    “We had a lovely break.”

    The bed was comfortable as were the sofas. Often when we rent they are poor quality. There were lots of lovely walks nearby and our dog felt welcomed.

    The bed was comfortable as were the sofas. Often when we rent they are poor quality. There were lots of lovely walks nearby and our dog felt welcomed. Lambs, alpacas and a couple of reahs in the field nearby. Really restful. The owner and her partner were lovely. The only downside is the very small kitchen. But an excuse to eat out.

The property

Christian Malford 2.5 miles.

Nestled in the peaceful hamlet of Draycot Cerne on the vast landscapes of the owners farm, The Byre is a picture-perfect cottage providing an idyllic backdrop for you and your four-legged friends on your next adventure in Wiltshire.

Allow yourself to relax and unwind in the warm and restful sitting room, home to a plush corner sofa and a striking woodburning stove, as well as large wall-to-floor windows that look out to the rolling countryside and exude natural light.

Rustle up a tasty afternoon snack in the lovely compact kitchen, complete with all the essential amenities such as a spacious fridge/freezer, a sleek oven and hob, and a washing machine, necessary for a smooth-sailing self-catering stay.

Venture across to the charming family bedroom and discover both a double and a handy truckle bed, ideal for those travelling with children.

The bedroom is served by a well-designed shower room that rests down the hall, perfect for delighting in a refreshing morning wash before setting about your day.

Outside, a pretty picnic table and wonderful barbecue offer ample opportunity for delicious dinner alfresco, where you can embrace your scenic surroundings as you admire views of the luscious open fields.

Be sure to enjoy a tour of the farm from the owners themselves, meeting the friendly exotic animals that call this their home.

Head to the nearby town of Chippenham for a tour of the 18th century townhouse of Chippenham Museum, or take a relaxing stroll through the manicured lawns of John Coles Park.

Grab your wellies or dust of your bikes as you embark on an exciting expedition through the National Trust owned Sutton Lane Meadows, or venture over to Calne for a hike along the Horsebrook Nature Trail.

Be blown away by the grand architecture of Corsham Court or spend the day at the Elizabethan manor of Longleat, making sure to go on the exciting Longleat Safari tour to see a fantastic range of animals including lions, monkeys, giraffes and many more, offering fun for the whole family.

Within easy touring distance is the breath-taking city of Bath, filled with incredible limestone buildings and mesmerising historical landmarks such as The Roman Baths and Pulteney Bridge, well worth the trip!

With so much waiting to be explored, The Byre is the ultimate choice for any romantic getaway to the Wiltshire countryside.
