This comfortably furnished and very well-appointed Hindon cottage provides a charming holiday home for families or friends wishing to explore this lovely area. The cosy interior of this Wiltshire holiday cottage boasts a well-equipped kitchen featuring granite worktops, and there’s a choice of creating delicious meals using the lovely Rayburn or the conventional electric oven, whilst you relax in the cosy sitting room with its woodburning stove, or on warmer days enjoy sitting in the sunny conservatory. The main bedroom at your Hindon holiday home has a super king-size double bed with a superb en-suite featuring a Jacuzzi bath and separate shower. Outside this Wiltshire cottage you can choose between two seating areas, there’s a small pretty enclosed lawned garden and patio to the front, whilst at the rear is a walled courtyard, both of which offer a great place to socialise after busy days out.

Guest Reviews


    • “Excellent accommodation that was easy to live in, the bathroom facilities were all very good as were the bedrooms. It was also a very quiet location so everyone slept very well.”

    Mr Whiting, Solihull, June 2015

    • “The cottage itself was fantastic, set within an idyllic village setting, with lots of walks directly from the front door. This meant there was no need to drive anywhere to walk the dog. We will be booking this cottage again.”

    Mr Morini, Yeovil, February 2015

    • “We have stayed in many cottages and this was by far the best we have ever stayed in. A credit to the owner.”

    Mrs Devonport, Wigan, December 2014

    • “Location was very near Stourhead which was the aim of the holiday”

    Mr Edmonds, Seaford, October 2014

    • “Loved staying at Courtyard Cottage. The bed in the master bedroom was huge, so plenty of room and very comfortable. Slept like a log there, with no noise from traffic and no street lights. Listened to the hooting of owls at night and there aren't many places in the UK you can do that.”

    Ms Elliott, Nottingham, September 2014

    • “This property is like a home-from-home. It is cosy and has all the requirements for the safe keeping of our dogs. It has a warm feeling and is very comfortable. It is tastefully decorated and is very convenient for local amenities. This is our second visit and we intend to return again soon. Many thanks!”

    Mr Rowell, Beaminster, July 2014

    • “This is the nicest holiday cottage we have stayed in, it was spacious and homely with added luxuries such as the Jacuzzi bath. We took 4 children with us including 18 month old twins and the owners ensured we had everything we needed, the toys were great! Loved Hindon, such a pretty village with a playground opposite the cottage. Will definitely be returning, so much to do in Wiltshire too.”

    Mr Logan, Knutsford, June 2014

    • “Lovely homely cottage”

    Mr Phillips, Wallingford, June 2014

About the location


Shaftesbury 6 miles.

Set amidst an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the peaceful village of Hindon quietly sits on the border of Wiltshire and Dorset, just 6 miles from the historic town of Shaftesbury. Boasting quaint cottages and a great local shop, this charming village is home to two former coaching inns renowned for their superb menus and great selection of real ales. The surrounding countryside and gently undulating chalk downlands provide wonderful walking opportunities and with many delightful places to visit such as picturesque Stourhead, historic Shaftesbury, Longleat, ancient Stonehenge or the magnificent cathedral at Salisbury, this great location has plenty to offer.
