Bella’s ThoroughFare is set opposite the Historical Roundway Down where The Battle of Roundway Down was fought on 13 July 1643. And is considered one of the key battles in the English Civil War.
Footpaths lead from the field, woodlands close by or a ten minute walk before you are up on to the Down itself.
Or just enjoy the countryside with the sound of horses, sheep and other wildlife.
