Perfect cottage for us. Bigger than you might imagine from the on line photos. The garden with look very pretty once the spring comes.

The cottage was beautifully appointed - a conversion of the highest quality. We were VERY happy there! It was a most wonderful New Year. There was even a super Christmas tree, and a generous hamper. The best possible way to spend New Year. We would love to return.!SELECTED! !ENDOFSELECTED!11 out of 10!

Really comfortable and warm. Quiet and peaceful location. Well insulated from traffic noise (not that the road outside was busy - it wasn't). The owners were extremely helpful in every respect.

An excellent (and very new) conversion of an old property into a small and beautiful holiday cottage. Well equipped, very comfortable and cosy, with some thoughful touches - fresh flowers, cream tea with local produce. Conveniently located for touring the Dorset/Wiltshire countryside, and for visiting the National Trust's Stourhead.

Reviewed by Linda, 10th June 2017

This little cottage was a perfect home from home for us. Tastefully and comfortably furnished, everything we could have needed,and much that was unexpected, was provided. Exploration of the village itself was rewarding - The White Lion does good food in a welcoming atmosphere , history lovers should check out Mill Lane, its not what you might thinkRead more! Hide
