Warminster 8 miles. Hidden deep within the Wiltshire countryside in the conservation area of the picturesque village of Chitterne you will find the pet-friendly Nest. A full of character converted detached stone and brick stable/hayloft, set in the grounds of the owner’s 17th century listed house on the edge of the village. With its old stable door, exposed beams and a modern kitchen extension, and its setting adjacent to rolling fields and farm tracks, the Nest provides a perfect retreat and a base for exploration of the area. After a day of exploring relax in the cosy sitting room and unwind as you watch a movie on the TV. Whip up a delicious meal in the chic grey and copper fully fitted kitchen/diner on the contemporary electric hob and oven, and enjoy at the pine dining table. Step out onto the patio to embrace the fresh clean Wiltshire air, enjoy the lush green setting and allow yourself to unwind. In the evening be amazed by the sunsets and the huge star-studded night skies. Venture up the staircase and retire to the bright and airy king-sized bedroom, beautifully decorated with white furnishings and complemented by a stylish grey wall to floor tiled en-suite shower room. From the Nest the walker, rider, cyclist, naturalist or historian can access large tracts of uncultivated chalkland on the many ancient tracks, by-ways, bridle paths and footpaths. Spend your days exploring the magnificent countryside of the Salisbury Plain, the largest uncultivated area of chalkland in Europe thanks to over 100 years of military ownership and use. Wander the many chalk tracks and experience the huge skies, the feeling of space, the uninterrupted views for mile after mile of rolling downs. The Salisbury Plain is an area rich in archaeological heritage, home to rare butterflies, wild flowers, birds and many historical monuments. The land is peppered with old burial mounds, romano/british villages, boundary ditches, field systems and hill forts and criss-crossed with ancient trackways, and drove roads used for thousands of years by our ancestors. Immerse yourself further in the ancient past of this area by visiting Stonehenge, only 7.5 miles away and associated sites at Woodhenge and Durrington Walls. Follow it up by visiting the even older stone circle at Avebury. Take a trip to Old Sarum iron age fort, forerunner of the medieval city of Salisbury, a few miles away. Visit awe-inspiring Salisbury Cathedral in its beautiful cathedral-close setting. Take a look inside some of Salisbury’s original timber-framed old buildings such as the Haunch of Venison pub, the foyer at the Odeon Cinema and the outdoor shop in Queen Street where medieval interiors have been preserved. Other interesting architecture nearby can be found at Longleat House set in glorious surroundings, with its Deer Park, Safari Park and Hedge Maze or Stourhead with wonderful landscaped gardens. Take a trip further afield to visit the Roman Baths, Jane Austen Centre and Costume Museum at Bath. Experience the very best that Wiltshire has to offer with an escape to The Nest at the Round House.
