“Just Great”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

From the moment we arrived, we felt as though we were guests of the family. We were greeted by Deborah and, after being shown to our beautifully decorated room, we shared coffee and freshly baked caked with Deborah and James in the farmhouse kitchen. The room was very large, light and airy, with wonderful views over the Wiltshire farmland - there was even a bluebell wood to visit! The bathroom was ideal, large and with a separate shower (plenty of water pressure here) in addition to the bath. There was a good range of quality toiletries provided. Not only was there a good range of reading matter on the area provided, but the fruit, chocolate, biscuits, beer and wine were also very much appreciated. Breakfast was served at the table in the kitchen, with plenty of friendly talk while our selection from the menu was prepared on the Aga. Nothing was a problem for Deborah and James, and we were sorry to leave after three glorious nights - we had been made to feel as though we were friends who had come to stay, not paying guests. Thoroughly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone.

Room Tip: A must place to stay.

After a very long drive of about 4 hours I pulled up to Poulton Grange and was met at the door by Deborah who offered me a slice of cake and a coffee which was so welcoming and refreshing. I must admit it was hard to feel like a paying customer and more like a guest they had invilted into their home. The family is fantastic and was lovely to chat to James as well about the lack of cows on the farm :-)

The room blew me away i have never stayed somewhere that big and the bathroom has the wow factor, the shower is very powerful and you have a choice of head to use, the bath sadly i didn't get to use but next time i'll take advantage of that. The products in the bathroom leave you spoilt for choice everything and more is supplied.

The drinks tray was the biggest surprise as it had a bottle of beer, a bottle of wine, plenty of tea and coffee (not like the places that give you two cups if your lucky) and they even have filter coffee in bags which tasted amazing, biscuits where nice on the drive home too :-)

Room had everything i needed including TV, free wifi, bathrodes, huge comfy bed, pillow spray which i thought was a very nice touch and plenty of cupboard and draw space. Temperature was perfect and was shown how to change this if needed, no light or noise polution i actually felt i had gone blind when i put the lights out and the room was plunged into darkness. sleep was amazing and to be honest i didn't want to get up in the morning.

Breakfast was massive with lots of choice and you can preorder so you get exactly what you want. I had the works bacon, sausage, eggs, tomatos, mushrooms, beans, fried bread and black pudding and well i was stuffed. All the food is of a very high quality and it shows when you get good thick bacon. There is also yoghurt, cereal and toast but i was more than happy with the cooked breakfast on its own and a nice orange juice and coffee.

If you are in the area you must stay here to experience what all other B&B's should be doing, warm, welcoming and luxery through and through. Will certainly book again if they will have me.

Everything all the other reviewers have raved about we endorse without reservation! James and Deborah have the winning formula buttoned up and will undoubtedly keep it that way because above all THEY CARE! The room was fabulous, the setting heavenly, the peacefulness of the surroundings uplifting, but what really did it for us was the way we felt welcomed from the moment we arrived and for every moment afterwards until we left. Their house was our house, and what a wonderful house it is. Look no further - if you have reason to stay in the area, this is where you should go.....and if you don't have a reason to be in the Marlborough area, invent one so you can find out what all the fuss is about.

My wife and I stayed for a weekend at Poulton Lodge for our visit to Marlborough for a 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration.
The lodge is situated on a working farm a short distance from the town centre. The lodge is down a mile long drive close to the modern farmhouse where Deborah & James also offer B & B.
The lodge itself was absolutely first class - spotlessly clean, extremely well appointed and all in all very comfortable. We were provided with a welcome pack that took care of all the essentials. Deborah also brought us a homemade cake.
We were quite lucky with the weather so were able to sit on the verandah - one upstairs, one on the ground floor, and watch the hares in the field opposite. The swallows were less keen to see us as they were nesting in the eaves.
There is an extensive garden attached to the Lodge with swings etc for children.
Provided you are happy with being a little remote an ideal setting for breaks.
A great place run by a very friendly couple.

We agree with all other reviews. Spotlessly clean luxury. Deborah promised us hares in the field outside our bedroom window, but we can't blame her when they didn't turn up ! If you have the slighest interest in matters farming and/or countryside, just start a conversation with James. He's both knowledgeable and entertaining. Highly recommended.

I endorse everything that has been written; this b&b is the best ever. Bedrooms/en suite spacious, comfortable and beautifully furnished. Breakfast choice superb.
Cannot be faulted. In particular the natural warmth and friendliness of Deborah, James and the girls make Poulton Grange a very special place.

I can heartily recommend staying at Poulton Grange. James and Deborah are delightful hosts and although we only stayed 2 nights, we came away feeling we'd had a proper holiday. The house is spacious, spotlessly clean and tastefully furnished; and they've thought of every little detail to make your stay relaxing and luxurious. I accidentally left behind some toiletries which Deborah kindly posted straight back to me. When we left we felt we were saying goodbye to friends.

Room Tip: There are two bedrooms - both very light and spacious with extensive views of rolling farmland.
