    “We lovede out stay here.”

    Colin could not have been more welcoming or helpful, and Care's home made marmalade was as good as we hoped. A perfect romatic hideaway for two. The kitchen was particularly well appointed, which is not always the case, and was a real bonus as I like to ciik.

About the location

MERE

Shaftesbury 7 miles.

A delightful country town of old stone cottages set in a stunning conservation area, on the borders of Wiltshire, Dorset and Somerset. This small, lively community is well served by a good variety of local shops and ancient inns, with much of the area to the north of the town designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ideal for walking and taking in the breathtaking views, the town is also well placed for exploring numerous National Trust attractions and historic houses. A visit to stunning Stourhead House and gardens, only 2 miles away, is not to be missed, while Longleat House and the ancient hilltop town of Shaftesbury featured in the Hovis adverts, are also close by. Stonehenge, Wilton House, Salisbury and the Dorset coast are all easily accessible by car, providing much to see and do for a variety of tastes.

Note: The bedroom is accessed via antique spiral staircase and there is not suitable for those with limited mobility, babies and children.
Note: The beautiful views afforded by the property mean that there is an incline from the parking area to the front door, either via a sloping path or steps. Those with limited mobility may find the property unsuitable.
