We spent a fantastic week in this lovely secluded cottage. The cottage is located on the edge of the property bordered by woodlands and fields. Our host, Fenella, was terrific and she has equipped the cottage to an exceptionally high standard. Highly recommended!
Very well equipped cottage, SPOTLESSLY clean and comfortable. Easy access to property and stand alone shower. Grounds overlooking woodland area and pretty garden. Owners are welcoming and friendly, there if you need them and invisible if you don't.
Excellent location for countryside loving people. We totally recommend a stay here and you will want to come back again before too long.
We booked very last minute which wasn't a problem at all, and had a sainsburys delivery arrive before we did which Fenella accepted and even put the cold stuff in the fridge for us.
The roads leading to the cottage can have some large puddles in the rain (but we were on a motorcycle so a car would be no problem!), but it was easy to find with the postcode in a satnav. Upon arrival we were made to feel very welcome straight away, Fenella told us everything we needed to know about the cottage (heating, water, check-out etc) but we were left to our own devices after that which was lovely.
The cottage itself was spotless and very well equipped, even with fresh flowers, cake and a lovely bottle of wine. It was lovely coming back to the clean warm house after a day of getting rained on while hiking!
We ate in the Seven Stars pub which is about 10 minutes walk away, the food was outstanding and we can recommend the Czech lager they have very highly! The people there were also very chatty and welcoming and we got some great recommendations of things to do during our stay from them.
Overall a perfect short break, wish we could have seen the bluebell woods behind the cottage in bloom but just a few weeks too early. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet location with easy access to some lovely countryside and walking spots.
A clean and well appointed cottage in a pleasant rural setting. Good walking area in easy reach of Malborough and Devizes.
Thanks Fenella for such a warm welcome! We stayed just three nights and the cottage was the perfect place to relax and unwind -- a very secluded spot, really comfortable bed and all amenities were to a very high standard. The garden and woodland beyond are so peaceful and beautiful. There are several great pubs within 15 min drive and we had excellent meals at two of them. A great spot for walks too with the choice of the canal toe path on your doorstep and the Wessex downs and Savernake Forest just a wee drive away. We'd love to come back sometime. Highly Recommended!
