Why stay here ...
Set in the Vale of Pewsey, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in rural Wiltshire, Caroline and Anthony Wells look forward to welcoming you to Totteridge Farm. The family moved to Totteridge in 1877 and Anthony is the fifth generation to farm here. There has been a CL on the farm for over 40 years and, as our regular guests know, there are many reasons to stay here!
Our adult-only, dog friendly site has sweeping views over to Martinsell Hill, an Iron Age hill fort (and also the third highest hill in Wiltshire). On a warm summer's evening, the sunsets can be spectacular. We recommend that you sit back, enjoy a glass of something chilled, watch and relax! At certain times of the year, you can watch out for shooting stars in the clear night sky.
There is great walking and cycling direct from the site, with dozens of public footpaths and bridleways around the Vale and also a little further afield, on Salisbury Plain. All offer lovely walks, as long or as short as you want to make them. Savernake Forest is just six miles away and the Kennet & Avon Canal borders the farm, providing excellent walking, cycling or canoeing.
The Victorian Crofton Beam Engines (in steam on most bank holidays), Wilton Windmill and the flight of canal locks at Caen Hill in Devizes all give an insight into our industrial heritage. There is a good choice of country houses and gardens to explore, such as Bowood House near Calne, Wilton House and Heale House near Salisbury, Abbey Court Gardens in Malmesbury, Stourhead House near Mere and quaint Lacock with its Abbey.
While Stonehenge is 15 miles away, we recommend a visit to Avebury, with its ancient stone circles, manor house gardens and village. While you're in the vicinity, visit Kennet Long Barrow and Silbury Hill too.
The lovely cathedral city of Salisbury is 45 minutes away, with a bustling Saturday market and plenty of places to eat and drink. We recommend a visit to the cathedral and, if you don't mind steps and have a head for heights, the Tower Tour allows you to experience truly awe-inspiring medieval structural engineering. The Close is also home to Mompesson House and Arundells, both open to the public.
There's no shortage of dog-friendly pubs within an easy walk, cycle or drive. Pewsey (2 miles) has a supermarket, pubs and various takeaways. Local markets are held in Marlborough (Saturdays) and Devizes (Thursdays) and both towns should be able to supply all your needs. There are some great 'coffee & cake' stops, too, as well as various farms shops and garden centres.
Wiltshire will take you far from the madding crowd of other tourist hotspots and offers the best of rural Britain. Totteridge Farm is the perfect base from which to explore this wonderful county, or a place to simply sit back and relax.
