    • “This cottage was lovely exactly what I was looking for. Stayed with my 2 dogs on my own, the owner was kind and helpful but, also left me to it wasn't nosey etc. I felt I was pretty central to most sites with Devizes 10min drive away for amenities. It was clean and I arrived to fresh milk and home made cookies waiting for me very nice touch. I did visit in Dec so it was a little chilly but, really enjoyed my stay. If I were to visit Wiltshire again I would defo stay here. I have advised others to visit. Wiltshire was also a lovely place and kept me very busy. Thumbs up 5* all round. :)”

    • “Very charming, cosy, beautifully furnished, well-equipped cottage in a pretty village. Perfect for someone who does not have a car and wants to get away from everything and just relax. Lovely countryside walks/runs- the walk into Devizes is particularly nice and the owners were very helpful with suggestions. Highly recommended.”

Devizes is an interesting market town with ample parking, we enjoyed various walks and frequented a range of the cafés in the town. The canal offered lovely walks to pubs in both directions for lunch. We had a really good week's holiday.”

About the location


Devizes 5 miles.

The picturesque Wiltshire village of Urchfont lies at the south west end of the Vale of Pewsey, north of the Salisbury Plain, five miles from the historic market town of Devizes. Urchfont is dominated by an attractive pond, where you will be greeted by all kinds of water fowl, plus a lively and well-stocked community run shop and a pub serving real ales and good food can also be found in the village, and an annual scarecrow festival, with up to 50 scarecrows on display is held in early May. The local area is rich in ancient history with the stone circles of Stonehenge and Avebury both an easy drive, or take a trip through the nearby Vale of Pewsey, dotted with pretty villages and boasting two white horses carved into the chalk down land. The market town of Devizes is famous for its brewery and the Kennet and Avon canal. A boat trip along the canal is a must, from where you can marvel at the Caen Hill staircase of locks, one of the largest in the country. The area has so much to offer visitors at any time of the year.
