Tisbury, Wiltshire Cottages
The Old Coach House is a detached period stone building situated at the top end of Tisbury high street. Tisbury is a lovely little busy place with tearooms and deli, and it even has a train station (you can travel from Waterloo to Tisbury in about an hour and a half). The property is comfortable and spacious - it is a reverse living style of accommodation, and it lies in the grounds of the owner's property. The beamed sitting/dining room is located upstairs, where a bay window has been constructed to make the most of views towards the Nadder Valley. The Old Coach is particularly suitable for those with limited mobility as it has a stair lift allowing access upstairs from the ground floor double bedroom. The property is a converted coach house, situated in a great location with great views, and it has been recently redecorated both inside and out.

The Old Coach House stands near the top of Tisbury's attractive village High Street. Tisbury's shops, pubs, leisure centre and railway station, with service direct to London (Waterloo), cater for all immediate needs while the beautiful cathedral of Salisbury is only a half hour car or 20 minute train journey.
Surrounding Tisbury, on the borders of Wiltshire and Dorset is some of the most unspoilt but perhaps least well known countryside in the South of England - ideal for exploring on foot or by car. Visit the ruins of Old Wardour Castle (English Heritage) or take a walk by nearby Fonthill Lake - see 'Additional Pictures'.
There are many attractive villages with well cared for cottages of stone and thatch, and a good selection of pubs, including the nearby Beckford Arms at Fonthill Gifford, with appetising food menus.
"Judging by the books and furnishings on the premises, Mr & Mrs Barker are a very cultured couple. The cottage had everything we needed in generous supply and we were very comfortable throughout. Tisbury is a village with every facility a visitor could need (Fish & Chip shop, Chinese Takeaway, 3 pubs and many shops) and is a marvellous centre for touring the area. Stonehenge, Winchester, Salisbury, Dorchester, Shaftesbury and Sherborne are in easy reach. Altogether, we had a very memorable time during our stay at The Old Coach House."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2015-10-02
"Lovely welcome when we arrived with a nice cup of tea/coffee. Shown around coach house which is very clean and comfortable with everything you need and more. Had phone call half way through stay to make sure all was okay, which we felt was a nice touch. Right in the middle of Tisbury so everything very close by, beautiful walks and friendly people. Pubs seem to open and close at odd times so need to check them out if you like a drink in the evening. Really enjoyed our stay away from the hustle and bustle of normal every day life."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2015-07-26
