Directions - park farm house bed and breakfast, Salisbury

4Self Classified Bed and Breakfast Ratings explained
Park Farm House , Salisbury, SP5 5PU
Park Farm House is situated in the heart of the historic and unspoilt Cranborne Chase that spans the counties of Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. We are located above the village of Tollard Royal, virtually on the Wiltshire-Dorset border – so you can get the best of both worlds ! With the A354 Salisbury to Blandford road just two miles away and the A303 about ten, getting here is easy.

From your bedroom window you look out across paddocks and woods; at night the only noise could be a hooting owl or the munching of grazing horses. We offer one bedroom, which means that you will be the only visitors staying; there is plenty of parking and lawn to walk around.

The house has the kitchen-table and AGA (plus Humphrey, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) at its heart: we like things warm and comfortable without being fussy. For breakfast we offer cereals, fruit, home-made marmalade, plus a sizzling ' full farmhouse' of bacon, eggs, sausages and toast - other cooked options easily available on request, as are kippers.

'Wi-fi' is available and mobile-phone reception is good.

Being dog-lovers we happily accommodate the dogs of our guests; nearby is the 18-hole Rushmore golf-course, set in rolling parkland, while there are plenty of bridle-ways, footpaths, tracks and lanes for riding, walking and cycling. We have half-a-dozen delightful walks that start from the front-door, some taking you to an award-winning pub: in the village there is The King John while The Museum is a half-hour walk to the next village, Farnham. All the pubs are dog-friendly.

For riders (horses and cyclists) and walkers the opportunities are both short and long: there are ancient woodlands, springy downland turf or ‘the high country’ ox-droves with distant vistas. In addition Jasper offers guided walks.

From the house there are a surprising amount of places you can visit within an hour’s radius: to the north there is Bath, Stourhead, and Wells; to the west, Sherborne and Shaftesbury; to south-west Ringstead beach and others along the Jurassic Coast, Hardy Country, Maiden Castle and Dorchester; and to the south and east, The New Forest, Salisbury and Stonehenge.

As for your hosts, Sarah uses her knowledge of paint effects to paint furniture while Jasper works in international flora and fauna conservation: both have travelled widely, including lots of first-hand knowledge of B and B’s both home and abroad.

The Bedroom: Large bright and airy room with views across paddocks to the woods. One double Victorian bed and one single divan bed; while the room is not en-suite the bathroom is just two paces from the bedroom, with guests of the room having exclusive use.

From Salisbury: Take the A354 to Blandford and after approximately 10 miles take a right-hand turn at a round-about signed ‘Shaftesbury’ and ‘Sixpenny Handley’. Drive through Sixpenny Handley (approximately a mile from the round-about) continue for three miles until you come the Tollard Royal sign. Keep going until you come to the village pond on the right; immediately turn sharp left and up a steep hill (with a war memorial on the right). Over the brow of the hill the road flattens out and continues round a right-hand bend; continue for another 100 yards and Park Farm House is on the left – the only house so you cannot miss it, with the name on a five-bar gate.

Coming from the A303 (in the Exeter direction): Turn off and take the A350 to Shaftesbury; here you follow signs to Salisbury and the A30, including at a large roundabout (with The Chase Hotel on the left); take first left off the roundabout, signed to Salisbury/A30. Drive for approximately three miles until you come to a village called Ludwell. Drive down into the village and up the other side: three-quarters of the way up you see a sign ‘Tollard Royal’ to the right – take it.

After about half a mile the road goes up a steep hill and the road flattens after which you come to a junction. Take the left-hand turn signed to ‘Tollard Royal’ and drive along for a mile and half when you will see a fork to the right saying ‘Tollard Green’ – take it, taking care to watch for oncoming traffic as the bend is semi-blind. Proceed for a mile and a half until you come to the first road sign, which says ‘Tollard Green’ to the left: take that and proceed down lane for a mile until you come to the Tollard Park Livery Yard on the right: go past and proceed for 100 yards and Park Farm House is on the right.

Coming from Salisbury (via Wilton): Take the A30 to Shaftesbury. After approximately ten miles you arrive at the village of Ludwell. With the road starting to go down, take the sign left to ‘Tollard Royal’: then as per the instructions in 2 (above).
