  • "The apartment was in a grear location, very peaceful."

    It was lovely sitting out in the garden. The aparment is very well equipped. If you have limited mobility, of it should be noted the aparrment is on one level, but some people may find the beds and lounge furniture a little on the low side. All in all, it was an idyllic stay. Thankyou.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback and we're glad you loved the apartment and the peaceful location. We hope to welcome you again. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Shutts House Garden Apartment."

    The house is spacious, clean, and well equipped, with ample parking for at least three cars. Nigel was kind enough to leave some local goodies in the kitchen, which made us feel very welcome. Communication with Nigel was great, and we appreciated the comprehensive welcome pack.

    Thank you for providing this lovely feedback and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay (and the local goodies!). We hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "We came as a family of six, plus 2 year old toddler, we all agreed we would love to return to this fantastic property."

    Great to meet owner Nigel who provided lovely local produced foody items, and everything needed to make guests welcome. Super size beds, so comfy. Beautiful, spotlessly clean, stylish house. Lovely well kept garden, with lots of outdoor furniture and space for grandson Oliver to enjoy the fantastic weather we had. Thank you also to Nigel, for providing an inflatable bed for toddler Oliver. Village post office just a short walk away, which provides essentials, very friendly staff too….Location great for touring surrounding areas, we visited Salisbury, Stonehenge & Corfe Castle and a little local farm with animals for children to pet. Also great walks close to the house and well equipped children’s play park. Thank you again Nigel, for making fabulous memories of our family holiday to Wiltshire. We would definitely recommend this beautiful ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️holiday home. Dee Douglas and family

    Great location and Nigel was really helpful during our stay. Salisbury was close to the property and access to the Park and Ride service was really useful.

    Beautiful accommodation which we could not fault and a very thoughtful and much appreciated Welcome Pack. A good starting point for many walks of differing lengths. A fantastic, accommodating host. If this accommodation has come up on your radar, then don't look any further - just book it and you won't be disappointed.

  • "What a fabulous property!"

    Nigel was a true gentleman! The flat is beautiful and the welcome gifts (bread, butter, tea, milk, fruit cake, biscuits - the list goes on) were unexpected but certainly well received! I would recommend this property to anyone and we’re already considering a return in the spring! Nigel, what you have done is truly amazing and the experience you provide is exceptional! A true perfectionist in the art of running a short term let! Well done!

  • "Enjoyed a lovely stay in this comfortable and beautifully appointed apartment."

    It was very private with a lovely garden (must be great to sit and eat outside in the summer). I loved that it was all on one level, so perfect for our family (ages 15 - 87). Nigel’s welcome pack was generous and much appreciated. Once we’d followed the instructions for the heating we were able to get the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms/en-suites warm, like the rest of the apartment. Coombe Bissett is a super village (fabulous shop and handy pub), with Salisbury on the doorstep. We also visited Stonehenge and had a day out to the New Forest, both easy distance. Useful information at the apartment helped us decide where to go. Well recommended.

  • "This property is in an excellent location - we were able to visit Lulworth Cove, Bournemouth, the New Forest and look around the local area of Salisbury and Coombe Bissett too."

    The property is lovely - very modern and the fact each bedroom has its own bathroom is a bonus. The owners very kindly left some goodies on our arrival and were also very helpful with a couple of things that needed sorting out. Whilst we were there we were thinking it would be great if the property had a hot tub installed on the patio area - this would have been great to use of an evening.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Your suggestions for improvement will be passed onto the owner, and we hope to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner

  • "The apartment was clean, warm and comfortable and very well equipped."

    The owner was extremely helpful when we had a partial power cut (caused we think by rain water getting in during a very heavy storm). We enjoyed the log-burner at night and we were very pleased to receive the welcome pack. It took us a while to work out how to use the oven (a user guide would have been helpful) but once we got the hang of it we had no problems. Local pub food was also excellent (we tried a few).

  • "Lovely accommodation with a very caring owner who provided a perfect balance of privacy but checked in that everything was satisfactory."

    In these COVID times, the apartment was cleaned to a standard that made us feel safe. A very nice welcome pack was provided and the owner made contact with us before the holiday with information about the accommodation and things to do in the surrounding area. We had a very pleasant weekend break in what was probably one of the nicest places we have stayed in. The only very minor downside was the garden which was not enclosed and with a young dog this meant that she had to stay on a lead although this certainly did not detract from our stay.

    The owner will be delighted to hear that Shutts House Apartment was one of the nicest places you have stayed. We will ensure the description states the garden is not enclosed. Many Thanks Hideaways. Property Owner

    It is definitely somewhere we will revisit. The accommodation is situated in a quiet position in a picturesque village only 4 miles from the centre of Salisbury. Plenty of country walks from the property and only a short drive to the centre of Salisbury with all its attractions. Also day trips further afield to the New Forest. The layout of the accommodation is very good, plenty of space and the facilities provided are excellent.

    Disappointed that the showers did not have a safety rail. This particularly affected me as I have a balance problem and a fear of falling, so each day started very nervously when showering. Apart from that the owner, Nigel, was very friendly and obliging and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Shutts House Garden Apartment surpassed our expectations."

    It’s even nicer in reality than it looks in the photos; so spacious and luxurious, offering every facility we could have wished for during our stay. The beds were fantastically comfortable and everywhere was immaculately clean. Nigel was the perfect host. He emailed us a week before our stay with ample helpful information including directions, general information about the property itself, plus various useful tips on local places to eat and visit. He also provided us with a lovely welcome pack of goodies. As mentioned in the listing, Nigel lives upstairs in the property with a separate access, but we never once felt observed at any time during our stay. He manages to strike the perfect balance of being welcoming (he popped round to say hello upon arrival and check we were ok) whilst also being extremely discrete and allowing us total privacy. We found Coombe Bissett to be a small but picturesque village with lovely dog walks over Coombe Bissett Down right on the doorstep. I can’t recommend this property highly enough.

The property

Shutts House Apartment really is a magnificent place to spend a holiday and guests will feel immediately at home, not least by the little touches the owner have left to ensure a comfortable stay.

Nestling in its private and secluded surroundings on the edge of the pretty village of Coombe Bissett, you will certainly have the impression of escaping to the country when you take up residence here but with all the modern comforts such sumptuous accommodation offers.

The owner, who lives in the upper part of the house with a completely separate entrance on the other side, have lovingly converted the lower level into an ultra-contemporary space with beautiful floors, soft furnishings and the highest standards of luxury throughout.

An important part of any day out will be returning at the end of it to relax in the peaceful, secluded garden and enjoy the almost Mediterranean effect of the luxurious outdoor furniture and discreet lighting - a magical experience.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
