By Wyndham Vacation Rentals


The picturesque, peaceful and traditional market town of Mere in Wiltshire sits close to the borders of both Dorset and Somerset which makes it the perfect location for a relaxing self-catering cottage holiday exploring this lovely corner of rural south England.

The town has retained an old-fashioned charm that gives visitors a true taste of rural life. Mere has everything you''d expect from a quaint, small town; pleasant family-run tea rooms and shops, a traditional market square in the middle of town and a handful of friendly pubs.

The area is very well located for visiting the beautiful surrounding countryside. The steep slopes of Castle Hill offer fantastic views across the county and you are not far away from the White Sheet Nature Reserve, which is a protected area due to its wildlife and natural beauty spots.

Day out ideas include Longleat Safari and Adventure Park and The National Trust’s Stourhead Estate where you can visit the mansion and roam the exquisite 18th century landscaped gardens; there are also riverside walks, a National Trust shop and restaurant.

Close by there are opportunities for playing golf, clay pigeon shooting, horse riding and fishing in the nearby area, as well as countless pleasant trails for walkers or cyclists.

Enjoy the pleasant countryside of Wiltshire; for accommodation see holiday cottages in Mere.

    This charming stone cottage stands right at the entrance to the gardens on the National Trust Estate of Stourhead, overlooking its own lawned area to the village church across the lane.
