    The cottage was peaceful and lovely and cool as the weather was hot. Found the duvets to be far too heavy but that is just a personal thing I realise everyone cannot be catered for easily.

Quietly tucked away in the conservation area of the pretty village of Hindon, on the borders of Wiltshire and Dorset, can be found this attractive semi-detached brick and Chilmark stone Victorian cottage.

This comfortably furnished and very well-appointed Hindon cottage provides a charming holiday home for families or friends wishing to explore this lovely area.

The cosy interior of this Wiltshire holiday cottage boasts a well-equipped kitchen featuring granite worktops, and there’s a choice of creating delicious meals using the lovely Rayburn or the conventional electric oven, whilst you relax in the cosy sitting room with its woodburning stove, or on warmer days enjoy sitting in the sunny conservatory.

The main bedroom at your Hindon holiday home has a super king-size double bed with a superb en-suite featuring a Jacuzzi bath and separate shower.

Outside this Wiltshire cottage you can choose between two seating areas, there’s a small pretty enclosed lawned garden and patio to the front, whilst at the rear is a walled courtyard, both of which offer a great place to socialise after busy days out.

From this cottage in Hindon you can take the short stroll up through the attractive conservation area where two pubs await, both serving good food and real ales, whilst the village shop is well stocked with local produce.
