About the property

Unique two bedroom apartment with unparalled views of Salisbury Cathedral

With your own resident's parking bay just seconds from your independent front door, this quirky, attractive apartment offers versatile accommodation over two floors. Entering via a generous lobby area you proceed up a staircase to the first floor where you will find a well sized, comfortable lounge with a beautiful original sash bay window overlooking the Close and Cathedral lawns. A good range of seating, TV and artwork. This leads to a large, light and well equipped modern kitchen/diner with microwave, toaster, kettle, oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge and washing machine, iron and ironing board. Provision has been made for four guests in this area.

Just off the kitchen is a good sized modern bathroom furnished with a bath, shower fitting, wash hand basin and toilet.

The dual aspect master bedroom is delightfully furnished with a double bed, drawers and hanging space plus built in secure cupboard. Seating within the bay window offers the perfect vantage point from which to watch the world go by as you start the day.

The second floor is accessed via a very steep and curving staircase, suitable only for able bodied adults. Here you will find two characterful areas, one small double bedroom with a window overlooking the North Walk and a further generous area which can be used as a dressing or relaxing area.

You will notice the ecclesiastical touches throughout the apartment in keeping with its heritage and location. Church chairs and prayer book stands blend in well with contemporary furnishings offering you a special blend of both worlds.

What makes this apartment unique

Belle View sits on the very edge of The Close in an unrivalled position on the North Lawn with uninterrupted views of the Cathedral.

On your doorstep, Salisbury Cathedral is an exceptional example of Early English Gothic architecture, the main body of the cathedral being built in just 38 years, between 1220 and 1258.

You are free to roam around the public areas of the Close which extends to 80 acres in total

Salisbury is ideally situated for trips to the coast, the New Forest National Park, Stonehenge with good rail links to London and the west country. We have the famous Salisbury International Arts Festival running every May and June. A well reputed Playhouse and City Hall, which host many shows. Local countryside fairs run throughout spring to autumn. However, right on your doorstep you have the largest and most lovely Cathedral Close in Britain extending to about 80 acres. Home to beautiful Grade I and II listed houses, two museums, a National Trust property, three tearooms and two restaurants. The magnificent Cathedral just yards away, you can stroll across the lawns to attend nightly Evensong at which our world class choir sing, enjoy the art frequently on display in the Cathedral or spend time in the beautiful Chapter House where the 1215 Magna Carta is displayed, one of only four copies remaining in the world. For more energetic visitors a behind the scenes Tower Tour takes you to the base of the Cathedral's soaring spire, the tallest in the UK. Via the 332 steps taken in easy stages you enter the Cathedral roof spaces where the ancient wood structures and hollow spire with its scaffolding can be observed. The views from the top of the Tower are unparalleled, looking way beyond the city to the surrounding countryside.

Old Sarum the Cathedral's original pre 13th Century home, is just minutes away by car and Stonehenge a 20 minute drive.

Gorgeous View in Salisbury

  • 5 of 5

That apartment is simply overwhelming. You could sit or hours just watching the cathedral and the people on the green. Even better at night, when the lights are on.

Perfectly equipped with everything, great welcome gifts, nor parking problems and in the heart of Salisbury with all the shops, bars, restaurants you need...

We definitely recommend this holiday flat.

Amazing location, excellent facilities, extra welcoming touches

  • 5 of 5

Belle View must have the best view in all of England. There is literally nothing but the lawn between the apartment and one of England's iconic and most beautiful buildings, Salisbury Cathedral. We spent hours just watching the play of light and the clouds, and the peregrine falcons. It was also a great pleasure to be able to just walk over early in the morning and explore the cathedral before the tourists arrived, or to drop in on evensong spur of the moment.

The facilities are excellent -- comfortable beds, big kitchen, adjacent reserved parking space. Although there is no free wi-fi, Virgin's cafe service works fine in the apartment; it costs 10 pounds for a week. There was also a thoughtful welcome package -- cheese, bread, biscuits, milk, excellent coffee.

Don't miss this one if you ever get a chance to stay here.
