  • "A lovely accomodation in a quiet and peaceful area."

    Views of open green space, seating from an elevated hilltop and a running river with ducks, swans and other wildlife makes this place a relaxing stay. Ample space for cars and easy access to areas like Stonehenge and Salisbury nearby. The owner was attentive, commincative and helpful to put ones mind at rest for any issues related to our stay.

  • "We enjoyed our week long stay."

    The property was very high quality with plenty of extras designed to make everything easy. Very clean and tidy which is essential in these troubled times to bolster guests confidence in staying away.

  • "A fantastic property in a stunning location."

    Excellent facilities and tons of space, both inside and out. Highly recommended for a large family or a group holiday, plenty of parking space and the host is very friendly and happy to help where needed. Despite the rural location the property is very easy to access, just seconds from the main road and 5 minutes from the A303. Great for exploring Salisbury (about 15 mins away by car). We arranged an Ocado delivery on the first night which made things very simple, but there is a medium-sized Tesco in Amesbury and larger supermarkets (Tesco and Waitrose) in Salisbury itself.

    The house was spotless and beautiful and the setting was amazing. Our children loved the garden and seeing otters and swans in the river. Would highly recommend. We also enjoyed visits to Longleat and Stonehenge and nearby pubs, the Swan and the Bridge Inn had fantastic food

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!
