  • "An amazing cottage in a beautiful area with a lot of things to do in the neighbourhood."

    We enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was very well equipped and had beautiful views from the windows.

  • "I am so disappointed."

    I chose this property partly because of a pub in walking distance and an enclosed lawn for our dog. The pub is completely derelict and has clearly been closed for years. The lawn is completely open where the steps are and is therefore a problem for anyone with a dog or young child. It is a beautiful cottage and a nice area, but we had problems with the tv mechanism and also 2 of the showers needed to be fixed. I have fed this information back to Sykes and have had a very poor response. Last time I looked the listing information had not been corrected.

    Hi Susan, thank you for your feedback. Please accept our apologies that you were not completely satisfied with your stay, we will ensure that the listing is updated to show that the village hotel is not currently in use. We will also take on board your comment about the garden and that it isn't fully enclosed and so could be a problem for some guests, again we will mention this on our listing. It was extremely unfortunate that the showers needed some maintenance whilst you were staying at the property but we did act on this as soon as we were notified. The TV mechanism issue was also resolved as soon as we received the report, due to the system needing a quick reset. Whilst we can only apologise for the inconvenience and make the changes on our listing, we do hope you enjoyed your stay . All the best. Property Owner

  • "Lovely, well maintained house in a beautiful location."

    Well equipped-except for a hairdryer, very frustrating! Listing should mention low door ways (anyone over 5’10 will need to stoop to get through many of the doors-we had quite a few bumped heads!) and half size dishwasher to be fully accurate. Loved the welcome hamper and Bramley toiletries.

  • "A very special property in a lovely location."

    Beautifully presented; excellent layout, extremely comfortable with thoughtful touches such as luxury bedding, towels and toiletries; starter pack of logs and cleaning materials. Lots of parking - ideal for when family members/friends are travelling from various parts of the country. Perfect for our get together for a special family celebration. My report of a couple of potential issues for future guests was responded to promptly and courteously. We had a real sense that the guests really did come first at this property. All in all, I can highly recommend a stay here.

  • "Beautiful cottage, layout and comfortable."

    A perfect base to host multiple friend gatherings. The features of the cottage were lovely. It was cosy and beautifully decorated. Great quality of bedding. The top garden was enclosed but if your staying here with dogs, be aware the drive way out the back of the property to get to the garden isn't. There was everything we needed in the kitchen, the fridge was a great size. Only down side was the size of the oven. It would have been nice to of had some festive decorations in the property. But it wasn't a deal breaker. The cottage was stunning, we loved our stay as well as all our friends and family. We would definitely return and already considering booking for 2024.

  • "Wow. This cottage is incredible!"

    Stunning little village location, beautiful property presented to such a high standard. We enjoyed 6 days here over Christmas and loved every moment, the dog particularly enjoyed the underfloor heating on the ground floor! Paul, the property manager was very helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to book again, only minor point would be that one side of the garden was not secure for pets so we had to keep the dog on the lead when letting her out.

  • "The property itself was excellent."

    The reason the review cannot be higher is that we spent the week without an oven/cooker. This meant extra expense and inconvenience for us

  • "Our stay at Enderley was magical, Teffont Evias is a truly unique and well worth the trip."

    The "cottage" has been refurbished to a very high standard, with attention to detail clearly part of the architect's brief. The housekeeping is well done and thoughtful - the welcome hamper a lovely touch. All six guests in our party found everything to be comfortable and well appointed, the kitchen is well equipped - if you cook you know how to pack accordingly. We explored the footpaths to the local pubs (Compasses and Black Dog - both friendly and with good food). Walkers' booklet directions were good, but we found our Ordinance Survey a more familiar guide. Thank you to the owners for opening-up your property and to the housekeeping team for ensuring the place is in tip-top condition. Highly recommended!

  • "We - four adults and two small children - had a lovely family week over Christmas at Enderly."

    The house is furnished to a very high standard and was extremely comfortable and relaxing to be in. Paul the caretaker was very helpful, and everyone we met outside who lived in the village was chatty and friendly. I'd definitely recommend this house to others.

  • "A beautifully restored listed cottage."

