“If you want the best!”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was a hidden gem right in the heart of Devizes. Our group consisted of six adults looking to see the town and visit a few local hostelries. Sue and Richard made our stay with their warm welcome and abundance of local knowledge. The house is homely, clean, and all fixtures, fittings and furnishings are of good quality. Definitely a place to go back to if we wish to see Devizes again.

“Splendid holiday partly due to the very comfortable and lovely West View house.”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The second week of a wonderful holiday in the UK.
Found via Holiday Lettings and booked based on the excellent reviews.

We were staying in West View house from aug 1 to aug 8 with family (8 persons).
After a warm welcome by Richard and Sue, who were great hosts during this week, we were first amazed by the luxurious kitchen that really has more quality and comfort than we ever would expect: it even included a steam oven. Although the house is in the middle of the center, you can hardly hear any noise from the street, even when sitting outside. West View house is a good base for various day trips: ancient history (stones, romans), estates (house, garden, playground), landscape (beach, gorges), antiques, pictureque villages (film sets), all amply within a 60 minutes drive. Also Devizes has a lot of nice things to do (shopping, locks, brewery). Richard and Sue give great advice in the places to visit (including places we never heard of or would have thought about) and most of their recommendations are budget friendly too (Avebury instead of Stonehenge). There is so much to do in this area that we skipped our initially intended visit to London.
So for us the best place we could have wished for discovering this part of England, and the warmest hosts for an overwhelming stay. We do certainly strongly recommend this house to anyone who plans to visit this area.
Richard and Sue, again thanks for a wonderful week!

“The Devizes Rental Property Against Which Others Should be Judged”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

OK, OK, so I stayed here several times and it's not cheap, but there simply isn't anywhere that compares; we are coming back again at Christmas !

The kitchen with its pegmatite countertop and being so wonderfully equipped (I convinced Sue to add a couple more things) really makes it special. And it suits a variety of sleeping arrangements - we put an extra bed on the landing for our daughter. The furnishings are superb and comfy; the whole place oozes quality.

Richard and Sue are excellent hosts, and laid on extra chairs and a metal table for the barbecue; nothing is too much trouble.

For the drinkers, the Lamb and The Vaults are within staggering distance and are top drawer drinkers' pubs.

Property would really benefit from a clothes dryer; when the weatehr is rubbish, it can be a struggle just with the inside rack.

Liked best: Kitchen ! Location; quality & standard of furnishings, size of rooms; 3 toilets.
Liked least: Some doors are noisy and not perfectly fitting / handles noisy, esp. the master bedroom. Could benefit from a couple of drops of oil on a number of the door hinges. Porch could benefit from some coathooks......Is this really all I can come up with?

“If I could have moved in permanently... I would have!”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I live in Devon and my friend of 30 years lives in London... We regularly meet up as near as half way as possible and have over the years met in some odd places! Not so Devizes and especially not this wonderful holiday home! Frankly it was the lovliest place we have stayed in!! The house itself is stunningly well decorated and with huge rooms, sumptuous furnishings and linen and everything to the highest specification... Whilst maintaining a marvellous homely feel. It's quieter than quiet and yet in the heart of the town making all the local attractions within a short walk. Sue and Richard were so welcoming ...with all sorts of information on what we could do locally and further afield... Richard also has lots of information on the history of the area which was really interesting for me as a lover of history! We will definitely go back ...we didn't actually want to leave!!

“Fantastic find, secluded yet right in the heart of a bustling market town.”
Reviewed June 20, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a wonderfully appointed Georgian Town house in a quiet secluded setting with plenty of parking but within easy walking distance of shops, pubs and restaurants. We spent a week catching up with friends and family and the house was ideal for four adults and two children but also with space to entertain. Sue and Richard have done a fantastic job in equipping the house with a fantastic kitchen, well appointed and spacious bedrooms and plenty of loos!
Could not recommend this house more strongly.

“Amazing”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This holiday cottage was just fantastic. Beautiful property and the pictures don't do it justice. It was a lot bigger than we first assumed which was great. The kitchen comes with everything you would need.
The location is perfect with everything you need on your doorstep.
Lovely quiet location very peaceful.
We will definitely be returning for a weekend break or possibly longer!
Thanks Richard and Sue.

Thankyou so much for the wonderful review and really pleased that you enjoyed your stay despite it being short. We try to keep the house as somewhere we would like to stay ourselves.
I really must update the photos as we keep being told that they don't do the house justice!
Look forward to perhaps hearing from you again in the future.

Wow! What a beautiful clean house. We were all impressed with the style and decor of the house and it was wonderful to find such a well equipped kitchen. The beds were very comfortable with crisp, white linen. A great location. This accommodation has everything going for it. Sue and Richard couldn't be more helpful.
