“Ideal place to stay in Salisbury”
Reviewed December 13, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Located only five minutes from the City shopping centre and 10 minutes from Salisbury Cathedral. Thimble Cottage has all the amenities to make it a home from home, washing facilities, WIFI, TV, nice large shower, comfortable bedroom and an especially nice rear garden. We have used Thimble twice and found everything clean and tidy, did not have time to read all the books !! The surrounding area is ideal for walking, especially the river walk from St Thomas's Church up to Stratford-sub-Castle/Old Sarum. New Forest is only a 30 minute drive away. Although the cottage has first class cooking facilities, Salisbury has plenty of restaurants and nice pubs. We have already booked two weeks accommodation for 2017 !!

“Comfortable, clean, convenient”
Reviewed December 13, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Thimble Cottage is quaint but comfortable, ideally located with walking distance of Salisbury town centre and attractions like the Cathedral. We were met by the owner and given parking tickets for the duration of the stay. (Unfortunately we didn't put one on early enough the next morning and we got a ticket! So put it in the night before!)

The cottage itself is well equipped, with vintage china and plenty of cooking utensils. The shower room is large with an efficient shower. The bed is comfortable with good quality linen. The lounge has two comfy settees and lots of books and DVDs to keep you entertained.

The only thing I would warn about is that the cottage is not suitable if you have limited mobility, as the staircase is extremely steep and narrow.

We would certainly book this cottage again for a future stay in Salisbury.

“A terrific place to stay in Salisbury...”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

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.

“Delightful Cottage”
Reviewed September 19, 2014 for a stay in September 2014
1
person found this review helpful

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.
