    “We adored this beautiful, peaceful cottage.”

    The garden is so pretty- we loved sitting out in the evening over-looking it, drink in hand; when it rained we sat by the cozy fire (as much wood as you want provided at no extra cost). The cottage had all that we needed for a very comfortable week's stay. There was a very thoughtful gift of a jar of local honey and hand-made chocolates waiting for us when we arrived.

    The garden is so pretty- we loved sitting out in the evening over-looking it, drink in hand; when it rained we sat by the cozy fire (as much wood as you want provided at no extra cost). The cottage had all that we needed for a very comfortable week's stay. There was a very thoughtful gift of a jar of local honey and hand-made chocolates waiting for us when we arrived. The village is quaint and tranquil. We often enjoyed a walk out in the evening either around the village or to the local pub; in the day there are many beautiful walks- we particularly enjoyed walking to the watercress fields (and buying freshly picked watercress). The cottage is very conveniently located for many excursions- a week was not enough! On hot days we made our way to the stunning coastal villages which are only about 40 minutes away or at other times we spent our days walking in wildflower meadows or next to glorious, clear rivers by pubs and through villages. Salisbury is also a beautiful place to visit and a day at Stonehenge is a must! We are certain this would be a beautiful place to stay at any time of the year- so we will be back. We may even book the much bigger cottage next door (or both) and bring the whole family!!

The property

Situated in the grounds of the historic, Grade II listed King's Old Rectory, North Cottage (one of two superb holiday cottages at this location) offers guests the opportunity to stay somewhere quite exceptional.

Situated deep in the heart of South Wiltshire's magnificent Chalke Valley, where the sparkling River Ebble flows towards the cathedral city of Salisbury, a stay at this outstanding cottage will definitely live on in the memory.

Recently the property has undergone a painstaking and no-expense-spared refurbishment, where the owners have ensured the period features are mixed with modern touches, to create a truly beautiful holiday home.

We love the understated taste and style that are evident throughout the interiors.

The Old Rectory was once handed over to Henry VI as part of the endowment of the newly founded King's College Cambridge.

Centuries later, in the 1900s, the house was visited by many well-known literary figures of the time including the poet laureate, Robert Bridges and the author Thomas Hardy.

The Hollywood actress, Greta Garbo is said to have been photographed by Sir Cecil Beaton sitting on the bridge over the Ebble in the Rectory's garden!Please note: The cottages can be reserved individually with their own private entrances and gardens but if booked jointly they are perfect for larger groups of up to ten guests who will be able to make use of South Cottage's large, convivial dining area.
