  • "This is a lovely accomodation for two people."

    The place is like a very large hotel room with a kitchen area. There and everything we needed although a dishwasher would have been good but there was no room for one really. The only criticism we had was the sofa was really uncomfortable, the owners need to buy a new one. The location was beautiful right in the river Avon and it was very quiet. The gardens were lovely. We walked into Salisbury which was a couple of miles away. The pavement along the main road was a bit overgrown which made it difficult at times cos the traffic is fast along the main road. But after a while it widens and you can walk through the park for the last part. Salisbury is beautiful and we recommend the museum cafe for lunch. It's easy to get to Stonehenge, New Forest (approx 35 mins drive away) and Winchester (45 mins). We walked in the Nadder valley which is beautiful and only 20-30 mins away. Ester gave us some nice walking maps. To eat we would recommend the New Forest Inn, Rick Steins in Winchester, The Greyhound Inn in Wilton, museum cafe in Salisbury. The Green Dragon is walking distance away from Avon Turn, the food is ok. Overall a lovely holiday and very nice owners Chris and Ester.

    Mr HumphreysSep 2019

  • "A Truly wonderful setting ,a great place to stay and to chill out ."

    Sitting by the River Avon in the afternoon and evening was just really wonderful for us . There is a lot do and see in the surrounding area and plenty of NT properties to visit. We had marvellous weather so for us it was an extra bonus.

    Mr StockdaleSep 2019

  • "Superb accommodation - space, facilities, welcome, immediate environment with beautiful garden and surroundings, as well as being really well-located for exploring the whole area around Salisbury and beyond."

    Mrs NuttallSep 2019

  • "This delightful barn is situated in a gorgeous tranquil setting with great views from the feature window."

    Well equipped home and kitchen. Plenty of wildlife around as well as 5 pairs of swans on the river. Visited Salisbury, Stonehenge, Kingston Lacy and Longleat Safari park whilst we were there.

  • "The holiday was truly relaxing the barn was so peaceful and quite."

    Mrs GriffithsAug 2019

  • "We really enjoyed our time at Avon Turn Barn."

    The country setting is amazing so close to Salisbury. The owners were friendly and helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending it.

    Mrs SimpsonJun 2019

  • "We loved the location of the accommodation."

    As wildlife enthusiasts we liked being able to sit by the river. We saw so many birds, including barn owl and kingfisher, and saw deer, hare, wood mice and water voles. The owners are very friendly but not at all intrusive. Perfect for us.

    Ms KiddJun 2019

  • "The barn is in a great location, about three miles south of Salisbury, on a peaceful stretch of the River Avon."

    It's perfect for 2 - open plan, cosy, well equipped and tastefully decorated. Ideally situated for trips into the New Forest (about 10-15 minutes drive) and surrounding area with the added bonus of being able to walk to a decent pub. There's an outdoor patio area, surrounded by a lovely walled garden and the owners allow use of a decked area next to the river when they are not using it (they live in the adjoining large house - very helpful but unobtrusive. You get the impression they really want guests to enjoy the barn which was built 2/3 years ago). We spent a week there in October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "The cottage and grounds are excellent."

    Swans on the river, pheasant in the grounds make it seem surreal. Nice and comfortable.

  • "...a very beautiful and tranquil place for a holiday, and an utter delight for us"


    Mr & Mrs Piggott

  • "We have just returned from a week at Avon Turn Barn."

    What a wonderful place. The accommodation is new and spotless and the beautiful feature window looks over the gardens and the grazing sheep. Esther and Chris have thought of everything to make this a comfortable stay. Milk in the fridge, coffee and tea, a bottle of wine, fresh flowers. The bed is really comfortable and we took to having breakfast in bed, whilst watching the morning news and planning our day - pure luxury. Although we ate out a fair bit it was great to have our own kitchen facilities too - again, everything has been thought of. We had some fantastic walks and Chris was really helpful with suggestions of where we might enjoy. If you go to Salisbury cathedral try and get on a guided tour, it's free and makes it so much more interesting than wandering around on your own. I enjoyed this holiday so much more than sitting on a beach for a week, it was an absolute treat.

About the location


Andover 17 miles; Southampton 23 miles

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!
