Quiet, warm, comfortable and nestled amidst a beautiful garden setting. We appreciated Fenella's efficiency with booking, her help with guiding us to the property when we phoned and warm welcome on arrival. The well equipped kitchen provided us with the option of some home cooked meals and Honey Street Wharf café provided the perfect lunch and afternoon tea stop. This was undoubtedly one of the best of our accommodation options in 7 weeks of UK travel. The well concealed washing machine was important to us, as was the large bed. We appreciated the use of local maps and tourist info provided by the hosts. The ambiance of the cottage is peaceful and calm. Perfect in every way!
This cottage is the best we've stayed in for a perfect quiet getaway. Secluded and private, it's hidden away in a bountiful garden of the last property on a dead-end country road. No noise, no light pollution, your own garden and car parking spot... Everything you could want. We were warmly welcomed by Fenella, despite us being an hour later than planned while touring nearby Avebury on our first day (definitely visit here: West Kennet Long Barrow was especially amazing). She showed us everything necessary in the property, then left us with a complimentary bottle of wine, fresh flowers and lemon drizzle cake to enjoy! The cottage was so impressive, beautifully built and immaculately tidy. The super kingsize bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The shower was amazing (I love good pressure and heat with showers!) and there was a big bath stocked with lovely oils. The kitchen was fully equipped and spacious, and we enjoyed cooking two dinners here during our 3 night stay with no problems. We ate out the first night at the Indian in Pewsey, where the service was unbelievable and the food delicious.
The end of the road beside the property becomes a footpath that leads to the beautiful Kennet & Avon Canal. A walk from Ladies' Bridge is highly recommended to see all the colourful longboats and visit one of the pubs along the way, like The Waterfront Bar & Bistro and The Golden Swan. We were so busy we didn't get to the local pubs Seven Stars, Woodbridge Inn or Barge Inn (apparently for crop circle enthusiasts), so can't comment on those, nor the garden centre - though Fenella gives great tips on getting the fry-up breakfast! If you like your ales, there's a fab little place in Pewsey called "The Shed Alehouse" serving local microbrewery ciders & ales.
But the main reason we stayed was for all the ancient sites to visit in Wiltshire, which All Saints Cottage was ideally situated for and we'd love to return some day just to enjoy the tranquility of the cottage itself, which was the real surprise highlight. We enjoyed Marlborough and Devizes, both lovely market towns very close by, and drove 45mins to walk part of The Ridgeway into Oxfordshire to visit Wayland's Smithy (another ancient longbarrow) and The Uxbridge Castle & White Horse. But Pewsey's own White Horse is only a few miles from the cottage, which we climbed up to on our first day for truly outstanding views across Salisbury Plains.
All in all, you can cram in SO much breathtaking history and scenery by using All Saints Cottage as a base, while itself is pure luxury and self-sufficiency. Thanks so much to Fenella and family! We'll be back to enjoy it again.
This is one brilliant cottage set within the gardens of the old church. Fenella gave us a great welcome and showed us round the great cottage with everything you needed. We also had some cake, flowers, milk and wine waiting for us. This was a great base for seeing Wiltshire on our weeks holiday. Wifi provided, huge comfy bed and great to get back to each night.
Hidden in the trees of Wiltshire this complete, private, and quiet property was a stand out in our 5weeks travel of southern England. Superior in all aspects. Comfortable in all aspects. Nothing was over looked by the helpful owner. Location is excellent for all the sites of Wiltshire. Our seven days were only blighted by the English weather .
However it was a joy to return home each evening. Absolute tops.and value for money.
A stunning cottage in a beautifully tranquil part of Wiltshire. Fenella welcomed us warmly to our accommodation, with home made cake, wine and beautiful flowers. If you want a complete get away from it all location - this is it, although there is also WIFI if you need it. The bed was extremely comfortable, the TV including soundbar was excellent, and there were walks on our doorstep, with the Kennet and Avon canal only about a mile away for more beautiful walks. Without doubt the best accommodation we have stayed in - ever!
We spent a fantastic week in this lovely secluded cottage. The cottage is located on the edge of the property bordered by woodlands and fields. Our host, Fenella, was terrific and she has equipped the cottage to an exceptionally high standard. Highly recommended!
We booked very last minute which wasn't a problem at all, and had a sainsburys delivery arrive before we did which Fenella accepted and even put the cold stuff in the fridge for us.
The roads leading to the cottage can have some large puddles in the rain (but we were on a motorcycle so a car would be no problem!), but it was easy to find with the postcode in a satnav. Upon arrival we were made to feel very welcome straight away, Fenella told us everything we needed to know about the cottage (heating, water, check-out etc) but we were left to our own devices after that which was lovely.
The cottage itself was spotless and very well equipped, even with fresh flowers, cake and a lovely bottle of wine. It was lovely coming back to the clean warm house after a day of getting rained on while hiking!
We ate in the Seven Stars pub which is about 10 minutes walk away, the food was outstanding and we can recommend the Czech lager they have very highly! The people there were also very chatty and welcoming and we got some great recommendations of things to do during our stay from them.
Overall a perfect short break, wish we could have seen the bluebell woods behind the cottage in bloom but just a few weeks too early. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet location with easy access to some lovely countryside and walking spots.
