  • "Lovely cottage, very centrally located."

    Much appreciated the milk and cake, tea and coffee left for our arrival. I would say the listing is accurate as it is a quirky old cottage but also very comfortable and homely. We would definitely book again if visiting Salisbury.

  • "The hosts were very thoughtful and flexible."

    The cottage is in a super location close to the cathedral close and shops etc so everything is walkable but it's on a quiet road. I had a great stay.

  • "Everything was wonderful one only small thing really, the kettle is needing replacing."

    So much ferring and bits in the poured boiled water even after numerous ammounts of swilling out. But a lovely clean cottage

  • "Lovely little cottage very central to town."

    You can feel the history! Very compact downstairs so would be a squash for four adults. Kitchen well stocked with equipment and the welcome cake and Cava was delightful. Could not park outside the property at all but always got a space a road away. Bed very comfy. Only suggestion would be the rug in the lounge is now quite worn and is a bit of a trip hazard. Would recommend.

  • "This cottage is in a very convenient location for visiting Salisbury, and the owners were very helpful and friendly, even decorating for Halloween!"

    Also the fastest Wi-Fi of any holiday cottage I've started in. Please note that this a very petite cottage and the living area will be a bit cramped if you have a group of four adults.

  • "Gorgeous cottage full of character plus loads of kitchen utensils."

    We stayed here over the bank holiday with 2 kids and no car and it was perfect. Really close to town without being noisy. Loads of places to visit. Boscombe downs aviation collection was a highlight. Found fizz and cake on arrival and really decent sized towels. Highly recommended

  • "This cottage is beautiful!"

    It is small, but really well-organised so everything we needed was there. It was so historic and sensitively restored, that it felt a real privilege to get to stay there. The children loved the attic bedroom, and it was nice to be able to sit out in the little back yard with the flowers at breakfast time. The location is really handy for the cathedral precinct and town centre. The owner/housekeeping team were really welcoming and helpful. Would stay again.

  • "The location of the property was excellent - really handy to explore the centre of town on foot!"

    The cottage was well supplied and the brownies and Prosecco was a lovely touch. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to make a brew as soon as we arrived and the cups and glasses were a good size for use. All instructions were provided and were straightforward and after asking 1 question I received a very prompt reply that answered my question well. We both enjoyed our break in Salisbury and would highly recommend Inglenook cottage, although cosy, it is an ideal and well equipped location that allows easy access locally and to the surrounding area.

  • "Firstly if anyone is in doubt about a visit to salisbury, make up you mind and plan to go."

    Secondly if anyone is in doubt about Inglenook Cottage then make up your mind now and just book it - unless you are very tall... Both exceeded our expectations. Inglenook Cottage is down a residential street very very close to the Cathedral and almost in the city centre. It has residential on street parking which I always fear as I have been forced to park 2-3 streets away at other properties as its just a first come first served scramble. When we arrived we were able to park bang across the road opposite the property - however there was a sign saying that parking on the street would be suspended so for the next two days we left the car 100 yards away - it was that easy. All the other residents park sensibly leaving an amount of space which is great if you have a big car like me. Christian had emailed about the parking suspension when he sorted the parking permits so it was not a surprise and great communication. Into the cottage, a couple of hanging citrus decorations mean you are immediately struck by the smell. We come from a 5 bedroom, large new build city house - so the compact downstairs full of citrus smells (and flowers) was a shock - initially assumed as "been empty for a long time" but wrong. Within hours we realised it was the charactor of the propery. After 4hr travelling we intended to head straight for the local shop for supplies, but needn't bother as Christian and team had Milk, Wine and a Drizzle cake in the fridge ready for us. Once you get used to age of the property (again coming from a totally different environment) its charming. The kids (well 16 years olds) had never experienced a "cottage" despite years of fascination driving through villages with "houses with small doors" - fell in love with it when they climbed the spiral stairs to their bedroom in the roof. Very clean, and just really nice. Pub 50 yards away, not the greatest but we are social people so within minutes were we in with the locals. All very laid back- might not be everyones cup of tea but after a full day walking around the town the chance for 2 pints - whilst playing pool with the locals was great. The Huntsman Tavern claims on its website to do food - it doesn't at the moment (June 2021) - but there are plenty of eateries in town and we never had any problems grabbing a table. In terms of pubs - special mention to the Haunch of Venison - smashing old real ale pub off the market place and the Wyndham Arms about 10 minutes walk by worth every step if you like real ale. But also the spoons by the river avon is one of the better ones I have used.

  • "My family and I had a wonderful stay at Inglenook Cottage over May bank holiday, which happened to coincide with my husband's birthday."

