right up to the Salisbury Plain.

The nearby Kennet and Avon canal offers excellent walking to Devizes taking in the The Caen Hill locks, or as far as Bradford -on -Avon and even Bath for the serious walkers.

The village pub, The Well, offers excellent food and at 0.3 miles is only a walk away.

Surrounding villages boast excellent pubs for you to enjoy, from The Raven at Poulshot, The Barge on the banks of the Kennet & Avon canal at Seend, The Three Magpies at Sells Green and The 3 Daggers at Eddington which has its own micro brewery to enjoy.

Guests can access a full range of supermarkets (Waitrose, M&S, Tesco, Saisbury's, Asda, Morrisons, Lidl & Aldi) in Melksham, Trowbridge and Devizes, or shop at local high quality farm shops in the surrounding villages.

If you're seeking shopping experiences, Bradford on Avon, Bath and Salisbury are easily accessible by car or train (from Trowbridge) and Swindon offers retail outlet shopping too.

The market town of Devizes offers its own museum where you can learn of history of the area or take a tour of Wadworth Brewery, or a trip to Marlborough would bring history to life as you discover the delights of Avebury, Silbury Hill, and West Kennet LongBarrow.

Venturing further afield to Salisbury you can take in a visit to Stonehenge (17 Miles) and of course the backdrop of many costume dramas Lacock (only 9 miles away), with its historic Abbey, the birth place of photography, is a must for any trip.

Or if you fancy something a bit “Wilder” Longleat House and Safari Park is less than 16 miles away.

Bath boasts magnificent architecture as well as a plethora of historical wonders to discover including its roman baths and spa, imposing abbey and range of museums, while the Cotswolds and North Wessex Downs' Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty pose the perfect experience for the avid outdoors lover.

The Old Dairy is a spectacular choice for your escape to the historic West Country.
