  • "The Cartbarn is a beautifully restored barn."

    Everything in it is of the highest quality. There is no using old things to fill gaps. Curtains, cushions and sofas all lovely and top quality. In the bedrooms white linen sheets and pillowcases and goose down duvet made it hard to get out of bed and the fabulous view was so relaxing. Upstairs is very spacious, light and airy with a giant bed and roomy en suites in both bedrooms and lots of storage for clothes . Claire had left exuberant jugs of flowers on the chest of drawers in both rooms. In the kitchen there was not a single utensil lacking during our stay and a plentiful supply of tea towels, j cloths, household roll etc made for an easy life. The garden at the Cartbarn is lovely, very private with good garden furniture and parasol with plenty of parking that doesn’t overshadow the garden. You could not have nicer owners, so welcoming and generous , leaving some delicious goodies and carrying down a special garden chair for my sister who is disabled. Both Claire and William made us so welcome in an unfussy and unobtrusive way. The Cartbarn nestles into glorious countryside with a mass of lovely walks whilst being only a very short drive into the village with an interesting little high street, everything from specialist food shops to the co-op, not forgetting a very good affordable boutique and a main line station to London. We both felt refreshed and uplifted at the end of our week. It was very hard to leave….

  • "We had a wonderful stay at the Cart Barn!"

    We were two couples travelling from Canada visiting family in the area and found the property perfect for our needs. We found the property very well equipped. The owner is very easy to work with and accommodated any requests we had. The property although secluded is minutes away from Tisbury and the other surrounding towns. Thank you so much for an awesome experience!

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at The Cart Barn. It's lovely to hear that you all had a wonderful time visiting family close by, we do hope you managed to do a bit of site seeing also during your stay.

  • "We loved our seven day break at the Cart Barn."

    The clever open plan design maximises the space on the ground floor and the large windows ensure that the main area is beautifully lit (even during a horribly grey February). The upstairs rooms are also very well planned and, like the living areas, benefit from stylish furniture and tasteful artworks. The location is lovely, close to Tisbury on the Wiltshire/Dorset border.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are delighted that you loved the property and its location. We hope we can welcome you back again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

    The fresh flowers and cake were appreciated together with advice on places to visit. The bedrooms were light and airy given the high temperatures we had. The setting is very rural and idyllic with a beautiful enclosed garden enjoyed by the dog. There are very pleasant countryside walks from The Cart Barn which is perfect for anyone seeking tranquillity with Salisbury, Stourhead, Shaftesbury and other tourist attractions not far away.

  • "The cottage is in a delightful setting and very secluded."

    Masses of natural light through the windows, and the kitchen was well appointed. The garden was safe for a toddler under supervision. The main things marring our visit was a 13.5 tog duvet in the height of summer, and both sets of settees were very uncomfortable. The corner unit would struggle to seat two people, let alone the four adults the cottage caters for. The owners were very welcoming. If the comfort issues were addressed I would certainly come back.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The settee is being replaced however it will be of a similar size due to the size and layout of the barn. The other points are being reviewed. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

    Lovely fresh flowers eggs and even picked fresh blackberries when they found out I had a head cold to provide vitamin c for recovery. Speedy attention when the boiler cut out The only things I would say would be the mattresses quite hard and summer weight duvets be available and the couch in the TV area uncomfortable needs new padding for seating other wise Will everything wonderful. Will come back again

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at the Old Cart Barn."

    The conversion has all been done to a great standard with bespoke and quirky features and with a lovely homely rustic feel. It is well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The secluded garden is so peaceful and relaxing with just the sounds of the countryside and we were fortunate to have lovely warm weather to enjoy most of our meals there outside. Claire and William the owners were there to greet us and were so knowledgable and interesting to talk with about the local area. They left fresh milk and eggs from their hens for us on arrival. During our stay we really appreciated their quick response to resolve a hot water issue, one of the benefits of having the owners close by on hand. We would love to book this cottage again in the future.

    Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at The Cart Barn. It's lovely to hear how much you enjoyed the barn and the area and such amazing walks from your door to. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards Hideaways. Property Owner

  • "The Cart Barn is wonderful."

    In a secluded spot and surrounded by countryside, it has been restored to a very high standard and has all you could possibly need - the owners have thought of everything . From the gorgeous linen with luxurious pillows and duvets to the lovely curtains and stylish cushions on the sofas. The owner is unobtrusive whilst being at the neighbouring farm and on hand if needed. The area is lovely and unspoilt and there are lots of footpaths straight from the door. This is a very “high end” property and our week here was a joy - we have booked again for next year!

  • "We had a super relaxing time at the delightful, spacious & quiet 'Cart Barn'."

    A rather quirky & pleasant place to stay for the much needed peace & quiet we were looking for. All very clean & nice upon arrival with a lovely fresh cake to welcome us. The kitchen was very well equipped which included a microwave, dishwasher & washing machine & being open plan made it feel very light, spacious & airy. Both bedrooms felt roomy with luxury superking size beds with quality bedding & both en-suites well equipped & clean. Easy off road parking for 2 vehicles. Nearby walks were welcoming with our small dog with the country lanes being non existent from traffic & lovely views from the somewhat rural location. Claire (the owner) popped in to greet us & was very lovely, friendly & welcoming. We would definitely recommend The Cart Barn to anyone looking for tranquility.

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.
