The House & Garden

Dowtys is set in a peaceful rural position 8 miles west of Salisbury and 12 miles southwest of Stonehenge. The converted early Victorian dairy buildings have unrivalled southerly views over the Nadder valley. The buildings were converted by the owners in 2005, winning a Salisbury Civic Society Conservation Award in 2007, which cited the outstanding craftsmanship and use of natural materials.


The house is wonderfully light, sunny and spacious and features an abundance of oak and stone which is complimented by antique furniture. Ground floor rooms have underfloor heating, with radiators in the first floor rooms. Guests have their own entrance and staircase and there is ample parking in the courtyard.

Guest Sitting Room

The large, sunny Sitting Room has a TV, books and magazines and a woodburner during the winter months. Sliding doors open onto the garden. There are some toys and games available for younger visitors.

Free WiFi

Dining Room

The Dining Room, where breakfast is served, was once the milking parlour! This oak-beamed room contains some fine antique furniture and oak flooring. The owners’ collection of books is housed in the library at one end of the room. Here guests will also find information on local attractions and places of interest. The guest entrance door opens directly into the dining room.

Tea and coffee making facilities are laid out in the dining room for guests to help themselves to, as and when they wish.


The Garden

The owners take great pride in their south facing garden which is well sheltered by the house, and provides numerous sitting areas, with stunning views over the Nadder Valley and surrounding countryside. Guests can relax in the garden, and may be offered breakfast and tea outside on the terrace when the weather is warm enough.
