  • "Although the lodge was small it was well furnished and fixtures and fittings were of a high standard."

    It was exactly as described on the website and was a great base to explore Wiltshire. We particularly enjoyed watching the bats feeding in the twilight. Cirencester was well worth a visit and the Cotswold water park had some lovely walks. Would definitely recommend.

  • "It was a very nice stay at the Lodge at Morton's, The location was a perfect peaceful and beautiful area and so close to the Cotswolds attractions such as Bibury, Bourton on the waters, Castle Combe etc."

    The downside was the Wi-Fi connection was quite bad and no phone signal around the area, but if you would like to relax without social media or people's distraction this is the best place for you. Lastly, the owner needs to put the name of the place sign by the road in front of the property on both ways, it is quite difficult to find the place.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at The Lodge at Mortons. It's a lovely location to base yourself in to explore the Cotswolds and surrounding areas. We will pass on your comments about the Wi-Fi to the Owner for review, so thank you. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "The Lodge was excellent."

    Had everything we needed with little luxuries included. Sitting outside listening to bird songs was a highlight. A great location, quiet, peaceful, private with uninterrupted views across fields and countryside. Easy driving along virtually empty roads visiting villages and Manor houses in North Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire. The caretakers could not have been more helpful. Our only gripe was with 2 Sykes employees, we had a problem finding the property and they were incapable of map reading until a senior employee phoned us back and directed us.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and are sorry to hear that you had difficulty finding the property, we are glad that we were able to help. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

    ..quiet bliss....Great place to stay for a long wkend location offers short drive to many highly recommend pubs which serve excellent food beers and wines especially Potting Shed or Rectory Hotel where you can go for pre-dinner cocktails as Potting Shed is it's Sister.

Highly recommended a stay can't wait to go back for another long wkend.

  • "DIRECTIONS: Were very confusing and ittooks a great deal of time to find the property and was grateful it was not raining or that we did not arrive ve in the dark."

    At one point we thought we were going to have to book into a hotel! "Following the lane to the village sign for Hankerton on the left IN THE DISTANCE', Little Moreton is on the right". Your description under TRAVELLING TO THE PROPERTY. The actually description is: Travelling along Murcott Lane, about 50 yds BEFORE reaching the Hankerton sign on the left, Little Mortons is on the right. You do not actually travel into Hankerton village, which is very confusing. Disappointed your instructions are incorrect. The property was very clean, a food package was amazing with many useful products and cleaning equipment. The owner was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble his advice whenever we required this. Unfortunately, the one negative for us, was there wasn't a wardrobe, only 6 pegs in the apartment for us to hang our clothes and there were no drawers in which to put our tee shirts, underwear etc.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments on The Lodge at Mortons. We apologise that the directions are confusing, We have now updated them for future guests. Manor Cottages. Property Owner

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.
