“beautiful property in idyllic setting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

A beautiful thatched property right next door to a historic thatched pub! Set in a village of thatched properties down by a canal and surrounded by woods & green fields. It's just how we expected an idyllic English countryside setting to be. The room was very clean & comfortable. The area was quiet, as you would expect, and we had a great night's sleep. Our hosts were welcoming and friendly and provided one of the best home cooked breakfasts i've had as a guest anywhere. A great place to spend a night if you are touring the beautiful south west of England.

This is the second time we have stayed with Trish and Max. You are welcomed into their home and experience a relaxed and very comfortable stay. You are made to feel you are part of the household and the breakfast is fabulous. The village is wonderful for walking and the canal towpath is just five minutes away. Marlborough with its shops and restaurants is also an attraction for us and we always fit a day out there as part of our trip.

Room Tip: We have stayed in both bedrooms and they are equally good. Both quiet with lovely view of the villag...

We have just stayed for one night at The Finches, in the very pretty village of Wootton Rivers.
As others have said, a lovely thatched property kept by a very nice couple. Warm and comfortable bedroom, good parking in their grounds, and a really excellent breakfast. Refreshing to have Bach playing, getting the day off to a good start.

Perfect place for a stop over ,lovely friendly couple very welcoming. Room very clean and lots of cupboard space. Lovely old thatched property so the stairs would be a problem for anyone elderly or disabled, but apart from that a good place to stay , even has a good pub next door with a large bar menu.

My husband and I stayed at The Finches for 4 nights at the beginning of June. Wootton Rivers is the prettiest little village and the lovely pub next door the perfect place for an enjoyable meal. When we arrived Trish and Max were so friendly and welcoming. Trish went straight over to the pub and made a reservation for us for dinner. Our room was just perfect with everything to make our stay one to remember. Our breakfast each morning was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed some great days out in Bath, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Marlborough and Aylesbury. It is the perfect place to stay to explore the surrounding countryside. Trish and Max are the perfect hosts.

We were cycling route 4 and planned to stay overnight at the Finches. A combination of the heat and multiple punctures plus a misscalculation of the distace meant we were very late arriving. Patricia went over to the pub and ordered dinner for us while we got showered. Over and above theservice we expected. Beds were comfortable and the shower was goos and powerful. All in all a very pleasant stay and highly recommended. Breakfast was good too.
