    “We had a lovely long weekend at the Little Paddock.”

    A lovely home that has everything you need for a great time away. Good selection of board games and a games room keep you entertained. There's also a gym and outdoor trampoline if you're feeling active or you can just sit in the garden and enjoy the views.

The property

Settled on the outskirts of the lovely market town of Malmesbury in the Wiltshire countryside is this beautiful detached dwelling, The Little Paddock.

Comprising a single-storey house and a first-floor annexe, The Little Paddock offers eight guests something special and is the perfect choice for a family or group getaway, perched on the edge of the amazing Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

After a fulfilling day of walking, look forward to returning to The Little Paddock to relax in the lovely sitting room, where quaint pastel colours set a peaceful scene, and a large sofa and armchairs provide the perfect spots to enjoy the Smart TV.

Enjoy social evenings in the kitchen/diner, with a dining table placed before the large folding glass doors overlooking the garden, and a stylish kitchen equipped with a wealth of quality appliances, including three ovens, an induction hob, and more found in the utility area too.

A separate dining room offers a wonderful space for a more formal family meal, great for gathering to celebrate an occasion.

Enjoy a peaceful moment in the charming sunroom where sofas and another Smart TV can be found, or take yourself into the beautiful garden which is completely enclosed, fabulous for your four-legged friends.

Discover an amazing permanent gazebo outside, complete with plenty of outdoor seating and heaters too, so you can enjoy the fresh air of the Wiltshire countryside into the evening.

When you're ready to rest and refresh for the next day, choose from three bedrooms in the main house, with a super-king-size with a Smart TV and a super-king-size which can be a twin on request both sharing Jack-and-Jill access to a stunning bathroom featuring a gorgeous roll-top bath and a walk-in shower.

A sleek and spacious shower room offers another luxury spot to freshen up in, serving the king-size bedroom, whilst over in the annexe on the first floor is a king-size bedroom complete with an en-suite shower room and yet another t.v., perfect for a couple who wish to find a moment away from the excitement of the group.

When you can tear yourself away from this exceptional abode, head into the historic town of Malmesbury to find all you need for a self-catered stay, from supermarkets to local shops, cafés and traditional pubs, this lovely town set upon the River Avon is a wonderful base.

Discover the rich history here too at the magnificent Malmesbury Abbey, dating back to the 12th century and still in use today, as well as The Abbey House Gardens and Athelstan Museum.

Enjoy strolls along the River Avon or venture into the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for a wealth of well-travelled walks and cycling routes, perfect for the outdoor adventurer.

Find quaint towns and villages along the way, like Tetbury with its local museum or Westonbirt, home to The National Arboretum, or enjoy a regal day out to Prince Charles' Highgrove House where The Royal Gardens at Highgrove are sure to impress, just make sure you book in advance!

Travel further north to the town of Cirencester to find a host of Roman heritage, with Cirencester Amphitheatre and the Corinium Museum displaying fascinating information about life as a Roman, alongside more lovely cafés, restaurants and pubs.

Enjoy a holiday full of scenic outings in the Wiltshire countryside with your loved ones from The Little Paddock.

About the location


Chippenham 11 miles; Cirencester 13 miles; Bath 23 miles; Tetbury 5 miles.

Dating back to the Iron Age and reputedly the oldest borough in England, the pretty market town of Malmesbury is located on a hilltop in the southern Cotswolds. Malmesbury is steeped in history and offers visitors over 400 listed buildings, a 15th century Market Cross, a ruined 7th century Benedictine abbey, an annual carnival and many independent shops, cafes and traditional pubs. Abbey House Gardens, home to 'The Naked Gardeners' can also be found in Malmesbury (Note: The gardeners are clothed during normal opening hours) and the annual Womad Music Festival is close by at Charlton Park. The area offers many country houses, including Rodmarton Manor and Gardens, and Chavenage House, a fine example of a Cotswold manor unchanged for 400 years. Just a short drive away is The Cotswold Water Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering 40 square miles and offering a wide range of activities, including boating, waterskiing, fishing, cycling, golf and horse riding, plus Bath, Cirencester and Tetbury are all within easy reach and well worth a visit.
