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 that is quite exceptional. Situated deep in the heart South Wiltshire's highly sought after Chalke Valley, where the sparkling River Ebble flows towards the cathedral city of Salisbury, this outstanding cottage is certainly well worth a vist. 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.

En suite shower room/wc with big walk-in cubicle and 'monsoon' shower.

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, bridle ways 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.

"What a lovely cottage and so well set up with everything you need. Provided a great base for exploring Wiltshire and Dorset. "

"We heartily endorse all the positive comments about the comforts of King’s Cottage North. The week has passed all too quickly - we have seen lots, enjoyed some breathtaking walks and still feel that there will be lots to do when we come back again - hopefully very soon. "
Star Star Star Star Star Sarah, Paul and Pivca
"Comfortable and peaceful cottage - we thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Walked miles of beautiful countryside and met hardly a soul - what a contrast to the overcrowded Thames Valley! Nice to be able to settle back at the cottage in the evenings with the warming glow of the wood burner stove. Thank you! Peter, Ruth and Samson the Labrador"
