Keepers Cottage And The Cider Barn

Choose between these two immaculate, ground floor, semi-detached barn conversions located in the Wiltshire countryside, outside the village of West Knoyle. Look forward to curling up on the sofas to enjoy a care-free evening catching up with your favourite shows, reading or playing games, or use them as a springboard to explore the area around. There are lovely walks straight from your door through idyllic Wiltshire countryside, or you are within an easy reach of the stunning house, safari park and gardens of Longleat, the National Trust's Stourhead House and Gardens and Bruton’s world class gallery, Hauser and Wirth. Alternatively, why not explore the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury, buzzing Frome, 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! Both cottages provide a wonderful year-round touring base for exploring all that this picturesque region has to offer.

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.
