Introduction

The Stable is a state-of-the-art barn conversion in the picturesque village of Broadchalke, which nestles in the unspoilt Chalke Valley, 7 miles from the cathedral city of Salisbury. The surrounding countryside, part of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is particularly renowned and there are a huge number of walks in the area starting with one straight from The Stable door across the owner’s field to the River Ebble. On the chalk downland above the village you can follow the old Ox Drove all the way to Salisbury while for keen cyclists part of the Wiltshire Cycleway runs along the valley.

Further afield but still within an hour’s driving distance of Broadchalke are a whole host of visitor attractions – Wilton House, Stonehenge, Longleat, Stourhead and the World Heritage city of Bath. The New Forest National Park boundary is only about 20 minutes away while Dorset’s “Jurassic” coastline is a must for a day’s excursion. Closer to home there is a whole string of pretty villages between Salisbury and the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury, with many ancient cottages, some fine houses and gardens, ancient churches and of course lots of good country pubs to discover.

Painstakingly researched by its owners and converted with taste and style, The Stable is a brick and flint building typical of the area which now offers high class accommodation in a ‘clean’ contemporary style. The main living room, open to roof height and incorporating its original elm timber structure and brick-arched windows, provides a wonderful, very relaxed living space with a chic Scandinavian woodburner affording extra warmth and cosiness on chilly evenings. A sofa bed provides additional sleeping for two guests.

Accommodation

(all at ground floor level): undercover entrance via a car port with censored lighting up three stone steps into a hallway with utility cupboard and separate wc. Very spacious open plan living room comprising sitting and dining areas and a fitted kitchen with oak breakfast bar. Bedroom with zip & link beds offering a choice of super kingsize double or twin beds. En suite bathroom/wc with separate shower above the bath.

Stable doors from the living room and French windows from the bedroom lead out to a gravelled ‘courtyard’ garden area with ‘bistro’ table and chairs. There’s a further dedicated garden area beyond the driveway from where cut paths lead down to a private river bank – a perfect spot to relax and enjoy a picnic.
