Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
With 3 ensuite bedrooms and set within a beautiful thatched walled garden Enford House Cottage is the perfect place for a relaxing & peaceful break in the english countryside but is also within easy reach of many tourist attractions including Stonehenge, Avebury & Salisbury.
The cottage is an attached wing of the 18th Century, Grade 2 listed manor house (Enford House) and is a home away from home with comfortable beds, good quality bedlinen and towels and a well equipped kitchen and all bedrooms have an ensuite bath or shower room. The owners live in the main house next door.
The property is surrounded by the wall garden which is situated next to the village church and beyond that fields. The village pub, which serves good food, is 2 minutes walk away. The cottage is child friendly - the garden is enclosed by the wall. The entrance gate can be shut to make sure no children or dogs can get onto the village road. Wifi is available
There is a games room in a seperate barn close to the cottage which houses a table tennis table and table football.
The walled garden is there to be enjoyed and for those with children, (shared with the owners children) there is a large trampoline, swing and slide, football net and chickens. When there are spare eggs, and vegetables from the garden, we will put a selection in the cottage fridge for your arrival (please note this is seasonal!)
