  • "Our second visit to The Barn & we were not disappointed!"

    The Barn is in a peaceful location ideally situated for visiting many interesting places or for just enjoying local walks, such as to Wardour Castle , Fonthill Lake or to the top of Cranbourne Chase. At the end of the day just sitting in the garden was a delight! Thanks to Mark & Gail for sharing this lovely place with us & we look forward to returning.

  • "Beautiful stay!"

    We had an amazing week at the Barn. The location is perfect - peaceful, tranquil, with picturesque countryside around. Perfect to recharge the batteries. Excellent for walks. It's easily accessible by car, just a short drive to Shaftesbury or Salisbury. Local countryside pubs are lovely. A welcome pack from the owners was a delightful surprise. The property is very clean and tastefully decorated, the bed is comfortable, and the garden is absolutely charming. Thank you, Mark and Gail!

  • "Tranquility and peace is all we had when we stayed at the Barn at Frog pond Farm."

    Very clean Thank you Gail and Mark for the cake, coffee . sugar and the flowers on the table. Could not have asked for anymore. The barn is also quiet private and secluded even though it’s on the same grounds with the owner la you still have your privacy. The use of key safe made it easier for us to check in and check out without having to wait for Gail and Mark. There is also a few shops and pubs in Tisbury . Would highly recommend to anyone wanting some peace and quietness

  • "The Barn at Frog Pond Farm is simply delightful."

    The conversion has been imaginatively carried out, the barn has been comfortably and tastefully furnished, and the maintenance and cleanliness are scrupulous. It is a lovely place to spend time, and an ideal base for experiencing the delights of Wiltshire and Dorset. Shaftesbury, Blandford Forum and Salisbury are all within easy reach, and the barn is surrounded by delightful villages with lovely country pubs. Oh yes, and Mark and Gail are delightful hosts! We couldn't have been happier, and we'd go back in a heartbeat.

The property

Tisbury 2.3 miles.

The Barn at Frog Pond Farm is a picture-perfect cottage, that can be found tucked away in the quintessential village of Ansty.

A homely abode lying deep within the luscious green county of Wiltshire, this wonderful dwelling offers the ultimate romantic retreat for two.

Emanating light from the striking floor to ceiling window, guests can enjoy wonderful views of the well-kept garden whilst sinking deep into the traditional sofa and delighting in a warm cup of coffee from the impressive Krups coffee maker.

Spend quality time with your significant other as you work together to create a scrumptious dinner for two with the help of the handy electrical appliances that lie within the pretty white cabinets, located within the charming farmhouse kitchen area, before taking a seat at the dining table and cracking open a perfectly chilled bottle of fizz for a toast to the good times ahead.

Retire to the sofas for a quiet night indoors, as you turn on the Apple TV and lose yourself in the captivating narrative of the latest blockbuster movie.

Venture up the staircase to the first floor and be greeted by a tranquil dressing room boasting a chic vanity table and a lovely armchair, where you can while away the hour reading your favourite book or indulge in a glass of wine as you take your time to get ready for a night on the town.

Head into the adjoining bathroom to draw yourself a nice hot bath, or make use of the handheld shower for a brisk morning wash ahead of an action-packed day.

Lay your head to rest in the pretty blue king-size bedroom, complete with crisp white bedding and a plethora of storage for housing all of your belongings, as you admire the views of the land right from your bedroom window.

When you can just about manage to tear yourself away from this idyllic home away from home, begin with a wander through the grounds of Old Wardour Castle, boasting panoramic views of the countryside, before exploring the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or visiting the Prescombe Down Nature Reserve.

Head to Tollard Royal for a day out to Rushmore Estate and Larmer Tree Gardens, or visit the historical landmark of East Knoyle Windmill.

Hop in the car for a scenic journey to Sailsbury, home to the 13th century High-street Gate and the former home of British Prime Minister Edward Heath, now a museum boasting an extensive collection of his personal belongings.

Visit the breath-taking Salisbury Cathedral and the eye-catching Magna Carta Chapter House, before grabbing a bite to eat in one of the many well-established restaurants in the area.

Further afield discover the iconic Stonehenge, a world-famous landmark and English heritage site well worth a visit during your stay.

Make the most of precious time with your loved one on a holiday at The Barn at Frog Pond Farm.

About the location

TISBURY, NEAR BATH

Shaftesbury 12 miles; Salisbury 15 miles.

An interesting, lively village on the Wiltshire/Dorset border, well served by a good selection of inns, shops, a library, a bank, a garage and with a regular rail link to both London and Exeter. The village is set in the valley of the River Nadder, a good fishing river which gently meanders its way down to Salisbury and where herons, grey wagtails and even kingfishers may be seen - a bird watchers paradise! Along the valley, the lush green countryside provides superb rural walks and cycling. Full of history, the nearby mill predates even the Domesday Book. A visit to the local churchyard reveals a famous 1000 year old yew tree and also the graves of Rudyard Kipling's parents, who lived here. The village serves as a great year round base for exploring this interesting area. Within a short drive are Wilton House, Shaftesbury, Old Wardour Castle, Stourhead, Stonehenge, and the beautiful cathedral city of Salisbury.
