Great for Salisbury (walking distance) and Stonehenge. Highly recommend.

"We had a lovely time staying in the Nadder barn."
The welcome we received by the owner was very good and the property itself had almost everything.The only thing lacking was a television in the bedroom which would be a welcome addition for families who like to watch different tv programmes etc. We liked the variety of paintings/pictures on display and the amount of books dvd's etc. Also, the garden was a delight .Overall, highly recommended

"We had a wonderful stay at Nadder Barn, the location was perfect with easy access to Salisbury."
The gardens were stunning leading down to the river surrounded by mature trees and shrubs. Our host Caroline was most accommodating in every way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The barn itself was just beautiful with large patio doors making the most of the views to the garden. The fixtures and fittings were of a high standard and we were greeted with a tasty welcome pack. Highly recommended.

"The proper owner was the nicest I’ve come across."
Couldn’t be more helpful. Lovely immaculate property, thoughtful touches. Good kitchen facilities and toys! We were all happy. Loved the shower too. What really meant a lot was she did an allergy friendly hamper for us - what a treat! Thank you

"We spent 2 weeks in this great accommodation."
A perfect place to spend. Lovely quiet stay on the outskirts of Salibury. We could make unlimited use of the garden and sat by the river. Hostess was incredibly nice. We had a great time.

"A lovely cottage set in the owners beautiful garden backing onto the river."
Ideally located for exploring Salisbury and the surrounding areas. The cottage was well equipped with everything you need. Thanks to Caroline and Andrew for their kind hospitality !
Thank you so much for this feedback which is much appreciated. We're delighted you enjoyed the cottage and location and were able to make the most of the surrounding area. Property Owner
"Nadder Barn is a lovely cottage in a good location."
It is furnished to a very high standard, is extremely comfortable and is equipped with everything you would need. It was spotlessly clean and our host had provided a basket of goodies including chocolate biscuits, bread, crisps and wine. Salisbury city centre is approximately half an hour's walk away. We didn't want to leave!!
Thank you so much for the feedback. Fabulous that you loved the cottage and location. Pleased you enjoyed the welcome hamper. Look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner
"Fantastic property with excellent hosts within walking distance of Salisbury centre."
The facilities, and the comfort and cleanliness of the property itself, is of the very highest standard. The owners, Caroline and Andrew are lovely – welcoming and very friendly, and really go out of their way to make sure that guests’ every need is taken care of. The property is only about a 15-minute direct walk from Salisbury centre or a 25-minute leisurely walk through scenic fields and woodland before joining the Town Path with famous views of Salisbury Cathedral. The location is very quiet, with a garden which runs down to the river Nadder, giving guests the advantage of a riverside location with the opportunity of catching glimpses of kingfishers and water vole. The property is also ideally placed as a base for visiting places of interest further afield, of which there are many within easy driving distance. This year was our third visit to Nadder Barn, and we will certainly be returning again in the future, as this property is the best we have come across in many years of renting self-catering holiday properties. We can wholeheartedly recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Salisbury and the surrounding area.
Thank you so much for your complimentary feedback. We are very glad that you have returned again to Nadder Barn and have enjoyed your stay as much as previously. Thank you for your detailed information on the locality and facilities, which will be very useful for future guests. We look forward to welcoming you back again to Nadder Barn. Property Owner
"Nadder Barn is the perfect place to spend a holiday!"
We were there for one week with to kids (2&5 years old). There is absolutely nothing we missed. It is exactly as on the photos, extremely clean and well looked after. Caroline, the host, is a lovely person with a warm and kind welcome and immediate help when necessary. The garden and the river are perfect for kids and parents, the location easy to get into town by foot (our kids don’t like walking, with a buggy it was perfect) and great for exploring Bath and Moors Valley/coast. I would give Caroline and Nadder Barn more stars if it were possible, I can highly recommend it to anybody!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave feedback. Brilliant to read you had an amazing stay, Nadder Barn was exactly what you expected and you enjoyed exploring the surrounding areas. Property Owner

"Attractive property in the beautiful garden of the owner which leads down to the river."
Very clean and well equipped cottage. It is a short bus ride or a walk through the water meadows to the centre of Salisbury. Alternatively, it is close to the countryside and a friendly local pub. Plenty of games and children's books in the cottage. The owner was both welcoming and helpful.
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback and we're glad you enjoyed your stay at Nadder Barn. It is indeed a lovely location and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

"Had a wonderful short stay at this barn."
The hosts were warm & welcoming, the barn was comfortable, clean, charming & well equipped. There are some delightful quirky features (the upstairs windows!), & a relaxing ambience to the place. I'd definitely recommend, & would happily visit again.

