About the location
Frome 6.3 miles; Warminster 7 miles; Bath 20 miles; Salisbury 27 miles.
This attractive village lies on the Wiltshire/Somerset/Dorset border and provides easy access to many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has all the amenities you could need with a community shop, a pub, Post Office and churches. Nearby is the market town of Warminster situated at the head of the lush Wylye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Well known for its military connections, the old charm of the town centre has been preserved, where you can still find quaint houses and inns built from the local Chilmark and Bath stone. Nearby there are lovely walks in abundance, whilst no visit to this area would be complete without exploring the stunning house, gardens and safari park at Longleat. Alternatively, visits to the magnificent cities of Bath and Salisbury, or sites of Stourhead and Stonehenge are not to be missed. This lovely area is full of surprises, providing a great base for your excursions.
