BFB's Overview

Surrounded by the rolling Wiltshire Downs, Summerleaze is a blissful barn conversion with private pool, and the perfect spot for frazzled parents to completely chill out. Drop the bags, throw back the French doors and flop on a lounger to gaze on the vast open views and by night watch for shooters in the star studded sky.

Owners Trish and Tim live in the farmhouse next door and are more than happy for families to make use of their tennis court and take an invigorating dip in the outdoor pool, (but be warned it’s not heated!). Trish will also rustle up delicious home cooked meals by arrangement and Tim, the talented artist, has added his own personal flair to the decor with his paintings on the walls
.

The al fresco dining patio provides a perfect vantage point for parents to eat, drink and unwind while keeping watchful eyes on the children having fun, either playing on the lawns, in the sandpit or paddling pool and making dens or playing hide and seek amongst the trees. The patio is also an extension of the large open plan living/dining room and kitchen, so adults can always keep track of toddlers tottering in and out, whether playing with toys or watching TV.


The living space is calmingly uncluttered, light and airy, with exposed raftered ceiling, smooth wood floors and comfy sofas for snuggling by the woodburner that stands in an imposing stone fireplace. At one end, the Shaker style kitchen comes complete with an Aga and a long worktop that overlooks the dining table and living area means parents can prepare snacks and get mealtimes sorted while still sharing time with the family. Parents will find an elegant wrought iron bed with cool, quality linen for a good night’s rest and a bright, fresh twin room includes a wooden cot.


Accommodation overview

Summerleaze sleeps a family of four, plus a baby. The house has one double bedroom, one twin room with a wooden cot and a family bathroom.

Location Information

For a relaxing break in the country, with lots to see and do nearby, Summerleaze promises a lovely rural setting overlooking the Wiltshire countryside of the Blackmoor Vale. The local village of East Knoyle may be small but still has two historic claims to fame as the birthplace of Sir Christopher Wren and the family home of Jane Seymour who became the second wife of Henry VIII. The village has a community shop selling locally sourced produce and everything you could need, the 15th century thatched coaching inn, the Fox and Hounds, with a big lawn at the front and a growing reputation for good pub food. There are two more village pubs to try in the village of Hindon (4 miles)

The lovely market town of Shaftesbury is just 5 miles away, Shaftesbury is one of the oldest and highest towns in England with stunning views across the surrounding countryside. There are plenty of good pubs, cafes, restaurants, bars and independent shops in the town along with two supermarkets, Tesco and Co-op. The wonderful cathedral city of Salisbury is also only 15 miles from the house, steeped in history and with plenty of interesting shops, gastro pubs and pavement cafe culture.

Longleat (20 mins) is one of the biggest family attractions in the area, with its famous Safari Park plus Postman Pat Village, Adventure castle, Play Kingdom and lots more. Little wildlife fans can also see hairy bison, elk, racoons, prairie dogs and chipmunks at the Bush Farm Bison Centre. The beautiful Georgian city of Bath and iconic Stonehenge are approximately 1 hour away or families can pack a picnic for a day at the seaside on the Jurassic Coast.

The Blackmore Vale is excellent walking country and there are paths to follow from the doorstep through the surrounding organic farm, into ancient woodlands and onto the Wessex Ridgeway.

Nearest Medical Services (GP & A&E): GP Surgery in Hindon; Small Injuries unit Shaftesbury; A & E Salisbury.
