About The Stables

The Stables sleeps six guests in three bedrooms (all en-suite with televisions/DVD players) and is a newly converted stable block that sits on a family run working farm in a wonderful part of Wiltshire. With a large open plan kitchen, sitting and dining area with open beams, oak floor and modern conveniences (including Wi-Fi), this stylish holiday home is an ideal retreat at any time of the year.

Located at Manor Farm, The Stables is situated in East Grafton, a pretty village in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Well located, this charming holiday cottage provides an ideal base for exploring the area with the Wilton Windmill, Savernake Forest, the famous Crofton Beam Engines and the Kennet and Avon Canal all within just two miles. Stonehenge, Avebury, Marlborough, Silbury Hill, Ridgeway, Devizes, Hungerford and the Cathedral City of Salisbury are nearby, providing a wealth of attractions and great days out. Other attractions within easy reach that are popular with guests are Longleat Safari Park, Legoland, Lacock Abbey, Stourhead, Bowood and the historic Roman City of Bath.

Wiltshire's beautiful rolling landscape is dotted with small market towns just waiting to be explored and the countryside surrounding Manor Farm provides plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities. Whether you enjoy cycling, walking or horse-riding, the area has much to offer and is a haven for wildlife including red kites, lapwing, hares, barn owls, roe and fallow deer.

The Forest and Canal offer great traffic free walking and cycling opportunities and there are miles of bridleways and byways through local woodland and across beautiful downland (you can bring our own horse to explore them!). There is access to excellent mountain bike routes and great off road tracks or enjoy a more sedate ride along the quite country lanes and stop for lunch at a local pub along the way! Other popular outdoor pursuits available locally include fly fishing at Manningford Fishery, clay pigeon shooting at Lains Shooting School, golf at Tidworth and Marlborough, riding stables at Pewsey Vale Riding Centre and outdoor karting at Thruxton.

Manor farm is an excellent base for exploring Wiltshire's many attractions including the famous Wiltshire White horses and crop circles and within easy reach of lovely little villages, towns and cities.
