Situated some 4 miles to the north of the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury, right on the borders of Dorset and Wiltshire, this area offers some of the finest and most unspoilt countryside in the south of England, with superb opportunities for walking and cycling and with a whole host of interesting places to visit - the World Heritage city of Bath and the cathedral Salisbury are both 45 minutes drive, the world-famous, National Trust gardens at Stourhead and the magical ruins of Old Wardour Castle are about 20 minutes and South Dorset's magnificent Jurassic coastline is reachable in an hour.

Closer to home, the surrounding villages offer a wide choice of excellent pubs and eating houses while Shaftesbury provides for all local shopping needs.
