“Delightful Barn Conversion”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2018

Curlew Cottage was delightful and perfect for our week away. The location was exactly what we were looking for, surrounded by open countryside, yet within walking distance of local pubs and shops. The property is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The Underfloor heating was very efficient, keeping the temperature just right and having a decent sized TV and WI-FI with good bandwidth was a real bonus for evenings in. The views from the cottage were impressive, with big skies in all directions. We love walking and with the ridgeway only a field away we were able to walk to several local villages and historic sites straight from the door. We were fortunate with the late summer weather and had a really great week. We are looking forward to our next visit.

“Amazing location!! Beautiful countryside views! Great place to unwind!”

“Wonderful stay in a fantastic barn”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2017

Wonderfully renovated barn, lots of space and room for 3 adults and 1 child. Great kitchen with everything you need. Lots of board games for the kids. Great location, close to pubs, shops and Avebury. Would definately stay again if in the area. The hosts are very easy to deal with and helpful. Only comment would be, took us a while to work out the heating as was on about 30 degrees when we arrived.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, glad you had a great stay. Maddy

3 x couple and 1 x dog looking for the perfect location to celebrate and see in 2017! Well we found it in Curlew Cottage. Fabulous property, great location which was ideal for our group and the facilities were amazing. You won't and can't go wrong staying here. Thank you and we really hope to be back.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your fabulous review! So pleased you had such a lovely time. Would love to host you again sometime! :)

“Lovely barn conversion”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2016

Clean and spacious barn conversion. Peaceful with great views over open countryside but with plenty of things to see and do close by. Plenty of room for 3 generations to sit around the dining table. The underfloor heating meant the open plan living area was wonderfully warm even when cold outside. Well equipped kitchen and utility area. It would have been nice to have a shower in the family bathroom in addition to the one in the en-suite. The owner was very helpful and quickly replied to any queries prior to our booking.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Glad you had an enjoyable stay.

“Very nice barn in peaceful location. Very central.”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2016

Very nice barn conversion. Enough space for a large family (4 teenagers). Very comfortable beds. Peaceful location but very central too...we spent one week and visited Bath, Oxford, Stonehenge, Salisbury, Highclere Castle and even the Harry Potter Studios near London. Très belle location. La maison est grande, spacieuse et lumineuse, la literie très confortable. Magnifique vue sur les champs depuis le séjour et les chambres. L'endroit est très central et idéal pour visiter Bath, Oxford, Stonehenge, Salisbury, Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey)...tous situés à 45-60 minutes environ. Nous avons même piqué une pointe jusqu'aux studios Harry Potter près de Londres.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself and we look forward to welcoming you back to Curlew Cottage again in the future. Kind regards Madeleine

“Great house in super relaxing location.”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2016

Access was very easy. The converted barn was very open and made for a friendly atmosphere. The standard of cleanliness was high and the cottage was very well equipped with washing machine, dryer etc and warm dry spaces, useful for days of bad weather. The underfloor heating and double glazing was so effective that in terrible weather it was enjoyable to sit inside and watch outside. Deer visited the garden. A great place.

Owner's reply: So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Please feel free to book again! Thank you for your review.

“Great location, beautiful cottage”

Reviewed 28 Mar 2016

Our Easter weekend at Curlew Cottage was exactly what we were hoping for. The location is stunning and being able to set off for walks without needing the car made it so relaxing. We loved the stunning views and the spacious living area was perfect for our group of 3 family couples. It felt like a real country weekend away. We loved the open plan design and the upstairs walkway to the bedrooms. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and we felt very much at home. The underfloor heating made the cottage very cosy and welcoming (especially as the weather was extreme at times). We took some games but didn't need to as the cottage has a good selection. We loved it and would happily do it again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay, especially at Storm Katie decided to join us all! Best wishes, Madeleine
