    “Emily and Mike are very helpful and friendly hosts with their main objective to make your holiday special”

    - Mr Jones, May 2019

The property

A gorgeous, semi-detached, single-storey, barn conversion, one of two holiday cottages on site.

Nestling in the grounds of the owner’s farmhouse, in a rural location close to the village of West Knoyle and set on the Wiltshire side of the border with Dorset, this is a wonderful holiday cottage.

Beautifully presented throughout, this charming holiday cottage offers couples, or small family groups, a really comfortable and cosy holiday retreat.

Inside, you’ll find a delightful sitting room with bi-folding doors overlooking the nearby farmland, with a small sunny patio offering a super place to enjoy refreshments whilst planning your day out.

Alternatively, when the evening chill sends you indoors, you can snuggle up with a good book or take in your favourite TV show in front of the warming woodburner-style, flame-effect gas fire.

Both pretty bedrooms have en-suite facilities, so there’s no queuing up for the bathroom in the morning!

Plus there’s a small but very well-fitted kitchen, equipped with everything you need to prepare delicious meals.

There are lovely walks straight from the door whilst a visit to the nearby Bison Farm, offering 30 acres of oak woodland walks and a chance to try out bison snacks should you wish, makes for a wonderful day out!

Within an easy drive you can take in the stunning house, safari park and gardens of Longleat, the National Trust’s Stourhead House, and award-winning gardens.

Alternatively, why not explore the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury, ancient Stonehenge, the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury or regal Bath?

In fact there’s so much to do, a week isn’t nearly long enough!

A lovely rural holiday cottage providing a wonderful year round touring base.

Note: The cottage is next to Ref. 20754, together they sleep 6.

About the location


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.
