Pioneers of luxury organic glamping, the friendly owners at Mill Farm have been welcoming guests to their range of eclectic accommodation, set in the mesmerising Wiltshire countryside, since 2007.
Their latest venture is the incredible Belle Vue Farm Shire; a trio of bespoke, hand-crafted Shire houses, nestled in a picture-perfect meadow overlooking the Wiltshire hills.
Plucked from the pages of an iconic fantasy story, each retreat boasts delightfully quirky features that include a colourful round doorway flanked by tree branches, ‘porthole’ windows, and a naturally flowering roof that encourages bees and wildlife to thrive.
Step inside to discover a wealth of rustic creature comfort, with beamed ceilings, hand-crafted accessories, and plenty of snuggly throws.
Sleeping up to four guests, there’s a spacious, underfloor-heated living area to unwind in all together, complete with a warming stove, a Bluetooth speaker, and a selection of board games (there’s free Wi-Fi too, just in case you have to check in with the real world every once in a while.)
Prepare second breakfasts galore in the gorgeous kitchen, equipped with everything you could possibly need… including a Nespresso machine to charge your mornings, and a dishwasher to help with the clearing-up.
Of course, if the sun is shining then you may not be able to resist wandering out to your private courtyard for a sizzling barbecue supper, instead!Keep reading

Here you’ll also discover a bespoke ‘water well’ feature hot tub that’s perfect for watching the blazing sun sink over the hills. Who knows, you may even catch sight of a grazing deer, as you sip a cool glass of bubbles and breathe out.
When it’s finally time for slumber, you’ll have two sumptuous bedrooms to choose from: a double room, and a second double that can be made into a twin on request.
What to do when you wake up? You could start by taking that first Nespresso coffee of the day back out to the courtyard, losing yourself in a soundtrack of birdsong. You could also indulge in a few Outdoor Shire games, including ring toss and croquet.
If you’re in an active mood, you can pre-book activities that range from archery and disc golf, to laser shooting and fitness classes. Not feeling so active? Painting classes or gentle spa treatments may be more your thing.
Stonehenge and Longleat are under 30 minutes away by car, though you’re intriguingly close to a network of historic footpaths that were once strolled by Wiltshire’s famous highwayman, Thomas Boulter. Pack a picnic basket and set out on the quest of your choice – or simply take advantage of the owners’ convenient ‘pub taxi’ service, via gator or tractor and trailer!
