The town itself is noted for its wide High Street and architectural splendour, dating in parts back to the 15th Century, and for the famous Merlins Mound in the grounds of Marlborough College. There are many places in the town and surrounding villages to eat and drink, the High Street enjoying a 'Cafe Culture' particularly during the Marlborough Jazz Festival and during the Summer School at Marlborough College. Marlborough also has a wide variety of shops and markets twice a week.

"Comfortable and convenient"

This suited us perfectly for a week as we were house-hunting rather than having a holiday. It is very accessible on the old A4 and well placed for the area we wanted to explore. Marlborough is very close by car. The accommodation is fairly basic but has a lovely warm wood stove and adequate facilities for cooking, washing and so on. The only down sides are that the A4 is very noisy in the second bedroom and there is absolutely no mobile phone signal in the cottage (O2 and Vodaphone). The promised internet wireless didn't work so that was irritating for us, although holiday users may not be bothered.

"Charming place set in the heart of Wiltshire"

We had such a wonderful time staying at Barrow farm, the place was full of old charm and beautifully presented. We had such a warm welcome from the owners who were very kind and helpful. Travelling from Australia with small children was stressful, however the homely feel, comfortable beds and lush surroundings soon made us relax and feel settled. We shall definitely love to return one day.

"Warm and comfortable accommoadation, friendly owners"

The Barn was a comfortable and very easy to run holiday home. The woodburner stove was already alight when we arrived which was very welcoming. As all the rooms were adjacent to each other there were no stairs to go up and down, although there were a few steps from the parking area into the barn. Everything was clean and tidy and the beds were already made up for us, towels were also provided.
There were some interesting books for all ages as well as some games to play. There was a television and also free internet access, a blessing having a 12 year old with us! We found the surrounding area was within easy distance to visit some interesting places during our 4 day stay. Would be very happy to be able to make a return visit.
