Nailey Farm, is home to Dicknick Cottage which sits in a very special untouched corner of England. A designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, situated on the south-facing slopes of St. Catherine’s Valley and enhanced only by the tranquillity of its surroundings. Nailey boasts stunning panoramic views over enchanting countryside. The unspoilt landscape provides a haven for many species of wildlife including foxes, deer, badgers, owls, buzzards and woodpeckers which are all regular visitors.
Approximately two miles away is the thriving ancient market town of Marshfield. Situated in beautiful Cotswold countryside it offers excellent shops and services including three historic pubs serving good food, wine and ale to suit every taste.
Nailey Farm is perfectly positioned with easy access to the elegant Georgian City of Bath (approximately fifteen minutes away), designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It is also only twenty five minutes from the historic maritime port of Bristol - both sites famed for their visitor attractions, architecture, art, vibrant and varied cultural scene and fantastic shopping. The picturesque villages of Castle Combe and Lacock are also just a few miles away.
Golf enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice, as there are no less than ten courses within easy reach, including Bowood, Castle Combe, Tracy Park, and Lansdown. For equestrians, Gatcombe Park horse trials and Badminton are close by, as is the racecourse at Bath. For those keen on motor sports Castle Combe also offers an outdoor Skid Pan and 350m Kart Track. For a more relaxed voyage, take a trip in a hot air balloon over Bath and beyond!
Other attractions, some within an hours drive, include the famous Longleat House and Safari Park; Westonbirt Arboretum; Bowood and Stourhead, among a wealth of many others noted for their beautiful houses and breathtaking gardens. The Ancient Stone Circles of Stonehenge and Avebury, the Tor and Abbey at Glastonbury, Cheddar Gorge, Wells Cathedral and many other places of interest can also be comfortably visited within a day.
