  • "Lovely property, quirky 15th century house with 21st century touches."

    Warm and welcoming in a great position. There were 2 concerns, parking is very tight we resorted to parking on the road. if you have slightly iffy knees there is no where to sit other than a metal framed chair, The sofas are so soft you actually cannot get up! A single armchair in place of the metal framed chair would really be useful otherwise well equipped has everything you need and much more besides. Owner left supplies for us and our dog

  • "I had a wonderful stay at 1 Peacock Cottage."

    The cottage was warm and welcoming upon arrival with timed heating and lighting so it felt immediately cosy. The property was completely spotless with lots of thoughtful touches left for guests - including a super cute Christmas stocking for my dog. There is such tremendous thought and attention to detail put in to the cottage - it may have been built in the 16th century but the amenities are definitely 21st century and the highest quality. The beds were super comfortable, and no expense has been spared with the soft furnishings. Yes - the stairs are narrow and the ceilings are low but that’s all in the property description - it wasn’t a problem for me as I’m only 5’2! It’s also very well equipped for staying with your dog and there are lots of lovely walks right in the doorstep (take your wellies in winter!). There really is everything you could possibly need for a lovely holiday in The Winterbournes. Thank you for a smashing stay!

  • "I really enjoyed my stay at peacock cottage We were there from the 18th of August for a week."

    My husband and my daughter Luna stayed there to The moment we arrived we said Wow! What a beautiful cottage and garden The cottage is small but so sweet. I definitely recommend it. The people that own the cottage We're very helpful and kind, such lovely people I haven't come across such lovely people before So friendly and helpful I have no fault on anything about the cottage Maybe at night sometimes you got woken up by the traffic But that's because I am a light sleeper But the garden and the surrounding area is just so beautiful. We did do a lot of walks and the ford just down from the cottage is definitely worth seeing. It's beautiful I paddle in it. What a beautiful place and lovely people I definitely recommend anyone to stay there. The owners even left us a bottle of red wine. And bread and left washing up materials ect. Definitely the best place I have stayed in through you. Thank you I would definitely go back. Wish I was still there. The weather was hot every day, we were so lucky.

    Thank you so much for such the review. That was very kind of you. Thrilled you had such a good time and you were able to see so many of the gems Wiltshire has to offer! It was a pleasure to have you stay. We enjoyed swapping car stories and it was nice to see your car on the drive. Thank you for leaving the cottage so tidy! A & B. Property Owner

  • "What a truly special little cottage, every detail is so well thought out and an amazing balance of modern and the traditional period features!"

    Such a well equipped kitchen, the games were a delight and the beds comfy - a dreamy little holiday spot and great local pub. We’d move in if we could!

    Dear Christopher. Thank you so much for your very kind feedback. We have certainly tried hard to maintain some of the features which make Peacock such a special place. I’m glad you found everting you needed in the kitchen. We think we thought of everything? I’m glad you were able to enjoy your time in Winterbourne Dauntsey and hope you have a very good year. Warm regards. A&B Property Owner

The property

Salisbury 4.5 miles.

Settled on the outskirts of the historic city of Salisbury in Winterbourne Dauntsey is 1 Peacock Cottage.

This charming 16th century, Grade II listed cottage is bursting at the seams with character thanks to its thatched roof, exposed beams, original woodwork, quarry tiles and gas fireplace, and is the perfect setting for couples or a small family and their canine companion looking to holiday in a cottage steeped in history.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home, which is renowned for being one of the oldest properties in Wiltshire, and step into the kitchen to help prepare a hearty meal to refuel after a day of exploring.

Later, unwind in front of the warmth of the gas fire and flick on the TV, snuggle up with your loved ones ahead of a well-earned family film night.

When the evening draws to a close, wash off the day’s adventures in the ground-floor bathroom before climbing the stairs to catch your rest in either the super-king-size or twin room.

1 Peacock Cottage lies paces away from The Winterbourne Arms, a local pub serving traditional pub fare and a variety of drinks, ideal for the evenings when you don’t fancy cooking.

Spend the day in Salisbury, where you can immerse yourself in local history at Salisbury Cathedral, home to the Magna Carta, famous clock dating back to 1386, and the impressive spire that dominates the city’s skyline.

Be sure to tour the plethora of museums including The Salisbury Museum, Arundells and the National Trust site of Mompesson House before stopping off for drinks at The Pheasant Inn or the 14th century Bell and Crown.

The New Forest National Park is also easily accessible by car, perfect for those looking to explore nature, spot wildlife, and take part in a variety of activities such as bus tours, cycling and lucky guests may even spot the wild horses roaming throughout.

Delve into the history of Wiltshire at 1 Peacock Cottage.

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!
