Introduction

A sensitive conversion of traditional, Victorian mellow brick and slate farm buildings into three high quality cottages with the added attraction of an integral, heated, indoor swimming pool.....

The farm

Conygre Farm is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Pewsey Vale. Its unusual name provides the clue to its original purpose. The farm once provided rabbits for the lord and master of the ancient Savernake Estate to hunt - 'Conygre' means 'rabbit enclosure' in medieval French. The farm has changed and evolved over the centuries and is now 340 acres of rolling, arable land with 35 acres of environmental 'features' including four newly planted woods, a wild flower and 'wild bird' meadow, to promote and enhance the natural flora and fauna - it now supports many different bird species (barn owls, lapwings, golden plover, grey partridge), wild mammals (hares & deer, not to mention the odd rabbit) and is the registered site of rare species of wild flowers.

The cottages

The latest development at Conygre Farm is the conversion of some of the farm buildings, which would once have been a milking parlour; bull pens and granary, into three top quality interconnecting holiday cottages providing accommodation for up to 21 people with 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 cottages are ideal 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.

The local area

From the farm there are 360 degree views of both sides of the valley up to the downs and plenty of walks on the farm. In the local area The Kennet & Avon Canal, 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.

Swimming pool/games facilities

The indoor pool (approx. 8 metres x 4 metres) and open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. can be accessed via a communal indoor walkway. It has its own changing room with shower and wc and is for the private use of visitors. A games room with table tennis, darts, games and an arts and crafts area for smaller children, as well as a tumble drier and freezer, is located in a separate barn on the other side of the courtyard.

Accommodation

All the accommodation in The Warren is at ground floor level, with the exposed original timber work lending character and style to the double height rooms. The cottage access out onto the large, enclosed, attractively landscaped courtyard garden area.

Main entrance into large, open plan living room comprising a sitting area with woodburning stove, an oak fitted kitchen and a dining area. Door to a lobby area providing access to the covered walkway and from there to the swimming pool area. 3 bedrooms - one with 5ft double and 1 with zip & link beds providing a king size double or 2 singles. Bathroom/wc. with independent shower above the bath. Further twin bedroom adjoining an additional sitting room with double sofa bed and level access to/from the courtyard. En suite shower room and separate wc. This end of the cottage could, if desired, be used by a disabled person with a carer.

What our guests say

Great family holiday

As grandparents, we rented two cottages in order to have a shared holiday with our two sons and their families. Our four grandchildren ranged in age from 3 to 12. They loved the swimming pool and spent time in it every day. The cottages were lovely and well-equipped. We enjoyed a visit to Devizes and also geo-caching in Savernake Forest.

Thank you for an enjoyable time. We celebrated 2 birthdays here. The games room was a big hit as was the pool. Lovely cake, thanks.

A fabulous weekend

A lovely quiet spot but close enough to Marlborough. Barns spotless and owners very friendly and helpful. Children and adults enjoyed the pool and games room. Highly recommend these properties.

Happy family holiday in great accommodation

We were a group of two grandparents and two young families. We rented The Burrow and The Warren which gave us excellent accommodation for six adults and four children. We were able to eat all together in the Burrow which had space for combined dining tables. There was a lovely indoor pool which was greatly enjoyed by us all. The cottages were very clean and comfortable and well equipped.

Guest's review on TripAdvisor, September 28 2016. 5 of 5 stars

We had a wonderful time at The Warren and loved the warm welcome of home-made Victoria sponge cake and tea on our arrival. The accommodation was wonderful and we loved the pool and use of the table tennis table. It was the perfect retreat to celebrate my dads 70th birthday and I will treasure the memories made last weekend for many years. Thank you so much.

We keep coming back to Conygre Farm

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.

Most enjoyable stay with the pool, a great attraction. Beautiful area, Avebury very well worth a visit. Cottage facilities first class, well presented and very quiet.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Warren and Old Cart Shed. The swimming pool was great and we had lots of adventurous walks with our two dogs. Thank you so much for the lovely cakes on arrival, they were delicious.
