Previous visitors' comments about 4 Victoria Cottages:
We were very happy with the location and cosiness of the cottage. It was also well equipped compared to places we have been before.
Mr O'Brien, Warrington, January 2012
We loved the wood burning stove and with the cold evenings it was lit every night. We felt totally at home and able to switch off. Lots of great walks and plenty to see in the area, including nearby Wardour Castle. Hindon is a stunning, unspoilt village with 2 excellent pubs and a lovely community run shop. A lovely break away from everything in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside.
Miss Summers, Burgess Hill, January 2012
The cottage was centrally placed making it easy to visit relatives over the Christmas period. There is a very friendly and active local community. We found the combination of traditional and modern features in the cottage very pleasant and especially enjoyed having the cosy fire.
Ms Lovegrove, Plymouth, December 2011
We had a great holiday. the cottage was superb. The area was lovely. Directions were easy to follow . The village was everything that we wanted and the information about places to see from the cottage was certainly more than enough. Thank you and the owner for a great time.
