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.
Attractions in the area are numerous with the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury (Gold Hill & Abbey ruins) six miles away and the cathedral city of Salisbury, Stourhead House and Gardens (National Trust), Longleat and Old Wardour Castle within half an hour's drive. The many and varied attractions of the Georgian city of Bath and the South Dorset Jurassic coastline (both awarded UNESCO World Heritage status) are also accessible in an hour or less.