Beautiful cosy barn.
"Nadder Barn truly is a home from home, the barn has everything you could possibly need and all the childrens toys/ books and garden toys were an added bonus for our son."
We had a great time exploring the local area. The owners go out of their way to help with any questions etc. We would highly recommend.
We are thrilled to hear that you had a delightful time at Nadder Barn, and enjoyed exploring the surrounding areas. Please do come again in the future! Property Owner
"We arrived to a warm friendly welcome from the owner and quickly found that Nadder Barn is superbly appointed and wanting for nothing."
Comfortable and warm with secure parking and just a mile or so away from Salisbury cathedral this property really exceeded our expectations. We’ve stayed in many self catering properties over the years and this is one of the best. Highly recommended! L&K

"Our second, but not last, visit to this amazing property."
Such a peaceful and relaxing place, close enough to Salisbury yet ideally located for days out and visiting the surrounding area. The owner, Caroline, really does put her heart and soul into the guests' comfort, nothing is left to chance, so that they can really enjoy their holiday. Just fabulous.
Thank you for providing us with your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner

The lady Caroline very pleasant and nothing too much trouble, including a fantastic welcome pack.

"Nadder Barn is a wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting."
Caroline had thought of everything when it came to stocking the kitchen. I can't think of a single utensil or cooking implement you would need that wasn't there. The bedrooms were equipped with comfortable beds, a choice of pillows and plenty of storage space. I appreciated the thought in the little things, such as a magnifying mirror and the variety of books on offer. Our daughter's had a fantastic time bodyboarding in the shallow river at the bottom of the garden. Another kind touch, allowing us to use the bodyboards. It was a lovely end to the day, sitting on one of the wooden garden chairs, with either a coffee or a gin and tonic, watching the sun glinting on the river and the girls having fun. Caroline and Andrew were extremely friendly and easy to get along with, helping me with a running route and directions on how to get to a supermarket etc. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Nadder Barn to anyone.
Thank you for taking the time and leaving such a wonderful feedback, we are thrilled that you all and specially your daughters enjoyed your stay and made use of all the facilities available. Property Owner
"Lovely, well equipped and attractively decorated cottage."
It was in the grounds of the owner's house, they were very nice and we only saw them at changeover and when they helped us with the wifi. The garden is beautiful with a river running at the bottom of it where we sat and saw kingfishers.
Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay. It's lovely to hear how much you enjoyed staying, it's a wonderful spot to sit back and relax. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

"A true home from home."
The cottage is stocked with all the little things that matter for an easy stay and with the city centre so close by as well as the local supermarkets it's all on hand. The family are very friendly and helpful and a plus to the holiday.
Thank you for your lovely comments on Nadder Barn! Property Owner
"Outstanding garden complementing the outstanding accommodation."
Delightful and helpful owner.

"Owners are extremely welcoming and helpful without being intrusive."
Almost everything is excellent though I would like somewhere to put the soap in the shower!
"Nadder Barn is the best holiday home with every comfort provided."
The owner took great care to ensure that the property was ‘COVID secure’ and we have just returned from a very relaxed and happy break. The house and garden are lovely.
Many thanks for your comments on Nadder Barn, it is great to hear that it is the best holiday home! Property Owner
"Nadder Barn was a home-from-home."
Very comfortable, scrupiously clean and well-equipped. The welcome pack from the owner was an unexpected surprise, as were all the thoughtful touches. The location was great - walking distance of Salisbury city-centre and to the railway station (we had a day out in Portsmouth, by train). It was the best cottage we have stayed-in. Delightful.
"Nadder Barn was everything we expected and more."
Lovely host who was very helpful with restaurant recommendations before we arrived, and had made sure the barn was immaculate for our arrival. The barn had many home comforts, and was kitted out with everything you could imagine in terms of kitchen equipment, cutlery, crockery, tupperware etc. The welcome pack was great and thoroughly enjoyed. The TV had Netflix and Prime which was a bonus. There were many books, games, maps and walking guides as well as quite a collection of DVDs to use. The beds were very comfortable and the linens on them were of a very good quality. We sat out in the garden on several occasions, and down by the river where we watched the ducks, as well as a kingfisher! The location of the property was great in that it was walkable into Salisbury (for adults and older children) to access shops, restaurants, the cathedral etc. The Dorset coastline is just over an hour away. A really good holiday, made all the better by a great base.
"Fantastic setting on the river, seats provided to sit looking over the river, very comfortable with everything we could have wanted."
Well positioned just 1 Mile from city centre. Very quite, peaceful location despite being close to everything we wanted to see.
Thank you for your feedback regarding Nadder Barn. It's great to hear how much you enjoyed yourselves and we hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

