About East Knoyle
East Knoyle is situated where the Wiltshire countryside blends into Dorset. The landscape is quite stunning, it has a dramatically changing face of sweeping pastures and hillsides, dotted with a variance of pleasant buildings ranging from St.Mary's Church with its wonderful chancel showing plasterwork from 1639, to quaint thickly thatched cottages and ancient East Knoyle Mill.
This is magnificent walking country, from The Green reached half a mile up hill there are superb views. Venturing into Dorset the walks take in landmarks such as Gold Hill in Shaftsbury, Win Green, The Melbury Beacon and Hambledon Hill, all of these give equally stunning views of changing landscapes.
There are a couple of good inns in the area, the Fox and Hounds is a traditional thatched pub, with an excellent reputation for friendliness, food and ale, this can be found close to The Green, and the other - The Seymour Arms, can be found in The Street.
East Knoyle is within easy reach of Keysley Down, Brimsdown Hill and the delightful group of villages, Kingston Deverill, Monkton Deverill and Brixton Deverill. It is also just a short drive from the market town of Shaftsbury.
