We stayed at Dowty's for 2 nights as a trip to get out of the city and relax for a couple of days in the countryside and that's exactly what we did! The house is just beautiful and lovingly furnished, right in the middle of stunning countryside yet close to other villages and in short driving distance from Salisbury. Di & Willie were so welcoming. Rather than making you feel like you're in a 'hotel', we actually felt like we were guests in their own beautiful home. There were plenty of walks to go on or places to visit in Salisbury, but we were equally happy relaxing by the fire which was kept lit for us and there were plenty of books and magazines available. The room was beautiful, as was the bathroom which was very clean and spacious. The breakfast was delicious with the best eggs we've ever had, which came from a farm just up the lane and also a wonderful homemade blackberry and apple compote.
Di was so helpful and gave us everything we needed; nothing was too much trouble for them. We would love to go back and stay in the future, it's the perfect place for a long weekend for those craving some fresh air and beautiful countryside in a home away from home.