"Really great time at Nadder Barn, great location, well appointed accommodation, very helpful hosts, children loved the garden and river, overall really great holiday!"
"We had a great week in this lovely Barn."
We had a lovely welcome from the host- who also kindly provided some extra goodies on arrival. The Barn was beautifully clean and tidy, with lots of thought given to the additional extras which made our stay even better! The quality of everything in the Barn was excellent- can’t recommend the place highly enough. We could have moved in!
"What an amazing property!"
Could not find fault with anything - not that we were looking! Such a beautiful, tranquil setting, with good access to local attractions. Felt at home immediately, and looking forward to a second visit - hopefully with better weather! Caroline was more than welcoming, and the 'welcome gift' was very much appreciated.
Thank you for such lovely feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Nadder Barn and look forward to welcoming you back soon! Property Owner
"This is excellent accommodation."
Caroline, the owner has clearly put a lot of effort and investment into ensuring that the property is well equipped, clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Salisbury. Thank you.
Thank you for taking time to leave your lovely comments on Nadder Barn. Hideaways. Property Owner
"This was our second winter stay in Nadder Barn."
It is everything we wanted: a cosy, well equipped cottage in a quiet, scenic setting. We were there over Christmas and the New Year, and the owner had gone to extraordinary pains to decorate it festively, with a Christmas tree, crackers and a hamper of food and wine, all of which made us feel most welcome. We've stayed at a few good cottages in Wilts over the years, and this has been by far the best.
Thank you for returning to Nadder Barn for a second time. We are pleased to hear it was everything you wanted and it was the best stay by far. We hope to welcome you back to our cottages in the future. Hideaways. Property Owner
"Nadder Barn was a great choice for our stay near Salisbury."
The barn is very stylish, but also extremely comfortable and well equipped. The bed was so comfortable. There is an amazing selection of books and games and a large screen TV in the cosy sitting room end of the open plan downstairs. The shower was great. All in all we couldn't fault anything. Caroline was so helpful and friendly and left a welcome arrange of goodies to start us off. Parking is easy. We didn't walk into Salisbury because it was extremely cold, We want to return when the weather is warmer so that we enjoy the riverside walk into the city and take more advantage of the beautiful garden with the river at the end of it.We look forward to sitting on the seats provided and just watching the river! As it was I enjoyed watching the squirrels and a wren that came quite close to the french doors. Thanks Caroline for providing such a brilliant place to stay.
Thank you for your lovely comments on Nadder Barn and we look forward to welcoming you in the near future! Property Owner
"The position, the pretty outlook, the privacy."
Everything provided for a comfortable stay.
"Absolutely Fabulous cottage, will book again."
"Nadder barn was everything we could have possibly wanted."
Cosy, clean, tastefully furnished and well equipped. Caroline was welcoming, helpful and friendly. We hope to return.
"This is a very nice and Wonderful arranged house!"
The renter are very very nice and helpful.
Excellent area and very very comfortable.
"The property is exceedingly well appointed and has everything that guests are likely to need."
The facilities, and the comfort and cleanliness of the property itself, is of the very highest standard. The owner, Caroline, is a lovely person, and really goes out of her way to make sure that guests feel welcome and that their every need is taken care of. Although the property is only about 20 minutes walk from Salisbury centre, the location is very quiet, with a garden which runs down to the River Nadder, giving guests the advantage of a riverside location. The property is also ideally placed as a base for visiting places of interest further afield, of which there are many within easy driving distance. This year was our second visit to Nadder Barn, and we will certainly be returning again in the future, as this property is the best which we have come across in many years of renting self catering holiday properties. We can wholeheartedly recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Salisbury and the surrounding area.
"The whole experience, from being met by Caroline when we arrived."
The fabulous location of the Barn , the beautiful view from the bottom of their garden over the water. The fact that Caroline had thought of absolutely everything one needed, we wanted for nothing. The very generous touches of a gift pack , which was not at all expected. Such luxury! The Barn had a lovely homely feel to it which enabled my husband and I to have a complete rest. Only being a mile away from the town and being able to do a lovely country walk into town was a delight, we did it many times. We had a lovely week.
"Everything was perfect - Caroline was a wonderful host, nothing too much trouble, and her girls, Bella and Bobbi played wonderfully with my son."
Having the use of the garden was a great bonus and the massive trampoline was well used! The converted barn has everything that we could have possibly wanted and is furnished to an exceptional standard - it's like stepping into a showroom and was really comfortable and beautiful.
"The property was immaculate, well furnished and with absolutely everything we required for a quiet break."
The owner, Caroline, was extremely helpful and supportive in every way.
"The cottage was perfect and a wonderful Christmas escape."
The hosts could not have been more friendly and helpful. Would stay again and would certainly recommend.
"The accommodation description both written and visual were exactly as stated."
