What a lovely place! We stayed here as visiting family nearby and it was perfect. Beautifully presented, and clean with lots of nice touches and helpful provisions included. E.g. iron, fans (it was very warm weather) torches by the door, games, local guide books/leaflets and information from the owners. The owners were kind enough to let us check in early as we were able to contact them directly and we got a friendly greeting and brief tour of the house when we arrived. Good parking for 1 car off the road and outside sitting area for nicer days/evenings. The village seems quiet but there are a few pubs/restaurants and takeaways nearby, a co-op and spar for groceries and a few other shops too. Would highly recommend, we will be back.
Lovely stay in quaint and compact cottage. Nice and cosy with easy access to Stonehenge and Avebury.
My daughter and I stayed in The Byre whilst visiting Stonehenge, the museums and Salisbury Cathedral.
We loved the place. It's pretty, spotlessly clean, stylishly furnished and the beds and sofa are comfortable. The water is hot and the towels are big, fluffy and smell lovely.
We adored the little outdoor area and ate a couple of meals out there when the weather permitted.
Barbara, Maggy and Bob made us feel welcome and were on hand if we needed them.
We spent 5 nights at The Byre over the Easter holiday and it was absolutely lovely. Our hosts made sure all our needs were met and we appreciated all the little, personal touches throughout the cottage. The space is very well maintained and the outside courtyard was in bloom with beautiful spring flowers.
Pewsey is a lovely little town and was very convenient for our travels throughout the countryside (Avebury, Oxford, the Cotswolds). We hope to return one day!
The Byre is a self-contained, two-bedroom unit which was originally the cow barn adjacent to an 18th century thatched farmhouse. The conversion is luxurious, if a little cosy, with two bedrooms, one double and one with two twin beds. The kitchen is very well equipped if compact. The wooden floors and exposed beams create a rustic feel. Linens, towels and furniture are all top of the line. The rooms are all on the ground level adjacent to the parking area, which is shared with the farmhouse.
Pewsey is an idyllic village with several pubs, restaurants, local supermarkets and the railway station all in walking distance. The railway station is on a main line with good connections to London, Bath (both less than an hour), and Heathrow and Gatwick airports (1 ½ - 2 hours). There is a local bus service for exploring the local area such as Marlborough, Salisbury, Winchester and the ancient stone circles at Avebury and Stonehenge. It’s also a great area for getting around by bike. The owners live on site in the thatched farmhouse and are very helpful. The entrance to the parking are can be slightly hard to spot depending on the direction you are coming from.
Recently renovated, The Byre has one double bedroom and one twin. The kitchen is small but does have a fridge oven, microwave and dishwasher. Free wifi. The outside space is very pleasant.

My friend booked The Byre since it's close to Devizes to visit family. The place was more than we expected. Very well appointed 2-bedroom cottage with all the amenities needed. Beds were very comfy with all-white soft sheets. Bathroom was spacious and white bath towels were thick and luxurious. Barbara even gave us a jug of milk & bottle of jam. We wanted to extend our stay but they're fully booked. Our hosts are beautiful people and made us all feel welcomed and right at home. The Byre is a gem!
