West Knoyle is a small village and civil parish in Southwest England, close to the southern edge of Salisbury plain. The village is 2.5 miles east of Mere and 8 miles south of Warminster. The A303 trunk road passes about 0.75 miles north of the village.
The Monarchs Way long distance footpath passes through the village. Mackintosh Davidson Wood or Hang Wood to the southeast is a 20.3 hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest, notified in 1986. This beautiful, varied wood is a mixture of newly planted areas and ancient semi-natural woodland (more than 400 years). Fields, rides, glades and open areas add variety and increase wildlife habitat. There is information at the site and is well worth a visit.
Bush Farm Bison Centre
Take a tour and see the Bison, Elk, Raccoons, Guanaco and chipmunks. There are 30 acres of oak woodland walks with secret gardens together with picnic and play areas to enjoy. There is a museum and a display of Native American art and artefacts. Try the restaurant for refreshments and light meals or the shop where you can buy bison or elk meat. Have a go at making your own bison burgers as enjoyed by the BBC film crew who visited here to film Countryfile.
