The cottages have been expertly converted from original farm buildings and are situated on a 370 acre working dairy farm.

There are walks across the farm which includes bluebell woodland and a stretch of the River Avon. The cottages overlook the beautiful Avon Valley with magnificent, south facing views over rolling grassland, the Wiltshire Avon and beyond to the distant Marlborough Downs.Other facilitiesThe services of a beautician (ideal for hen parties), offering facials, hairdressing, pedicures etc. and a personal trainer (aerobics) are also available (N.B. must be booked in advance).Maunditts Park Farm Cottages can be booked jointly for larger parties.
