  • “The interior of the house is great and as described.”

    The owners are very nice. The amenities and availability of films, music, access to Netflix makes the evenings at the cottage even more comfortable.

    The owners are very nice. The amenities and availability of films, music, access to Netflix makes the evenings at the cottage even more comfortable. However, this house is really next to a road where you can hear every car going by during the day and at night, so unfortunately not a very comfortable sleep ... The patio is quite small and next to garages, so even to enjoy the afternoon sun you are next to the garage and next to a busy road.

    We are very sorry your sleep was disturbed during your stay at the Nest on August Bank Holiday weekend. Our local B road has an 18 ton limit and is usually quiet, but that weekend was very busy. Traffic heading for the west country and cutting through to avoid the hold-ups on the A303 at Stonehenge, on top of that a diversion through the village was in place due to roadworks on the A36, which was unfortunate but beyond our control. We have taken your remarks about the patio on board. Property Owner

The property

Warminster 8 miles.

Hidden deep within the Wiltshire countryside in the conservation area of the picturesque village of Chitterne you will find the pet-friendly Nest.

A full of character converted detached stone and brick stable/hayloft, set in the grounds of the owner’s 17th century listed house.

With its old stable door, exposed beams and a modern kitchen extension, and its setting adjacent to rolling fields and farm tracks, the Nest provides a perfect romantic getaway retreat and a base for exploration of the area.

After a day of exploring relax in the cosy sitting room and unwind as you watch a movie on the TV.

Whip up a delicious meal in the chic grey and copper fully fitted kitchen/diner on the contemporary electric hob and oven, and enjoy at the pine dining table.

Step out onto the patio with your significant other to embrace the fresh clean Wiltshire air, enjoy the lush green setting and allow yourself to unwind.

In the evening be amazed by the sunsets and the huge star-studded romantic night skies.

Venture up the staircase and retire to the bright and airy king-sized bedroom, beautifully decorated with white furnishings and complemented by a stylish grey wall to floor tiled en-suite shower room.

From the Nest the walker, rider, cyclist, naturalist or historian can access large tracts of uncultivated chalkland on the many ancient tracks, by-ways, bridle paths and footpaths.

Spend your days exploring the magnificent countryside of the Salisbury Plain, the largest uncultivated area of chalkland in Europe thanks to over 100 years of military ownership and use.

Wander the many chalk tracks and experience the huge skies, the feeling of space, the uninterrupted views for mile after mile of rolling downs.

The Salisbury Plain is an area rich in archaeological heritage, home to rare butterflies, wild flowers, birds and many historical monuments.

The land is peppered with old burial mounds, romano/british villages, boundary ditches, field systems and hill forts and criss-crossed with ancient trackways, and drove roads used for thousands of years by our ancestors.

Immerse yourself further in the ancient past of this area by visiting Stonehenge, only 7.5 miles away and associated sites at Woodhenge and Durrington Walls.

Follow it up by visiting the even older stone circle at Avebury.

Take a trip to Old Sarum iron age fort, forerunner of the medieval city of Salisbury, a few miles away.

Visit awe-inspiring Salisbury Cathedral in its beautiful cathedral-close setting.

Take a look inside some of Salisbury’s original timber-framed old buildings such as the Haunch of Venison pub, the foyer at the Odeon Cinema and the outdoor shop in Queen Street where medieval interiors have been preserved.

Other interesting architecture nearby can be found at Longleat House set in glorious surroundings, with its Deer Park, Safari Park and Hedge Maze or Stourhead with wonderful landscaped gardens.

Take a trip further afield to visit the Roman Baths, Jane Austen Centre and Costume Museum at Bath.

Experience the very best that Wiltshire has to offer with a romantic escape to The Nest at the Round House.

About the location

WARMINSTER

Frome 16 miles

The delightful Wiltshire market town of Warminster can be found to the south west of Salisbury Plain, 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 Warminster 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. Warminster boasts three supermarkets, many restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, several antique shops, a museum, a theatre, a magnificent park with a lake, skatepark, tennis courts and a nature reserve. The award-winning Warminster Maltings who still malt barley the traditional way for the beer industry, do occasional tours for visitors and cream teas in Summer. 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.
