  • “The tastefully furnished Folly is situated in a slightly elevated position approached by an illuminated meandering path from the parking area within a charming tranquil private Estate surrounded by beautiful gardens, abundance of wildlife and countryside, a short walk from the village of Mere where we also enjoyed several hearty meals at the George Inn.”

    Watching the deer and pheasants especially during breakfast was a real treat and hunted for the allusive hedgehog. A Welcome Pack stocked with local produce and beautiful home made marmalade and raspberry jam by Clare was a surprise. The level of cleanliness was extremely high. The antique style metal winding staircase may be slightly challenging for some people. We found both Colin and Clare to be very proud, warm and endearing owners making our stay very special. Our Yorkie, Poppy also enjoyed the freedom of the Estate. There are may exciting places on the doorstep and enjoyed visiting Mere's own Castle Walk, Heavens Gate at Longleat, Stonehenge, Salisbury with its Cathedral, The Bratton White Horse at Westbury, The Caen Hill Locks at Devizes, Bath, Glastonbury (The Tor) and for those who like to venture further afield, Poole and Sandbanks with their lovely waterfront bars, cafes and restaurants and white sandy beach.

About the location

MERE

Shaftesbury 7 miles.

A delightful country town of old stone cottages set in a stunning conservation area, on the borders of Wiltshire, Dorset and Somerset. This small, lively community is well served by a good variety of local shops and ancient inns, with much of the area to the north of the town designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ideal for walking and taking in the breathtaking views, the town is also well placed for exploring numerous National Trust attractions and historic houses. A visit to stunning Stourhead House and gardens, only 2 miles away, is not to be missed, while Longleat House and the ancient hilltop town of Shaftesbury featured in the Hovis adverts, are also close by. Stonehenge, Wilton House, Salisbury and the Dorset coast are all easily accessible by car, providing much to see and do for a variety of tastes.
