The House On The Hill  has seen the most amazing transformation from old grain barn and milking sheds to utterly stunning holiday accommodation for large groups and extended families, in a glorious setting on the borders of Wiltshire and Dorset, in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 8 bedrooms sleep up to 24 guests so it’s perfect for a short stay or week long break of family, friends and corporate groups.

Wake up each morning to views that stretch to infinity across the landscape; on a clear day look up to wide open skies and at night the only light you’ll see is from the moon and stars. Book lovers, art lovers and those who appreciate exquisite interiors will love it here; it’s a fabulous mix of old and modern, with quirky pieces, opulent Farrow & Ball colours, warm Parquet flooring and the chunkiest hand crafted tables. Original artworks adorn the walls, there’s a huge DVD library, tons of books, a heated pool and a games room.

We suspect you’ll be so happy you won’t want to leave, but if you want to venture out whilst you’re here there’s a plethora of footpaths and bridleways right on your doorstep; you can stroll to the village of Ebbesbourne Wake for lunch at the The Horseshoe Inn or a relaxing pint in the beer garden. If you like fishing you’re in luck with the River Avon and the Stour nearby; for golfing enthusiasts Rushmoor Park Golf Club is just a few miles away. Go to Shaftesbury and browse around the medieval streets, visit the Abbey and make sure you climb the famous cobbled Gold Hill, with its quaint cottages and gorgeous views of the Blackmore Vale.

Have an afternoon at a historic house – Stourhead, with its temples and follies, or Old Wardour Castle. Take a day trip to the coast, to Bournemouth, or the quiet coves of Lulworth and Durdle Door; if you’re into ancient monuments, Stonehenge isn’t far, neither is Old Sarum Iron Age Hill Fort. If you’re more adventure seeking, head off to Go Ape Moors Valley at Ringwood or Virtual Warfare Laser Combat. Then go back to the House On The Hill and before you go to bed, take a drink out onto the terrace and soak up the peace air and tranquillity beneath a sky full of stars.
