Comments from our visitors

My sister and I stayed in The Yeoman's House over Easter weekend with our three young children and had a fabulous time. The house is large and spacious and has an incredible history. The kids had an absolutely fantastic time both inside the house and running around the huge garden. With an acre to explore and a trampoline to bounce on they were never bored. The owners were very helpful, giving us lots of recommendations of local pubs and places of interest before we stayed.

Still talking about The Folly at Castlebridge one month on.... This place is a total home from home. We felt very privileged to stay here for a week over Christmas. The owners went out of their way to welcome us and to give us any help that we needed. It is unique, beautifully decorated, is very well stocked, and totally peaceful. If you are lucky enough to find this Folly available, I'd recommend you to grab it with both hands!!

Guest's review on TripAdvisor, 2 January 2015. 5 of 5 stars.

On return to Norway I would like to thank you for your good and swift follow-up during the booking process, and your well designed website was very useful. We very much enjoyed our Wiltshire countryside stay and do not hesitate to rate Beckford Cottage ***** on a scale to five.
