Luxuriously cosy cottage ideal for couples and families alike.

Magical cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent two special days at Hinton Lodge. The location was perfect - close to so many places we wanted to visit, such as Bath and Stonehenge, and situated in a gorgeous setting amidst fields and bridle paths. The house was comfortable and charming, well-equipped for cooking, and we made good use of the fireplace one night. We slept very well in the beds, and appreciated the peacefulness of this lovely home. Our host and housekeeper were very responsive and helpful. We highly recommend this property.

Really lovely, well equipped cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Hinton Lodge for a couple of nights over the Christmas period. We were very impressed by the standard of the cottage. The cottage is very well equipped too, with everything we needed for our short break. The only slight aspect we found to be a small issue was storing food/drink as the kitchen is small and is already full with everything. This didn't cause us an issue as we were only staying a short time but longer stays may need to consider this. Hinton lodge is a great base for exploring Longleat and surrounding areas. Overall would thoroughly recommend.

Perfect Victorian getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely Christmas at Hinton Lodge and could not fault it. Beds and bedlinen made for luxurious nights, and classy crockery and fittings added to overall comfort. As a veteran of rental cottages I give this one top marks.

Charming two bedroomed self catering unique property

  • 5 of 5

two couples had a five day break here while one couple had a weekend course of Glass Blowing at the Glass Hub { info@theglasshub.co.uk } the far side of Trowbridge

Hinton Lodge has everything you will need ~ fully equipt in the kitchen { including dish washer } ~ spotless inen and towels ~ clean comfortable warm and snug ~ plenty of hot water ~ rural views ~ friendly local horse ~ local pub { about a mile } good ale and sensibly priced pub grub ~ the only down side is that one of our mobiles had restricted reception. The owner was very pleasent and obliging and we would have no hesitation in recommending Hinton Lodge to anybody.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at Hinton Lodge. Quiet and rural are in fact the best words to describe the location. Perfect for visiting the area's assets. Lovely inns around, but making reservations is advised. Very useful folder in the cottage with lots of practical information.

According to the description, there is a Dolce Gusto coffee maker, but this is not true. We bought capsules in advance and regret it now.

But overall great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted that you have had a nice time at Hinton Lodge and are very grateful to you for taking the time to review our property. We would like to apologise for your disappointment with the lack of coffee machine. We had to remove it from the cottage as it was leaking and were hoping to fix it, but haven't managed. We will buy a new one as soon as possible. Once again please accept our apologies for this misrepresentation in our literature and thank you for pointing it out to us. All the very best, Clea
