    “Lovely cottage, in a excellent location, ideal for visits to Salisbury, Winchester, places of interest and for walking.”

    Enjoyed walks in the ancient woodland, across the track from the cottage and saw deer there most days. The cottage was thoughtfully furnished to a high standard and there were many additional touches, fresh flowers, homemade fairy cakes, tea/coffee and milk in the fridge, as well as blankets and toiletries (something you would only expect to have if it was a B&B, not self catering) ...

    Enjoyed walks in the ancient woodland, across the track from the cottage and saw deer there most days. The cottage was thoughtfully furnished to a high standard and there were many additional touches, fresh flowers, homemade fairy cakes, tea/coffee and milk in the fridge, as well as blankets and toiletries (something you would only expect to have if it was a B&B, not self catering) The track to the property was better than we thought it would be on arrival and this track had some maintenance while we were staying (pot holes filled). The ceiling heights upstairs were a little challenging (and we are only 5’ 6”) the shower would be a little snug to a larger frame of a person, downstairs we found not enough heating, it was cold in the evenings, We were disappointed that the outside area was not as private as we would have liked.

The property

Tucked away in remote ancient woodlands on the border of Wiltshire and Hampshire, nine miles from the historic cathedral city of Salisbury, is this charming, detached timbered cottage.

The property is one of two holiday cottages on the owner’s farm, which spans 24 acres of land and is home to cattle, horses, sheep and llamas.

The cottage has been thoughtfully created as a special, romantic holiday escape for two people, and the interior has been finished to a very high standard, with luxury furnishings throughout, creating a contemporary yet sumptuous style.

There is a well-equipped, open plan ground floor living space and an enclosed patio garden, whilst upstairs, the light and spacious eaves bedroom, together with a superb en-suite shower room, ensures a comfortable and restful night's sleep.

Immediately outside you can walk between the ancient oaks, see horses, cattle and butterflies and possibly catch sight of the deer that call the woodland home.

You have the choice of exploring the 2000 acres of woodland and copses on foot, or use the well-marked cycle trails.

Outside the woods, a short drive takes you to the celebrated city of Salisbury, where you can spend a few hours marvelling at the stunning cathedral, enjoy browsing the bustling shopping centre and twice weekly market, or just relax with a drink by the river.

Further afield you can enjoy a visit to the New Forest National Park, ancient Stonehenge, or the historic city of Winchester.

This timeless holiday haven is a wonderful base for couples to spend quality time together in an elegant rural holiday cottage.

Note: This cottage is adjacent to Ref: 925646, together they sleep 8.

About the location

BENTLEY WOODS

Farley 1 mile; West Winterslow 1.5 miles; Salisbury 9 miles; New Forest National Park 10 miles; Stockbridge 14 miles.

Bentley Woods is a 2000-acre woodland nature reserve, designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, which sits on the Wiltshire side of the border with Hampshire. Unspoilt and protected, the woods have many clearings where all kinds of wildlife, notably butterflies, can be frequently viewed. There are wonderful walks locally and if you’re lucky, you might chance upon some of the deer who roam the beautiful woodland glades. The nearest villages to the woods are Farley, Pitton and Winterslow, which all offer handy local facilities and amenities. Within nine miles you can spend a day out in the stunning medieval city of Salisbury, where a visit to the majestic cathedral is a must, boasting Europe’s highest cathedral spire. Alternatively, stroll through the wonderful Cathedral Close which boasts many picturesque ancient buildings, then take in the vibrant shopping centre and twice weekly market, or treat yourselves to a meal at one of the town’s many restaurants. You may also decide to enjoy an event at the Salisbury Playhouse. Within easy reach is the New Forest National Park, home of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, and well known for its swathes of woodland, purple heather and wild ponies and cattle. With Stonehenge, the attractive Hampshire town of Stockbridge and Winchester all an easy drive away, there is much to see and do within easy reach of this lovely rural setting.
