Cottage with exposed beams, Rural

The Cider Barn is conveniently located 2 miles south of the A303, outside the village of West Knoyle on the Wiltshire side of the border with Dorset. Nestled on the edge of Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it benefits not only from being surrounded by beautiful countryside but enjoys the most magical night skies, being in one of the few areas of the UK with an International Dark Sky Reserve status. Cider Barn is located in the grounds of the owner’s farmhouse, with easy access to the farm’s fields and woodland that is connected to a network of public pathways. Whatever time of year you come there will always be something of interest whether wild garlic in the woods in the spring, breath-taking sunsets or the neighbouring bison and elk grazing in the fields, along with the plethora of wildlife that can be spotted, including our resident barn owl, bats, buzzards, hawks, stoats, deer, muntjacs and butterflies. This spacious, modern barn conversation with a studio layout provides the perfect environment to unwind with a relaxing seating area where you can put your feet up as you enjoy watching the wall-mounted Smart TV, or simply help yourself to a book or play boardgames! A separate, well-equipped kitchen with plenty of storage space holds all you need for rustling up some fantastic dishes including a large range cooker, with a dining area for enjoying your meal. There is an en-suite shower room conveniently placed next to the sleeping area which boasts a drop-down king-size bed. Sit and relax in the garden area outside as you plan the rest of the holiday’s activities, and in case you need to work during your stay, the property has good quality broadband and WiFi. Being located in the centre of the Southwest of England, Cider Barn is convenient as a touring base, with easy access to Longleat Safari Park, the National Trust’s Stourhead House and Gardens, Stonehenge, Bath, Glastonbury, Wells, Frome, the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury and Salisbury with its stunning cathedral. A visit to the beautiful Dorset coast is only an hour away, with many guests choosing to visit Lulworth Cove, Sandbanks in Poole or Burton Bradstock. For those that enjoy walking, there are a multitude of wonderful walks on the Cranborne Chase, Wessex Ridgeway, Wiltshire Downs and Blackmore Vale and maps provided of suggested walks for guests. The area is popular with cyclists due to the quiet roads, beautiful scenery and fantastic and atmospheric country pubs that are plentiful, with the property boasting undercover bike storage. For those who enjoy the thrill of mountain biking, Windhill mountain bike park is close-by, so don’t forget your bike!
