    “Very clean cottage with lots of character, in a pretty, quiet village setting.”

    Loved having the brook flowing right underneath the house, and the patio next to it. Well placed for visiting a range of places (particularly recommend Stourhead house & gardens nearby). Host welcoming & helpful. Although there is a caravan site on the farm, we were not at all bothered by the odd car going past into it. Could have been a little better equipped e.g. small bin liners. Loved the fresh flowers and milk left for us, thank you. Really close to the small town of Gillingham, where ...
