"We loved it!"
The property is as perfect as it looks in the photos. It has everything you need for a stay. 10/10. Would go back tomorrow.
"Property was beautiful!"
Quiet. We really enjoyed our stay at Foley’s Cottage and the open fire. Kitchen is very well equipped. The garden bedroom double was very comfortable. We absolutely loved the gardens and the summer house.
Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at Foley's Cottage. It's lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, it's in a fabulous location. We hope to welcome you back again very soon. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner
"What a lovely stay."
Foleys cottage was everything we had hoped for. It had rustic charm as well as comfort. The cottage was well maintained and the facilities were excellent. The best part for us was the Daren which was truly and exceptionally pretty. It had secret pathways and lots to explore. The 2nd double room was a bit too dim with very little natural light and the 3rd bedroom was a little musty - but nothing a good airing didn’t fix. It also became very cool in the evenings so relied on the wood fire more than expected. The paper and kindling provided was a little damp to light but we bought more kindling and papers and it made a great difference. Nothing like sitting in front of a lovely real fire, when we don’t have one at home. We had a lovely week, visiting Frome, Bath, Stourhead and lovely walks around the cottage to Boyton, Upper Lovell and Heytesbury. I would recommend Foleys.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your stay. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time away and we hope that we can welcome you again one day in the future. Best wishes, Manor Cottages. Property Owner
"Beautiful cottage in wonderful surroundings - with the most amazing gardens!"
Very well equipped and found a lovely little hamper of goodies waiting for us. The owners are very friendly and helpful - really can't fault this at all. A little gem in Wiltshire! Thank you again, so very much!
You are very welcome! It's great to hear that you enjoyed your time away and we hope we can welcome you again one day soon! Best wishes, HideAways. Property Owner
"We loved Foley's cottage!"
it was everything we hoped for and the information provided about the property was accurate. It exceeded our expectations and has completely restored my faith when booking and staying in holiday homes. Our last experience with a different (well known) company was a great disappointment and was nothing like what was advertised. I can't thank you enough for restoring our faith and providing us with the enjoyable and lovely experience we had at Foley's.
Thank you so much for this lovely review which is greatly appreciated. We're so glad you had such an enjoyable stay at Foley's Cottage and happy too that we have restored your faith in holiday homes! We would love to welcome you again. Best wishes Hideaway Cottages Property Owner
"What a gorgeous cottage, set in well cared for and beautiful gardens."
The cottage was not without its quirks, but that all fed into the experience of staying in an old cottage. If you want something super modern, this is not the place for you, but we really enjoyed the homely feel of this well loved cottage. And the open fire was a treat. :) Jude was also lovely, and extremely helpful with all our requests and info on the local area, which really helped us on our stay in Wiltshire. The parking is in the process of being renovated, which Jude did warn us about, but it was perfectly adequate for our stay. The closest pub, The Dove, which is only a minute's walk away, is ok. It doesn't have a lot of atmosphere and I think the food is overpriced, but it is very convenient and the staff are friendly. The Prince Leopold in the next village, on the other hand, is well worth a visit, as is The Bath Arms near Longleat. Both of these last two were great, with excellent food quality, and much more worth the price. We took the advice of going to Frome, Stourhead and Lacock during our stay, all of which did not disappoint. Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage, Jude.
Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time at Foley's Cottage and appreciate all of your comments. Best wishes, Hideaways Property Owner
"A really lovely cosy cottage, a great place to spend Christmas week with the family."
We're so pleased to hear that your family enjoyed a wonderful Christmas break at Foley's Cottage. We look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes, HideAways Property Owner
Ideal for 4 adults. The gardens and summer house are beautiful but alas due to the heatwave we hardly used them! The old parts of the cottage remained cool even when 34C outside. We will stay again!
So glad you enjoyed your stay even though it was very hot! We hope to welcome you again. Property Owner
"The cottage was fabulous and extremely well stocked for our every needs, including a complimentary basket of goodies."
