The Crown Inn sits right at the heart of the village of Cholderton on the A338 ten miles north of Salisbury on the border of Wiltshire and Hampshire in the picturesque Bourne Valley.

Take a leisurely stroll around the village along the river and visit St Nicholas' Church with a wealth of history. Cholderton is surrounded by beautiful countryside which is home to many footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes. Along these paths and routes you can take in Stonehenge, Old Sarum Castle, Salisbury Cathedral, Wylye Valley and Salisbury Plain.

Just a few minutes from the Crown Inn is the Cholderton Charlie's Farm a Rare Breed Survival Trust (RBST) registered Rare Breeds Farm. Activities throughout the day provide plenty of opportunity to interact with all sorts of animals, many of which are rare breeds. You can also enjoy their indoor play barn, tractor trailer rides, tree top trail, zip wire and woodland walks.

Also close by is the Cholderton Farm Shop selling organic fruit and vegetables, local free range meat and eggs, cakes, biscuits, jams and chutneys.

The surrounding Cholderton Estate is well known for its sustainable organic farming approach. To help fund its commitment, the Cholderton Estate chose to diversify its business interests including into what seemed like a natural extension, a woodland burial site, open to all.
