“Didn't want to go home!”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2016

The coach house has been beautifully renovated and tastefully furnished with very comfy beds and quality bed linen, the owners Fiona and Matthew are very friendly and relaxed and are on hand to help if needed at any time but without being intrusive, lovely grounds, plenty of space to walk dogs or play ball, tennis courts and pool a bonus, lovely views, I imagine spectacular views in summer we went in April weather was unpredictable. Lots of highly rated pubs in the surrounding areas to eat, we had a lovely roast at the Black swan in Devizes. Stonehenge and NT Lacock village worth a visit.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for taking the trouble to write a review and hope we may see you all again.

“Lovely house in a beautiful location”

Reviewed 8 Dec 2015

We had a long weekend in the Coach House in November, it was warm and welcoming and the log burner made it very cosy. I was the perfect base to explore Avebury and Wiltshire. Fiona's gift of homemade muffins were delicious and much appreciated after getting lost on the way there!

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your kind words and I am so pleased you enjoyed the muffins. I hope we may see you again soon. Have a Happy Christmas

“Lovely cottage and gorgeous scenery”

Reviewed 23 Nov 2015

We spent the weekend in this beautifully renovated cottage. The surroundings are stunning- great for long walks! The living / kitchen area is a great social space, the rooms are spacious and the beds are extremely comfortable. Fiona was helpful and very kind to us. We would definitely go again!

Owner's reply: So pleased you had such a lovely weekend and hope to see you again.

“Fantastic Holiday Accomodation”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2015

When visiting the UK from Australia we would not miss staying at the Coach House. We stayed a week at "The Coach House" in early June. 2015...again! It was our second visit to this wonderful home, having spent a week here in 2013, and really enjoying the experience. It is such a beautiful, relaxing and well appointed home away-from-home for us, with Fiona and Matthew being helpful and perfect hosts. Fiona has always greeted us with a special personal welcome as well as a treat (this time) with some of her special home made marmalade another goodies. We love staying here as it is a great base to visit the many beautiful treasures that surround it. We hope to be back ASAP!

Owner's reply: It is SO incredibly special to have guests who choose to return. The ultimate compliment for which we are both extremely grateful. I hope you are both enjoying being back home in Australia after your travels and we very much look forward to welcoming you again.

“Nice family holidays”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2015

We spent a week with our two kids and dog at the coach house. The kids loved the pool and my wife and I the tennis court. Very frindly hosts who even took care of our our dog one day when we've viseted Bath and Bristol. The Coach House is a good starting point to visit the sights in that area. Could have been more dishes but so the dishwasher had to run more ;-)

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to review The Coach House. I will put some more dishes in the cupboard! Enjoy the rest of your summer.

“Wonderful!”

Reviewed 6 May 2014

Beautiful cottage, highly recommended. Fiona was incredibly helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. The children loved the outdoor space, farm animals and the very friendly dogs. Great location. We will be visiting again. Thank you!

“Great Stay”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2014

Comfortable accommodation, one of the warmest we have stayed in. Its location is idyllic in fabulous countryside with lovely views from the bedroom windows. Fiona, the owner, was attentive and concerned to ensure the stay was a success without being intrusive. The accommodation was excellent, large airy rooms, slept very well in the very comfortable beds, lovely large ensuite bathrooms one with shower one with bath. I would not hesitate to recommend the Coach House to family and friends and given the opportunity would stay again. The location was ideal for visiting various interesting local towns and villages. Shops etc very close by, lovely local walks from the cottage and lots of nice pubs near by.

“Feels like home!”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2013

From the moment we arrived at Coach House we felt like we were at home. The house is spacious, bright, well equipped and welcoming. The little extras, fresh flowers in every room, wine in the refrigerator and cakes on the table, were greatly appreciated upon arrival. The views and walks in the Wiltshire countryside are refreshing. I hope to return to Coach House soon and often!

“Beautiful property and great location”

Reviewed 21 Dec 2012

Three of us stayed for nearly a week in this lovely home: the renovations of the old coach house have been sensitively and practically completed so that it has a comfortable, even luxurious feel. The beds and bedding are of very good quality, the bathrooms clean and large, and the views are spectacular. We cooked for ourselves in the well stocked kitchen. Using this as a base, we visited many of the beautiful little villages nearby, and the significant sites. Fiona made us very welcome. I could not recommend this place more highly.
