Escape to Your New Home in the Country

With nature and rural living opportunities in abundance, Wiltshire is proving to be a destination of choice for those seeking a simpler life, away from the hustle and bustle of city and town living. 

At CG Fry, we choose locations to develop new homes in that offer quality and style in areas often away from city centres, where you and your families can enjoy some rural idyll and while away your spare time at some of the UK’s most important heritage and nature locations. That’s exactly why we chose Mere in Wiltshire as a perfect area to offer for our home buyers to enjoy the wonders of the Wiltshire countryside.  

Woodlands in Mere offers exactly that, within easy reach to access all the essential amenities in nearby high streets, yet with the countryside on your doorstep. Plus, easy commuting to larger towns and cities in the county of Wiltshire and surrounding counties for work and leisure means that your new house in the country offers the best of both worlds.  

Where is Mere in Wilshire?

Mere is a great choice if you’re seeking to relocate to Wilshire. It’s a charming little town located at the foot of the South Wiltshire Downs close to the Somerset and Dorset borders, and just 23 miles from the magnificent Cathedral city of Salisbury.  

It is easily accessed by A roads thanks to the proximity of the A303 and direct train links from the mainline train station in nearby Gillingham to London and Exeter. Not only does it offer easy city access, you can reach the beautiful Jurassic Coast to the south in around an hour, and spend endless hours in your spare time exploring the coast and taking in some of the most breathtaking views that England has to offer.  

What Does Mere Have to Offer?

Everyday necessities are extremely well catered for as Mere plays host to a variety of independent shops, as well as a Co-op store, a post office, doctor and dental surgery, a chemist, a library and information centre, a primary school, pubs, cafes and its own Police and Fire Stations. 

Mere is home to a vibrant and very active community, with a wide range of groups and organisations catering for all ages and interests – from numerous sports to amateur dramatics, walking, gardening, art and even railway modelling, to name but a few. Annual events include the Mere Carnival and a Literary Festival. 

The town has a rich history and a warm community, that makes locals proud and newcomers welcome. Its lively local market boasts an assortment of unique finds, artisanal goods, and fresh produce, and creates a pleasant village hub in the charming medieval square. All of which will be in easy reach if you choose to make your new home in the country in Mere, Wilshire.  

Wiltshire countryside some of the best the UK has to offer

Large parts of the surrounding Wiltshire countryside have been designated as areas of outstanding natural beauty and provide many opportunities to enjoy nature and explore sites of historic and archaeological interest. With around 15 Natural Trust sites offering stunning gardens, ancient sites and grand manor homes in Wiltshire, you won’t be short of places to visit. If you enjoy walking, the rolling chalk downs would be the perfect place, extended west from Salisbury Plain and with spectacular open views and a historic castle mound at the end. The route climbs to the north of Mere, descends to cross the Wylye Valley, and circles back home via Castle Hill. 

On the southern edge of the town and just a few minutes walk from the centre of Mere and its amenities, C G Fry and Son’s Woodlands development is entering the final phase of construction and is scheduled to be completed by Winter 2023. 

This final phase consists of a selection of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes constructed to C G Fry & Son’s high standards by our Site Manager, winner of the NHBC ‘Pride in the Job’ Quality Award for the past 5 consecutive years. You won’t regret choosing to make one of our houses for sale in the country your new home when you appreciate the high quality and attention to detail that all our homes in Mere offer.
