Had a very enjoyable weeks stay in Stable Cottage, it was very quiet, relaxing and very much a fantastic location. Amenities included a private patio area, a fully working sauna (payment required, but at Â£2 a go, more than reasonable). A full size snooker table and an entire 350 acre working farm to discover !. Pets are welcome and they are able to walk the farm with you (even welcome in the local Somerford arms pub !), I would recommend this place for those looking to get away from it all, but not too remote as Malmesbury village is only 3 miles away. All in all we enjoyed our stay, and if you're looking for rustic, this is it.

About the location
Chippenham 11 miles; Cirencester 13 miles; Bath 23 miles.
Dating back to the Iron Age and reputedly the oldest borough in England, the pretty market town of Malmesbury is located on a hilltop in the southern Cotswolds. Malmesbury is steeped in history and offers visitors over 400 listed buildings, a 15th century Market Cross, a ruined 7th century Benedictine abbey, an annual carnival and many independent shops, cafes and traditional pubs. Abbey House Gardens, home to 'The Naked Gardeners' can also be found in Malmesbury (Note: The gardeners are clothed during normal opening hours) and the annual Womad Music Festival is close by at Charlton Park. The area offers many country houses, including Rodmarton Manor and Gardens, and Chavenage House, a fine example of a Cotswold manor unchanged for 400 years. Just a short drive away is The Cotswold Water Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering 40 square miles and offering a wide range of activities, including boating, waterskiing, fishing, cycling, golf and horse riding, plus Bath, Cirencester and Tetbury are all within easy reach and well worth a visit.
Note: There is a good housekeeping bond of £100 when booking 2 or more properties. Note: The swimming pool is only available in the summer, and please bring your own pool towels.
