    This was perfect for our needs and just a really love setting. The owners were directly on hand if needed but left us to our own devices. We loved the Cart Barn and it was brilliant for two couples.

The property

The Cart Barn is a stylish and imaginative conversion from a former cart shed that sleeps four within two bedrooms, set in the peaceful surrounds of beautiful, rolling countryside, this is a breath-taking place where you truly unwind and relax.

The Barn is nestled in an attractively landscaped garden beyond a line of pleached pear trees. With plenty of contemporary style the interior offers an uncluttered and practical living space.

The glass fronted entrance, created from the original bays of the cart shed, is a particularly special feature of the building and floods the ground floor living area with light.

In recent years, The Cart Barn has been featured in The Times ’50 Best Cottages’ in recognition of the exceptional holiday experience it offers!

The two bedrooms consist of two super king size beds, both with ensuites.

Downstairs, the open plan layout is very airy, and showcases very modern kitchen and living rooms.

Outside there is a large garden with a patio and outdoor table and chairs which is to be made the most of in the summer months.

Situated in the small village of Ridge and close to the village of Chilmark.

The nearby character village of Chilmark sits on the Wiltshire side of the border with Dorset, two miles from the bustling small town of Tisbury, while Chilmark boasts numerous stone and thatched cottages, many made from local Chilmark stone. The Cart Barn is the perfect base from which to go and experience historical British landmarks such as Stonehenge and Longleat, with it providing a relaxing in which to enjoy a holiday break.
