Overview

About the property

Beautiful cottage with delightful garden ideally located for exploring the area

Tucked away behind mature hedges and approached via a wooden footbridge over a small winterbourne (part-time stream), this is the archetypal ‘chocolate box’ thatched cottage, its instant visual appeal being amply justified both inside the house and in the delightful garden. Situated in the Wylye Valley, Foley’s Cottage is ideally located for exploring this beautiful area, steeped in history and full of magnificent landscapes and magical places to visit. Walkers, riders and cyclists are particularly well served by the multitude of footpaths, bridle and cycleways in this part of South Wiltshire and there is direct access onto the Wessex Ridgeway, which runs along the western boundary of the cottage. Further afield but still within easy reach by car are almost limitless attractions: Salisbury with its superb cathedral is about half an hour’s drive, with the New Forest beyond; Stonehenge, Longleat Safari Park, Stourhead and Wilton House are nearer still, and the Georgian city of Bath and the South Dorset coast are both less than an hour away.

ACCOMMODATION:

Entrance into attractive sitting room with central beam and inglenook fireplace; French windows lead out to a small courtyard with spiral staircase to upper garden level. Dining area at rear of room. Steps up to kitchen with breakfast table and walk-in larder. Passage leading to garden at rear of cottage. Downstairs shower room/wc. Stairs to first floor landing and two bedrooms, one double king size bed and wash basin and one twin. Further stairs to upper level. Master bedroom with French windows leading out to the garden. Bathroom with independent shower over the bath. Separate wc.

Very attractive colourful garden rising behind the cottage with terrace, lawns, orchard and long views. Secluded Summerhouse with fridge and comfortable seating. Garden furniture and BBQ. NB Small children should be supervised while in the garden – changes in level, steep steps and drops.

For those wishing to relax at home, Foley’s Cottage could hardly be bettered. French windows from the upper floor bedroom lead straight to an idyllic terrace, and well-kept and colourful gardens rise behind the house. A stroll to the top of the grounds is rewarded by sweeping views of the surrounding downs; whilst the well-appointed summerhouse in the orchard provides a wonderfully peaceful haven for relaxing after a day’s activities in this exceptional area – perhaps before an excursion to the famous Dove Inn and restaurant just below.

Great location and wonderful accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a short break in October. it was a picturesque location and allowed our family of 6 to spread out, play in the gardens and relax at home for dinner. We could also easily get to Bath and Stonehenge. Special thanks for walking us through the last few meters to the place as we arrive late at night and it was difficult to see the cottage.
