I never thought of staying at a hostel before when travelling with my son but this one was so close to Stonehenge, I thought I’d give it a try for one night. It occurred to be such a great place. My son loved the farm and the place was very clean with great facilities. I would definitely stay there again! Highly recommended.
Stonehenge hostel is like a nice cottage with an actual farm and only 10 minutes away from Stonehenge. Highly recommended.
Generally clean and comfortable, including a kitchen with cooker, fridge/freezer, a living room with a TV and a nice, airy conservatory with sofas. It has a cafe attached to it, which does a great English breakfast and a gorgeous farm at the back which you can explore if you arrive before your check in time. Great view of the garden and roaming peacocks. Nice sized bathroom, friendly staff and good rate compared to other places in the area. Ideal location, only a 15-minute drive from Stonehenge. Will return.
Friendly staff, the lady at reception was lovely and helpful. Excellent little farm, nice cafe and all 10 mins drive from Stonehenge.
Great location but better if you have your own transport as is not close to any shops etc, but the local pub, The Crown does great food! A beautiful setting in the country, stunning views and very comfortable and relaxing. The rare breed farm is great for kids!
Great value self-catering accommodation. Family farm attraction (including cafe) right next door. Near Stonehenge.
I loved how quiet and relaxing this hostel was. We were backpackers with no car, so I was a bit worried about getting here, but it turns out that you can take the bus from Salisbury to the stop at the end of the road for just a few pounds. Then, it’s a 15-minute walk down a gorgeous country road. We also loved that hostel guests could explore the farm for free – I definitely recommend feeding the animals! The baby goats were amazing and so were the tiny ponies. Also, they have some really weird ducks that will follow you around.

Very cute and cosy place to stay. It lets you escape the bustle and noise of the city which was awesome. The staff was super friendly, and I enjoyed staying here!
