About the property

Coach House in Mere, Wiltshire, England (near Dorset and Somerset borders) - Good Location For Day Trips To Surrounding Counties

Coach House is situated in the beautiful town of Mere, ideally located behind the medieval Castle Hill where Mere Castle once stood. With shops, pubs, parks and rolling countryside all within walking distance The Coach House is ideal for your holiday. Situated in the old part of the town our nearest pub is a 2 minute walk away, and a quick walk up Castle Hill will enable you to take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding three counties (Wiltshire, Dorset and Somerset). There are many attractions within an hours drive from the property. Take a trip into Salisbury and visit one of England's best Cathedrals, or submerge yourself in the world of Austen by spending a day in Bath with its stunning Georgian Architecture and the famous Roman Baths. A 20 minute drive will take you to the impressive Longleat (and safari park), home to the Marquess of Bath, and there are numerous National Trust properties nearby, (the closest being Stourhead) - many of which have been used as film locations and all steeped in English history and charm.


The Coach House consists of kitchen, dining room, sitting room, downstairs w.c. and utility cupboard (washer/dryer) - upstairs there are two bedrooms (one double and one twin) and a bathroom with shower head attachment. Outside there is off road parking for one vehicle, a patio and a small fenced/gated garden. There is wifi at the property.

About Helen Watts

Helen works in the performing arts as a director and writer, and Brian is an architect.

Helen Watts purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Helen Watts chose Wiltshire

Originally from Shaftesbury we were looking for our first home together. When we bought Long Hill House no one had lived in the nearby coach house since the coachman and coach (mud floors, hayloft etc). It took us three years to extend and convert - and we love it!

What makes this cottage unique

It's a home from home close to lots of attractions.

Comfortable Stay with great location. Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 with 2 small children aged 6 and 3. We had a wonderful stay at the Coach House. Helen was there to greet us on arrival and very informative about the local area and things to do for the kids with lots of tips. The house itself is in a great location just off the a303 but tucked away in the cute village of Mere. We visited Longleat, Stourhead, Haynes Car Museum and StoneHenge. But there are lots of other things to do nearby if these don't float your boat. The cottage was well presented, clean and tidy and well equipped. Would not hesitate to recommend.

A little hidden gem!

  • 4 of 5

A great little base for exploring this beautiful part of the world. The Coach House was ideal for myself and 2 daughters (aged 9 and 16). Everything was very clean with very comfortable beds, very cosy indeed. Helen the owner was also always on hand and very helpful if required. Will be visiting The Coach House again and would highly recommend. Also excellent value for money.

Fantastic stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights and it was wonderful! Helen was lovely and made us feel very welcome. The cottage is beautiful and in a great location. We visited Bath, Stourhead, Haynes International Motor Museum and spent one day in Weston Super-mere. It's ideal for anyone who wants a sight seeing trip as it's so close to so many great spots. Would highly recommend to anyone and hopefully we will visit again next year!
