  • "A wonderfully situated cottage in a beautiful part of the country."

    All four bedrooms were comfortable and there was lots of storage space. Unending piping hot water and the owner had kindly put on the heating before we got there since the weather was ‘on the turn’! Very peaceful location with lots of places within a short distance to visit and plenty of extremely good places to eat. Myself and my friends all enjoyed our week in the carriage house immensely and i look forward to returning.

  • "This is a clean and comfortable cottage."

    The kitchen is very well equipped. Downstairs bedroom & ensuite ideal for 90 year old with poor mobility. Added bonus to have use of lovely gardens and tennis court. There was a delicious bottle of home made apple juice waiting for us. We would definitely stay again.

  • "When I called for key collection information I was give excellent directions."

    The owners were very hospitable and went out of their way to meet and greet us and say goodbye despite the main house being very busy with B&B guests. We were grateful that they did not rush us out for the 10 am checkout on Sunday and were happy for us to sit in the sun for a coffee after we had packed our cars. They also provided helpful advice on local walks and pubs. We have been staying in cottages for walking weekends for 20 years and these were the comfiest beds we had ever slept in, the bedding was absolutely sumptuous. Our only observation would be that there was no welcome pack although this was not a problem for us as we had brought everything we needed. The tennis court was a bonus which we enjoyed.

  • "Great 4 bed cottage for a family celebration/get together over the New Year break."

    The ground floor double bedroom and shower room was great for our Mum who joined us for three days and the main room with dining and sitting areas was a larger than anticipated from the photographs. The Log Fire, built ready to light and a gorgeous christmas tree created that special seasonal atmosphere.

  • "Lucy was so welcoming, she showed us around the property and even offered to help us in with our bags."

    The house was clean and well presented. The added touches to the house was brilliant. Would highly recommend. We were moved here from another property which was not up to Sykes usual standard

The property

The Carriage House stands at the entrance to an impressive Grade II listed mansion in the small village of Worton, 6 miles from the attractive market town of Devizes.

Stylishly decorated and furnished, the accommodation comprises the major part of the former Carriage House, which has been carefully restored by its current owners.

There is ample space for a larger group but it is equally suitable for a smaller party.

Guests will have access to parts of the extensive grounds surrounding the main house, including use of the hard tennis court, the adjoining, secluded walled garden and former deer park beyond.

The main house and garden is of considerable architectural and historical interest.

Built in the early 20th century, it was reputedly used by Churchill, Eisenhower and Sikorsky for secret meetings during the 2nd World War.

Enter into a large and very attractive sitting room with an open fireplace and a spacious dining area at one end of the room.

There is also a modern fitted kitchen with integral appliances.

To finish off the downstairs there is a bedroom with a king size double bed in, and a shower room with a toilet and basin, which is accessible from the bedroom and the hallway.

Head to the upstairs of The Carriage House where the 3 remaining bedrooms are, one which consists of a zip and link bed offering the choice of a super-king size double or two single beds, a room with a 4 ft 6 double bed and finally a trundle bed, providing one or two singles as required.

Outside enjoy a cobbled courtyard garden area immediately in front of the house with garden furniture as well as access to parts of the grounds around the main house.

The house provides an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions of this fascinating part of Wiltshire.

The area is rich in prehistoric sites such as Avebury Stone Circle, Silbury Hill and Kennet Long Barrow and is also of interest for its industrial past ­Crofton Beam Engines and a working windmill at Wilton.

Narrow boat trips can be enjoyed on the nearby Kennet and Avon Canal and there is plenty of good walking on Salisbury Plain with immediate access  onto a public footpath from the house.

The historic towns of Bradford­-on­-Avon, and Marlborough, well known for their antique shops, pubs and restaurants, are a short drive from Worton,while the Georgian city of Bath, a World Heritage site, the cathedral city of Salisbury and Stonehenge are within half an hour’s  drive.Further afield, The Cotswolds and Oxford are within reach for a day’s excursion.
