    My husband and I stayed here for a short break. The Folly was easy to find, following the instructions given. Clare and Colin were very welcoming, they kindly supplied us with some provisions such as bacon, eggs, milk, bread, butter, fresh fruit and some delicious homemade jam. The grounds the Folly are set in are beautiful (as is the main house gardens). It is a stunning building, with patio seating supplied to sit and admire the garden.

    My husband and I stayed here for a short break. The Folly was easy to find, following the instructions given. Clare and Colin were very welcoming, they kindly supplied us with some provisions such as bacon, eggs, milk, bread, butter, fresh fruit and some delicious homemade jam. The grounds the Folly are set in are beautiful (as is the main house gardens). It is a stunning building, with patio seating supplied to sit and admire the garden. The kitchen has everything you need. The lounge has some very comfortable seating, a log burner, writing desk and some lovely art work. Here there are three windows that look over the garden and beyond to the fields and Mere in the distance. There is a spiral staircase that takes you up to the bedroom and bathroom, both tastefully decorated. The bed is very comfortable, but we found the bathroom a tad on the narrow side, the shower is good to. We had a lovely stay here. It was so peaceful, to sit and read and listen to the sheep, birds and the sound of the wind in the trees. Would highly recommend The Folly.

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.
