    • “We had a delightful break in the cottage. Hindon is a very pretty village and the surrounding countryside has so much to offer. The only downside was that we only booked a short break! Wished it had been longer.”

    • “Good location for touring and comfortable”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Just the right place for seeing various parts of Wiltshire. This is a comfortable cottage with everything you need. It is situated in a quiet village with two pubs and a small shop selling basic needs. Longleat House and Safari Park are nearby. The only improvement possibly would be a dining table and chairs for 3 in the kitchen, and in the bathroom, somewhere to hang the showerhead over the bath whilst showering! But this didn't spoil our holiday at all and we would definitely go there again. It was clean and warm and that is important.”

    • “We enjoyed our week down in Hindon despite the very cold weather. The cottage soon warmed up to snugness with the very efficient log burner.The kitchen contained everything we needed and the bed was comfortable. The only thing we felt was needed was a telephone landline as mobile communication was hopeless.”
