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.

A quintessential part of life in the country is the village pub. Once just a place where the yokel locals quenched their thirst with copious pints of beer or cider and you were lucky to get a ploughmans, now just about every pub offers a varied menu and a reasonable choice of wines.

The phrase ‘gastropub’ is now in common use but is perhaps slightly demeaning and dismissive of those hostelries that serve truly great food that has been locally sourced, is fresh and cooked with style, imagination and skill. We would rather describe them as ‘fine dining pubs’ and our region is blessed with having a number of them including some that have come to the positive attention of widely read national restaurant critics.

Local country pubs

For some, a good local can be as influential for when looking to buy a country property as a good school is for others. It is not uncommon to have buyers registering with Rural View saying that they are looking for a house within a five mile radius of the Beckford for example.

We can not claim to have visited every pub on the list below, after all we are far too busy selling and letting our clients’ homes but we would be happy to discuss our personal favourites.
