The property

Tucked away behind mature hedges and approached via a wooden footbridge, Foley's Cottage is every inch the quintessential English country cottage - thatched, detached, tucked away on a quiet lane, impossibly cute and surrounded by a delightful garden.

Unsurprisingly we fell in love with the cottage when we visited and are sure you will too!

Inside the cottage is cosy and peaceful yet it is full of traditional charms which give it a lovely, historic feeling.

The colours are restful and muted and with the added attraction of good quality furnishings, you can't help but feel right at home.

A stroll to the top of the grounds is rewarded by sweeping views of the surrounding downs.

In the orchard you'll find the well-appointed summerhouse providing a wonderfully peaceful haven for relaxing after a day's activities in this outstanding area, perhaps before taking a short stroll to the famous Dove Inn and restaurant just below.Its instant chocolate box visual appeal is obvious and we'd imagine you'll enjoy it as much as we did.

Foley's Cottage has been awarded 4 stars (Gold Award) by Visit England.

About the location


Frome 7.6 miles

The delightful Wiltshire market town of Warminster can be found to the south west of Salisbury Plain, at the head of the lush Wylye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Well known for its military connections, the old charm of the town centre has been preserved, where you can still find quaint houses and inns built from the local Warminster stone. Just a two scenic walk away there are lovely walks in abundance, whilst no visit to this area would be complete without exploring the stunning house, gardens and safari park at Longleat. Warminster boasts three supermarkets, many restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, several antique shops, a museum, a theatre, a magnificent park with a lake, skatepark, tennis courts and a nature reserve, Smallbrook Meadows can be accessed on foot, starting with just a short stroll. The award-winning Warminster Maltings who still malt barley the traditional way for the beer industry, do occasional tours for visitors and cream teas in Summer. Alternatively, visits to the magnificent cities of Bath and Salisbury, or Stourhead, National Trust and Stonehenge, British Heritage are not to be missed. This lovely area is full of surprises, providing a great base for your excursions.
