Property Information

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.

Map & Local Information

Broadchalke is a beautiful village nestled under the impressive downland of Cranborne Chase lying between Shaftesbury and Salisbury. Forming part of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the surrounding countryside can justly claim to be some of the finest in southern England. Walkers, riders and cyclists are particularly well served by the multitude of footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes which run along the valley while a walk up to the old Ox Drove on the chalk ridge above will be richly rewarded by the sweeping views across the surrounding downland as far as the Dorset coast in the distance.

The area is far from remote and is located within easy driving distance are a whole host of visitor attractions - Wilton House, Stonehenge, Longleat, Stourhead, the cathedral city of Salisbury and the World Heritage city of Bath.

The New Forest
is only about 20 minutes away while Dorset's Jurassic coastline is a must for a day's excursion. More locally there are many picture-book villages with fine houses, ancient churches and good country pubs to discover.
