Salisbury, Wiltshire Cottages
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. The property is set within 1 mile of Salisbury, so you have a wealth of shops and restuarants on your doorstep and excellent place to visit for a short break or longer holiday.

Nadder Barn is a detached onversion 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 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 2 ¼ 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 and the south Dorset coastline (a UNESCO World Heritage site) are also easily reachable.
"My wife and I recently stayed here for a two week holiday. Nadder Barn is excellent in all respects. Careful thought and attention to detail throughout has been made by our hosts. Nothing was to much bother and we were made to feel very welcome. It is very comfortable and has been finished to a very high standard. It is secluded behind the main gate for the owners property and access river at the bottom of the garden for fishing was great. There is a small patio area as well. Weather permitting! The barn is ideally situated as a base for day trips to Salisbury,Portsmouth and Southampton. It is close to public transport( buses and trains) I would not hesitate to recommend this place for a stay."Guests' review on TripAdvisor 2017-09-16
"Tucked away from sight yet within really easy access of the city by car or by rural public footpath, this is a truly exceptional barn conversion, well appointed in every way and a delight to stay in with everything seemingly catered for. Such a high standard of cleanliness, furnishings and décor. Can't recommend it highly enough. Go there! Sleeps 4 easily and properly!"Guests' review on TripAdvisor 2017-06-18
"A lovely property. All our needs taken care of. Owners friendly and on hand but not intrusive. Well placed to visit all the areas many attractions. Salisbury itself, Stonehenge, beautiful countryside and villages. Delighted by the chance to catch brown trout on the Nadder which really is at the bottom of the lovely garden. A first class hideaway that I would, and have recommended to anyone."Guests' review on TripAdvisor 2017-06-06
