We stayed in Thimble Cottage during our self-drive holiday in the UK. It was a fantastic start to our trip. Everything we needed was available in the cottage and it was in a great location.

Thimble Cottage is quaint but comfortable, ideally located with walking distance of Salisbury town centre and attractions like the Cathedral. We were met by the owner and given parking tickets for the duration of the stay. (Unfortunately we didn't put one on early enough the next morning and we got a ticket! So put it in the night before!)

About the neighbourhood
Salisbury's premier attraction is of course its 13th century cathedral built in the Early English style and supporting the tallest spire in England. Also well worth a visit are Mompesson House (National Trust), the Medieval Hall and the Salisbury Museum. The city has a flourishing theatre – the Salisbury Playhouse – and hosts an annual international arts festival in May.<BR> <BR>While Salisbury itself offers a wealth of visitor attractions, the surrounding area also boasts a huge range of sites to explore; top of the 'not to be missed' list are prehistoric Stonehenge, stately homes and gardens such as Wilton House, Longleat and Stourhead and the unique landscape of the New Forest National Park.
