What Our Guests Say

Here's some 2018 comments from our guests from a booking website that  we are on:

The cottage was pristinely clean and fresh and stylishly kitted out

Our stay was a great respite from the demands of city life.

We walked along the canal and explored the forest at Savernake, and in the evening checked out the charming local pubs.

If you are wanting the visit Wiltshire, this is definitely the place to stay.

The accommodation has been finished to a high standard. It's well laid out and the village is lovely. Pip was a fantastic host and made sure we had the perfect stay.

Beautiful, comfortable accommodation in a quiet rural setting with quick access to so many great sites - Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, Winchester Cathedral, Bath and the Cotswolds

The accommodation had everything we needed - fantastic living space, we loved the en-suit bedrooms

It is a real pleasure when the reality surpasses the online presentation.

The bedrooms are a great size and each has its own bathroom which was wonderful.

Excellent communication, spotlessly clean and check in was hassle free. Would not hesitate to recommend for a long weekend in the countryside.

The Stables is a wonderful retreat in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside, with a great variety of fabulous walks on your doorstep - canal towpaths, woods, open fields, little villages.

Excellent value, lovely accommodation! Highly recommended.

What a lovely, comfortable and spacious cottage. An ideal location for exploring the 8 White Horses. It's great to be back in the Wiltshire countryside, a well kept secret. Thank you.

The Stables was a wonderful cottage from which to explore Wiltshire. We visited Salisbury, Avebury, Stonehenge, Devizes and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we appreciated the extra touches - very thoughtful. Loved the quietness!

Our annual girls get together. Fifth vsist to the Barn and another fabulous week of indulgent relaxation. We discovered a few new places this year but also visited our old favourites. Savernake Forest took our breath away. The Barn, as always, provided a cosy, comfortable and tranquil base for us where we chatter and drink lots of tea! J,B,& A November 2015

The Stables: comfortable and well laid out - great! Walking: Savernake Forest is lovley especially now the leaves are turning. Lots and lots of ancient history - had some great walking at Avebury and Stonehenge. Ate at the Swan - very good food and enjoyed the selection of local beers. The walk there along the lane isn't very far and the lane is quiet. J,I,E & P October 2015

Perfect - what we've come to expect!

What a great stay in this beautiful place. We enjoyed the luxury and space and the warm welcome. We visited Stourhead, Stonehenge, Bath, Longleat, Salisbury and Lacock. It was nice to come back to the quiet Stables in the evening and to be greeted by a chicken every morning!
