English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Guests at Daubeneys Shippon can relax in the living room next to the wood burner whilst looking out across the garden!

These attractive holiday properties lie in the peaceful conservation village of Colerne, surrounded by rolling countryside. The Grade II* listed stable conversion (PFFH) is part of the only longhouse in Wiltshire and dating back to the 13th century, is the oldest house in the village. Beautifully refurbished to offer all modern conveniences, yet retains charm and character. Sympathetically converted, the detached, single-storey barn (PHHF) offers light and airy, contemporary accommodation. Colerne has a good selection of shops and pubs but only a short bus journey, 7 miles, will take you into Bath and Chippenham. Within easy reach of Bristol, Bradford-on-Avon and the much-filmed villages of Lacock and Castle Combe. Great area for walking. Shop 200 yards, family pub and restaurant 10 yards.

Living/dining room with vaulted ceiling, wood-burning stove and patio doors leading to own garden. Well-equipped kitchen area. Double bedroom with patio doors leading to another garden. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Wooden floor and beams throughout.

    This is potentially a lovely holiday cottage, that is let down my the small things that can really make or break your experience. For example, whilst the building looks lovely as you first walk in and is decorated nicely etc, we felt it could have been cleaner (lots of cobwebs around the place etc). Perhaps it is a little fussy, but I was also disappointed with the shower. When I go away for a break I like to look forward to a standard of fixtures that are better than what I have at home. The cottage had a rain shower which produced a very low pressure and just was a bit underwhelming. A small thing I know, but these are the things that can make a place really enjoyable. We were travelling with our six month old baby, who creates a lot of washing. We therefore needed to use the washing machine quite a bit and found it didnt get things clean, not did the water ever get hot. Again, this is a simple thing to get right, but quite annoying for guests if it is not working properly. The owner, Melanie, was helpful and organised, but a little more professionalism would improve the experience. For example when I rang to arrange key collection she answered the phone without stating the business name, and when we arrived we were slightly bombarded with information and questions as we were unpacking the car. Whilst this was well meaning, it would have been nice to settle in a bit first. More positively, the cottage is warm and generally very comfortable. The decor is good and the whole place was well appointed with everything you might need. Whilst the cottage is very close to the owners' house and the general situation in the ground of the main house is very pleasant. As dog owners we were a little un-nerved about being reliant on other guests to shut the main gain leading to the road, and would have preferred the cottage's garden to be fully enclosed. Bedding and towels etc were good quality and very clean. There was lots of information provided on local attractions, transport etc which was well thought-out and nicely presented. We lit the wood-burner one night which was lovely, and everything to do so was provided which we liked. We also appreciated the food/drink supplies that were provided. Overall, with a few tweaks the place could be excellent, but as is, I would not stay here again. Admittedly, the things that bothered us may not bother other guests at all!

    Lovely cottage, very nicely done out, very comfy beds. Melanie was most welcoming (along with Thumper!). Good location - not too far out of Bath; nice, friendly pubs in village. Would definitely visit again

    The cottage was clean and comfortable and located within the Owners' grounds. It was in an ideal and peaceful position in the centre of the village. A nice place to relax after a long day of touring around. The arrival at the cottage was memorable by the very friendly welcome by the Owners' Melanie and Ian, Border Collie, Thumper and the nice provision of a welcome pack.

    Very nice and clean cottage in a nice village. Everything you need is in the cottage. Nice garden. Very comfortable house. The only thing strange is that the owner when we left didn't go out his house to say goodbye to my wife and daughter.
