Forming part of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the surrounding countryside can justly claim to be some of the finest in southern England. Walkers, riders and cyclists are particularly well served by the multitude of footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes which run along the valley while a walk up to the old Ox Drove on the chalk ridge above will be richly rewarded by the sweeping views across the surrounding downland as far as the Dorset coast in the distance.
If you're travelling by car, there is an almost limitless number of attractions to see. Within 30 to 40 minutes' drive are Salisbury with its superb cathedral, Wilton House, Stonehenge, Longleat and The New Forest. A little further, the Georgian city of Bath and Dorset's World Heritage coastline are within comfortable reach for a day's outing.
"A wonderful weekend with friends. We went for country walks, played swing ball in the fields, made use of the BBQ and loved lounging in the garden. The cottage is stunning as is the local area and the people are so friendly. We will be back!"Lydia Graham 2018-06-08
