  • “We enjoyed our stay at Tilly's Cottage.”

    Mike has restored the cottage to a very high standard. ...

    Mike has restored the cottage to a very high standard. Inside was very well equipped. There isn't a washing machine, but that was not a problem for us. The main thing for us is a comfortable bed, very comfortable! The garden and patio area was inaccessible to me as it's quite steep. Being disabled, it was a no go area. for me. This didn't impact on our holiday, but I felt it should be pointed out in the details. Summing up. Tilly's cottage was, Quiet, clean, comfortable and cosy. ÞheWe would certainly stay there again

The property

Set on a quiet country lane in the village of Edington is Tilly's Cottage, a sweet little detached cottage, exuding warmth and cosiness the moment you step through the door.

The cottage dates back to the 19th century and has been lovingly restored to provide a lovely holiday home, suitable for a small family or friends looking to enjoy the Wiltshire countryside, or couples looking for a romantic retreat.

Come into this charming property and enter the delightful sitting room, where two grey plush sofas are arranged around the red-brick fireplace that holds the woodburning stove, throw some kindling on the fire on a cold night and nestle into your home-from-home.

A Smart TV grants you access to all your favourite channels and streaming services, beneath the wooden ceiling beams scattered with modern spotlights, it’s a great mix of old and new.

Step onto the excellently preserved original stone tiles in the kitchen/diner, and find the fitted kitchen made up of muted grey units with a dark sleek worktop, while a wooden table is tucked in one corner creating a lovely snug spot to gather around for an evening meal.

Upstairs when it’s time to turn in for the night, find two beautifully-presented king-size bedrooms, each boasting coordinated bed linen and curtains, offering a wonderful sleeping spot.

One of the rooms also features a decorative red-brick fireplace and is also able to be made into a twin room on request thanks to zip/link capabilities, turning it from a 5-foot king-size into two singles, allowing the property to be suitable for different party setups.

Finally completing the property is the bathroom, where a grey tiled shower over bath sits within it, with a hand-held shower attachment as well, creating a calming space to enjoy while soaking in the tub.

An excellent feature of this already charming property is the wonderful garden, accessed via a communal patio area leading to a flight of stone steps, it has been landscaped to create an elevated decking space, perfect for sitting out on a sunny day to take in the views over the neighbouring treetops out to the countryside beyond.

Stroll down to the village farm shop and pick up some local produce to use in a recipe for later, or simply head into the award-winning local for some hearty dishes and a pint.

Not only can you enjoy the walks and scenery of the local area of the Salisbury Plains, but you can find three AONBs surrounding you, the southern Cotswolds to the north-west, the North Wessex Downs to the north-east and Cranborne Chase below, so you won't be stuck to find any walking routes.

There are many opportunities for day's out.

Stonehenge, Longleat, Stourhead Gardens and the city of Bath all within easy reach.

A visit to Tilly's Cottage wouldn't be complete without visiting the famous Westbury White Horse, right on your doorstep a perfect ending to your break in this delightful cottage in the Wiltshire countryside.

About the location


Westbury 3.9 miles; Trowbridge 6.1 miles; Bath 17.6 miles

Lying beneath the north slope of Salisbury Plain is the village of Edington.

Previously known as Tinhead in its eastern region, the village holds a wealth of history and traditional enchantment, making it a marvellous base for your exploration of Wiltshire.

Home to a pub/inn and a neighbouring farmhouse offering all of the essentials, you can find yourself surrounded by countryside views no matter where you are in the area.

You will also find a village hall, and to the east is the village of Erlestoke, where you can indulge in a relaxing game of golf when you're not venturing out in the nearby excitement.

Wiltshire's county town, Trowbridge, is also within easy reach from Edington; here you will be greeted by rich history, glorious walks, independent shops and highstreet outlets, and many eateries, making it a great day trip for all tastes.

Nestled in between both the North Wessex Downs AONB and the Cranborne Chase AONB, there's a plethora of walking routes available from every corner of the village.

Surround yourself with luscious landscapes, rambling wonders and nature like no other.

Venture into Bath with its wide array of historic landmarks accompanied by modern day excitement, you'll find something here to suit everyone..
