I booked this cottage for a last minute short break for myself, 12 old son and our dog. Everything we could possibly need and more was provided, including a lovely welcome basket meaning I could have that all important cuppa after a long journey before finding the shops. There is plenty to do locally and slightly further afield. We enjoyed the local wallks with the dog and days out at Longleat and Devizes which were both within easy reach by car. Fabulous cottage, great host and we definitely can't wait to go again.

We stayed at Christmas Cottage for one week in August. The lovely quaint cottage is very old with beams and low ceilings but in excellent condition. Just straight out of a postcard. You don't need to bring anything, everything is provided, there is even a welcome basket filled with treats awaiting you. The cottage is very clean, it has a lovely garden and is located near all the places worth visiting in Wiltshire (Avebury, Stonehenge, Bath). We have tried and tested several cottages in Wiltshire over the past years, but this one wins with flying colours.

Pretty good home, a bit difficult to find as the door in not directly on the street, look for a small wooded gate with #18 on it, just on the corner of the street.
Clean and cozy place, well maintain and very well furnished. Groceries are at 2 min walk.
Every things are really as described, nos surprise
