    • “A peaceful, idyllic outstanding cottage and surrounding area”

    • “The owner was very helpful, left us a welcome pack (tea/coffee and biscuits). All comforts catered for. We loved the cottage, as did our cat! We spent two weeks and didn't want to leave. The location, next to a main road, but traffic noise not intrusive. Beautiful area, near Malmesbury. Visited the abbey and the abbey gardens, all worth a visit. Cotswold Water Park also outstanding although directions to the Nature Reserves could have been more prominent. Would recommend to those who like great countryside, peace and quiet, and are happy to be a few miles from the shops!”

    • “Perfect for countryside lovers, dogs adored it!”

    • “The cottage is fully equipped and very cozy. Although the property lies just off the road, it is very quiet at night and all you can hear in the morning is birdsong. There are fields just behind the building where you can take your dog for a stroll in the morning (we were even provided with wellies for the purpose!). Landlady lives next door and was very helpful and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.”

    • “The accommodation was excellent and the directions were first class, the area was just what was required, quiet! The only fault was that the accommodation was kitted out with Ikea and was not the most comfortable furniture we have sat or slept in.”

About the location


Malmesbury 4 miles.

The attractive North Wiltshire village of Charlton is found within glorious countryside only 4 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.
