Tisbury is nestled in the heart of the Nadder Valley in the scenic county of Wiltshire.  This lively village can trace its origins back to Saxon times and its historic roots are evident in the majestic ruins of Wardour Castle.  Built in the 14th century, Wardour Castle stands as a symbol of medieval grandeur, offering visitors a glimpse into the region's storied past. Tisbury's charming main street is a mix of lovely independent shops and quaint cottages. 

This large village effortlessly blends the charm of rural life with modern convenience, making it a popular destination.  Among its offerings are a sports center, a well-connected mainline railway station (to London Waterloo), and the renowned Messums Museum (a multi-purpose gallery & arts centre) which is located in a beautifully restored thatched barn, believed to be the longest of its kind in the nation.  

There are several primary schools in the area: Tisbury, Wardour, Semley, Hindon, Chilmark and Dinton and Shaftesbury Secondary School (a bit further away, but still within reach).

There are plenty of places to walk all around Tisbury but our favourite is the walk from Old Wardour Castle, past New Wardour Castle and into Donhead woods.  Where else can you view a 14th century castle, walk through the grounds of "one of the finest Palladian houses in Wiltshire" and stop for lunch in the The Forester pub in Donhead!
