    • “Beautiful house with superb garden, great for kids. Wonderful rural setting. The house is lovely and extremely well equipped. Thoughtful welcome hamper on arrival and very helpful housekeeper. Layout of house was perfect for two families holidaying together. Is, without a doubt, the best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in!”

    • “Lovely old cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Just right for a reunion of 4 60+ old school friends and their husbands! Well appointed and decorated and plenty big enough for 8 of us. Althouh it was only October when we were there we enjoyed sitting round the blazing woodburning stove in the evenings. Rather in the middle of nowhere but we all had cars so not a problem (location chosen because we came from all corners of South/South West England and it was convenient for us all). Enjoyed trips to Tetbury and to Westonbirt while there. Only gripe- we did struggle to get the key in and out of the key safe - both when we arrived and when we left. Also, we didn't know what a Jack and Jill bathroom was (ensuite bathroom to two bedrooms). We do now and found this arrangement unsuitable for two unrelated adult couples.”

    • “The Cottage is very comfortable and in a great location. The fully secure garden made for trouble free doggie days.”

    Mrs Procter, Horsham, October 2015

    • “This was a great place for our family to meet up. It was spacious, comfortable and warm with a good sized garden and lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Plenty of places to visit locally meant we didn't need to spend much time travelling. The housekeeper and owner were very friendly and helpful.”

    Mrs Jones, Wigan, April 2015

    • “I can wholeheartedly recommend Park Farm Cottage as place for up to eight people to enjoy a quiet and peaceful break. We were a mixed party of family and friends and found this very well-equipped and comfortable cottage to be the perfect base.”

    Mr Wex, Northampton, March 2015

    • “Very good, the best one we have stayed in.”

    Mr Clark, Hereford, December 2014

    • “A personal phone call from the owner prior to the visit was much appreciated. The housekeeper was very helpful and available too. We found the large enclosed garden ideal for our three young grandchildren and our dog.”

    Mr Atwood, Oxford, October 2014

    • “Lots of space in house and garden. Very well equipped with toys and books for children and adults - much appreciated, thanks!”

    Ms Hagger-holt, Rickmansworth, August 2014

    • “Lovely cottage in a great location, the perfect size cottage for family & friends and our little dog loved the garden! Would love to go back & would recommend.”

    Mrs Everson, Telford, April 2014

    • “The cottage is in a lovely area with stunning views. What a treat to open the curtains to that view in the mornings! The cottage is very comfortable, there were 7 of us and it was well equipped for all of us. It was almost warm enough to eat in the garden which would have been lovely - I think we will just have to go back in the summer!”

    Mrs Barry, Plymouth, March 2014

    • “The warm comfort and homeliness of the cottage at this time of the year, given the cold and grey weather”

About the location


Malmesbury 3 miles.

The scattered North Wiltshire village of Garsdon is set amongst beautiful countryside only 3 miles from the historic town of Malmesbury, well known for its ancient ruined 12th century Benedictine Abbey. On the southern edge of the Cotswold Hills, the area provides superb walks, as well as numerous interesting places to visit including Westonbirt Arboretum, with its extensive collection of trees and shrubs. Also a short drive away are all the attractions at the Cotswold Water Park, or how about a visit to picturesque Castle Combe, or the quaint NT village of Lacock, used as the setting for the Cranford TV series. The superb Roman city of Bath is also easily accessible. This is a great rural location from which to explore this fascinating area.
