About the home
As soon as you arrive at Hinton Lodge, you will feel you have escaped to a slower pace of life. Situated in a country lane you are away from busy roads and traffic yet close to rail and road connections for Bath, Bristol and London.
Hinton Lodge is quintessentially English which simply oozes character and is on one level, so it is perfect for families with young children. They can enjoy seeing the rabbits jumping through the grass and feed Magic and Romeo, our two beautiful horses; you can sit in the garden and enjoy the views!
For a romantic getaway, or your honeymoon, Hinton Lodge provides a peaceful idyll and you can walk to the famous Linnet Pub in the nearby village, which is renowned for great food and wine.
In Winter you can light the log fire, which all our guests say is a wonderful feature of staying at Hinton Lodge. There is also full central heating, to ensure you are warm in the cooler months of the year and Winter guests enjoy the atmosphere. Our library of DVDs will keep you entertained on rainy days.
We aim to make you welcome as soon as you arrive and aim to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. For instance, we have recently introduced an on-site pampering service, whereby you can book either a 40 minute Back, Neck and Shoulder massage or a 60 minute Full Body massage with our therapist who will do your treatment in the comfort of Hinton Lodge whilst you are staying there. So get pampered and relieve the stresses of every day life with a relaxing or deep tissue massage with Lynne. Please ask for more details once you have booked your holiday.

The Central Southern England / Wiltshire region
Bath will be high on your list of places to visit while you are staying at Hinton Lodge. A World Heritage City, with Georgian architecture and the Roman Baths, as well as numerous festivals throughout the year encompassing music, literature and food as well as the Christmas Market which sells festive and European gifts and produce.
The counties of Somerset and Wiltshire are rich in farmland and for this reason there are farmers markets and farm shops aplenty offering organic and fairtrade cheese, butter, milk, meat and chicken as well as locally made jams and chutneys. Enjoying local food, is what makes a visit to this area extra special.
Some of the picturesque towns nearby are Corsham, Bradford on Avon and the National Trust village of Lacock which is regularly used for filming, most recently the latest Judi Dench "Barchester Chronicles" to be screened in October and in the past, the Harry Potter films.
Avebury's stone circles create the most extraordinary atmosphere particularly if you can see them at dusk or dawn and archaeologists still struggle with the answer to why Silbury Hill was built. The same eerie feeling can also be found at Old Sarum and Old Waldour Castle, also look out for the white horses carved into a number of hillsides around the county.
Wiltshire spreads from the Cotswolds and Swindon in the north to the cathedral city of Salisbury in the south, from Bath in the west to Marlborough in the east. In its midst are bustling and traditional market towns such as Malmesbury, Bradford-on-Avon and Devizes which still serve the local farming communities as they have done for centuries.
The Devizes / Great Hinton area
There are a multitude of things to do from Hinton Lodge.
Hinton Lodge is conveniently located amidst a wide range of attractive places of interest and heritage sites such as:
Stonehenge and Avebury - within half an hour's drive you can visit the world's famous site of Stonehenge. Stonehenge was built 4000 years ago and its great stones still exert mystical fascination on thousands of visitors from all over the world every year. The slightly less well known but nonetheless fascinating stone circle site of Avebury offers an equally exciting atmosphere.
Bath - within 30 minutes, you will be able to visit Bath, one of the most beautiful cities in Britain with its famous Roman baths, its very attractive Royal Crescent, etc., as well as its great shopping and restaurants.
Salisbury - another city worth a mention, which is again within a reasonable drive (40 minutes). Salisbury offers much to its visitors with its beautiful cathedral, great shops, etc.
Longleat House, gardens, safari and children attractions provides a fantastic day out for the whole family. Children can't get enough of it!
A range of lovely little market towns such as Bradford-on-Avon (great antique shops), Devizes (its many famous canal locks), Melksham, Marlborough are all within easy distance and worth a visit. Don't miss Polly's Tea Room in Marlborough for its afternoon tea! Several picturesque villages such as Lacock and Castle Coombe are also well worth a visit.
If you are more of an outdoor type, you could always:
GO gliding at the Bannerdown gliding club during the weekends.
GO cycling on the Wiltshire Cycle Way - 2 adult bicycles are available for hire at Hinton Lodge.
GO walking on the White Horse Way.

This cottage was cozy and comfortable and is located in Steeple Ashton which is a quaint old town with a great pub, Long Arms, located nearby that serves delicious hot food and drinks. The location is great for exploring the English countryside, close to Bath, Bradford on Avon and Stonehenge! We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it!

In June 2011 we (4 adults) spend a couple of days in Hinton Lodge. Hinton Lodge is a very nice little cottage, with lots of privacy and all amenities that one would need. We felt very welcome with the fridge already stocked with some food and drinks. Wireless internet connection via a modem is available, although speed is (a bit) slow.
The owners, who live very close by, were very helpful and apologized for the spotty email connection – due to the location of the cottage. The cottage has a guest book with interesting information and reviews/descriptions of trips that previous renters have made – very informative!
One of the bedrooms in the cottage is a bit small (as stated on the website) but 2 adults of our company could sleep comfortable there anyway. The lodge is ideally suited for trips in Wiltshire and Sommerset. While at the lodge, we spend a (rainy) day going to Wells Chathedral, a beautiful and impressive building, and the Cheddar gorge. We also visited the extraordinary city of Bath, the stone circles of Stonehenge and Avebury and the medieval villages of Castle Combe and Lacock.
