4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in August 2014

This nice home which is well kept by the owners living nexdoor. The largi living kitchen invites to do home kooking but also there is dining facilities at walking distance. The spacy living and bedrooms are also very wel maintained. In the livingroom we found many booklets of things to do in the surrounding. Als we made a number walking trips from the home or small drive with the car. The satelite TV had so many channels that I lost track on what is where. The environment is very quiet except a low frequent "Great Western Railroad" train pasing by (not at night, or I slept through it). The house has 2 nice badroom, one with bath and the other one with a shower. Great. THe kids loved the bath. THe entoire setup is modern.
One thing we did not like was the oil burner in the kitchen for the heating and warmwater. When in use it smels bad (petroleum smell). The owner told is was just serviced and is should not be smelling at all. We had to keep the windows open in the...

Management response:

Thank you for your review. With regards to the central heating boiler! The boiler has been checked by Worcester Bosch and found to have a leak, which has been fixed. Had you told us about the smell earlier instead of when you were leaving we could have got it fixed sooner. more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Kestrel Cottage provided excellent accommodation for our family of 5 when we visited in February.
The property has everything you need (and more) for a family to stay.
Mary and Martin are excellent hosts with nothing too much trouble.
The location of the property is ideal for walks along the canal and as a base for touring the area. Plenty to see and do in Wiltshire and the south coast just over an hour away. We also went to London for the day which our boys loved.
All in all, a very good break for the week, several days out and a nice, comfortable, clean house as well. Would recommend to all.
