The West Country region
This part of southern England, where Wiltshire blends with Dorset is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much appreciated for its unspoilt downland and contrasting sheltered valleys. This is a lovely area to explore on foot, cycle or by car and there are many pretty villages with stone and thatch cottages where historic country pubs with good restaurants are still plentiful. Seniors Cottage also provides a very central touring base, being within two hours' drive of London and less than an hour from the South Dorset heritage coastline. It is also an easy drive from Salisbury, Bath, Stonehenge, Longleat, and such hidden treasures as Stourhead Gardens and 13th century Wardour Castle.
The Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury, famous for the cobbled street Gold Hill and with spectacular views across the surrounding Dorset landscape, is only 3 miles and offers comprehensive shopping facilities. Semley itself is an attractive village with a pub beside the pond, school, church and renowned auction rooms.