The gardens were superb and we managed to get lots of sketching done. The entire rural areas is so beautiful, full of wildlife, and the Dove Inn across the road is very welcoming with excellent food. Thank you for a fantastic escape in the country!
Amazing you had a fabulous time at the cottage and enjoyed the complimentary basket. Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. Property Owner
"Another very enjoyable stay at Foley's."
Clean and comfortable, with a lovely welcome basket of goodies. Wonderful summer garden. A great location for exploring and walking in the beautiful Wylye valley and beyond.
Glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and the welcome basket. Thank you for leaving feedback. Property Owner
"Beautiful cottage and gardens!"
Just as it was portrayed. Very peaceful to relax in but also lots of walks and pubs around aswell. The cottage was very cosy and warm and it was well equipped to cook in . Altogether it was a wonderful holiday location and I hope to come back again !
Thank you for your lovely feedback and we're delighted that you had a peaceful, relaxing stay (and some nice walks too). We hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

"Beautiful cottage with fantastic garden."
We had peace and quiet and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The welcome hamper was much appreciated and Mrs Ball is so friendly and helpful.
"Our stay at Foley's Cottage was fantastic!"
Initial communications with Judith were warm and welcoming and any queries we had throughout our stay were promptly attended to and resolved. The property is situated in a lovely area with beautiful tiered gardens at the rear. The summer house was a great addition with a small fridge to keep drinks cool, and shelter for respite from the sun. The cottage had everything we needed for the week and we even managed to have a fire on one of the cooler evenings, that said, the central heating is excellent so the fire was more for atmosphere and marshmallows ;) The only issue we had was with the address that Sykes listed on their website and in their communications, which was incorrect, however Judith's directions were spot on and once I fed this back to her she was going to contact Sykes to have it rectified. 100% would love to stay again!
Thank you for your feedback. We're so pleased that you had such a lovely stay at Foley's Cottage. You're always welcome to stay again in the future! Property Owner
"We had a lovely holiday at Foleys Cottage it was a beautiful cottage and fantastic garden right in the middle of all things we wanted to see in Wiltshire."
It was Nice to arrive to a welcome pack and there is a pub/restaurant just 2mins walk which serves amazing food
"Foley's Cottage is a beautiful, peaceful location."
It is so picturesque and in the perfect location. Set on its own, but only a short walk to the local hostelry "The Dove Inn". Very easy to get to and only a short drive to many local attractions, such as Stonehenge, Salisbury, The New Forest and Bournemouth, to mention just a few. It is also perfect for a walk in the countryside too. After a pleasant day out, it's the perfect place to return to and relax, either in the beautiful gardens or the summer house. The enclosed yard is perfect for a relaxing meal outdoors in the fresh air, or under the cover of the very large umbrella, if the weather isn't too favourable. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay, and can't wait to return again. There was a lovely welcome hamper to greet us when we arrived. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here, it's the perfect location for couples, families, or a group of friends. I guarantee you won't regret a stay here.
Thank you recommending Foley's Cottage and for your lovely comments. We cannot wait to welcome you back! Property Owner
"We had a great week at Foley’s."
The cottage is warm, welcoming and comfortable. The garden is a delight. The cottage is the perfect place for exploring the lovely Wylye valley. We were sorry to leave and hope to be back.
We are pleased to hear you had a great week at Foley's and we would love for you to return in the near future! Property Owner
"The house is lovely in a great location but best of all is the amazing garden."
"Wonderful cottage amazing garden and fantastic pub minutes away with superb food."
This was an exceptional and beautiful property and the 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We would recommend this cottage without a shadow of doubt truly magical.
Thank you for the great review! We’re so happy you loved Foley's Cottage! Property Owner
"Foleys Cottage was even more beautiful than we imagined!"
