In the southwest of England lies a tiny house in Salisbury, a medieval cathedral city near Stonehenge. Two guests can cozy up in the studio-style space with a bed meant for stargazing.

The hut includes a tiny wood-burning stove in the corner of the main living area that’s equipped with bench seating and a wooden table, plus kitchen appliances (tea kettle definitely included). Every morning, guests are treated to fresh bread, marmalade, granola, and muesli. Tea service and a barbecue pack for cooking can be requested, too.

Outside is a charming patio with a pizza oven and a picturesque private hot tub, where guests can chill with local animals like ponies, alpacas and chickens.

While on-site accommodations make for ideal relaxation, nearby activities and landmarks make for excellent sightseeing and fun. The property sits on eight acres of the Bentley Wood, perfect for hiking, mountain biking or walking in the wilderness. But a quick drive will get you to beaches perfect for lying in the sun, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, and boating. Plus, the historic Mottisfont Abbey—an 800-year-old “house” reminiscent of “Downton Abbey”—is nearby, too, and home to exhibitions, shops, and stunning gardens.

Nearby towns Salisbury and Winchester also boast medieval architecture and historic sights, like the gothic 13th century Salisbury Cathedral, where visitors can climb the 404-foot spire to lay their eyes on the Magna Carta. If you choose not to use the complimentary pizza oven on location of the hut, gastronomic excellence is nearby, along with the Ringwood Brewery, which features craft ales.

A short 30-mile drive from the hut will get guests to the South Coast, where they can see stunning beaches, the Exbury Gardens, Studland Bay, and the Isle of Purbeck.

Former guests have called this spot “wonderful” and “glamorous.” Check out more about the listing here.
