Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very quiet with friendly owners. Everything worked fine, even the wifi. Plenty of places to visit and property well situated for touring round. April 2012.
  2. The Milking Parlour was first class we could not fault it, it had every thing to make our stay very enjoyable. March 2012.
  3. A beautiful property finished to a very high standard. Could do with a bigger bed in the master bedroom and a shower in the second bathroom, but that’s just being picky as it was a truly lovely place. Feb 2012.
  4. A beautifully appointed, extremely comfortable place to spend a weekend (a week or two would have been better). The Milking Parlour was warm and cosy during one of the coldest weekends this winter. Hosts were welcoming and helpful. Feb 2012.
  5. Absolutely lovely cottage, rooms were perfectly laid out and very tastfully decorated, we both commented that this is how we would have a cottage if it was our own. It was great to have a good sized kitchen to cook and a good sized living room to relax in front of the log burner. We went in winter but BBQs in the summer would be great. The owners were also lovely, perfectly helpful and left us to enjoy the cottage and surroundings, so it felt like our place for the weekend. Dec 2011.
  6. Fantastic weekend away from all the hassle so peaceful and quite photos on website do not show this property off to its full potential lovely owners all little touches milk tea flowers and heating put on excellent definitely worth staying at. Dec 2011.
  7. Very comfortable cottage in peaceful surroundings but handy for lots of interesting places to visit. We were working during this break but plan to revisit with our families in the future. Nov 2011.
  8. A beautiful cottage our only advise would be for more crockery and cutlery to enable efficient use of the dishwasher. We were amazed to find an hourly bus service into Swindon from the end of the lane. Val made us extremely welcome and we would certainly use it again if we were in the area. Sept 2011.
  9. Very comfortable cottage, stylishly furnished and in a peaceful location. August 2011.
  10. The finishing touches at the cottage from the owners were very good. It is an excellent base for travelling to Longleat Safari Park and so many other venues. July 2011.
  11. An exceptionally well-equipped cottage. April 2011.
  12. Was fitted out to a very high standard the best we have ever come across. Peaceful and quite good location for all counties to visit. Sept 2010.
  13. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Aug 2010.
  14. The photographs do not do justice to this delightful holiday let. Everything exceeded our expectations. The rooms were spacious and very clean. I would highly recommend this holiday let to anyone wishing to stay in this area. I could not fault it at all and the owners were very welcoming and helpful. July 2010.
  15. My Mum and I visited this property for a weekend break. It was just the most beautiful place to stay, so luxurious and the owners were so kind and helpful to us. We arrived later than expected and Val had the wood burner already lit and tea and cake which was a lovely touch. Thanks for a lovely stay. Sept 2009.
  16. Lovely conversion everything we could think of provided, exceeded expectations. Aug 2009.
