The property

Mays Cottage is a cosy property nestled in the village of Charlton, near Ludwell, South Wiltshire.

An attractive cottage, this is the ideal venue for couples looking for a romantic break to the countryside.

Enter through the traditional stable door into the charming ambience of the sitting room, boasting a woodburning stove.

Snuggle up with your loved one on the comfortable two-seater sofa and turn on TV to enjoy a movie together.

Across the way you will find the family bathroom, complete with a WC, basin and bath, perfect for winding-down after a day exploring the countryside.

If a romantic night in is on the agenda, take advantage of the fully-equipped kitchen and prepare a home-cooked meal for two, to be enjoyed sitting at the dining table located in the airy garden room.

On a summer’s night, why not indulge in a drink or two on the seating provided in the outdoor courtyard whilst sharing stories and planning for the day ahead.

After an evening of great food and even better company, head back through to the sitting room and up the stairs, to get some much needed rest in the snug double bedroom, featuring a double bed and fitted storage for housing all of your belongings.

A second bedroom is just a short walk across the hall and features a single bed as well as storage aplenty, making this a great option for those traveling in groups of three.

If you want to get out and about during your stay, head into Shaftesbury to visit the Abbey Museum and Garden and learn all about the first Benedictine women’s only nunnery, or take a walk up Castle Hill to experience the beautiful countryside views.

For a great day day out take a trip to Salisbury, Bath, Sherborne or Stourhead as well as the isle of Purbeck with plenty of things to do.

May Cottage makes a romantic countryside get-away for you and your loved one.
