Whitbourne Springs Self Catering Cottage - The Surrounding Area
The cottage is surrounded by beautiful countryside, woodland walks, and from the house and garden there are views of the ancient, historic and mystical Cley Hill where crop circles often appear in the Autumn. Walks through the forests are recommended as well as a climb up Cley Hill which affords stunning views of the surrounding area.
Longleat House and Safari park is half a mile away. A popular walk a mile’s drive away, locally known as ‘Heaven’s Gate’ will bring you out on a ridge overlooking Longleat House and its parkland. The village of Horningsham is two miles further on with its lovely Bath Arms public house.
Stonehenge is approximately a 25 minute drive, the beautiful city of Bath, a World Heritage site famous for its Roman Baths and Bath Abbey is 35 minutes. Other attractions such as Cheddar Gorge, Wells and Salisbury Cathedrals, Bradford-on-Avon with its huge tithe barn and many more places of interest are less than an hour’s drive from the cottage.
The local market town of Frome is a 10 minute drive. It has a huge monthly outdoor market and a weekly flea and bric-a-brac market as well as a bi-weekly standard market. The historic Cheap Street with the ‘leat’ running through it and the cobbled Catherine Hill with its vintage shops are both a must. Frome is also very lucky to have some lovely independent local cafes and some very high quality restaurants.
Warminster is a short drive in the other direction and offers a nice shopping street and Morrisons supermarket and Waitrose for supplies.
