Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Beautiful cottage in a lovely location.We visited in September and still managed to sit out on the patio and admire the view. It was a real treat to pick the pears from the garden to bake cakes and crumbles. Also loved the fresh herbs in the garden. Very cosy with a real fire. Fantastic location with lots of places to visit. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back. Sept 2012.
  2. Beautiful character cottage in peaceful location, everthing we were looking for. May 2012.
  3. An absolutely fantastic holiday cottage. Beautifully set out, very clean and tidy. Making contact with the owner and collecting keys was a breeze. We were a group of 5 adults and one dog and had the best weekend away. Couldn’t have asked for better accommodation. Very reasonably priced with a great dog-friendly pub practically on the doorstep. Would recommend this to anyone. April 2012.
  4. Simply lovely cottage set in fantastic scenery. A wonderful pub with log fire just around the corner! Shame about the weather, but it didn’t put us off having a lovely short break! April 2012.
  5. A lovely, well equipped cottage in a lovely quiet village. The local pub is warm and friendly and there’s even a Chinese that will deliver late at night. March 2012.
  6. Excellent cottage in a great area. Pub is within walking distance and serves great food. Feb 2012.
  7. Lovely accommodation. Would definitey recommend. Feb 2012.
  8. My friends and I were incredibly impressed with the property, the convenience of the location, the country walks, the rustic feel and the local pub! The rooms were all a great size, the ambiance was relaxed and homely. The owner was very friendly, helpful and couldn’t have been more hospitable with the support in the run up to our weekend. Jan 2012.
  9. The cottage is in excellent condition,in winter it as a lovely cosy feel to it. Dec 2011.
  10. One of the most beautiful cottages we ever had, beautiful surroundings. Sept 2011.
  11. The cottage is well equipped, very quaint and comfortable lots of history provided by the owners. Excellent peaceful location with lovely gardens and superb views, a perfect spot to relax. Local supermarket in Wesbury, is okay for all basics but would recommend that visitors take specialist items with them as it is not large. Rockley is a good base from which to visit Stonehenge(NT), Longleet, Bath, Stourbridge (NT),and of course the Westbury Horse from which the views are fabulous. We will return. July 2011.
  12. This is a very beautiful cottage, with a very nice garden, and terrace: perfect to eat outside. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. We felt at home within minutes. July 2011.
  13. Cottage was very homely, and in a fantastic location for exploring Wiltshire, and the surrounding counties. July 2011.
  14. It was just a beautiful cottage with all the features of an old English country cottage mixed with modern luxuries. Lovely gardens which were clearly well maintained with a nice seated area to have breakfast/lunch/dinner when the weather was nice. Would definitely go back again! June 2011.
  15. A lovely cottage in the middle of a small village. Easy access to Bath and the local pub was great. Had a great time at the cottage for a hen do! June 2011.
  16. Wonderful location - the children loved it, as there was a beautiful children’s park about 50 paces from the cottage! The sunsets from the patio were glorious and lots of lovely walks and bike rides along the Bradford-on-Avon canal. The pub at Steeple Ashton had great food. Far more spacious than imagined, lovely comfortable thatched cottage. April 2011.
  17. We stayed at Rockley as we wanted to spend the weekend at Longleat for our Grand-Daughters birthday. It was great base for Longleat. The cottage was lovely, full of character, just what you would expect from an old thatched cottage. There was plenty of room for six adults and a toddler. We especially liked the kitchen where we had lovely cosy family meals. Everything you could have wanted was there. If I could I would live in a house like this!! April 2011.
  18. This is a beautiful cottage with plenty of good walks on the doorstep, we didn’t get in the car once all week. The garden was secure so Dave the Jack Russell was able to mooch about safely. March 2011.
  19. Lovelly homely spacious property. Very welcoming and good location. Easy to find. Cosy in winter - would love to see it in full summer. March 2011.
  20. A lovely cottage in an excellent elevated position. Being lucky with the weather we could take full advantage of the terrace which was a perfect suntrap. A stable door direct from the kitchen was convenient for our ’Al fresco lunch (in March!). March 2011.