From the quintessentially English garden to beamed low ceilings, uneven floors and even the antique rocking horse, it was perfect! The owners were really helpful and the cottage was clean and in good condition, with lovely extras like toiletries and a welcome hamper. We would definitely recommend this cottage and will hopefully return ourselves soon
Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at Foley's Cottage. It's lovely to get wonderful feedback from our guests and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner
"A beautiful, clean cottage."
Secluded and private. Hamper with coffee,tea and biscuits on arrival. Wonderful garden. All maintained to a high standard. A real home from home. Key instructions dealt with in a very friendly and proffessional way.
Many thanks for your lovely comments on Foley's Cottage. Hideaways Property Owner
"The lovely cottage is in a very rural location offering great walks amid beautiful countryside, however, close by pubs at Corton, Upton Lovell and Stockton Park offered great food and a very warm welcome."
We would highly recommend Foleys Cottage
"The beds really comfortable, the sofas also comfortable, the top bedroom and the garden room were delightful."
Unfortunately it was let down by the following, Both the lounge and master bedroom were extremely dark, we had to have the lights on all the time but even then they were still dark. A large part of the garden was very uncared for. The parking area was a joke. If two cars were able park there it would have been a miracle. As well as being quite steep the parking area also dipped to one side. Unpacking and packing the top box was extremely challenging. A note was left informing us that the main shower was not working which meant six people had to use a very small ground floor shower, I think that might warrant a some sort of refund. Whether you publish this feedback I leave to you, but I feel that the description was not quite accurate. But I take my hat off to the photographer for making it look so much better than it was.
"The cottage and gardens are charming & absolutely wonderful."
We thoroughly enjoyed choosing different settings to have morning coffee, a meal, afternoon cheese & wine or evening cocktail. There are just so many fabulous options. Picking an apple, pear or even local brambles (that are everywhere), to have with breakfast, was a bonus. Local pubs recommended by the proprietor are worth repeated visits. We certainly hope to return to Foley’s Cottage again in the future! Thank you!
"I think the reassurance of using a well established company when choosing your family holiday cannot be underestimated."
There are no worries about being scammed and you know that should there be any problems at all you can contact Sykes Holiday Cottages directly. We had an amazing family holiday!
"Wifi is very hit and miss and you have long periods when there is no access."
Local pub The Dove Inn was really good. The garden was very relaxing.
Dear Mr Grunwell, Thank you for alerting us to this matter, you will be pleased to know that fibre has just become available in our area so we have installed the most powerful wi-fi hub on the market to ensure that the WiFi is fast and reliable. Property Owner
"This was our second visit to Foley's Cottage,the first being during the Summer."
It was every bit as good during the Winter. Beautifully warm and comfortable and very well equipped. My wife and I together with our two grown up children had a wonderful Christmas in this beautiful cottage.My only comment is that a little padding on the main beam in the living room would be appreciated by this over 6ft tall man but that's largely my own fault!
"Thank you for a relaxing and comfortable stay - we loved the walks around Heytesbury and Fontwell Bishop."
Enjoyed a lovely meal at The Prince Leopold, Upton Lovell.
"A jewel in the heart of Wiltshire - beautiful cottage, picturesque location and surrounding countryside with so many fantastic places to visit."
A memorable nine days! Heart-filled thanks.
"We have had a lovely holiday in this beautiful cottage."
There was nothing missing that could have made our stay any better (thank you for the thoughtful goody basket). We visited Cheddar Gorge (beautiful views, well worth the climb), Longleat, The Bratton White Horse (again breath taking views), Poole (lovely finds at the pottery). Thanks again, we have already told our friends!
"What a beautiful cottage in a stunning part of the world."
We had three full days of walking (70km in all). Wow!! Forest, hills, wildlife and beauty all around. Salisbury is a lovely city and the cathedral a must to visit. Thank you.... we will be back!
"We had nice weather and a very comfortable stay at Foley's Cottage."
