Super place to stay whilst cycling the King Alfred Way. Karen & Eddie made me feel very welcome, even though I arrived on a muddy mountain bike. Highly recommended. It is also directly on the route, and The Bridge pub was an excellent place for an evening meal just a short ride from the cottage.

The whole house is finished to a very high stanard in a stunning area. Breakfast very good with hot pastries. Hosts are very friendly and keen on making sure the detail is right. Plenty to do in the local area with Salisbury 2 air museums, plenty of walking.

A lovely location, beautiful house and a warm welcome. Parking on site and easy to location, not very far from Salisbury. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Can't wait to come back again and explore more of the area. The house really is perfect.

My family and I were lucky enough to stay at Finch Cottage, Karen and Eddie could not have been more welcoming. The cottage was absolutely spotless, the beds were extremely comfortable and the breakfast delicious. The cottage is very well laid out and immaculate. Great location for going to Stonehenge and surrounding areas. Could not recommend it more highly!

We were lucky enough to stay at Finch Cottage last week whilst we attended a wedding nearby. Everything about our stay was brilliant, from dealing with queries prior to booking right through to checking out. The cottage itself is stunning and has everything you need (and more). But the warm welcome and genuine hospitality we received from Karen and Eddie was second to none. They were very understanding to our needs and made our stay so enjoyable. We will definitely return!

I stayed here with some friends of mine at the weekend for a girly get-away. I had the best weekend, Eddie and Karen went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, even providing warm pastries and coffee every morning. I couldn't fault a thing, the place was spotless, beds were comfortable, bedding smelt amazing, towels were soft, the whole cottage was presented beautifully too. Eddie and Karen gave us recommendations on the best local places to eat and visit too. We had the best time and I hope to come back again soon, thank you both! :)