Very clean and tidy accommodation with many little extras on our arrival. Excellent check-in and check-out procedures and the owner was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed the week before Christmas and were delighted to see a real Christmas tree installed and a fully decorated room which we were not expecting but were delighted with and really set the scene for Christmas. Nadder Barn is a lovely place to stay and ideally located for walks along the river and the town. We will definitely book again when visiting Salisbury.
"This is my second time staying at Nadder Barn, and it was as lovely as ever."
Thank you Caroline and family (including Betty
"We had a perfect holiday, a warm welkom, perfect cottage in a lovely garden and a beautiful environment."
In one word SUPER!
"The barn was really cosy, beautiful and well equipped."
I loved that there were so many books and games for my children to play with (and lots of books everywhere for myself to read, had I the time!). The garden was big and beautiful and my children loved playing on the tree swing and watching the ducks, swans and geese swim by at the river! We were made to feel very welcome and really appreciated the bread, wine, milk, butter and cookies left for us on arrival! The house is in a lovely peaceful area but also nice and close to town. I would definitely recommend staying there to family and friends, and I hope to stay there again next time we visit Salisbury!
"Thank you for a lovely stay at Nadder Barn and a wonderful welcome pack (most useful too)."
The kids really enjoyed themselves - a good selection of toys - thank you .
"A hot week!"
We all really enjoyed our stay at Nadder Barn and the kids loved playing outside. Highly recomment Bird and Carter in Wilton for food. We had a great stay, a really lovely place and the owners were really nice.
"Thank you for a fabulous stay in your beautiful Nadder Barn."
Everything we needed - a home away from home. I'm sure we will return.
"My wife and I recently stayed here for a two week holiday."
Nadder Barn is excellent in all respects. Careful thought and attention to detail throughout has been made by our hosts. Nothing was to much bother and we were made to feel very welcome. It is very comfortable and has been finished to a very high standard. It is secluded behind the main gate for the owners property and access river at the bottom of the garden for fishing was great. There is a small patio area as well. Weather permitting! The barn is ideally situated as a base for day trips to Salisbury,Portsmouth and Southampton. It is close to public transport( buses and trains) I would not hesitate to recommend this place for a stay.
"We had a lovely long weekend - very comfortable and quiet."
A fantastic location with so much to see and do in the area
"The owners' hospitality, the first class amenities and the surroundings at Nadder Barn exceeded all our expectations."
Nothing was too much trouble for you. Our week here was over all too soon. Thank you.
"We enjoyed our stay in this wonderful home very much."
We could have stayed for longer as there is so much to do and see around Salisbury.
"Thank you for a great week's holiday."
The barn was fantastic!
"Excellent cottage, super location."
We really enjoyed our time there.
"We have really enjoyed our stay in Nadder Barn."
There are many things to do in the area and we particularly enjoyed walking to Salisbury along the river. We had everything we needed and more in the house and really appreicated the welcome "hamper", the wide range of reading material and the "Art Trail" booklet which Caroline thoughtfully provided.
"We had a wonderful stay at Nadder Barn."
This spacious but comfortable cottage provides everything you could wish for. Modern and quality amenities and tastefully decorated. Everything was also spotlessly clean. The location itself is quiet and perfect to explore Salisbury by foot, but there is also a bus stop in front of the house. Other attractions, e.g. Wilton House, Winchester or the New Forest are in easy driving distance. Not to forget the wonderful garden at the back of the house. As we have been blessed with dry weather, our children loved to play there every afternoon. The owners were friendly and helpful too. All in all we really enjoyed this stay and we would definitely stay here again.
"Thank you so much, we have had a lovely stay at Nadder Barn."
The barn is gorgeous, the garden is lovely, the boys have so enjoyed playing with the girls.
"Stayed the first week of August with my wife and son (who spent every dry evening playing outside in the lovely garden)."
Thoroughly enjoyed our week. Lovely place. Great selection of books to read - most impressed. I re-read a couple of old favourites. Our son didn't want to leave.
"A 5 star retreat!"
Exceeded our expectations - such a beautiful garden outlook and top quality things inside. Caroline is a delightful host.
"Absolutely delightful accommodation & very well equipped."
The week went far too quickly. Loved the book selection. Great furniture, substantial and aesthetically pleasing with 'Homes & Gardens' decor.
"We loved our stay here at Nadder Barn."
We enjoyed going to National Trust places, eating out at a couple of restaurants for dinner and coffee shops. We also went for some lovely walks and trails; there were some beautiful public footpaths. The children loved the garden.
"This house is simply amazing and perfect."
The location is conveniently close to the city centre without all the hussle and bussle that goes with staying in a city. The accommodation itself is perfect, the owners have very thoughtfully catered for their guests needs. Caroline, the owner is really very nice and caring, she is very genuine with her welcome and tries very hard to make sure that our stay is enjoyable. Already on our list to go back.
"My wife and I holiday in the UK every winter and Nadder Barn was the second cottage we've tried out in the Salisbury area."
