We stayed in the family room which was a nice size and very clean. Small en suite bathroom. Tea and coffee in room which we made use of on arrival by making ourselves a hot drink after travelling. Breakfast was nice.

We stayed last weekend ( 5/6 September). Lovely room, comfy bed and great breakfast. What more could you want? Actually one thing I could have wanted was a bit of spare time to sit in that lovely garden - still maybe next time! B & B is really easy to find and very handy for things like Longleat and Stonehenge....

I wish my weekend visit hadn't been so short.! Amazing b & b, one of the most beautiful rooms I've ever slept in. Wonderfully carved wooden bed, very comfortable with the lightest of duvets - they can be so very heavy at times! Very quiet bedroom, except for delightful birdsong. I hope I may return very soon. The owners were...

Beautiful B&B - close to Salisbury, Old Sarum and Stonehenge, including other attractions. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. The breakfast and service was excellent and the local pub the Swan hosts a delicious dinner. Free and consistent wifi was much appreciated after having only limited access in London. Ask Pauline about the walk along the Roman road to Wilton....

We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting the local sites of Stonehenge, Avebury, Sarum and West Kennet Long Barrow, all of which are within a reasonably short drive from the guest house. The guest house is located in a quiet village but there are two pubs within walking distance (one within the village itself and one just outside) both...
