The Cottage - Well more a big house. Was great. So spacious and had everything we needed. The location was good too and very central for visiting all the surrounding villages including Bath and Lacock. Everything was provided and we cooked most nights and every morning. Would highly recommend.

Poplar Farm is a lovely place to stay for your holiday. We were lucky and had great weather so spent many an afternoon sitting in the courtyard, enjoying a drink and a BBQ. We also enjoyed the kitchen area as there is a table for 6 and we spent many evenings in there eating and playing games.

This is a stunning house with massive and immaculate bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas. An enormous secure gravel covered courtyard at the back great for bikes and cars. The friendly owner met us and showed us round. Country walks across fields and walks to local pubs and reataurants easy. Bus stop 100 yards away goes to Bath or Devizes every haRead morelf an hour. Only (minor) gripes are the locked snooker room and rather small fridge for the size of house. Hide

Lovely week at this fantastic, spacious house. Advert pictures do not do house or grounds justice, much bigger than we thought. Very well equipped kitchen, enormous bedrooms & bathrooms. House spotlessly clean. Owner very helpful and informative. Large walled safe courtyard for cars and for children to play in. Location great for Longleat (30min), Read moreCotswold Water Park (40min), Bath (20min), and Seend Cleeve - Kennet and Avon Canal and locks (10min). Some great local pubs (within 10min). Hide

Superb, spacious and equipped / decorated throughout to a high standard. Very private, owner lives adjacent but you wouldnt know at all. 3 lounge areas great, kitchen large and new. Large bedrooms and en-suites equally large with lovely fittings. Great Location to explore Wiltshire, Somerset and cotswolds.

Excellent holiday at Poplar farm. Great accommodation, four living spaces, brand new kitchen, four spacious bedrooms, three with ensuite and one large bathroom with jacuzzi bath. We also loved the feature of the large balcony, over looking the courtyard. We were the first occuRead morepants to visit the accommodation, so when we arrived there was no microwave, we informed the owner and he provided us with one the following day. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He was a pleasure to meet. We had three generations staying here and we all had a great time. Very hospitable owner, helpful, friendly and efficient. This is a beautiful building which is in a great location for visiting Bath, Stonehenge, Lacock, Chippenham and many other lovely towns and villages. Would definitely recommend Poplars farm.
