“Excellent retreat”
Reviewed 8 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the cottage far exceeded our expectations and we felt really at home and relaxed and enjoyed the company of the rabbits and alpacas. Scott our son fell in love with the rabbits and wanted to take them home to America!!!!Nikki was a fabulous host, greeting us on our arrival, attending to all our needs during our stay and saying goodbye on our departure.
The cottage is set in idyllic surroundings and very handy to the town of Marlborough. We felt it was a home away from home.

Reviewed 4 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This was a great place to stay. Cottage was lovely and clean and plenty of room. Kids loved the garden, rabbits and alpacas. Nicola was very helpful and made us feel at home. We would love to stay again.

“Perfect, family friendly hide away”
Reviewed 22 March 2017 for a stay in October 2016

This is a property which I want to tell everyone about yet part of me wants to keep it a secret! A fabulous, gated location giving peace of mind in allowing freedom to run around for the kids. This has got to be my favourite holiday rental property - one where I would be quite willing to live in permanently! An hour from many attractions and areas of interest - we visited Salisbury, Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, Longleat and Paulton's Park to name a few. For us this was a perfect base from which to explore. The property itself is perfect - throw in the Alpacas, wild rabbits and the neighbouring horses and you have somewhere truly special.

“Ideal location close to Marlborough town”
Reviewed 23 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Having read the great reviews about Garden Cottage, we decided to book and were not disappointed. The house is warm, spotlessly clean and in a great location. Nikki was very welcoming and thoughtful. We will be booking again for another jaunt to this wonderful, charming house.

“Oasis in Oare”
Reviewed 20 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Such a beautiful hideaway in the heart of Wiltshire! We received a very warm welcome from Nikki and were introduced to a delightfully quirky yet modern living space which was luxurious and comfortable. We had an open fire, duck feathered pillows, excellent Wi Fi huge sofas to lounge in and a kitchen filled with every utensil that was needed. Private and secure location with views onto woodland with Owls at night, not to mention the morning welcome from the friendly alpacas. This was a beautiful treasure find and we hope to return in the summer to sit in the sunshine in the beautiful conservatory. Perfect location to explore the charms of Wiltshire. Thank you Nikki for a lovely stay.

“Peace and tranquillity”
Reviewed 20 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I stayed in this beautiful cottage with my sons and family recently we were delighted with our choice of accommodation.
The owner had left us all the essentials to get us warm and settled it was nice to have these little extras.
The house was spotless and very well decorated bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable .
The gardens were lovely and in the fenced area we had about seven alpacas they were so cute I took photos of them to show my grandchildren.
We will most definitely be staying here again can't wait.
