Description

Ideal family accommodation in a rural location, yet still close to a variety of attractions for all ages.

In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Excellent walking and cycling area

Set in a peaceful rural location on the borders of Dorset and Wiltshire, Pond Cottage is situated on Whitebridge Farm which is not a working farm but is ideal for a family touring holiday with excellent walking and cycling in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Both the South Wiltshire and Dorset cycle ways pass nearby and there are numerous waymarked walks, including the half-hour Shaftesbury town trail, which leads to the famous Gold Hill, with its magnificent views. Many historic houses in the area, including Stourhead (NT). An hour’s drive leads to Salisbury, Bath, Cheddar and Weymouth. Visit Stonehenge, and then the ancient Avebury Stone Circle. Set in 10 acres, the eight cottages, one of which is featured here, are grouped around an attractive grassed courtyard and were once stables for the owner’s impressive farmhouse (built in 1872). Old beams have been retained wherever possible. Many pubs serving food and with outdoor eating/children’s play areas nearby - why not try East Knoyle for starters. Shop and pub within a mile.

    As our party consisted of 5 adults, 1 of the double bedrooms did not have any floor space, and no wardrobes spaces, just a clothes rail. I would like to suggest that the double bed be put in the twin bedded room that has the en-suite, and one of the twin beds be put in the smaller bedroom to give space, making this property big enough for 5 and not acommodating 6. The kitchen needed a new hob as the elements kept switching off when trying to use at least 2 or 3 rings at the same time, making cooking time longer. More utensils where also needed, cheese grater, pyrex casserole dish, and a replacement frying pan and serving spoon etc....

    The layout of the cottage worked well for the make up of our party. The cottage details claimed all bedrooms have ensuites which isn't the case. The property would benefit from some TLC, most of the windows panes in the conservatory have blown and look dirty. The cottage has an enclosed garden, we were trying to relax on Saturday morning when the owner decided to cut the grass with a ride on mower.

    Very comfortable cottage. The beds in particular were very comfortable. The kitchen is very small but has everything in it.
