East Knoyle, Wiltshire Cottages
Located deep in the countryside on the borders of Wiltshire and Dorset, Cools Farm is the magical setting for two self-catering cottages, sensitively created from redundant farm buildings. The Tractor Shed is a modern conversion providing good quality self catering accommodation on a single (ground floor) level. Inside the property is spotlessly clean and presented in a fresh style. Guests, however, get the joy of being in the heart of a farm, which itself is a wonderful place to escape to.
The far reaching views over the surrounding countryside are breathtaking and there are great opportunities for walking on the Wessex Ridgeway, part of which crosses the farm. (For cyclists you can join the the nearby Wessex Cycle Way.)
We feel the Tractor Shed is an excellent location and choice for a quality rural retreat and holiday in a thoroughly attractive area.
Please note that The Tractor Shed can be booked with The Milking Parlour (H159) which is interconnecting to accomodate a total of 8 people.

Cools Farm on the borders of Wiltshire and Dorset.is a wonderful place to escape to, with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside and great opportunities for walking on the Wessex Ridgeway and for cycling on the nearby Wessex Cycle Way. If fishing is your passion, the Farm has a spring fed lake in a natural woodland setting, stocked with brown and rainbow trout. The owners run an organically managed herd of Red Poll cattle, which produce delicious grass fed meat. There are free-range chickens too, with fresh eggs available to visitors. This is a great place for children and the owners are very happy to explain the workings of the Farm.
