Pewsey, Wiltshire Cottages
One of three delightful cottages, The Old Cart Shed forms part of a development at Conygre Farm situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Pewsey Vale. Perfect for a rural getaway, this former farm building has been sympathetically converted into top-notch holiday accommodation.These really are cottages with bags of character.
Inside you'll find plenty of space to make use of - a lovely, bright living area, smashing bathrooms and cosy beds (there are two bedrooms on the ground floor for ease of access). Careful thought has gone into the look and style of the interior, mixing the traditional with the modern to elegant effect. Plus there's the added attraction of an integral indoor heated swimming pool, easily accessible from each cottage and, in the case of The Burrow or The Warren, without the need even to step outside.
The Old Cart Shed is ideal to rent alongside H129 - The Burrow and H130 - The Warren for larger groups or for several families wishing to holiday together, with dining for up to 21 in The Burrow's open plan living area. (Outside catering can be arranged). The Burrow and The Warren are at either end of an indoor walkway adjacent to the swimming pool and The Old Cart Shed adjoins The Warren.
Entrance from the courtyard into a hallway for coats, boots etc. Corridor with under-stairs Utility Area with washing machine.
Very light, open plan Living Room with two sofas, TV, DVD player, wood burning stove and French windows leading to the garden.
Dining Area with large, rectangular dining table seating eight.
Fitted Kitchen Area with electric oven, dishwasher and microwave.
Bedroom One with double bed.
Bedroom Two with zip and link beds offering a choice of super king size double (6ft) or twin beds.

Family Bathroom/WC with hand shower attachment to the bath.

Conygre Farm has 360 degree views of both sides of the local river valley and plenty of walks on its land. In the local area The Kennet & Avon Canal, just a mile away, offers narrow boat trips while the ancient Savernake Forest, (3 miles) is good for walks and picnics. The area is rich in prehistoric, archaeological sites such as Avebury, Stonehenge and Silbury Hill while the historic cities of Bath, Oxford and Salisbury are within an hour's drive. The nearest market town is Marlborough (7 miles) while nearby Pewsey has a main line rail link to London, good local shops and a supermarket.
"We have had a lovely time here. The accommodation was very comfortable and we found the kitchen to be very well equipped. The kids' highlight was definitely the pool. We can highly recommend Stourhead especially in Autumn! We can also recommend Marlborough High Street for a great shopping experience and The Tipple Inn served a delicious meal. Thank you so much for having us; we look forward to coming back. The cake and flowers were a lovely warm welcome!."The Davis family 2016-10-01
"We have just come back from a wonderful stay on Congyre Farm.We stayed in The Old Cart Shed which slept our party of 7 perfectly over Christmas week.This place is immaculate and the attention to detail is great. The pool is great and again immaculate. Loved this place!!"Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2015-01-09
"We have come back to The Burrow, The Warren and The Cart House every November for the last 7 years. As an extended family group of around 20 of all ages we love the interconnecting cottages and the kids love the indoor pool and games room. It is great that we can all eat together but have three separate lounges . The central location is ideal for family travelling from all directions. The cottages are always clean and well maintained and have everything you need."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2014-11-18
