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. The setting is glorious, on the borders of Wiltshire and Dorset, in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 8 bedrooms sleep up to 20 guests (4 more at an extra charge) 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 of immense open skies and an unspoilt landscape that stretches on and on to meet the distant horizon; at night the only light you’ll see, apart from the moon and stars, is the light at the top of Salisbury Cathedral, 12 miles away. 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.
And of course, there's Salisbury; go and explore this historic city, see the glorious cathedral where peregrine falcons nest, climb the spire, the tallest in England since 1561. 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 in search of adventure, head off to Go Ape Moors Valley at Ringwood or Virtual Warfare Laser Combat. Wherever you go, whatever you do, round it off back at House On The Hill with a drink on the terrace; watch the sunset, soak up the fresh air and tranquillity as the stars come out one by one.
