  • "We had a lovely week at Breach cottage."

    We had two adults and two children (aged 10 and 5). The weather was lovely so being able to open the patio doors out onto the courtyard meant we could hear the birdsong from the living room. The girls loved playing in the garden. The kitchen had all the amenities we needed and had a good variety of dishes and crockery. We enjoyed some meals outside on the patio with the evening sunshine. Phil and Claire were very welcoming as was Toby their dog. Toby was often kept on a long lead outside which gave the girls an opportunity to say hello to him when we came and went from the cottage - he was very friendly and we enjoyed seeing him. Phil and Claire were on hand to give us suggestions for places to go for a walk and information about the area but otherwise we were left to our own devices. Urchfont is a beautiful picturesque village. Thank you for a lovely comfortable week.

  • "Breach Cottage was amazing!"

    Small but perfectly formed, it is a 2 bedroom accommodation (one very comfy double, one twin), with lovely lounge (two very comfy double sofas), kitchen/diner and bathroom all on one level, very clean and with everything you need. There was also a very pleasant outside area with chairs and table. It is completely separate from the owner’s cottage, with its own entrance and off road parking space. Claire, the owner, is on hand to help if necessary, and she and Sykes Cottages were quick in replying to our request. Set in a beautiful village, it is close to small shop, post office and pub (sadly not open due to covid). There are several lovely walks nearby. We had a great day in Winchester, about an hour away, where, along with visiting its beautiful cathedral, there are lots of things to do and see. Highly recommended and would stay again! Thanks Claire!

  • "The cottage is based in a beautiful setting and is a good base for visiting surrounding areas."

    It was lovely and clean upon arrival but is in need of some maintenance there is a strong damp smell when you open the kitchen cupboards and it makes the things inside smell of it as well. It’s quite an old building and was warm enough in Aug, but I wouldn’t like to stay in there in the winter months. The owners who live next door are very friendly, but not in your face interfering.

    Breach Cottage left us disappointed are a welcome pack of only one item a pint of milk. There was no coffee and only six tea bags which meant on our arrival a dash to the shops in Devices which also includes buying toilet rolls as only one supplier . We were not impressed .

    Cottage is comfy warm and cosy and we loved coming back to it each day. Urchfont is a very friendly village with great walks and a well stocked little shop. Quiz on the last sunday of the month in the local pub the lamb was excellent. We visited Avebury Devizes Salisbury Marlborough and Hungerford. Didnt bother with Stonehenge as it costs 20 pounds each. Avebury stone circles just as good and free. Hungerford great for antiques. Ate at the Royal oak and the Millstream both excellent

  • "An excellent holiday venue."

    What I particularly appreciated was that the owners lived next door in Breach House. We were met on arrival and there was frequent contact during the week we were there. Not because we needed anything extra but mainly a chance to know the couple, who were very pleasant and like us, retired. Just to say we believe this is the third time Sykes have found us accommodation and every time we have been well satisfied. We hope to be able to use you again

    This cottage gave us everything we needed for our weeks family holiday and we will certainly be returning again.

The cottage is situated in the most beautiful little village which my children loved walking to feed the ducks at the nearby pond. Would highly recommend to everyone x

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The cottage feels larger than was apparent from the photos, and perfectly equipped for a family of four and a dog. When we arrived there was milk in the fridge and shortbread biscuits on the table. The enclosed gardens were large and lush. Urchfont is a lovely village which has rightly won best-kept village competitions recently. Just over the road from the cottage is the local primary school with a large playground, and walking paths alongside fields and leading into ancient woodlands with self-guided paths to views overlooking a white horse carved into the hillside. We were also extremely well situated for days out in Marlborough, Devizes and Salisbury. The kids were asking us to stay longer, and family who saw my photos online were asking for details of the cottage - I am certain we will come back again.

The property

A charming, single-storey timber-clad barn conversion, set within the grounds of the owner’s cottage, in the picturesque village of Urchfont in Wiltshire.

Set just five miles from Devizes, this pretty, well-equipped cottage offers guests a delightful village holiday base, which would suit either a couple or a small family.

All positioned on the ground floor, inside this pretty cottage there is a beamed kitchen with dining area, equipped with everything you might need for preparing tasty treats, as well as a cosy sitting room where, on cooler days, you can snuggle up on the comfy sofa and enjoy a good film.

There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a single, pull-out stacker bed, and a family bathroom.

From the sitting room, French doors open out onto a private patio, a lovely place to unwind after your interesting day out.

Take a short stroll down to the enchanting village pond, where ducks clamour to be fed!

Buy some groceries in the friendly community store or enjoy refreshments at the popular village pub, which serves real ales and locally-sourced meals.

Nearby, you can explore one of the well-marked byways which weave their way across the unspoilt countryside.

Alternatively, enjoy the beautifully-restored Kennet and Avon Canal as it winds its way through the Vale of Pewsey towards Devizes, before it descends the magnificent Caen Hill flight of locks, one of the highest in the country.

Within an easy drive from Urchfont, you can take in a visit to historic Stonehenge, the splendid cities of Bath and Salisbury, Bowood House and Lacock Abbey, as well as Longleat House and Safari Park.

This charming cottage offers visitors a super Wiltshire village bolthole, a great starting point from which to discover all that this lovely area has to offer.

About the location


Devizes 5 miles.

The picturesque Wiltshire village of Urchfont lies at the south west end of the Vale of Pewsey, north of the Salisbury Plain, five miles from the historic market town of Devizes. Urchfont is dominated by an attractive pond, where you will be greeted by all kinds of water fowl, plus a lively and well-stocked community run shop and a pub serving real ales and good food can also be found in the village, and an annual scarecrow festival, with up to 50 scarecrows on display is held in early May. The local area is rich in ancient history with the stone circles of Stonehenge and Avebury both an easy drive, or take a trip through the nearby Vale of Pewsey, dotted with pretty villages and boasting two white horses carved into the chalk down land. The market town of Devizes is famous for its brewery and the Kennet and Avon canal. A boat trip along the canal is a must, from where you can marvel at the Caen Hill staircase of locks, one of the largest in the country. The area has so much to offer visitors at any time of the year.