We enjoyed days out to Cheddar Gorge and Longleat. As really stunning cottage in a really beautiful garden, perfect for prosecco and cake on the lawn.
"A wonderful stay in an idyllic cottage."
It's a cottage which typifies rural England at its best! Full of character and charm - the master bedroom leading onto the garden is a superb feature. Thank you for a great stay!
"This was our first family holiday at Foley's Cottage and we had a wonderful time."
The cottage itself is charming, with a lovely garden. The rooms are all cosy and comfortable and the kitchen/diner was a natural gathering spot. The location is perfect for exploring Wiltshire and we made day trips to Stonehenge, Longleat, Bath and Avebury. Warminster is close by for shopping (and has a Waitrose). Several nice country pubs are nearby for evening meals. A lovely place to stay - highly recommended!
"Very relaxing stay in a warm, cosy and welcoming cottage."
Would highly recommend Stonehenge, Bath and Longleat - especially if staying with children. So much to see and do in this lovely area - could do with another week.
"After watching so many episodes of Escape to the Country it was wonderful to stay in a thatched cottage and experience the beautiful English countryside!"
We had a fantastic week. We loved Cheddar Gorge, Longleat and going on a canal ride in Bath. We had a lovely dinner at the Prince Leopold Inn and got to feed trout in the river! The garden leading out from the bedroom is beautiful. We have had a lovely week in your beautiful cottage. Thank you.
"We have fallen in love with this cosy cottage, so tastefully decorated with all amenities."
Very peaceful, the Summerhouse was so special - it and the gardens are quite magical. Loved the Dove Inn and the food at the Ginger Piggery was delicious. The surrounding towns and villages are out of a fairy tale. We visited Bath, Stow on the Wold and Chipping Camden as well as Salisbury and Stonehenge. Spent our last day here at the cottage. Thank you for our Welcome Hamper! Most of all thank you for sharing this very special home with us. We hope to return soon!
"Thank you so very much for the wonderful welcome basket and for allowing us to stay in your little peace of heaven."
The house is delightful and the gardens are spectacular. Our children really enjoyed the summer house. We visited Stonehenge, Salisbury, The Eden Project, Oxford and Bath. We've toured houses and gardens but I think for all of us our favourite thing about the week has been our country walks around Corton and our quiet evenings in the cottage. Such a special place.
"We stayed here for a short break in October."
It was a picturesque location and allowed our family of 6 to spread out, play in the gardens and relax at home for dinner. We could also easily get to Bath and Stonehenge. Special thanks for walking us through the last few meters to the place as we arrived late at night and it was difficult to see the cottage!
"Thanks to our host, we found your cottage to be Wonderfoley!"
To all the guests that follow, we hope you have a great time too!
"Thank you for letting us enjoy a few days in this magnificent cottage, the ideal home for a truly traditional Christmas; it made all the difference!"
Beautiful grounds all around and some crispy snow on Wednesday!
"We have had a brilliant Christmas at Foley's Cottage - Thank you for arranging the beautiful tree and Father Christmas found us here too!"
Our girls loved it and it was the perfect cosy retreat for our family Christmas. Thank you so much and Happy New Year!
"Thank you for a lovely stay in your super cottage."
We loved the retreat it gave us over the festive period. The walks around here are lovely and relaxing (even with three kids in tow!). We visited Bath which was busy but stunning. We were also given a tip from the lady at The Dove Inn about the Festival of Lights at Longleat - we managed to get a couple of tickets and went on 2 January and the whole thing was amazing. We would love to come back some day.
"Lovely cottage, great location and beautiful garden!"
We have had a wonderful time here!\ Thank you.\
"We have greatly enjoyed our stay here at Foley's cottage and we have been very lucky with the weather!"
We have been very comfortable in the cottage and the garden is beautiful. We have loved spending both sunny mornings and evenings on the terrace and lounging in the big garden chair!\ Thank you very much for the lovely stay, we would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone.\
"Enjoyed an incredible warm and lovely week in Foley's Cottage."
