Graden House is within two hours of London, by car or train, and makes an excellent base for exploring this scenic and highly sought after corner of southern England on the borders of Wiltshire and Dorset. The surrounding countryside falls within the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is dotted with picturesque villages, many with welcoming country pubs. Visitor attractions are plentiful, the cathedral city of Salisbury, Georgian Bath, Stonehenge, the New Forest National Park and the South Dorset World Heritage coast all being within an hour's drive.
Tisbury itself has a lot to recommend it. Being the largest village in Wiltshire's Nadder Valley, it has a useful range of friendly, independent shops, tea rooms and three pubs. All are just a few minutes' walk from the house. The medieval, thatched Tithe barn on the edge of the village is one of the largest in the country and in the churchyard by the 12th century church you'll find a 4,000 year-old yew tree. Tisbury also has a very useful rail link to London (Waterloo) via Salisbury.
