The property was great for our purpose. It was immaculately clean, warm and cosy and quiet. There are many attractions in the area, whether you choose to go North South East or West and plenty of choices for eating out within easy reach. We particularly enjoyed visits to Westonbirt and Bowood Gardens and Rhododendron walk.

Mr Gaskell, Neston, May 2013

The secluded area, the garden, and easy access to various places to visit.

Mrs Tyrrell, Totnes, September 2012

This was our second visit to Cow Byre Cottage. There are nice places to visit nearby, Abbey House Garden is a must and Bath is not too far away.

Mrs Bates, Darlington, June 2012

The cottage was comfortable and warm with off road parking. It was very convenient to Malmesbury and other locations.
