Salisbury | Bedrooms: 8 | Sleeps: 15

Rates: from £7,447 per week

This elegant grade II listed 17th century manor, once owned by the Abbess of Wilton, is situated in the picturesque village of Chilmark.  Wonderfully located just 20 minutes from the prehistoric monument of Stonehenge, the medieval city of Salisbury and the bustling town of Shaftsbury, Eden Manor provides an ideal base to explore this enchanting part of the country. If quiet country life is what you are looking for its cosy interior, verdant grounds and heated outdoor pool provides a perfect location to relax and unwind.

A quintessential English country manor set over three floors, with two interconnecting parts, The Manor itself and newly converted Brewhouse. The entire property was fully renovated in 2015, which included the addition of an elegant conservatory where one can dine overlooking the beautiful gardens and the spire of St Margaret's Church, which sits majestically in the background. On entry into the main manor you are greeted with an attractive entrance hall. A stylish classically appointed living room sits to the left, and a library / TV room to the right. From the library you are led towards the stunning light flooded conservatory via what was once the manor's main kitchen. The first and second floors hold six of the properties immaculately kept bedrooms, with the second floor being an ideal space for children, offering a small living area between the two rooms. The Brewhouse is connected to the Manor via the conservatory. The name Brewhouse derives from its original use, when the Benedictine nuns of the Abbey of Wilton brewed beer here, of all things! Today, the name is the only remnant of this part of its history and the space has been converted into a refined modern kitchen and dining area, with an inviting snug and fireplace nestled at the end of the room for the winter months. This section of the house has one additional floor which holds the remaining two bedrooms both of which overlook the properties luscious gardens.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION FOR YOUR HOLIDAY IN GREAT BRITAIN

TIME ZONE

Great Britain operates on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

LANGUAGE

English is the principal language across Great Britain.

Currency

Great Britain’s unit of currency is the Pound Sterling, divided into 100 Pence.

Money Matters

In Great Britain, travellers cheques are sometimes accepted as payment in larger department stored but can be easily converted into local currency at banks. Hotels, shops, restaurants and many other venues accept all major credit cards and ATM access is widespread. American Express is less widely accepted. Exchange currency only at authorised outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend in-country. Coins cannot be reconverted on departure. Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

Tipping IN GREAT BRITAIN

A charge for service is often added to restaurant bills but, if it’s not, a typical gratuity would be equal to 10 - 15% of the total. In pubs, tipping lounge staff is at your discretion but is generally not common practice. When paying taxi fares, it is usual to tip up to 10% and round up to the nearest pound.

WEATHER

The British weather has a bad reputation but in actual fact rainy days are nowhere near as common as you may expect. The seasons are marked: In summer, days are bright and usually sunny: Spring and autumn can be cool in the evenings and rain showers are more common; In winter snow is rare but it can be cold and frosty.

CLOTHING

While jeans are acceptable, “smart casual” attire in Britain often means stylish trousers or skirt outfit for women and a shirt with collar and trousers for men. Cotton and other light fabrics are comfortable choices for summertime. Spring and autumn temperatures dictate medium-weight clothing selections and in winter warm pullovers are required.

For the countryside, bring comfortable walking shoes with low or no heels. An umbrella or light raincoat may come in handy. 

HEALTH

For up to date information on latest health and vaccination recommendations, please contact your doctor.

Electricity

Electrical service throughout Great Britain is supplied at 220 volts/50 hertz.

LOCATION:

Eden Manor is located in the picturesque Wiltshire village of Chilmark. Excellently located just a 20 minute drive from the prehistoric monument of Stonehenge, the medieval city of Salisbury and the bustling town of Shaftsbury. If you are looking to explore the beautiful Dorset coast, the nearest beach is under an hour by car and London is just an hour and 40 minutes by train from the neighbouring village of Tisbury.
