The nearby market town of Warminster has a good selection of independent shops, supermarkets, including a branch of Waitrose, banks and a post office as well as several good primary and secondary schools and a small hospital. There is a farmers' market once a week selling local produce. There are many outdoor pursuits locally including walks in the nearby woodland on the Longleat estate and golf at Warminster. The beautiful lake at Shearwater is a short distance away, where there is a sailing club along with good coarse fishing and a small thatched tearoom. The village also boasts its own vineyard producing award winning wines.

A railway station in Warminster provides a service to London Waterloo either direct or via Salisbury. Tisbury is within easy reach and also provides access to London Waterloo.

• Believed to date from 1725 with later additions, Foxholes House is an attractive and spacious family house with brick and render elevations under a slate roof.
• Both the drawing room and dining room are elegantly proportioned and benefit from attractive features which include wooden shutters, sash windows and fireplaces with wooden surrounds. In addition there is a sitting room with wood burning stove and quarry tiled floor which has a door leading out to the garden.
• The 27ft kitchen/breakfast room has a range of fitted units with wooden work surfaces, central island, oil fired 2 oven Aga, electric oven and induction hob. Adjoining the kitchen/breakfast room is the sitting room which would also work well as a family playroom.
• On the first floor there are 6 bedrooms, 4 bath/shower rooms (one of which is en suite) and a separate W.C.

• The gardens lie predominantly to the south of the house and have been designed as a series of rooms. Nearest the house is a well-stocked flower garden surrounding an area of lawn and a seating area under a vine, rose and jasmine covered pergola. This leads through to an orchard which has apple, plum and cherry trees. In addition, there is an impressive fenced vegetable garden with greenhouse and fruit cage. To the east of the house is a flat area of grass that was formerly a grass tennis court.
• A cattle grid separates the house and garden from the paddock which benefits from a water supply and 2 bay field shelter with tack room
