In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Excellent walking and cycling area
Set in a peaceful rural location on the borders of Dorset and Wiltshire, Whitebridge Farm is ideally placed for enjoying a family touring holiday. The farm generally has a small flock of sheep, ducks and poultry, guests are welcome to walk in the fields to visit them, dogs must be kept on a lead at all times. Both the South Wiltshire and Dorset cycle ways pass nearby and there are numerous waymarked walks to choose from, including the half-hour Shaftesbury town trail, which leads to the famous Gold Hill, with its magnificent views. Many historic houses in the area, including Stourhead (National Trust), with its famous example of early 18th-century English landscaping. An hour's drive leads to Salisbury, Bath with its Roman baths and Georgian architecture, Cheddar with its impressive caves and gorge, and Weymouth, a fine resort for fishing, sailing, swimming and sunbathing. Visit Stonehenge, and then the ancient Avebury Stone Circle. Set in 10 acres, the eight cottages, four of which are featured here, are grouped around an attractive grassed courtyard and were once stables for the owner's impressive farmhouse (built in 1872). Old beams have been retained wherever possible and all bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms for added comfort. Many pubs serving food and offering outdoor eating/children's play areas nearby - why not try East Knoyle for starters? Shop and pub within a mile.
