“Lovely stay”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

Deborah and James very welcoming hosts.

Delicious cake and tea on arrival after a long journey drive on a Friday afternoon from Suffolk. No trouble in finding our way as driving direction given on email.

Beautiful house in the farm setting. Our room is luxurious, fantastic view. Breakfast was fantastic and the hosts were so attentive and flexible to accomodate our needs.

Only wish we could have stayed longer to do more walking and exploration around local area, as we came for our friend's wedding on Sat.

Would definitely return & highly recommended!

I would like to wage in on this 'TOP B&B NEAR MARLBOROUGH' debate.
Poulton Grange is absolute class. Hosts are knowledgeable and about as welcoming as they come, the accomodation is luxurious and the breakfast local and delicious. What's more, the litmus test was when I asked if we could bring our horses, who were duly and comfortably accomodated across the drive at extremely late notice.
I could not reccommend this lovely B&B more. I wish them all the best with their enterprise!

One sentence sums it up:

In over 30 years of travel to the UK this is by far the finest b&b I've ever stayed in. jm

We have just returned after spending 4 nights at Poulton Grange with friends who previously stayed there in January. If you are looking for luxurious accommodation in a tranquil setting, then this is the ideal location for you. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel so welcome by Deborah and James. Poulton Grange is a stunning house with beautifully appointed rooms/bathrooms - the attention to detail is second to none. We had a triple aspect window overlooking the downs with Marlborough in the distance - beautiful setting. The breakfasts provided are wonderul too, with a wide variety of choice.

Despite being in the midst of the busy harvesting season, Deborah and James took the time to show us the workings of the farm - nothing is too much trouble.

If you do choose Poulton Grange you will not be disappointed. It more than lives up to it's 5 star rating - we can't wait to make a return visit.

Can't really say anything different to the other reviewers. The house is in a peaceful, country setting, yet only a couple of miles from Marlborough. Our bedroom was spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. An oversized bed with wonderful linen. Modern bathroom with a great shower, large fluffy towels and special "smellies". Lots of extras - fresh fruit, flowers, wine, etc. in the room each day. Breakfast was superb - even if you didn't go for the full "heart attack on a plate". 5 star accommodation in every way. However, the thing that really made our trip special was the family - Deborah, James and the girls. So friendly, warm and funny - we really did feel like house guests rather than paying guests. At B&B's we normally find that we are either out and about or in our bedroom but we spent a lot of time drinking tea and chatting with the family in their kitchen. We were celebrating our Silver Wedding and Deborah arranged treats for us to make our stay extra special, including flowers and a card on the day. This place is a real find and we would definitely go back.

Deborah & James were delightful hosts. We chose their B&B because it was away from the hustle and bustle of touristy Marlborough. Their beautiful new home was in a lovely rural setting. Our room was as nice as home. We felt like we were staying with friends. Wonderful breakfasts. A most enjoyable experience.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay at Poulton Grange was. Deborah and James, the owners, have thought of everything possible to make sure that their guests have an extremely comfortable stay, and they make it possibly for the guests to get as involved as they want to with what's going on in the house or on the farm.

My son, who is 20, and I went to Wiltshire (from the U.S.) to see crop circles. I found Poulton Grange after googling around for hotels in Wiltshire. Within a couple hours of arriving, after settling in and enjoying a cup of tea, we were out in a field with Deborah, James, and one of their dogs (Tess), watching as they moved a herd of sheep from that field to another and then moved two rams into the field where the herd had been. My son had a ball running with the dogs at night. He'd have done more farm work had there been things for him to do when we were around.

The house itself is wonderful. The rooms are oversize and extremely comfortable. The place is cozy, luxurious, friendly, informal, warm. Deborah goes out of her way to take care of your needs -- when we came back from traipsing around muddy crop circles, she washed out clothes for us and dried them in front of the Aga. I use unsweetened soy milk each morning and she had it in the house when we arrived.

We recommend Poulton Grange with no reservations whatsoever. It really is a special place. Somehow Deborah and James have figured out how to make you feel like you're really at home, not like you're in the way in someone else's house. We hope to return next year for an even longer stay.
