“Just what we wanted”

We chose this as centre for a walking break and, as buses stop early evening, the off street parking was useful. Two good sized bedrooms both with comfortable beds gave good nights' sleep. Really good bathroom with a a fine shower (as well as a bath) another WC with wash hand basin prevented conflicts. Clean tidy and pleasantly furnished.
Booked four nights and stayed a fifth which kind of says it all.
Tea, coffee, water and milk awaited us along with dishwasher tablets but no laundry powder but I guess I would have been there if we asked!
We did no cooking but the kitchen was fine once we got to grips with starting the washing machine<g>
Walking distance to Devizes (market day Wednesday). Devizes has both Sainsbury and Morrison supermarkets
George and Dragon ten minutes stroll away in the village has cheerful staff and good pub food with something for everyone. If eating in Devizes Cantina Maya restaurant in Snuff Street (opens evenings at 7pm) is friendly and has tasty different food so much better than Pizza Express!

“very comfortable beds and all amenities you could wish for”
Reviewed May 1, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Sarah and David were very obliging. Whist there were some steps down into the cottage our cases were carried in for us, though we could have managed despite being in our 70s The rooms were spacious and warm and the beds extremely comfortable. We both said we had not slept so well for ages.
The village especially the church are interesting and the local pub had reasonable meals. Potterne is a good centre for touring about and we especially enjoyed the Caen Locks, Laycock, Bradford on Avon and Malborough.. Devizes was very good for several supermarkets and had a market on Thursday.We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. We were a party of 3 and had plenty of room.

“Lovely cottage and great location for Avebury and Stonehenge”
Reviewed May 23, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

Just spent a great long weekend at Mount View Cottage in Potterne. Very clean and well presented with huge comfy beds in both rooms.
Lovely bathroom and great shower with the added bonus of an additional toilet and sink right next to the second bedroom
Visit supported studies in pre-history with visits to Avebury, West Kennet, Silbury Hill and surrounding landscape. The easiest journey I've had to Stonehenge with the road through the village heading straight there in about 25 mins and avoiding the inevitable queues of the A303! We also enjoyed the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes, currently hosting the Lacock Cup and locating several white horses in nearby villages.
A lovely cottage to return to each evening with everything we needed

“Well appointed cottage in a beautiful area of the country”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed at Mount View Cottage with my family for a short break this summer. Sarah was a wonderful host and made sure we made the most of our visit. The accommodation had all the facilities we needed, with many touches of luxury. Sarah recommended a trip to Bowood House and gardens - w had a fantastic day out there, with the children enjoying the amazing adventure playground.

Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Had a great week with my 10 year old niece in this lovely cottage. The beds were extra comfy and we had everything we needed. Bathroom really nice with a great shower. Comfortable living and dining rooms and well equipped kitchen. Decor is outstanding, and a lovely courtyard. DVDs, some toys and books were very nice touches, and the welcome pack appreciated.
So many places to visit. We went to Bristol, Dyrham Park, Lacock, Salisbury, Stonehenge, Caen Locks and a boat trip from Devizes. The museum in Devizes is a hidden treasure.
We recommend the Rowdey Cow for a hearty breakfast and the best ice cream around!
Thanks Sarah for a lovely home from home!

“Comfortable cottage in a good location”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We enjoyed our break at Mount View cottage, Sarah was a friendly and obliging host and we could not find fault with the cottage facilities. The cottage is in an ideal spot for visiting other places and we even walked to Devizes through some lovely woodland. After hunting on the internet we discovered the opening hours for the 'local' pub only to discover they did not serve food on a Monday (the day we arrived) which was a bit of a disappointment. Maybe some more up-to-date information (eg leaflets) in the cottage would be a good idea.

We will definitely visit again.
