This listed Stable, on the edge of a pretty village, has been given a contemporary new life with plenty of nods to its stable past. Sleek, comfortable and wood-fire warmed, it’s an inviting romantic escape.The lofty, open-plan spaces make for easy living. Settle in by the wood-burner on nippy nights, sit out in the courtyard in summer; the smart kitchen area will keep cooks happy, but the pub and village cafe are a short walk if you fancy a break. Your bedroom has French windows to the courtyard, and there’s a sofa bed for an extra guest.Walk down the lane past the Georgian manor that Cecil Beaton lived in, head through the owners’ paddock to the peaceful river or hike over rolling downland. You’ll find the owners next door – warm, welcoming and happy to advise on exploring the Chalke Valley or what’s going on in Salisbury.

The neighbourhood

You're on the edge of Broad Chalke village: rolling chalk hills, the river Ebble meandering through the valley, with footpaths, cycleways and old drove roads to follow. It's an easy stroll past pretty thatched cottages to The Hub, a chapel converted into a superb community shop and café, or to the excellent Queen's Head pub. For city lights and a beautiful cathedral, Salisbury is a 20-minute drive.

Local points of interest from Emily Millar

  • Messums Wiltshire - A leading multi purpose gallery & arts centre. Whether you are interested in acquiring art, experiencing art or learning about art, it is housed in the largest tithe barn in England and absolutely worth a visit. Cafe there too.
  • Wilton House - Home to the 18th Earl of Pembroke. Set in 21 acres of parkland with beautiful water and Rose gardens beside the river Nader and Palladian bridge. A fantastic adventure playground for children & a gift shop & restaurant. Check out the house.
  • Fonthill Estate - A beautiful estate in Fonthill Bishop with a large lake and stunning walks with a reward of a fab lunch at The Beckford Arms to complete the trip.
  • Chalke Valley History Festival - At the end of June each year for one week, this event is the largest festival in the UK entirely dedicated to history. There are talks and debates as well as vast living history through the ages pop up restaurants & bars.


Emily Millar

The barns and land were previously owned by Emily’s parents, so she feels a great affection for this lovely place. The Barn shows off her great talent for interior design; her latest project is importing textiles from Mexico. Emily and her family (and two chocolate Labradors) live in the attached larger converted barn so she will be on hand if you need help with anything.
