The Milk House is a beautifully refurbished old dairy with wonderful views over our farmland and wood. It is within a few minutes of Erlestoke woods, the Salisbury Plain & the Erlestoke 18 hole Golf Club. Stonehenge, Bath, Salisbury & Marlborough are all within 30 minutes. There are two double bedrooms (all king size beds), one with an effectively ensuite bathroom, a twin room and a single bedroom with a toilet and basin in the next room. There is a family bathroom upstairs with a beautiful antique roll top bath which the two upstairs bedrooms share. We have furnished it with antique prints, furniture and old photographs of our historic dairy.

We have furnished it with antique prints, furniture and old photographs of our historic dairy. We have taken a great deal of care to make it supremely comfortable with all the modern conveniences: lighting, WiFi, playstations and everything you could need in a modern kitchen to cook and to entertain yet with a traditional touch. There are many different walks to do directly from the house. We are next to the Salisbury Plain, the largest area of unspoilt chalk land in Europe. Erlestoke Woods are even closer and no one can miss the carpet of bluebells every spring. We have our own huge vegetable patch, orchard with plums, pears, and apples where you can pick produce and flowers in season right by the cottage. The house and buildings were built in the 18th century, and our wood was where the original saxon settlement here was founded, with coins still being found very recently by our neighbours. We are in idyllic surroundings with wonderful views over the edge of the Salisbury Plain. There is so much to do nearby yet it is lovely enough to just relax and do as much or as little as you want.More

Nestling under the north border of Salisbury plain, in the grounds of an elegant old farmhouse. Perfect for family gatherings, beautifully decorated, fully furnished and equipped. The former milk house, surprisingly spacious. The descriptions are all accurate. Highly recommended.

About the neighbourhood
Erlestoke is a beautiful village with local shops and pubs within a few minutes drive. The Salisbury Plain is very close and Erlestoke woods, famous for its November bonfire night and spring bluebells. Devizes is an historic market town 7 miles away with a colourful medieval past. The town enjoys a rich heritage of fine Georgian houses and a 19th century castle built on the site of a Norman stronghold. Devizes has boasted a castle for a thousand years. A fascinating Medieval Trail leaflet chronicles this and takes the visitor around the town to points of interest. The Wiltshire Heritage Museum, is home to outstanding collections tracing the history of Wiltshire.
How to get there
The Milk House is 1.5 hours by car from Heathrow airport and 1 hr from Bristol Airport and 1.5 hrs from the ferries at Poole and Portsmouth. It is on the outskirts of the village of Erlestoke and a few minutes walk from the wonderful Salisbury Plain. Stonehenge, Bath, Salisbury & Marlborough are all within 30 minutes.