It is a lovely property and can be thoroughly recommended as a home-away-from-home for a couple (as in our case) or a family of four. Caroline, the owner, met us on arrival and showed us around. I was delighted to see (we took the property over Christmas week) the cottage beautifully decorated for Christmas, complete with tree and even crackers. A welcome hamper including bread, wine, milk, coffee and even a box of chocolates, was a very nice touch (some laundry liquid might have come in handy, though!). The owners encourage guests to use their beautifully-maintained garden, with a lovely lawn that adjoins the Nadder River, and the house is secured behind electric gates. Although it is in a built-up area about 150 metres from a railway line, we felt as if we were in the country and were not disturbed by noise from road traffic or trains (this was a concern for me as I am a very light sleeper). And despite the frosty -5Â°C we experienced one night, the central heating worked very well, keeping the house very snug and cosy. The only glitch we had was on our first evening, when we found the heating not working well. I reported this to the owner, who came in immediately and attended to it, calling in a plumber, who arrived within 15 minutes to fix the problem - being after dark during Christmas week, I am familiar enough with the UK to know this was nothing short of magic. There is a very nice 3-km footpath (â€œBroken Bridgesâ€, I believe it is called) nearby, that leads across the Nadder wetlands, which I recommend highly to anyone who enjoys walking. We also found the Lush House car park on Cranebridge Road a handy place to park and explore the city, a 5 minute walk to the cathedral and other attractions. I tend to be fastidious and picky about where we stay, but wrack my brains as I may, I cannot think a single negative thought about Nadder Barn: all in all, I couldn't recommend this property more and we hope to stay there again.
"I stayed in Nadder Barn for a month for work."
The location is idyllic. The barn is well equipped with everything you could possibly need and is beautifully presented. The hosts went out of their way to make us feel so welcome. Caroline even sorted out postage to Australia for a GPS system I left behind! I highly recommend this property for anyone visiting Salisbury. I look forward to my next stay :)
"This is a top quality barn conversion with great attention to detail and high quality fittings and furnishings."
No attention spared, even the magazines, tourism information and DVDs are all current and well chosen. And best of all is the most beautiful expansive garden ending in a stream where there are ducks and the loveliest views. Importantly the owner is accessible and responsive as well as most helpful about the local area. Great location short drive from the train station - about 5 minutes - and about 10 minutes into the centre of town. Safe and secure behind large gates. Of the many places I have stayed, this was by far the best quality and value for money.
"Caroline your flair and attention to provide impeccably high standards, quality and style are obvious & very much appreciated."
A gorgeous property, garden & location - simply perfect in every way.
"Nadder Barn is truly a wonderful place to relax, unwind and enjoy peace of mind."
It is perfectly positioned just on the edge of Salisbury to avoid excessive town noise but close enough (walk, bus or car) to enjoy all its amenities and sights. The property itself has been masterfully and tastefully refurbished, offering first class accommodation. The massive garden at the back and the private south-facing patio are idyllic when the sun shines. The addition of super-fast broadband was a bonus for us silver-surfers! The owner, Caroline, is delightful: ready to answer any enquiries but respectful of one's privacy. Thoroughly recommended.
"Wonderful week in Wiltshire topped only by a wonderful accommodation."
Great holidays, great accommodation. Lovely to meet you all as a family. Betty was lovely and Mo is something else. Thank you. We would not hesitate to return.
"A lovely property."
All our needs taken care of. Owners friendly and on hand but not intrusive. Well placed to visit all the areas many attractions. Salisbury itself, Stonehenge, beautiful countryside and villages. Delighted by the chance to catch brown trout on the Nadder which really is at the bottom of the lovely garden. A first class hideaway that I would, and have recommended to anyone.
"Tucked away from sight yet within really easy access of the city by car or by rural public footpath, this is a truly exceptional barn conversion, well appointed in every way and a delight to stay in with everything seemingly catered for."
Such a high standard of cleanliness, furnishings and dÃ©cor. Can't recommend it highly enough. Go there! Sleeps 4 easily and properly!
"The cottage was immaculate,very stylish and very comfortable."
"The location is very quiet, on the river but close to the city center."
\ The owner is very kind and collaborative.\ The check in was very easy and week end could arrive at any time.
"This was a delightful property ideally placed for easy access to Salisbury and the surrounding countryside."
The owners were absolutely marvellous, and went out of their way to ensure that our stay was an enjoyable one.
"The property is delightful."
The location excellent. The owner could not have done more to make our visit perfect.
"The cottage was very well equipped - a real home from home."
"We stayed here with my two young children over the New Year."
It was raining but the house was warm and cosy so you didn't really want to leave. The open plan living downstairs was great, lots of books and toys for the kids and the kitchen was well equipped. The kids loved running up and down the long corridor upstairs. Everything was good quality and spotlessly clean. We found a walking trail nearby that took us all the way into Salisbury. After a good walk (with the children) we ended up in the playground and in Salisbury city centre...a really lovely scenic walk practically on the doorstep. When the weather was dry the sloping garden was great fun for the kids too with the little tree house and the river (which is gated off) at the end of the garden The owner was lovely too, but they left us alone which was nice.

