We stayed at the Thimble cottage for twelve days. It is just practically perfect. Cozy, but plenty large enough for two people to stay. Wonderfully fitted out with a kitchen and great bathroom. There's even a back garden for taking your tea (or wine) on those nice fall afternoons. Location is great; on a quiet street just off the city center. About a five minute walk to the Market Square in Salisbury, about 15 minutes to the train station, and about 10 minutes to the Cathedral. The hosts are just terrific, very helpful and accommodating. We generally did our breakfast at the Cottage and then went out for lunch and dinner. We will definitely go back to Thimble Cottage the next time we're in Salisbury. One con - if you are tall (say 5ft 10inches or taller) remember to duck! The doorways are quite low. more

This delightful cottage tucked away on the edge of the city centre was a real treat. We didn't have any difficulty finding it although some of the streets in the location are one way.
We have stayed in rented holiday cottages/properties over the last 43 years but I have never stayed in one which was quite so well equipped. The black and white cottage has a small garden to the rear which was a real sun trap. An ideal location for the short walk into Salisbury city centre but still quiet for a city centre location. A real home from home.

Management response:
