A working organic farm and estate close to Salisbury Plain with a choice of self-catering accommodation

Situated on the Hampshire-Wiltshire border, Cholderton Estate has been in the same family since the 1880s, and is nowadays an organic 2500-acre working farm grazed by around a 1000 cattle and 100 horses. It's carefully managed and has been organically farmed for 30 years so is also abuzz with birds, bees and butterflies. There's a Victorian walled kitchen garden and maze and the landscape is an extension of the nearby Salisbury Plain, with ancient earthworks, age-old footpaths and Roman roads. And the great thing is, you can stay on the estate in a choice of accommodation, including a shepherd’s hut, a cabin and a quirky self-catering cottage – each with its own hot tub!

The cabin, which sleeps 4, and the hut, which sleeps 2 and is dog-friendly, are entirely self-contained, with simple cooking facilities and en-suite bathrooms, and their own outside spaces ,with room for their own hot tubs and a firepit. The cottage, known as the Coach House, has been converted from the groom’s quarters next door to the stables. and it comfortably sleeps 4 people in two bedrooms (one double, one twin). It's very cosy, with bare floorboards, rugs and a kitchen-sitting room with an electric log burner – plus a large garden and barbecue area with its own wood-fired hot tub.  In all the estate can sleep 18, and makes a perfect rustic  (and dog-friendly!) wedding venue, with a Grad-II-listed barn and the Victorian garden providing an ideal space for ceremonies.

The beauty of the estate – the farm animals, the gardens, the grounds and the proximity to lots of lovely countryside and the ancient site of Stonehenge – make Cholderton estate a great choice for couples and young families, whether as a bucolic stopover en-route to the South West or as a destination in its own right. Arrive here and slow down to the pace of Cholderton life – you'll be glad you didn't drive any further.

Getting There

From the A303 about eight miles east of Stonehenge, head towards Cholderton on the A338. After a couple of miles, at the first roundabout, take the first exit on to Grateley Road and then continue onto Cholderton Road. From here, follow signs to turn left into Kingsettle Stud and the Cholderton Estate. There’s a train station at Grateley (seven miles from Kingsettle Stud), which is ideal for anyone bringing a bike. Otherwise, the best station to use is Andover (14 miles away), since it has a taxi rank outside.
