  • "Kings Cottage South was a great place for a group of friends (such as ourselves) or family."

    The living areas were spacious and the kitchen well equipped. The log burner, the aga and underfloor heating kept us cosy and warm. Everything was very clean and the owner greeted us as we arrived late to help us find the key. Sykes Cottages and the owner were very responsive for any queries we had. There seems lots to do in the area although for us as the weather wasn't good we visited some lovely local pubs (recommended by the owner) or played board games in the evening which was great fun. We would happily go again.

    We are happy to hear that you had such a good time whilst staying with us at Kings Cottage - South. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay at Kings Cottage as a group of school friends!"

    The space was exactly what we were looking for and was well equipped, very comfortable in a scenic location. The only slight niggle we had was an issue with the shower head in one of the bathrooms but the owner was easily reachable and it didn’t bother us enough to detract from our stay. We will definitely be back!

    Excellent location, high end kitchen and finishing throughout, great for a family of 8 adults to stay. Oh and the local village pub, minutes walk away really was the icing on the cake. Fabulous food and service. We had a wonderful week!

  • "Brilliant holiday rental set in glorious surroundings."

    Our hosts were lovely and extremely prompt in sorting out the one issue we had. A slightly better equipped kitchen, (more cooking utensils), would have been nice but its not a game changer and it certainly wouldn't stop us from recommending a stay. We have a fantastic week

    Thank you for your feedback, we are are so pleased you had a lovely time! There is a jar of utensils on the side and also plenty more in the draw which perhaps was overlooked. We would be delighted to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "This cottage was lovely with lots of space and everything you could need from a home away from home."

    Great kitchen and dining room, really cosy. The location is great and convenient for Salisbury. We did a walk around the village and to the neighbouring one. Really nice countryside all around and a very welcoming local pub. Salisbury was a fabulous city. Seeing the cathedral is a must. All in all highly recommend Kings Cottage South and a trip to Wiltshire.

  • "We found Kings Cottage South a wonderful holiday house for a large family of all ages with the luxury of spaces that include an outstanding dining area for 8 off the kitchen, 4 fine bedrooms (one rather magnificent), and a kitchen that boasts two dishwashers among much superior equipment."

    Just outside we explored the beautiful Chalke Valley, complete with clear chalk stream, green fields, and walks that suited everybody from the ambler to the hillwalker. The owner is thoughtful and supportive; she has ensured that sound precautions to make the house COVID safe do not obtrude or spoil the special experience… we had a very good week indeed!

    Thank you for your amazing comments on Kings Cottage South! Property Owner

    The cottage was large enough for us all and was set in a rather quaint village. We were within driving short distances of Longleat Stonehenge and Salisbury. It was equipped with everything we needed and more including double crockery and cutlery and even 2 dishwashers. Also the communication with the owner whilst there was very good. Would definitely use again and recommend

  • "We had a really great week away at South Cottage."

    Such a lovely place to stay and set in a tranquil village. The cottage is very well equipped, we particularly enjoyed the double dishwasher feature! The place was super clean and the owner got in touch beforehand to assure us of the extra measures put in place to comply with COVID regulations. When we were there, the owner was very helpful and easily available to ask anything by email or text. Broad Chalke is a good base to explore Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire. With young kids, we enjoyed a trip to the Army Flying Museum, the ruins at Old Sarum, Avon Beach, the New Forest and Cholderton Charlie’s Farm. All in all, a fantastic holiday!

    This exceeded our expectations and we had a wonderful week away. The cottage is exceptionally well equipped and has a great home from home feel. It was very clean and with the current covid regulations on place we felt extremely safe. The complimentary tea, coffee, local honey and chocolates were very welcomed! The village has a little park which entertained our little ones and a lovely welcoming pub where we could sit outside easily. Lovely walks around the village. We will be returning.

    The facilities in the cottage were exceptional, everything you could possibly need & more! The only minor thing was that the garden was not fully enclosed, the gate was not totally escape free for small dogs!! We got over this by putting a line on the lawn to secure him . Would recommend a holiday here.

    A great kitchen and dining area which works really well for a large group; Aga style and traditional cookers, warm floor, good lighting and thoughtfully stocked with the things I invariably forget to bring (tin foil, cling flim, sugar, salt pepper, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid etc - as well as books games and DVDs in the sitting room - some places ive stayed are very bare. Its a nice area too - not far from a local pub, nice walks through the village and surrounding farmland via bridleways and footpaths and interesting to see the watercress farming too.

    Plenty of over-indulgence but some good walking too – some familiar haunts but also some new territory. We were very impressed with Hambledon Hill Iron Age settlement near Iwerne Minster, and enjoyed joining the locals for their coffee morning in the village hall. This is a very special hideaway. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable.

    Would highly recommend this property for parties comprising different generations and it certainly worked for us.

  • "Kings cottage south is a stunning property in a lovely location."

    Really well laid out and finished to a very high end. There were a few things that could be added. Hair dryers in each room, and a cup or something in the bathroom to hold toothpaste. Finally there was a noice in the master bedroom that woke my parents up each morning and sometimes in the night. We think it was the boiler in the next door property as the flew came out of the roof close to their room. The local area was very picturesque with a watercress farm at the end of the road. The local pub was within easy access and the food very good. We met a few villagers and we were greeted with a warm welcome. With all this in mind we would love to return to Kings cottage and Broad Chalke

    Mr Spain, we are sorry about the boiler and wish your parents had told us, as it would have been put right immediately. Regarding hair dryers in all bedrooms, we already provide one for the house but will increase this provision in future. Property Owner

About the location


Andover 17 miles; Southampton 23 miles

The medieval city of Salisbury is the jewel in Wiltshire's crown, dominated by the majestic 13th century Gothic cathedral. The cathedral offers 750 years of history including Britain's tallest spire, the world's best preserved original Magna Carta, and Europe's oldest working clock. The surrounding cathedral close, full of architectural gems, is bordered by the River Avon and ancient Chilmark stone walls. The city offers historic streets with charming half-timbered buildings, traditional pubs, characterful shops and a twice-weekly market. Or, stroll along the Town Path and take in the awe-inspiring views across the water meadows towards the cathedral. After dark, there's a thriving arts scene, including one of the country's leading repertory theatres, a lively arts centre, cinema and a wealth of independent restaurants. Should you want to explore further afield then a short drive from Salisbury takes you to Stonehenge, the National Trust's Stourhead House and gardens, majestic Wilton House, as well as the New Forest National Park, and the Hampshire and Dorset coasts. There's so much to see and do in Salisbury and surrounding area that your only concern will be finding the time to do it all!
