Salisbury, Wiltshire Cottages
From the moment you drive through the gates, you will find it hard to believe that you are only one mile from the centre of this bustling city. Set within the grounds of the owners' lovely home and dating back 100 years, Nadder Barn still retains its exposed beams, original 'owl slits' and old brick walls. The slightly rustic interior has been beautifully restored and now offers well lit, stylishly furnished, contemporary living spaces with exceptional attention to detail. French windows from the main living area open out onto a paved patio area, from where a large lawned garden, shared with the owners, stretches down to the River Nadder. Being so close to the city centre, you have a wealth of shops and restuarants on your doorstep making this an excellent place to visit for a short break or longer holiday.
Private fishing is available on the north bank.
Spacious, double height, open-plan Living Area with two sofas, wall-mounted 40 HD TV and DVD player.

Nadder Barn is a detached conversion hidden away behind high gates, next to a handsome, Georgian style house, with a large garden stretching down to the river.
The setting is very peaceful yet only a mile from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Salisbury. Within a few minutes' drive are the city's magnificent 13th century cathedral, surrounded by the largest Cathedral Close in England, its museums and historic houses and an abundance of shops, pubs and restaurants located around its ancient market square. Visitors may prefer to take the more leisurely, scenic two mile walk into town along the banks of the Nadder, and across the water meadows, re-tracing the steps of the distinguished 17th century poet George Herbert's journey from Bemerton to Salisbury Cathedral.
Just a few minutes' drive from Nadder Barn in the other direction, is Wilton House, a magnificent stately home in the Palladian style, set in 21 acres of parkland and with a world famous art collection. Further afield, but still within 45 minutes' drive are a number of 'must-see' visitor attractions, including Stonehenge, Longleat and Stourhead. For a day's outing, the unique landscape of the New Forest National Park and Dorset's Jurassic coastline (a UNESCO World Heritage site) are also easily reachable.
