Description

The Milk House is a beautifully refurbished old dairy with wonderful views over our farmland and wood. It is within a few minutes of Erlestoke woods, the Salisbury Plain & the Erlestoke 18 hole Golf Club. Stonehenge, Bath, Salisbury & Marlborough are all within 30 minutes. There are two double bedrooms (all king size beds), one with an effectively ensuite bathroom, a twin room and a single bedroom with a toilet and basin in the next room. There is a family bathroom upstairs with a beautiful antique roll top bath which the two upstairs bedrooms share. We have furnished it with antique prints, furniture and old photographs of our historic dairy. We have taken a great deal of care to make it supremely comfortable with all the modern conveniences: lighting, WiFi, playstations and everything you could need in a modern kitchen to cook and to entertain yet with a traditional touch.

There are many different walks to do directly from the house. We are next to the Salisbury Plain, the largest

There are many different walks to do directly from the house. We are next to the Salisbury Plain, the largest area of unspoilt chalk land in Europe. Erlestoke Woods are even closer and no one can miss the carpet of bluebells every spring. We have our own huge vegetable patch where you can pick produce in season right by the cottage and our own eggs from our kaleidescope of home-bred chickens which you are welcome to collect.

The house and buildings were built in the 18th century, and our wood was where the original saxon settlement here was founded, with coins still being found very recently by our neighbours. We are in idyllic surroundings with wonderful views over the edge of the Salisbury Plain. There is so much to do nearby yet it is lovely enough to just relax and do as much or as little as you want.

Location description from owner

The England region

Wiltshire has so many attactions. The mighty standing stones of Avebury and Stonehenge are within 20 minutes; the medieval city of Salisbury with its magnificent Cathedral is within half an hour, and the cosmopolitan city of Bath is about 30 minutes away. Longleat Safari and Adventure Park is 20 minutes away and Stourhead with its wonderful gardens very close to that. There are many National Trust properties to go and visit, with dozens of historical Houses, Castles and gardens within 40 minutes. With over 6,000 years of history Wiltshire has attractions galore.

Almost half of the county designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Wiltshire has over 8,200 paths for walkers and cyclists. Youll also find plenty of tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, as well as interestingly different festivals and events throughout the year.

Erlestoke

Erlestoke is a beautiful village with its own pub and very helpful garage. The Salisbury Plain is minutes away, and the Erlestoke woods even close.

Devizes is an historic market town with a colourful medieval past. The town enjoys a rich heritage of fine Georgian houses and a 19th century castle built on the site of a Norman stronghold.
Devizes has boasted a castle for a thousand years, during the Middle Ages it was the scene of siege and bloodshed as Queen Matilda fought to keep her English crown.
A fascinating Medieval Trail leaflet chronicles these turbulent events and takes the visitor around the town to points of interest. The Wiltshire Heritage Museum, is home to outstanding collections tracing the history of Wiltshire over the last 6,000 years.
During the 17th century another mighty confrontation took place at Roundway Down, just outside the town, when Royalist forces soundly defeated Cromwell's troops. Today, colourful re-enactments can be enjoyed during the summer months.

When it comes to shopping and eating out Devizes has retained its individuality and offers enchanting cobbled alleyways with specialist retailers, cafes and traditional pubs. Markets abound, both outdoors in the Market Place (market day is Thursday) and indoors at The Shambles.

Wadworth's celebrated brewery remains in its original town location and their brewer's dray drawn by mighty Shire Horses is a regular and much-loved sight on the streets. The brewery has recently opened a Visitor Centre and tours of the site are also offered.

Events throughout the year include the Devizes Festival of arts in June, Devizes International Street Festival in late August, Devizes Carnival in early September, the colourful Food and Drink Festival in July and the Christmas Festival featuring a parade of hundreds of lanterns, held on the last Friday of November.


The Kennet & Avon canal passes through the town and the famous flight of 29 locks are easily accessible on foot and is a wonderful walk.

“Superb Accommodation and setting”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2016

We had a fabulous weekend at The Milk House with six adults and two teenage girls. It was was clean and tidy with everything we needed. Beautifully decorated. All the linen smelt lovely and fresh. Rebecca was a warm and friendly host; generously allowing us to help ourselves to flowers and veg from the garden. We all felt very relaxed and extremely comfortable. I particularly enjoyed the large kitchen where there was a good supply of crockery, utensils and condiments making it a pleasure to feed our crowd. The views of the woods and garden were most enjoyable. I only wished we had stayed longer, it was hard to leave and we all want to go back again.

“Lovely Quiet setting, very accommodating helpful owner”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2016

We stayed with 3 children from 14 to 8 and dog, and had a fab break. THe Milk house may look small from the outside but it easily accommodated the 5 of us and we could have put a sixth in without any problem. Kitchen, had most things, clean and spacious. Bathroom clean, shower very good. Grounds were fantastic, trampoline, large, a bit of a hazard, due to no net, but we all came away in one piece. Dog loved it, and made friends, with owners dogs. Definitely going back.

“A Beautiful Cottage”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2012

We found the Milk House to be excellent in all ways. Newly modernised (late 2011) all the fittings are of very good quality - the kitchen in particular was practical and well appointed. The cottage itself is very spacious; we were four in number but never felt cramped at all - a party of six would still be comfortable. The location is idyllic, being in a very rural location just on the outskirts of Salisbury Plain and the house has a vegetable garden and fruit orchard from which guests are free to pick produce when available. (There is a group of chickens also, but sadly, we were unable to find any eggs.) All in all a great base for a relaxing holiday, or a base to explore the Wiltshire and Somerset countryside.

“A superb warm and friendly place to stay”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2012

We stayed at The Milk House with our 2 sons aged 8 and 12, and our dog. We found the accommodation to be very well equiped with nothing else we would have needed. The cottage had such a lovely warm feel to it so much so we didnt want to leave, and asked the owner if we could stay another night - which we did. The large garden with trampoline for the boys and the use of a bbq was a great addition. Our youngest son was invited by Tony the Farmer to feed the lambs in the morning, which he enjoyed immensely. We also had a couple of good walks through the fields with our dog which was very enjoyable. The owners are very helpful, accommodating and friendly, and we would definately make this a place we return to every year.
