“Perfect little cottage”
Reviewed February 22, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We came over just for a sightseeing weekend. The cottage is central so everything is around the corner from cafes, pub, restaurants and take away. This was handy as it poured it the whole weekend. The kids loved it though and amazingly wanted to stay in rather than get cabin fever.

Jonathan turned the heating on for us in advance and showed us where everything was and how it functioned. He is very handy to have next door! Sue communicated everything in advance.

We did eventually manage to make it out for a wander and even made it down to Avebury which was nice. Despite the weather I would recommend coming to this part of the country and would stay in The Mense again for sure. Thoroughly recommend it.

So pleased that you all enjoyed your stay, despite the dreadful weather! Thankyou for your wonderful review and for leaving the house in such good order; always very much appreciated. We are very lucky to have Jonathan and Diane next door to look after the house and our guests for us. They do a brilliant job.
There is so much to see and do in the area, so if you would like to make a return visit at any time we'd be really happy to hear from you.

“Perfect location for Marlborough”
Reviewed January 17, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We arrived at the Manse on Christmas eve, Jonathan was waiting. The cottage was lovely and warm and cosy. The Christmas lights were on. It was just perfect, Absolutely immaculate.
Perfect position to walk into town. We loved it. We stayed for three night whilst visiting friend in the area. Jonathan could not have been more helpful. We would definitely stay here again. It was a real treat.

This property is located in a quiet location close to lovely shops and restaurants. Stayed for a few days over the Christmas break and felt very 'at home' there. Was greated and shown round by the lovely neighbours. Happy to have seen the new year in in Marlborough.

“Sisters weekend away”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Have now visited the lovely manse 3 times for weekends away with my sisters. We choose the manse originally as it was equal distance for us. But keep going back as it is just superb. The manse has everything you need, very well equipped and has always been extremely clean. Johnathon is a great extra. Always there if you need him, helpful, funny and cheerful. The lovely market town of Marlborough is perfect, and just a 3 minute walk from the manse. Plenty of great places to eat if you don't fancy cooking. Have booked already to return next year.

“Location! Location! Location!”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We four were very happy with our stay at The Manse in Marlborough. The location for sightseeing was excellent, and the proximity to Heathrow was a plus also. We were impressed with the selection of interesting shops and warm, welcoming pubs just up the street. After busy days we twice enjoyed take-away meals that are near the apartment.
The Manse itself was perfectly appointed, very clean, very quiet, and had a generously equipped kitchen. It felt like home! The owner was very responsive and helpful and neighborJonathan was most welcoming and helpful with touring advice. He and his wife are assets too!

Thankyou so much for taking the time to do a review and for your wonderful comments. Jonathan and Diane are certainly indispensable and I don't quite know how we'd cope with two holiday lets if they didn't look after The Manse for us. We were pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Marlborough and that the house was all you had hoped for.
If you would like to stay at The Manse or West View House in Devizes any time in the future we'd be really happy to hear from you.

“Cottage was spotless, tastefully furnished and very comfortable.”

Cottage was spotless, tastefully furnished and very comfortable. Extremely quiet but central location, neighbour Jonathan was extremely welcoming and genial throughout our short stay. If in the area again we would definitely stay here. Local area very picturesque and Avebury was stunning.

“Perfect place for a relaxing break.”
Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Marlborough is a great place to visit lots of good shops and restaurants and plenty of walks you can do without needing to take the car. However, there are two problems...it is very busy and there is no where to park. The Manse solves these problems, you can stay in a beautifully appointed cottage that is tucked away down a lane but just a few minutes walk from the High Street and it has it's own parking place.

I really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the cottage and the surrounding countryside but it was excellent to be able to walk just a few yards (literally) to a fish and chip shop when I couldn't be bothered to cook. There are also Chinese and Indian takeaways either side of the Fish and Chip shop and a very wide range of pubs, cafes and restaurants within a 10 minute walk.

All the fixtures and fittings in The Manse are top quality and I don't think I have ever stayed anywhere that has more plates and glasses! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and hope to be able to return.

Many, many thanks for your very informative and glowing review. I was a little worried when saw that there were two problems! So pleased that they were not problems with the house and did not affect your stay. Marlborough is certainly a very popular market town. However, you're right in saying that this does not affect our visitors, as the house is nicely tucked away in a very quiet area yet very close to all amenities. We love it and have been known to stay there ourselves! If you would like to make a return visit at any time we'd be really happy to hear from you.
