The property

A charming semi-detached character cottage, a short walk from the village pub in the little village of Nunton, just 4 miles south of the beautiful cathedral city of Salisbury.

The cottage offers holiday accommodation of a good standard, including lovely high vaulted beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls, and a warming woodburner, as well as a sunny glazed garden room overlooking the enclosed lawned garden.

Situated in the valley of the chalk stream River Ebble, there are lovely rural walks close by.

However, no visit to this super area would be complete without a trip to nearby Salisbury, with its stunning cathedral, magnificent Cathedral Close, twice-weekly market and array of cosmopolitan shops and restaurants.

Take a trip to ancient Stonehenge, Wilton House or the glorious New Forest National Park, all easily accessible.

A great Nunton cottage for a varied and interesting holiday, at any time of the year.

    • “Fabulous cottage in a great location.”

    • “The cottage was clean, well kept and the welcome pack with a bottle of wine in the fridge was a very nice touch! Perfect for families and our dogs had the fully enclosed garden in which to run and play with our children. We had a fabulous time here, with Salisbury, Stonehenge and the New Forest all close by. I would fully recommend anybody to stay at Ostlers and thank the owners for their hospitality.”

    • “Easy to find - Keysafe makes things as easy as can possibly be! Some nice touches such as ketchup, wine and fruit !! Log burner was great - central heating would easy have been enough but we just had to have the fire on! Good location with with two welcoming pubs but well placed for of Salisbury and shops/ New Forest/Isle of Wight/ Stonehenge etc. We traveled as two couples and had loads of space! An excellent stay in a fabulous cottage!”

    • “Efficient handover of keys, thoughtful stock up of essentials including bottle of wine. The property was just like home from home and the conservatory and enclosed garden meant it was safe and had play area for children even when wet. We could not use the log burner as there was not fire guard, but the central heating was all we could wish for. Pleasant village with two welcoming pubs but within easy reach of Salisbury and shops. The whole experience was positive and I cant wait to go again!”

    • “Very relaxing and enjoyable”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage in Nunton really made our family holiday one of the best we've ever had. The cottage was clean and spacious and everything in the cottage and garden made our holiday very relaxing. The location of the cottage in this quite village which is a short drive away from the New Forest with its ponies walking on the road was something very special to us. Salisbury was everything we expected of that wonderful city and it has a lovely Cathedral. Old Sarum which was the original Salisbury is a couple of miles to the north and it is well worth a visit. The two local pubs which has very good food and most shops in the area were all dog friendly and we even took our dog into the Beauleiu Motor Museum which was very enjoyable. We spend two lovely weeks in the Ostlers Cottage and we've recommended this cottage to all our friends. Nunton village is very rural, but close to Salisbury with its shops and supermarkets and there is many more excellent places to visit for an excellent family holiday.”

    • “The cottage was cosy but with plenty of room. It felt like a proper home.”

    Mr Pleasance, Witham, June 2014

    • “Loved Ostlers. The cottage had everything we could have wished for, a great deal of thought had gone into equipping it. There are some wonderful walks nearby which we and the dog enjoyed, and there are numerous interesting places to visit. Although we mostly cooked for ourselves The Radnor Arms pub is only a stone's throw along the road. We would definitely return to Ostlers.”

    • “The cottage was very homely. There was a good variety of cooking equipment making meal preparation easy.”
