  • "What a beautiful property set in the most picturesque setting!"

    We cannot wait to come back! The house itself is beautiful. It is well equipped and so very cosy and warm when it is cold outside. Thank you Annie for decorating it for Christmas and for the best and most generous welcome hamper we have ever seen from a Sykes Cottage until now. It was also lovely to have met you during our stay. We had the most wonderful time and so did our dog. She loved all the smells and the massive garden to run around in. She was quite intrigued by the pheasants that seemed to visit every day and would sit and watch them as opposed to wanting to chase them. The setting of the house is beautiful. Being in an AONB it is surrounded by nature, woods right behind and fields.to the front with great walks right from the door. With no artificial light in the vicinity the sky is lit up with stars at night. It is in a great location, just an hour from Salisbury and Stonehenge and down the road from Avebury. There is just one thing that could be added to make the property perfect in our eyes. There is no fencing in the front garden by the road. I believe there used to be a little picket fence (like what runs around the side where you park your car) but that has been taken out and replaced with very young hedging plants which will take years before they provide any kind of a deterrent for a dog to make a run for it. It is a shame as we felt we had to watch our dog every minute she was out in the front because of the road which isn't a busy one but still is what it is. Having said that, I would still come back.

    It is a very nice and comfortable cottage to stay in. Beautiful surroundings. Only point of interest perhaps is the boiler heating up at night. It might be a little noisy.

  • "Returning to Chasewoods Cottage was wonderful - we love the peace and quiet and being surrounded by beautiful countryside."

    Only a few miles from the lovely Market Town of Marlborough was great and visits to Avebury and the Cotswolds were so memorable. We hope to return again next year.

    The place is amazing and provides peace and tranquillity. If there were a downstairs toilet facility, it would have been perfect. But still it’s an amazing place

    We stayed here in freezing December as a base for our wedding and the cottage was cozy warm and comfortable. Travelling down from London to stay in the most tranquil quiet setting was such a treat, I hope we can come back again it was so relaxing.

  • "Spent a lovely time in the cottage which was a godsend given the bad weather."

    Lovely crockery, sturdy glasses, lots of hooks to hang things on, wood burner and very well equipped. Just wish the lounge areas had more seating. We were only a four and it was a bit of a squish. Annie the key holder was great and was able to advise on things to bring, local eateries etc. I would definitely recommend.

  • "We loved our stay at Chasewoods Farm Cottage."

    The house is ideally located being in a beautiful rural setting backing on to woodland and overlooking fields to the front but only 10 minutes drive to Marlborough. Our 5 year old daughter really enjoyed it too and loved exploring the house and the freedom to run about in the garden. It was great having Annie who looks after the house living just down the lane as she was so helpful. Stonehenge is only an hour away and so worth visiting while Avebury is just a few minutes away and so atmospheric and beautiful. We have already booked for next year and can't wait to go back!

  • "This is an absolutely beautiful cottage set in rural surroundings."

    If you are looking for somewhere to get away from it all then highly recommend this. Cottage is decorated beautifully with a mix of modern and old. Very cosy snug area , open plan kitchen great for reading , but then second sitting room with small tv which was great for our 16 year old. Cottage has fully stocked kitchen. Everything you need. Fantastic area to be based to enjoy the surrounding areas. Great if you like walking and wildlife. Can’t recommend enough. We felt as a family it was home from home.

    The cottage was beautiful and well equipped and very comfortable. I have booked through Sykes Cottage before and everytime we have been delighted with our accomadation and this one was just as delightful with a log burner that came in very useful when we woke up to 8inch of snow and no power but a very warm cottage. I would highly recommend Chase Cottage.

    ! It has been really thoughtfully and tastefully decorated and planned. We spent a family girls weekend away there so the accommodation suited us well. Loved the family room with the separate snug tv lounge. The views are stunning and it was very very peaceful (even in spite of the fact we were there for one of the 2 annual days permitted shooting nearby!!). Good walks from the door, Marlborough within easy reach and plenty of parking too. Highly recommended.

The property

Ogbourne St George 1.5 miles.

This detached, former farm cottage is in a truly rural location, high up on the Ridgeway in Wiltshire, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 1.5 miles from Ogbourne St George and 4 miles from Aldbourne.

Thoughtfully renovated, this attractive cottage offers a peaceful country base from which to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Inside, you’ll discover a warm and comfortable social space with a superb kitchen and dining area, together with comfy seating where you can relax and snuggle up in front of the woodburning stove.

There’s a further separate sitting room for those who wish to disappear to watch the TV in peace!

There’s a shower room as well as a bathroom on the ground floor, so you won’t all have to queue up in the morning.

Upstairs, there’s room for your entire group, including the youngsters, and there are amazing views across the nearby farmland from the front windows.

Outside, there’s half an acre of lawned garden to enjoy, whilst the well-marked Ridgeway Trail goes straight past the front fence, offering fantastic walking opportunities.

The two adjacent villages of Aldbourne and Ogbourne St George have friendly pubs serving good food and real ales, and there’s a lively golf club close by, whilst the attractive market town of Marlborough has a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

A little further afield, but easily accessible, are the ancient stone circles of both Avebury and Stonehenge, and the Kennet and Avon canal which winds its way through the picturesque Pewsey Vale towards the regal city of Bath.

Should you seek a peaceful holiday base far from the madding crowd then this lovely Wiltshire cottage is the place to stay!

About the location


Malborough 4 miles; Swindon 8 miles; Aldbourne 6 miles.

Nestling in the valley of the quaintly named River Og beneath the picturesque Wiltshire Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, only 3 miles from the attractive market town of Marlborough is the pretty little village of Ogbourne St George. The village boasts a fine pub serving good food and ales as well as a renowned golf club which welcomes visitors. About a mile above the village can be found the world famous Ridgeway, thought to be Britain's oldest road, 85 miles of track which mostly follows the chalk downland of Southern England and has been in constant use for 4000 years. Now mainly used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders enjoying the scenic views and exploring the many ancient Stone Age and Bronze Age burial mounds, which can be found along the route. The nearby town of Marlborough is thought to have one of the widest high streets in the country, and is the setting for Marlborough College. There's a lively weekly market here selling everything from clothing to fresh veg, and an interesting array of shops and restaurants. An easy drive takes you to the picturesque Kennet and Avon Canal, where at Pewsey or Devizes you can enjoy a leisurely boat trip, or how about a visit to the amazing ancient stone circles at Avebury or Stonehenge? Shopaholics are well catered for at the McArthurGlen shopping outlet in Swindon whilst the Museum of the Great Western Railway will keep the steam enthusiasts enthralled. The village offers visitors to this scenic area a wonderful holiday base at any time of the year.
