  • "We had a lovely stay at The Barn - just what we wanted, a stay away from busy work to rest and relax."

    A great welcome from Gail and the property was very clean, tidy and comfortable. We enjoyed following the route for your favourite walk that we found in your guest information folder. We also enjoyed your baked treat of banana cake and we did take advantage of your kind offer to pop the extra Frog Pond Farm apple juice in our bag to enjoy at back at home; that is delicious! Highly recommended, we really enjoyed it.

    Comfortable, relaxing and in such a peaceful location, but with so much to do and see on the doorstep or within a short drive. in fact we enjoyed it so much that on our drive home we booked to go again next year!

    Looking out the floor to ceiling window was awesome even on rainy days. So many places to visit within easy reach and by using the park and ride facilities made it easy. A warm welcome from the owners and very helpful.

    Many thanks for your kind comments which are much appreciated. We are delighted you had an enjoyable stay with us in Ansty. Property Owner

  • "We loved our stay at the Barn."

    A very comfortable and peaceful spot with plenty of visits close by including country walks direct from the barn. The pubs we ate at, all within 15 minutes, were excellent and Tisbury has most things needed shopping wise. The station at Tisbury has a good rail service east to Salisbury (10 mins) and other destinations west. The hosts were very helpful. The bath without shower and a few low ceilings need noting, but that understood, it's brilliant.

  • "Very nice Barn in lovely quite setting in large grounds ideally situated for exploring the area ,only a few small negatives living area small ,bathroom has toilet in a position were it is difficult to stand in front due to sloping ceiling and apple tv is not very user friendly and kept losing signal."

    We are sorry that you found the bathroom facilities were not ideal, and will continue to draw people's attention to this in the description of the property - although it's difficult to change things significantly due to the design of the building. We are also sorry that you had issues with the Apple TV signal - this was the first problem anyone has encountered as far we are aware - but we will continue to keep a close eye on this. Thank you anyway, for your kind comments which are appreciated. Property Owner

    The bed, which is often a let down in rentals, is extremely comfortable. The barn is fitted out with everything you need and the garden is lovely. The owners are really friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I cannot praise this accommodation enough and will definitely be recommending this to family and friends.

The property

Tisbury Wiltshire 2.3 miles.

The Barn at Frog Pond Farm is in a picture-perfect setting, tucked away with a private entrance in the quintessential village of Ansty in Wiltshire.

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

Having achieved an outstanding rating with guests, The Barn welcomes many return visitors who complement the property on the standard of its accommodation, attention to detail and the beautiful, tranquil setting.

Key features include the ground-floor sitting room with striking floor to ceiling double height windows – emanating light throughout the day – first-floor mezzanine reading area, dressing room, bathroom and bedroom with westerly views over the gardens and surrounding countryside.

The pretty blue king-size bedroom comes with crisp white bedding and a plenty of storage.

The bathroom is equally inviting with a large cast-iron bath and hand-held shower, although due to the construction of The Barn the headroom is a little limited.

The outside dining terrace enjoys pleasant views and a sunny aspect, and has proved particularly popular.

When you can just about manage to tear yourself away from this idyllic home away from home, you will love being right at the heart of an area, designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The small but thriving community of Ansty were winners of Best Kept Small Village in 2019/2020 and right on the doorstep, you will find some lovely walks - begin with a walk to the grounds of Old Wardour Castle, before exploring Cranborne Chase and beyond.

Equally interesting for keen cyclists – both for road and track.

Several excellent golf courses include Rushmore and Salisbury South Wilts.

For pub lovers, there are several excellent establishments within a short drive including The Royal Oak at Swallowcliffe, Beckford Arms in Tisbury, Compasses Inn at Chicksgrove, King John at Tollard Royal, The Grosvenor at Hindon, The Museum at Farnham and the Horseshoe at Ebbesborne Wake proving to be particular favourites.

Local attractions include Stonehenge, Larmer Tree Gardens, Wiltion House, Salisbury Cathedral, Stourhead, Longleat, Shaftesbury Gold Hill, Sherborne Abbey, Bath and of course, The Jurassic Coast.

When it's festival season, Glastonbury Festival is only a short but scenic drive away.

For a holiday to remember for a lifetime, book a stay at The Barn at Frog Pond Farm.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


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 watcher’s 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 1,000 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 (which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the beautiful cathedral city of Salisbury.
