Interaction with guests
We live about 20 mins from The wilderness, so near enough to pop over if there's a problem, but far enough away not to intrude on your stay! Arrival and departure times are flexible, as we have a key safe system, so you can turn up as you like, and not worry about meeting deadlines.

This is a spacious house, very well equipped, clean and comfortable, with a lovely big garden for young people to play in. The family made trips to Longleat, Cheddar, Avebury and the REME Museum, and some cycled along the canal path. A great success.

About the neighbourhood
The magnificent Longleat House and safari park are just 10 mins away. We are just 40 mins from Stonehenge and Salisbury and 30 mins from Bath by road. Westbury Railway Station is 1 mile away with regular direct trains to Bath (20 mins) & London (90 mins). The M4 and M5 are only 30-40 mins away. The local Pub with its fine real ales and superb food is just a short walk across the fields. There are many excellent golf courses in the area (see our own website).
Getting around
Trains - Westbury station (1.5 miles from house) has direct links to Bath, Bristol, London, Brighton, Birmingham. Bath by train is 20 mins, salisbury 40, Bristol too. Buses - a bit infrequent, but they do run between Salisbury and Bath. Minibus is by far the best way to get in to Bath for a night out £200 return for a 16 seater!
