  • “Fantastic location and accommodation and I would recommend it to anyone, and you do get your exercise steps in going from car to Folly and up and down the stairs its not for the unfit.”


    As I have already said lovey in every aspect we sat out on patio every morning having breakfast watching the squirrels and birds in the trees, and at night sitting next to pond having a beer after a hard day sight seeing watching the stars brilliant. The owners left lovely welcome pack tea-coffee bread bacon and lovely home made jams all very nice. We loved are stay at the Folly the only problem we had was we stayed in July 2021 when temperatures where +29 degrees most days and the bed room gets very hot it has no windows and as a mezzanine floor in the apex of the roof heat rises so very warm at night we had two fans running every night "sorry if Colin's electric bill is higher than normal" There is one other thing that would have been nice in that the folly is ideal for romantic holiday it is lovely but in the lounge there are only two single seats we felt a nice sofa you can cuddle in on and watch a little TV at night would have been nice. I have no negatives about the folly we loved our holiday if you want a quiet stay in fantastic location with great accommodation you should try the Folly. regards Mike

    Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear issues regarding the heat. This will be passed onto the owner but we do hope that you were still able to enjoy your stay otherwise. We would love to welcome you back anytime in the future. Property Owner

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.
