Tisbury lies within the Cranborne Chase & West Wilts Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and features a number of important environmental and historical sites. They include the Fonthill Lakes, the headwaters of the River Nadder and Old Wardour Castle, managed by English Heritage. The castle was originally built in the 14th century; it is now a romantic ruin in a beautiful setting beside a lake. Tisbury also features a magnificent 15th century tithe barn at Place Farm, just to the east of the village which is the largest thatched barn in the country.
Tisbury today is a thriving village having a prominent 12th century church with its own 4000-year-old yew tree, a wide range of interesting shops, three pubs and a café. Tisbury is an excellent base from which to explore the countryside of the Nadder Valley, offering fantastic walking trails and great cycling opportunities.
