The property

Nestled on the grounds of the owner’s farmhouse is this gorgeous semi-detached barn conversion set in a delightful rural location near to the village of West Knoyle, and resting on the Wiltshire side of the border with Dorset.

Providing a beautifully-presented interior throughout, this property offers a charming retreat for couples or a small family or group with two bedrooms and some lovely shared areas.

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 a board-game 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, around the Wiltshire Downs Area of National Beauty, Blackmore Vale or Cranborne Chase, as well as opportunities for cycling and horse-riding.

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, Sherborne with its Saxon Abbey, ancient Stonehenge, the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury or regal Bath?

Providing a wondrous spot to enjoy quality time with your loved ones, Keepers Cottage is a fantastic choice for your next break.

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.
