    “This is a really good cottage, everything is high quality and practical as well as attractive.”

    The courtyard garden is lovely, its a pleasure to sit outside when the sun shines. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped and the bathroom is luxurious. And it's in an outstanding location, quiet but very central. The stairs are very steep, as described. I would certainly return to Thimble Cottage

The property

Thimble Cottage is reputedly one of the oldest residential properties in Salisbury - setting foot inside is really like stepping back in time, yet it has all the modern features you need for your holiday.

Set in a quiet side road, this charming, Grade II listed, timber-framed, terraced cottage sits within easy walking distance of the Market Square which hosts the twice weekly Charter Market - the largest in England.

With plenty of character and original features, it is a really comfortable base from which to explore this delightful city as well as the countryside beyond.

About the location


Andover 17 miles; Southampton 23 miles

The medieval city of Salisbury is the jewel in Wiltshire's crown, dominated by the majestic 13th century Gothic cathedral. The cathedral offers 750 years of history including Britain's tallest spire, the world's best preserved original Magna Carta, and Europe's oldest working clock. The surrounding cathedral close, full of architectural gems, is bordered by the River Avon and ancient Chilmark stone walls. The city offers historic streets with charming half-timbered buildings, traditional pubs, characterful shops and a twice-weekly market. Or, stroll along the Town Path and take in the awe-inspiring views across the water meadows towards the cathedral. After dark, there's a thriving arts scene, including one of the country's leading repertory theatres, a lively arts centre, cinema and a wealth of independent restaurants. Should you want to explore further afield then a short drive from Salisbury takes you to Stonehenge, the National Trust's Stourhead House and gardens, majestic Wilton House, as well as the New Forest National Park, and the Hampshire and Dorset coasts. There's so much to see and do in Salisbury and surrounding area that your only concern will be finding the time to do it all!