From the moment you drive through the gates, you will find it hard to believe that you are only one mile from the centre of this bustling city. Set within the grounds of the owners’ lovely home and dating back 100 years, Nadder Barn still retains its exposed beams, original ‘owl slits’ and old brick walls.
The slightly rustic interior has been beautifully restored and now offers well lit, stylishly furnished, contemporary living spaces with exceptional attention to detail.
French windows from the main living area open out onto a paved patio area, from where a large lawned garden shared with owners, stretches down to the River Nadder. Being so close to the city centre, you have a wealth of shops and restaurants on your doorstep, making this an excellent place to visit for a short break or longer holiday.Private fishing is available on the north bank of the River Nadder at no additional cost, subject to guests having a fishing license and their own equipment.
There are plenty of paths that can be used to explore the city of Salisbury, so you can go walking.
Or if you fancy some retail therapy there are plenty of small shops to look at. Nadder Barn is perfect for a family looking to relax in the Wiltshire countryside, and explore somewhere new.
About the location

The medieval city of Salisbury is the jewel in Wiltshire's crown, dominated by the majestic 13th century Gothic cathedral. The cathedral offers 750 years of history including Britain's tallest spire, the world's best preserved original Magna Carta, and Europe's oldest working clock. The surrounding cathedral close, full of architectural gems, is bordered by the River Avon and ancient Chilmark stone walls. The city offers historic streets with charming half-timbered buildings, traditional pubs, characterful shops and a twice-weekly market. Or, stroll along the Town Path and take in the awe-inspiring views across the water meadows towards the cathedral. After dark, there's a thriving arts scene, including one of the country's leading repertory theatres, a lively arts centre, cinema and a wealth of independent restaurants. Should you want to explore further afield then a short drive from Salisbury takes you to Stonehenge, the National Trust's Stourhead House and gardens, majestic Wilton House, as well as the New Forest National Park, and the Hampshire and Dorset coasts. There's so much to see and do in Salisbury and surrounding area that your only concern will be finding the time to do it all!
