The cottage itself is fairly small but very well presented and equipped. It has been immaculately renovated and sits amidst stunning countryside in the quiet village of Broad Chalke.

We stayed in Kings Cottage North whilst waiting for our new house we were buying, to be completed. The cottage is set in delightful grounds which are beautifully maintained. The cottage itself is fairly small but very well presented and equipped. It has been immaculately renovated and sits amidst stunning countryside in the quiet village of Broad Chalke. It is in walking distance of the local pub, the Queens Head, and also the local and thriving local community run shop. It is only nine miles from Salisbury centre but has access to wonderful cycling and walking country. It is also on a local bus route between Shaftesbury and Salisbury. Next door is King's Cottage South which is much larger with four bedrooms so together the two cottages would make a wonderful destination for a large group weekend away, or a family celebration. Peace and quiet, with lots to do and see, but a hideaway if gentle relaxation is your objective.

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.
