    There was not everything mentioned on what was available like no washing machine no barbecue we had to borrow owners after they cleaned it The cooker was very dirty inside dead flys on window ledges we think whole kitchen is in need of a make over very dated old Overall we did not think this was value for money The WiFi was so slow often did not work so difficult to find places to visit. There was no welcome pack And no information folder to information to emergency number neared shop etc . Therefore we felt we could not put any comment in visitor book as we only had negative comments. Overall a disappointing property.

    Quiet location, a bit off the beaten track. Friendly owners on site. Pub and childrens' play park within 15 minute walk, along a country lane. Nearest shop 10 minute drive away. Large barn conversion, plenty of room for the 3 of us. The main downsides are; the sofa bed in the lounge was uncomfortable, my husband used a spare duvet as an extra matress topper. The other main downside was the kitchen had so many pieces of cookware (saucepans, casserole dishes etc), there was no cupboard space to store any food. There was no mobile phone signal in the area of the barn, but we used the free Wifi to send messages via Facebook. Some people may be bothered by the cobwebs in the barn, but it is a country location.

    The cottage is very quiet and in a secluded place. We were very comfortable, and well provided for. An excellent and restful week's holiday. I would think it to be an ideal place for a dog to be included.

    The location was excellent and the general area lovely with lots of things to visit and many walks. The cottage was well provided with information and maps. The cottage was attractive and the main living area large and pleasant. The standard of cleanliness was good. Basic furniture was fine but not luxurious and there was no chair in the bedroom on which to put things. The wet room was just that - wet! The electric shower was adequate but like all electric showers, water flow was a bit thin. I had to buy floor cloths to wipe the floor after showers because the slope of the floor meant the water tended to by-pass the drain. The heating system was very good but could have done with being on the clock - we had to get up to put it on each morning. We would have preferred to have costs of oil and electricity included in the rent. The cottage had some basics in stock (cleaning stuff) but it was quite haphazard. We had to buy foil, clingfilm, dishcloths, tissues, kitchen roll etc. The supply of towels was meagre - no extra hand towel for the bathroom or kitchen and the bath towels were small. Mobile phone signal was minimal (but that seemed to be the case everywhere in the area!) and Wi-Fi was ok for emails though it dropped out a couple of times. Overall, we felt this cottage had great potential but was ultimately a bit disappointing and not up to the standards we have enjoyed elsewhere at the same price.

    Very nice cottage, we had a lovely time ! However, the view was not as nice as expected and the wet room was a big disappointment.

    Lovely peaceful holiday and our dog loved it too! Not overly struck on the wet room but that is just personal preference. Few little things - could do with a door mat in front of the patio doors for wet paws, loo seat was a bit wobbly and the mattress could do with replacing - but that is nit picking! Would definitely stay here again if we get the chance - we had a great time!

    Nice little cottage on a quiet farm with a few sheep nearby. Living area in the cottage was very open and spacious. We were using the place as a base to explore potential places to live. Well equipped kitchen. We found that the sofa wasn’t particularly what we were used to and we found it a little uncomfortable. Great wood burner. The only reason we wouldn’t stay here again is because we never stay in the same place more than once.

    Beautiful location. Barn facing the sunrise. Watching hares in the fields and birds in the nearby trees. Well equipped kitchen and cosy log fire. A few minutes from Malmesbury with some interesting shops and the abbey.

    Great cosy cottage, the description of location is a little bit misleading as it mentions that it is a short drive to Stone Henge but infact is over an hour drive. Other than that it was lovely and a perfect get away, we all loved it :)

    Lovely place, beautiful surroundings, welcoming host, very relaxing. Only slight concerns were that the Carthouse was a little stuffy on arrival and taking meter readings was confusing.
