Lovely house, clean, well decorated and equipped with everything. The main street with the shops is close but the place is very peaceful. We also appreciated the fish and chips shop just across the road. Great neighbours: Jonathan has been most kind and helpful with us, which certainly made our stay more pleasant. We had a great time exploring the surroundings, there is quite a lot to see and do in the area. Would really love to come back.

“Perfect location, beautiful home”
Reviewed August 20, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at the Manse with friends for the weekend. It is a beautifully decorated, well appointed cottage which was the perfect base for our weekend in Wiltshire. It is just steps from the high street in Marlborough but far enough away that there is no noise at night.

Comfortable beds, excellent shower, and very well equipped kitchen.

We would certainly return in the future!

“Lovely cottage in perfect location”
Reviewed June 29, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at The Manse.
The cottage has everything you could need with fantastically comfortable beds.
For us the biggest plus was having off road parking and the ability to walk into Marlborough with everything it has to offer. Despite being so close to the centre of town it was very peaceful, a perfect location.
We would have no hesitation in recommending staying at The Manse and hope to return ourselves.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed June 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We have just returned to Singapore after a lovely 9 night stay at The Manse. I can't find a single fault. Comfy beds with nice linen. A kitchen better equipped than my own at home. Jonathan was on hand to help us with any detail and we felt truly at home. The location is perfect and a 3 minute walk to the high street easy.
We will be booking again!

So pleased to hear that your stay went so well and that the house was all you had hoped for. We try very hard to make it comfortable and home from home and it is in a great location!
We are lucky to have Jonathan and Diane as neighbours and they do a great job looking after the house and our guests for us.
I received the dates that you would perhaps like to book and look forward to hearing from you.

“Would return as soon as I could”

“The Manse” is charmingly decorated with everything possible that one would require to make ones stay comfortable - all in smooth working order and it is immaculately clean. The colorful little garden, with parking for one car, adds to the pleasure of one’s stay.

This delightful home is tucked away below the main Marlborough road, fairly close to the Kennet River, so there is very little traffic noise. A beautiful walk next to the river takes one a matter of minutes to reach convenience stores on the main road e.g. Waitrose.

Additionally, and a big plus the neighbors - launch your stay off with a most comprehensive walk-through on arrival. This makes for quick familization of your new surroundings. - conveniently saving precious holiday time.

“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.

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.