The weather was so good that we spent several days in the cottage garden. Also visited Salisbury Cathedral, Wells Cathedral, Bath, Sherborne, Shaftesbury, Stonehenge and Old Sarum.\ A fabulous stay! Thank you!\
"Welcome pack much appreciated."
Lovely cottage and garden especially the big seat! Would recommend The Dove Inn and the Thai Rice restaurant in Warminster. Salisbury good to visit as is Boscombe Down Aviation Collection and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
"Lovely house and gardens."
Lovely birthday celebration.\ Thanks\
"We had a wonderful stay in this amazing cottage and surrounding area."
We visited some of the surrounding villages and enjoyed afternoon tea then games in the summer house! Would definitely recommend The Dove Inn for a meal as we enjoyed a wonderful Sunday roast! The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable and along with a stunning garden made the perfect Easter getaway, wish we could have stayed longer!\ Thank you!\
"Another amazing week, our sincere thanks."
"We came here last year for New Year and booked again because we loved it so much and it didn't disappoint!"
Fabulous stay in a lovely cottage, thank you.
"The cottage was charming and nicely located - very peaceful."
Wonderful gardens. The layout of the rooms worked well. Furniture and fittings were comfortable, attractive and homely. The cottage feels like a home and not simply a holiday let. The kitchen and fittings let the house down a little, hence not awarding the top score.
"The cottage was very well appointed and very comfortable."
The kitchen was very well equipped.the garden was beautiful and a real pleasure to sit in.....we had amazing weather!
"The very definition of "quaint", Foley's cottage looks like your typical old-fashioned, English home on the outside: small and charming (and thatched!"
), but inside was big enough for our family of 4 kids and 2 adults to come "home" to and relax next to a cozy fire after a tiring day of exploring the countryside. Kids (ages 6, 8, 9 and 11) loved exploring, roaming and running around the backyard playing all kinds of games. Going further afield, its location was ideally situated for day trips out to Bath, Avebury and Salisbury. Would not hesitate to recommend Foley's Cottage to friends and family ... but only if I don't book the place again first!
"What a beautiful and welcoming cottage."
The photos do not do it justice! We have had a wonderful week here, log fire burning, games. Everything you could need is here and the kitchen well equipped so we were able to cook a wonderful Christmas dinner
"This cottage is wonderful."
We all felt at home during this time. Thank you so much for everything. This place offers the perfect relaxing feeling and still you will get to see lots of places.

Tucked away behind mature hedges and approached via a wooden footbridge, Foley’s Cottage is every inch the Quintessential English country cottage – thatched, detached and tucked away on a quiet lane, impossibly cute and surrounded by a delightful garden. Unsurprisingly, we fell in love with the cottage when we visited, and are sure you will too!
Inside the cottage is cosy and peaceful yet it is full of traditional charms which give it a lovely, historic feeling.
The colours are restful and muted and with the added attraction of good quality furnishings, you can’t help but feel right at home.
A stroll to the top of the grounds is rewarded by sweeping views of the surrounding downs.
In the orchard you’ll find the well-appointed summerhouse providing a wonderfully peaceful haven for relaxing after a day’s activities in this outstanding area perhaps before taking a short stroll to the famous Dove Inn and restaurant just below.
Its instant chocolate box appeal is obvious, and we’d imagine you’ll enjoy it as much as we did.
The delightful market town of Warminster can be found to the south west of Salisbury Plain, at the head of the lush Wylye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Well known for its military connections, the old charm of the town centre has been preserved, where you can still find quaint houses and inns built from the local Warminster stone.
Nearby there are lovely walks in abundance, while no visit to this area would be complete without exploring the house, gardens and safari park at Longleat.
Foley’s cottage is great for families looking to explore the area of Warminster and the surrounding area.
