    “The house was so well appointed in extensive wooded grounds where we could explore and sit.”

    It was very well equipped (for example a Nespresso machine, lovely cutlery, tableware and glasses, lovely soaps and toiletries etc. We were provided with a packed welcome hamper, flowers, and the ice maker ready to go; hot tub and BBQ so that we could enjoy a luxurious time with our family. The house was warm, light, spacious and had every comfort. ...

    It was very well equipped (for example a Nespresso machine, lovely cutlery, tableware and glasses, lovely soaps and toiletries etc. We were provided with a packed welcome hamper, flowers, and the ice maker ready to go; hot tub and BBQ so that we could enjoy a luxurious time with our family. The house was warm, light, spacious and had every comfort. There were indoor and outdoor games, digital speakers, spare wellies for the grounds, good Wifi, a drinks chiller. Very thoughtful touches throughout the house. The area had plenty of interesting places to visit - Caen Locks/Avebury/the canal side and local walks.

The property

Nestled within the luscious Wiltshire countryside, boasting characterful features and set within 5.5 acres of grounds is this beautiful former mill, Valley House.

Offering ten guests a dreamlike location to spend quality time together, Valley House has been thoughtfully decorated to echo the history of the property, with further evidence of its milling past in the river running through the grounds with pretty bridges and ponds to explore.

Head through the front door and step into the large entrance hall, immediately admiring the rustic beams before travelling across the parquet flooring in the sitting room to find a woodburning stove in the heart of the fireplace, surrounded by sofas and armchairs with a large bay window overlooking the fabulous gardens.

Relax in here before being called to take a seat in the grand dining room where a long vintage table and chairs await you, enjoy dinner parties in this traditional setting and toast to your wonderful Wiltshire holiday.

A pretty conservatory rests at the end of the dining room, perfect for enjoying the scenery while getting stuck in a book, while the study on the ground floor is ideal for those who need to bring the office with them on holiday.

Come together in the mornings in the large kitchen/diner, home to a breakfast bar and breakfast table, you can cook up something for with the excellent appliances including an impressive Rangemaster range set within a slate tiled alcove.

The utility room houses the laundry facilities, while a cloakroom also rests on this floor.

Travel up to the first floor to find the elegant bedrooms, beginning with the master suite, home to a roomy king-size bed, fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom, and a beautiful four-poster super-king-size room enjoying dual-aspect windows overlooking the grounds.

Discover a super-king-size with an en-suite shower and basin through a pretty archway, with a cloakroom next door, a bathroom and a bunk room completing the floor.

A steep set of stairs brings you to the second floor where a lovely single room rests within the timber eaves, with a trundle bed allowing the room to be made into a twin or a double on request, with a gaming room opposite to entertain the children.

Relax within the beautiful garden, whether sitting out at the outdoor furniture with a refreshing drink, taking a dip in the bubbling hot tub on a warm evening, watching the children and dog play on the lawns, or making use of the lovely summerhouse, there's a tranquil spot for everyone with the soft sounds of the stream running beneath the pretty bridge to add the perfect soundtrack.

The town centre of Devizes is just a mile down the road with over 500 listed buildings scattered across the streets, you can visit the weekly market run by the local residents for local produce, or browse the independent shops for a holiday souvenir, as well as stopping in at one of the cafés or pubs for delicious food and drink.

Take a scenic walk along the Kennet & Avon Canal which passes through the town, heading west towards the amazing Caen Hill Locks or the Devizes Flight as it's also known, enjoying some wildlife spotting along the way.

There's plenty to do in the area with several fisheries nearby for peaceful afternoons with just you and your rod, as well as excellent golf courses and gardens and parks to explore.

Venture into the beautiful North Wessex Downs AONB and visit as many historic landmarks as you can on your walks with ancient stone circles, hill forts and ruins to be found, with a unique sight to behold at Silbury Hill, the largest artificial mound in Europe, comparing in height and volume to the Egyptian pyramids and probably completed in around 2400 BC!

Enjoy a day down at Longleat Safari Park being less than an hour's drive away, you can expect to see lions, tigers, monkeys and giraffes among many more, with a tour of the large Longleat manor revealing the history of this grand building, perfect for all the family.

The historic city of Bath with its thermal spas, Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey, makes a wonderful day out, as well as Salisbury where the impressive Salisbury Cathedral dominates the skyline, while the ancient and mysterious Stonehenge is within easy reach too.

Make incredible memories with your loved ones in the Wiltshire countryside at Valley House.
