    “Quiet relaxing time spoiled only by the atrocious weather.”

The property

Positioned at the end of its own private driveway within the owner's Bison and Elk farm, enveloped by Wiltshire and Dorset countryside, is Bush Farm Annexe.

It is the ideal escape to the country for a couple looking for somewhere to enjoy lots of walking and exploring, with a homely base to return to.

Rustle up something delicious in the compact yet amply equipped kitchen and enjoy a lovely night in at the dining table with a bottle of wine to wash it down with.

Later, move through to the lounge and unwind into your evening by the warmth of the woodburning stove before retiring to the double bedroom.

The L-shape conservatory showcases fabulous views over the wildlife pond, where you can sit with a drink and take in your surroundings as you discuss plans for the days ahead with your loved one.

A warm summer's day will invite you out onto the patio for a chilled drink and you are welcome to visit the owner's 'American Indian Tribe' museum on-site, as well as his farm shop and greet the Bison and Elk within the grounds.

You are in an enviable position for lovely walks at Cranborne Chase and Wiltshire Downs AONB or on the Blackmore Vale, as well as opportunities for cycling and stargazing at night.

Venture up to Shearwater Lake on the Longleat Estate for a chance to partake in activities such as fishing and sailing as well as walls through open woodland, before exploring the Safari Park and stately home.

Travel further afield and explore the Roman city of Bath or head in the opposite direction to visit Salisbury Cathedral.

A lovely getaway to the countryside.

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.
