“Simply wonderful”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We stayed here for a few days in early June and completely fell in love with the house and surroundings. It was all so quiet and peaceful with a large garden to relax in.
Helle and David were wonderful hosts and nothing was too much for them without being intrusive. Room and breakfast could not have been better! We felt like guests at a country house party!
We shall be back!

Dear Charlene,
How very lovely to hear from you and to read your delightful review. David is obviously chuffed that you loved his porridge and we both hope to see you back here a some stage. In the meantime, have a super sunny summer, it is SO wonderful here at the moment with the lavender in blooms and the bees buzzing.
Very warmest of wishes

We stayed two nights at this country hotel and were well looked after by our hosts David and Helle. They made us feel at home from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. We had our two dogs with us and unlike some places they were also well catered for. The breakfast was delicious with a good choice of hot and cold dishes and our room on the top floor of the building was spacious and comfortable. Would definitely book a return visit.

After a long trip on a busy motorway arriving at this lovely place is like coming home.
You immediately relax. Helle and David are a charming couple, who will do everything to make you feel welcome. The food is delicious, the beds comfortable - everything is just great :)

This was our second visit, as we enjoyed ourselves so much last time. I can see TOR becoming a little bit of a second home for us! David and Helle are very welcoming, and their breakfasts are very special. The rooms are very clean and warm and we slept extremely well. Most of all, David and Helle were so helpful in every way, making us feel relaxed, suggesting places to visit, booking restaurants for us and being really super with our kids. We'll be back!

On arrival, we are greeted at the gate by owners David and Helle with warm welcoming smiles after a long trip that day. The home is so inviting and is tucked away in a beautiful part of the world. Helle and David went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed into their home. Full of helpful information for our journey. The service was just as outstanding and nothing was too much trouble...Helle is an amazing cook too!! . Thank you again so much Helle, David and William for making my friends and I feel so welcomed. I am telling everyone about you!!

It can often be a minefield booking via the Internet and Search engines without any personal recommendations but the initial photograph found via the Wiltshire accommodation site stood out as an attractive venue in a quiet location. A bit farther from our point of visit but it did not disappoint in any form. As both light sleepers this was just perfect and enjoyed a great sleep on both nights. Our hosts Helle and David were charming and e mailed us well in advance to offer us extra services such as booking a table in the pub/restaurant just down the road on our arrival night which we gladly accepted, especially after the long drive from Ayrshire in Scotland.
The house was as nice as the picture and we were given the clever attic conversion so had complete privacy. Both the hosts were delightful and ensured our every need was met yet retaining privacy although personally not a concern.
Woud be the only B&B I would consider if ever down in Wiltshire again and I almost regard our hosts as good friends now.
Very reluctant to promote it here as I want to keep it to myself!
