Malmesbury, Cotswolds Cottages
Located on a 350 acre farm on the southern edgeof the Cotswolds, Stable Cottage is an attractive former farm building, carefully renovated to create a cute holiday property for two or three people. Converted from the former stable block, the property today is a simple, yet attractive home that we feel is ideal for those guests looking for a rural retreat, and still have access to some excellent facilities including an outdoor pool and tennis court. Inside many period features remain with good sized rooms throughout while outside the cottage has a private, south-facing terrace that overlooks the valley beyond.
Stable Cottage shares the site with four other properties sleeping up to 27 guests. See Orchard Cottage (H134), The Granary (H135), Bottom Barn (H136) and Cow Byre (H137).
All at ground floor level.
Oak beamed Living Room/Dining Room with sofa, armchair, TV and open log fire.
Newly fitted Kitchen with oven, microwave and dishwasher.
Bedroom One with double bed (4ft 6) with fitted wardrobes and oak beams.
Hall Annexe with extra single bed.
Family Bathroom with shower attachment to the bath.
Stable Cottage has its own private terrace and barbecue. There are also plenty of shared outdoor areas for guests and great walks right on the doorstep with breathtaking views across the farm and countryside beyond.
The open air swimming pool is available during the summer months. It is a shared pool and garden furniture around the pool is provided. There is also a traditional coal brick built barbeque situated just next to the pool so when the weather is nice a barbeque next to the pool is just heaven!

Maunditts Park Farm benefits from its superb location overlooking the beautiful Avon valley with magnificent views over rolling grassland, the Wiltshire Avon and beyond to the distant Marlborough Downs. Being just eight miles from the M4 motorway gives guests great access to London (about one and a half hours), Bath (30 minutes) and Oxford (around one hour).
Close by, you'll find plenty of historical, and architectural sites as well as places of outstanding beauty to visit including the Cotswold market town of Tetbury, charming Castle Combe, Lacock and Avebury (both National Trust.) plus the Roman town of Cirencester.
For family fun, there's Farmtastic Animal Farm near Chippenham and Bowood House and Gardens near Calne with its amazing adventure playground.
If it's local shops, pubs and restaurants you need, then the ancient, royal borough of Malmesbury is just two miles away.
"Had a very enjoyable weeks stay in Stable Cottage, it was very quiet, relaxing and very much a fantastic location. Amenities included a private patio area, a fully working sauna (payment required, but at £2 a go, more than reasonable). A full size snooker table and an entire 350 acre working farm to discover !. Pets are welcome and they are able to walk the farm with you (even welcome in the local Somerford arms pub !), I would recommend this place for those looking to get away from it all, but not too remote as Malmesbury village is only 3 miles away. All in all we enjoyed our stay, and if you're looking for rustic, this is it."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-08-05