    Extremely clean & welcoming, (especially the welcome pack), comfortable beds & linen. Sumptuous towels! A well equipped kitchen, however a microwave would have been useful as we were self catering. There are a few small criticisms:1) the furniture in the lounge is very uncomfortable & the layout is not very cosy which spoils the rest of the cottage. 2) Extremely difficult for a second person to get in & out of bed in the 2nd ensuite bedroom on 1st floor because there is no room to do so at the side of the bed. It should be stated in the particulars that there is no downstairs toilet which affected one of our guests who is not so mobile & found it difficult going upstairs. But we would recommend the venue to our friends & would return to Enderley. Thank you

  • "Beautiful and peaceful cottage in a lovely village."

    Thoughtfully renovated so combines the pleasure of staying in a character building with modern comforts. Generous provisions of the basics: binbags, washing machine and dishwasher tablets etc. Lovely garden and seating area for when the sun is out. Fabulous walks literally on the doorstep, a stream to play Pooh sticks in just across the road, pubs a plenty. Very useful bus service to Tisbury and Salisbury for those wanting to use public transport. Highly recommended

  • "We had a lovely stay at Enderley and the property was clean and in a lovely little village."

    The comfort was slightly affected by the low beamed ceilings - our fault for not considering this as our guests were 6 foot and 6 foot 6 inches tall so they had to stoop a lot! Might be worth mentioning this on the information just to alert future visitors. Only other thing to mention is that the walks from the village in our opinion were a little bit difficult due to busy roads but by car within a short drive there are so many lovely walks, villages and places of interest to visit There are also numerous extremely good places to eat within a short drive as well. overall - a great holiday cottage

  • "We had a superb time at Enderley - it's a wonderful property and a lot of care has clearly gone into the restoration to make this a superb place to stay."

    It would be helpful for future guest to provide wardrobes in the bedrooms; we didn't really want to live from our suitcases for a week. There are some small drawers which did not provide enough storage, but drawers are also not always suitable. Also, a microwave is needed. Finally, I need to report that the hot tap was starting to drip in the bathroom attached to the blue bedroom. For future guests, I would recommend taking plenty of dishwasher pods, as it is a slim size, so for 6 guests we were running it sometimes twice a day. If you have a shaver or electric toothbrush, take a plug adapter as there is no shaver socket. These are very minor points though! The house and location are stunning, and we truly enjoyed our stay! Thank you!

    Thanks for your feedback its important to us. Sykes and the owner have been in conversation to discuss what improvements can be made to allow guests the best experience. Its pleasing to read you had a great time and we hope to see you again! Property Owner

  • "Overall the cottage had great fittings and furniture, the kitchen was well supplied."

    The amenities were excellent, such as the bathrooms, showers etc. We loved to sit out on the terrace and play with the kids in the garden. The hand cream and hand wash was a lovely touch as was the welcome basket. We felt the house additional items such as a dust pan & brush or general sweeping brush. Somewhere to hang & dry wet clothes from washing machine, also an iron. But other than that it was well equipped.

    Thank you for your feedback. Sykes and the property manager are working together to try and make additions where they can. We are pleased to see you had a enjoyable time and hope to see you again, regards Sykes cottages! Property Owner

Resting in the small village of Teffont Evias, near Fovant, is this grade two listed property, Enderley.

Set over three floors and sleeping up to eight guests, Enderley is a restored and impressive cottage for your next getaway to Wiltshire, in the heart of Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within easy reach of Salisbury.

Three off-road parking spots greet you to the property before you enter through the front door, on your right there is an outstanding living room with ample sofa space for all your loved ones to join together in front of the TV and woodburning stove, and on your left there is a grand kitchen/diner, certain to entice any budding chefs into cooking a homestyle meal for all to enjoy around the table, with the feature fireplace and window seats close by.

Upstairs there is a super-king-size room with an en-suite, boasting a gorgeous freestanding bath, then a double room also with an en-suite bathroom to soak in after a long day, and for the other guests, when the evening draws to a close you climb the cast iron spiral staircase to the second floor, where the traditional beams of the property are kept and the two king-size rooms make a homely setting.

Outside, there is a rear garden with cobblestone and furniture to embrace those summer evenings and just a few steps up is a lawn area with breath-taking views of the countryside and surrounding villages.

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!

The property has a good housekeeping bond of £250 in place.
