Property Information

Formerly the gardener's cottage to an historic moat house, The Moat Cottage lies within the grounds of the owners' house in a small village on the edge of Salisbury - a great place to experience both town and country. Tremendous care has been taken by the owners to preserve the original character and features of the cottage while at the same time, providing 21st century, 'state-of-the-art' accommodation with the comfort of guests truly at the centre of everything. As soon as you step inside you'll be charmed by the original brickwork, small pane windows, original internal shutters, and exposed beams and timberwork yet at the same time you'll be bowled over by all the up-to-date details such as under floor heating, top of the range kitchen and bathroom appliances, traditionally made George Smith furniture and Porta Romana lamps. You really won't want to leave at the end of your stay!
Outside there is plenty of room for al fresco dining with its rustic table mirroring the one in the dining area inside. There's even an outdoor lighting system to ensure the relaxed holiday mood extends well into the evening. A lovely place to escape with family and friends.

Map & Local Information

Just two miles to the south of the cathedral city of Salisbury, the ancient settlement of Britford nestles amidst the water meadows of the Avon Valley. For delicious local and regional produce, try the excellent farm shop in the village, just 100 yards from the cottage.

Salisbury itself is just a short drive, or 15 minute walk along the tow path if you're feeling fit, with its magnificent 13th century Cathedral and Cathedral Close, Charter market place and extensive range of shops, pubs, pavement cafes and restaurants. You'll also find a leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, theatre and arts centre.

If you want to experience the outdoors, then the northern edge of the New Forest National Park is around 15 minutes away by car or a little over half an hour's drive takes you to Christchurch on the Dorset coast.

The surrounding area also boasts a huge range of historic sites and family attractions to explore. Top of the 'not to be missed' list are prehistoric Stonehenge andstately homes and gardens such as Wilton House, Longleat and Stourhead.

"The house was just what we wanted; warm, simply furnished, quiet, comfortable."
Star Star Star Star Star Lane
"We booked Moat Cottage to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday because she loved living in the same cottage and Britford village when she was a child. It was wonderful - the cottage has been carefully extended to provide a modern kitchen and bathrooms yet retains the original cottage layout, features and charm. She was thrilled. We had lots of fun re-creating photos of our family at the cottage 70 years ago with our family today! We arrived late in the evening but the owners had ensured that the cottage was warm and fully prepared. The kitchen is very well equipped - we wanted for nothing. The garden is lovely and I imagine would be great for a barbecue on a summer's day with the kitchen open to the garden. Britford is still a beautiful and unspoilt village, the Saxon church is just along the lane and Robert's Farm Tea Shop just a short stroll away is also lovely. We felt as if we had stepped back in time by 100 years but with all the home comforts of today. Compliments to the owners for taking such care over everything."

"The Moat Cottage was fantastic; we all had such a great time and left with heavy hearts. If you could pass on our thanks to the owners I would be grateful. Fabulous cottage and we will definitely return."
