Tisbury, Wiltshire Cottages
Found at the top end of Tisbury high street, The Old Coach House is a charming, detached former coach house built of stone. Lying in the grounds of the owners' property, you'll find it incredibly spacious once you step inside. The living accommodation is 'upside down' so you'll come across the bedrooms on the ground floor, making it suitable for guests with limited mobility (there's a stair lift from the ground floor to the first floor). Upstairs is a beamed living room with exposed stone walls and a pretty bay window providing views over the picturesque Nadder Valley.
Tisbury itself is a lovely and vibrant community 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).
Spacious entrance hallway.
Bedroom One with super king size bed (6ft), antique wardrobe, antique chest of drawers, access into a small garden room and Ensuite Bathroom/WC with a shower attachment mounted above the bath.
Spacious Living/Dining Room with original scissor beams, antique oak refectory table, comfortable cream leather chesterfield sofa and TV.
Kitchen with electric cooker, fitted solid oak units and dishwasher.
Additional WC with wash basin.
Garden room leading to a small paved area and secluded, small, walled garden with a comfortable sitting area and 'astroturf' surface - this area is completely private from the owner's property. Off-street parking for one car in owner's driveway.
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 by car or a 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.
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, offering delicious local produce.
"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
