Set in the gorgeous Wiltshire village of Hindon, which has two pubs and a community shop, this stylishly renovated Georgian house has fabulous views from the back of the house over the beautiful countryside that surrounds the village, close to the border with Dorset. The open plan interior is perfect for spending time together, although the separate sitting-room and study offer the chance to really get into your holiday reading. Orchard View is the ideal base for exploring; within an easy driving distance are the relaxed Cathedral City of Salisbury, Stonehenge, the Georgian city of Bath with its Roman baths and spas, or the nearby town of Shaftesbury. After a busy day, your quiet village holiday home awaits your return.

This village location really does give you the best of both worlds, with the opportunity to relax, unwind and walk from your door, taking one of the numerous bridleways that surround Hindon. A 10 minute drive will take you to the National Trust's Stourhead Gardens and Stourhead House, with farm shop, courtyard pub, art gallery, cafe and shop. The New Forest National Park is a one hour drive away, where you can hire a bicycle to explore all the forest tracks, or the bustling Georgian market town of Lymington; if you feel like island hopping, you can catch a ferry to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. If you can tear yourself away from the tranquility, there are many nearby destinations to choose from. Longleat is just a short drive away, populated by lions, tigers and monkeys, and home to the world's longest maze. The nearby hilltop market town of Shaftesbury is one of the highest in England and offers spectacular views of the Blackmore Vale. An hour or so in the car takes you to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast where you can hunt for fossils at Charmouth or Lyme Regis or for a safe sandy beach day, visit Weymouth or Sandbanks.
