"A Gem of a property"
This house was a true find in the middle of the town. We thought we'd missed it but once off the main road and into the courtyard it was like entering a different world. The house was lovely and well equipped and really felt like a true home. It was great being so close to the town yet the noise from the town was unperceivable. A great place to stay and well appointed with a superb kitchen and comfy beds.
Thankyou for giving West View House such a positive review. We try very hard to keep the house to a good standard and want our guests to feel totally at home during their stay. If you would like to stay with us again in the future we would be really happy to hear from you. Best wishes - Richard and Sue

"Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!"
I stayed here with 6 of my friends and had the most lovely time. Rich and Sue are lovely and talkative and made it feel like our home. They are happy to answer any questions and recommend day trips. The town is also lovely and peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay and couldn't say a negative thing about it. We're even thinking about making it a yearly visit! Look no further this is your best choice!
Thanks so much for the great review. If you would like to book the house again in the future we'd be happy to hear from you. So pleased that you all enjoyed your weekend in Wiltshire. Best wishes - Richard and Sue

"Brilliant house, execellent location, helpful friendly hosts!"
We stayed for four nights in West House, and is was beautiful. It is very spacious house (we are a family of four), with lovely comfy beds and all the creature comforts. We made good use of the lovely little garden and ate pretty much all our meals outdoors. It is ideally situated walking distance from the market square in Devizes, and central for al the wonderful sights in Wiltshire and surrounds. Richard and Sue were very helpful and accommodating, and booking from NZ couldn't have been easier. They were also full of helpful advice from where to visit, how to get there and where to get the best pint!! We would most definitely stay again if our travels take us to that area again.
Many thanks for your lovely comments. We hope that you had a great trip home and would be very happy to hear from you again if you would like to stay at the house any time in the future. Best wishes - Richard and Sue

"Beautiful house in a great location."
We had a wonderful time staying at the house. Richard and Sue were incredibly welcoming and helpful, and the house was spotless and very well-equipped. It's possibly the best kitchen I have ever cooked in! The location is perfect both in terms of proximity to the town on foot and in terms of access to the gorgeous rolling countryside and nearby National Trust properties by car. Overall, it was incredible value for money and myself, my husband and our 4 friends all had a fabulous time.
Many thanks for your lovely review of our property. We have tried very hard to make it a home from home experience for all our guests. If you would like to stay again we would be very happy to hear from you. Best wishes Richard and Sue
