Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Situated along a country lane, on the edge of the village of Shrewton, Drovers' Barn looks out onto an idyllic 2 acre garden by the River Till, which is shared only with the owners, whose thatched cottage is some 20 yards away.
Drovers' Barn is all at ground floor level with a wealth of exposed beams, old pine floors and considerable attention to lighting and décor - a really welcoming base from which to explore this interesting area. The cottage has eco-friendly heating and electricity systems.

About this location
The Wiltshire region
The location offers visitors a very central touring base, with easy access to the A303 (1 ½ miles away), making London 1 ½ - 2 hours' drive. Wiltshire's most famous pre-historic sites, Stonehenge and Avebury, the cathedral city of Salisbury and the World Heritage city of Bath are all within easy driving distance.
Between Shrewton and Salisbury to the south, a string of pretty villages nestle in the picturesque Wylye and Woodford valleys. There are many attractive cottages of stone, flint and chalk, traditional country pubs and good walking in the water meadows and on the chalk downland ridges above. For keen golfers there is an excellent course at High Post, near Amesbury. The village of Shrewton itself has local shops and several pubs.
