A well located, peaceful, spacious place.

  • 5 of 5

The Stables are lovely. Well laid out, modern and comfortable. The immediate area is peaceful and relaxing. We found that the location was very central to all the things we planned on doing - walking, visiting sites of ancient history ( Avebury, West Kennet, Stonehenge) The walking is great, lots of public footpaths in Wiltshire and the Avon Kennet canal, Savernake forest, The Ridgeway.

Great little villages and pubs.

Had a great visit.

A lovely stay on the farm

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely three night stay at The Stables, Manor Farm, East Grafton - with my elderly parents, sister and two dogs. The accommodation is so comfortable, a lovely bathroom each, a TV each, well equipped, warm, clean and in beautiful countryside. Fantastic pub at Wilton called The Sun. The owners are lovely and welcoming - as are the chickens and guinea fowl! Lots of information to help you over your stay. We will be back and thoroughly recommend this property.

Wonderfully relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful opportunity for friends from Somerset, Northamptonshire and Hertfordshire to catch up in a wonderful, relaxing and lovely environment. The accommodation was well thought out and we had a lovely girly weekend chilling out and exploring the local area. We will definitely be getting our diaries together to plan a return trip soon.

High Quality Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

From our initial enquiry to our departure our visit was dealt with excellently. On arrival the cottage was presented very well. Everything was in place from welcome supply of tea/coffee biscuits to good supply of all those essentials such as dish washer tablets, loo rolls etc.

The conversion of the stables has been done to a very high standard with 3 double en-suite bedrooms an excellent open plan living space. The layout of space is ideal for families as one bedroom at one end of the conversion whilst the other two are at the other end seperated by the living space.

The area around the cottage is ideal walking country and as the cottage is dog friendly your pet will also enjoy the experience. Of course you are staying on a working farm so care must be taken with dogs and children alike.
