Calne, Wiltshire Cottages
Cottage-on-the-Green (green painted front door on right in exterior picture) is tucked away in a peaceful setting overlooking the Green in the heart of Calne, the centre of which is just two minutes walk away with all its amenities.

Built in the 1800s, Cottage-on-the-Green stands next to the owners' house and is completely self-contained with its own entrance at the front of the cottage.

Calne is an historic market town and a good touring base and itself has its fair share of ancient buildings a number of them situated round the picturesque Green and close to Calne's 12th century church. The town also has a good range of shops, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants.
Within a 10 mile radius are the prehistoric monuments of Avebury Stone Circle, Silbury Hill & West Kennet Longbarrow, several "White Horses" carved out of chalk on the North Wiltshire Downs, the National Trust village of Lacock and the Kennet & Avon Canal great for narrow boat trips.
A little further away but still within easy driving distance are historic market towns of Marlborough, Devizes and Bradford-on-Avon, the Georgian city of Bath.

"We were delightfully surprised at the quality of this little gem of a cottage. Situated on a busy but beautiful green in Calne. We had no problem parking near by, just across the little road. The cottage was spotless and all in good working order. A big and well equipped kitchen. The sitting room was cosy but comfortable. Upstairs to the bathroom which was well thought out, modern and spotless (here is my only two lesser comments both in the bathroom: as I have arthritis in my hands I found the taps a bit tricky to operate and we live in Holland where shower pressure is excellent, we found the shower lacking a bit of pressure, both luxury problems when it comes down to it). Then we come to the beautiful and luxurious bedroom. A gorgeous bed with fresh, white, quality bed linen. The bed was perfect for us, slightly on the soft side which is exactly how we like it. We both are fussy sleepers, however we slept extremely well here. Cara and her husband were very helpful and eager to assist. We would recommend the Talbot Inn for nice pub food. Unfortunately we would give the White Heart a miss next time. We visit Wiltshire quite often to see friends and family and we hope to book another stay in the Cottage-on-the-Green soon."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2016-05-02
"Excellent property, very well equipped and ideal location for our winter stay when it was fairly wet and grey! Co-op a handy 2 minute walk from a quiet and lovely location on the green. So many great places to visit and walk within a short distance (15 to 20 minutes) - and beautiful Bath a short train journey away. The welcoming owners live next door and we cannot honestly find anything to suggest that would improve this small and lovely cottage. Warm, cosy, modern, well equipped with everything we needed and a really comfortable bed with a soft duvet to snuggle under!"Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2015-12-07