    The key was easily retrieved from the outdoor lockbox. We walked into the cottage to see the (fake) fire burning, a bouquet of red roses on the table, a bottle of fizz in the fridge and a homemade cake on the counter. The latter was personalised in icing with the words Happy Birthday and my husband's name! The kids said the cake was 98% nearly as good as Nana's, which was praise indeed. We couldn't get over the thought and generosity which had gone into making our welcome as warm as possible, and as a result we instantly felt at home (only nicer, as the girls said)! Having experienced dubious holiday rentals in the past, I'd come armed with washing up products, a bottle opener, milk and olive oil, even bin bags. However, none were needed as the kitchen was stocked with every essential item; from coffee and clingfilm to scissors and sellotape, this cottage provided for every eventuality. There were even two different kinds of milk on offer in the fridge, which we made the most of by sitting with our morning tea at the outdoor seating area behind the cottage. The courtyard was shared with other houses, but that made no difference to our enjoyment as the space was quiet and light, and the garden table was surrounded by freshly growing herbs. The decor of Inglenook Cottage is prettier than the photos show; the decor is thematically old but clearly lovely and fresh, and there are some really tasteful flourishes dotted around the place. A truly dreamy and delightful combination of old and new aesthetics awaits. Back in the real world, there's also good Wifi, a modern telly with a Netflix option, and a Bluetooth speaker available for use. bedrooms were light and airy, and the beds were extremely comfortable, with duvets 'like sleeping in a cloud', as one of the kids put it. Likewise the bath towels, which felt extremely fluffy and luxurious. The bathroom was kitted out with a bottle of handsoap and some shower gel - again, something every holiday rental should provide but doesn't - and looked and smelled very clean. Communication with Christian the owner was easy, and his tips on making the most of our visit were truly invaluable. He took the time to respond to my curious emails, and before and during our stay he did everything possible to ensure we'd enjoy our time at his cottage. Shops had only just newly re-opened, and with lockdown easing to enable diners to eat outdoors but not inside, it was a little complicated planning our weekend and our meals out, but thanks to Christian's advice I had already booked sheltered tables at a various delicious restaurants for the full weekend. Only once we'd arrived in Salisbury did we realise the city's eateries' outdoor seating was all but reserved - we would've been very hungry without Christian's input! Situated in the centre of Salisbury, location-wise you couldn't get a better spot, especially as the cottage is in a lovely quiet street. It's close to absolutely everything in the city centre, and a short drive to Sarum Fort and the obligatory Stonehenge. There are also plenty of fantastic country pubs surrounding the city, which we enjoyed (again, booking a few days to a week before was essential!) thanks to Christian's recommendations. I appreciate I've written a mighty tome here rather than dashing off a few quick words, but I really feel Christian and his cottage deserved a truly representative review. We had a fantastic time in Salisbury, which certainly wouldn't have been as enjoyable without Christian's care and attention as a host. You can be sure Inglenook Cottage comes highly recommended!

    The cottage is tiny but beautiful. Good range of cooking equipment in the kitchen. The bed in the main bedroom is confortable but the twin beds at the top are not (according to our teenage children).

  • "This is a charmingly appointed cottage close to all the facilities available in the city."

    The cottage catered for all our needs; the bottle of wine and brownies which were awaiting us on arrival made us feel welcome. There is a very good range of cooking equipment and eating irons / cutlery etc. The olde worlde feel adds to its charm. We had a bit of trouble locating the communal courtyard on arrival. It isn't obvious, perhaps greater clarity here . The cooker controls could be indicated. Thank you for a delightful few days. Wholeheartedly recommended, a lovely few days stay

    The cottage may be small but all eventualities catered for, the location is perfect for sightseeing. We did remove the rug from in front of the fire as it kept moving and became a trip hazard. A very happy stay thank you

About the location


Andover 17 miles; Southampton 23 miles

The medieval city of Salisbury is the jewel in Wiltshire's crown, dominated by the majestic 13th century Gothic cathedral. The cathedral offers 750 years of history including Britain's tallest spire, the world's best preserved original Magna Carta, and Europe's oldest working clock. The surrounding cathedral close, full of architectural gems, is bordered by the River Avon and ancient Chilmark stone walls. The city offers historic streets with charming half-timbered buildings, traditional pubs, characterful shops and a twice-weekly market. Or, stroll along the Town Path and take in the awe-inspiring views across the water meadows towards the cathedral. After dark, there's a thriving arts scene, including one of the country's leading repertory theatres, a lively arts centre, cinema and a wealth of independent restaurants. Should you want to explore further afield then a short drive from Salisbury takes you to Stonehenge, the National Trust's Stourhead House and gardens, majestic Wilton House, as well as the New Forest National Park, and the Hampshire and Dorset coasts. There's so much to see and do in Salisbury and surrounding area that your only concern will be finding the time to do it all!
