“Absolutely fantastic!”
Reviewed February 27, 2016 for a stay in February 2015

Everything you could hope and wish for - beautiful spacious accommodation with every home comfort you could need, nespresso machine, straighteners, multi charger, games, books, mags, loads of 'good' DVDs, well stock fridge for overnight stay /breakfast. Every detail is taken care of here and any help needed, hazel and Stephen are on hand next door to organise for you. Such friendly hosts with 2 young welcoming and friendly helpful children. The location is beautiful, a quiet pretty village alongside the River Avon 10 mins from Stonehenge and Salisbury. So much to do on your doorstep. Welcoming and rustic pub opposite allowing dogs offering good and reasonable food, a fine addition to this stunning accommodation. Thank you so much, it was a joy to stay here and we WILL be back and for longer . Look no further - book this now!

“Cheap and cheerful but over priced”

The b&b is in a quiet location greated by 2 dogs. but the room was not of a clean standard The lady did not know what room we were in or were the key was, she did not know how to turn the heater on, she was not much help at all
The room is small with a small short bed
After staying in some 20+ b&b's now on this trip you get to now what is good value
Their are many many rules to follow and I felt like if I did not follow these I would be charged extra. You have to cook your own breakfast (all tesco by the way) I think they spent a who £3
Brown bread only, no sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms and no baked beans. Kettle & toaster were dirty on the inside. Wifi works well but little to no mobile phone coverage
I do suggest the pub accros the quiet road but book a table well in advanced
I would not recommend this 21/2 star b&b as there are much better value once not far away

Unfortunately this customer stayed while we were away for a week and the housekeepers did not do a very good job. The beds are all king-size so not sure what they mean by small, however everything else has been rectified. The breakfast we offer consists of fresh eggs, smoked salmon, proscuitto, ham, cheese, bread, muesli, cornflakes, milk, selection of conserves, nespresso coffee machine, etc etc. It all comes from Waitrose. If you want sausage and bacon - we are probably your wrong venue. I would suggest you read our other reviews to get a fuller flavour of why we are a 5 star venue. Stephen (the owner)

“Nice but not perfection ”
Reviewed October 17, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

Reading the reviews of this place you would think it was heaven on a stick. Don't get me wrong, it has a lot going for it - quaint village, close to Stonehenge and Salisbury, across the road from a pub etc - but there were some issues with our stay.

Firstly, we were sent instructions about access and the description on the email talked about access to the cottage which already had people in it when we arrived. The housekeeper didn't seem to know who we were or where we were staying but she tried another door called the stables and it worked so we stayed there.

Inside it was cold and the directions for the heating said it was generally on in colder months but it wasn't warm. There was supposed to be a heater in the wardrobe but it wasn't there. We finally found it under the television in the cabinet along with the hairdryer!

Next to the bed I noticed some rubbish between the side table and wardrobe which hadn't been removed during cleaning although generally the room was very clean and well presented.

My husband went to the pub across the road when we arrived at 5pm to book a table for dinner. They told him to come back at 8:30pm or we could come for a drink and take dinner back to the room with us. We opted for the later but when we arrived for a drink they decided a table was available. Very confusing just a little bit weird but the food was nice, typical pub standard. It might be a good idea to suggest to guests to pre-book the pub for dinner. Whilst it's great you can take food away it wasn't really the experience we were after and while it worked out for us the people in the other room were not so lucky.

The bed is firm and smallish but suits the room.

At 6:00 am the television spontaneously turned on, hence I am awake and writing this review.

Breakfast is yet to be had but it is a self-prepare one.

All in all a nice place, just not as perfect as the reviews would lead you to believe.

“Excellent Apartment in Great Location”
Reviewed October 8, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Stonehenge Cottages were ideal for us - two couples travelling through Great Britain. There were two bedrooms at either end of the cottages with a lounge/dining room and kitchen in between. One bedroom had an ensuite and there was another bathroom next to the ensuite but separated from the other bedroom by the lounge/diner and kitchen. The apartment was very well appointed and there was an abundance of food provided esp. for breakfasts. It was a very comfortable apartment. The owners were very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. The pub across the road was a gem with good food and atmosphere. A short 10 minute drive into Salisbury and close to Stonehenge made it very central to many local attractions. A great place to stay in this area.

“Fantastic birthday weekend”
Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had booked just for the weekend and really wished we had booked for longer. We stayed in the junior suite which was a great size with a mini kitchen and a large ensuite bathroom, both of which had absolutely everything you could possibly need. Free Wifi and Netflix and a very large collection of dvd's were available for when we could drag ourselves away from the pub opposite, which serves great food and will even deliver to the cottages for you. Our hosts, Hazel and Steve were very friendly and welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. Very close to both Stonehenge and Salisbury for visit, which give a complete contrast in historical times.

Myself and six girlfriends stayed at Stonehenge Cottages last weekend, and it was absolutely fabulous! The buildings were beautiful, the interior was immaculately presented and the location was simply stunning. The Wheatsheaf pub (located opposite) served lovely food, which could even be delivered to the cottages! I literally can't fault the place, and have already recommend it to other friends!

“Stonehenge cottages was fantastic”
Reviewed April 1, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

My Wife and I stayed here between Christmas and New Year for 5 days and absolutely loved it. I totally forgot that we hadn't left a positive review until recently, when our stay came up in conversation, sorry Stephen and Hazel (the hosts) you and your efforts truly deserved a great review as anything was perfect.

If you want lots of beautiful country walks on the doorstep then the location will suit, you can even walk to Stonehenge from the cottage if you feel up to it. The pub opposite was very friendly so much so that a quick drink at around 4pm turned into an invite to join the locals at their table and a 9pm finish! We felt very welcome and managed to hold our own in the rounds of Guinness that flowed.

With Salisbury 10 mins drive or so with its fabulous cathedral and city shops this holiday cottage really did offer us everything. The cottage itself is luxurious inside with all modern necessities and very nice bed linen, which my wife tells me is very important!

If you are lucky enough to get a booking here you will not be disappointed.
