The cottage was totally refurbished last year. On the ground floor there is a kitchen which retains the original floor tiles and has all the equipment necessary for all your needs. The living room has a round dining table which seats 4, a sofa and 2 easy chairs TV and video player. The bathroom which has a new suite is on the 1st floor. The shower is over the bath. The master bedroom has a double bed, 2 bedside cabinets and a wardrobe. The 2nd bedroom has a full size single bed with retractable bed below. This sleeps 2 children comfortably. There is a chest of drawers and bedside cabinet.
All the fixtures and fittings in the cottage are new.
It is small but has been sympathetically restored.
I was borne in Wiltshire but work frequently in Spain and my wife and family live there. This was bought as our seaside holiday home.
I am a local person born and brought up in Corsham where most of my family still live.
I now live and work in London but spend as much time as possible in Wiltshire.
For me Wiltshire is a beautiful area where I can relax.
Biddestone is an ideal base for visiting a variety of places of interest.
The village itself has all the charm of a Corswold village but without the commercialisation.
A great time was had by all. Lovely cottage, gorgeous village, marvellous weather!
Recommend local walk along By-Brook. Also fantastic trips to Bath, Longleat and Bristol. Rabson Family, Purley, Surrey 25th July 2014.

Notes on prices:
Wellside is generally £100 a week more because it is a larger cottage and has a pleasant secluded garden.
Well End is more compact but is as well equipped as Wellside. It is ideal for families or friends of Wellside guests but is a completely self contained cottage. Ideal for a small family wishing to visit the area.
Guests returning for further visits to either cottage will be given a 10% discount.
We were greeted very warmly by Gwen and shown into the delightful cottage. It was a real treat to have cookies, fruit, milk and fresh flowers provided when we arrived. The cottage and garden are simply beautiful, maintained to a high standard and very clean. The finishing touches are excellent. The cottage is very well provisioned with anything you could possibly need; from a pencil sharpener, pegs, books, dvd's, games to tea bags, coffee, bubble bath, shampoo and much more. The beds were extremely comfortable, with good quality bedding and towels.
The village and surrounding area is beautiful and we had two weeks of glorious weather exploring the Cotswolds on foot, by bike and car. The Biddestone Tennis Club were very friendly and allowed us to join in their social tennis sessions and use their courts at other times.
We would definitely recommend this cottage to family and friends and hope to return in the future. We would like to say a huge thank you to Gwen for everything she did to help make our holiday so amazing!
We loved staying at this cottage. It suited our every need. The kids (4 and 2) loved playing with all the toys and in the garden. Hope to come back some day.
This was absolutely the most darling cottage in a wonderful village! Gwen - the caretaker - was sweet and accommodating. The cottage was spotless and had many amenities that made my stay easy and pleasant. Everything was better than advertised. The garden was gorgeous and relaxing to sit and have a glass of wine at the end of the day.
I highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again! Thank you, Gwen!
The Cottage was quaint but the general upkeep of the property was terrible. The lights throughout the property were temperamental at best if they worked at all. To the point we had to have electricians in the cottage for two full days meaning we couldn't use the Kitchen or Bathroom during this time. When speaking to the owner she suggested we would be given some form of a discount for the inconvenience and disruption caused during our holiday stay. However when we followed up about this Gwen the host was extremely rude.
We were told this was a three bedroom cottage which it was but one of the beds couldn't be slept in because it was in such a bad state and the other two were very uncomfortable. The bedding was terrible, in the middle of winter we would expect blankets to keep us warm but were supplied with feather duvets that had over half the feathers missing. The fitted sheets did not fit the beds, they were too small. The towels supplied were like sandpaper.
The bathroom fan did not work to the point where we had to wipe the entire bathroom down after every shower as the walls were dripping. The side of the bath was also hanging off for our entire stay.
All in all the host was rude, we were put out by maintenance during our stay, the beds were terrible and we would definitely not be staying here again or recommending it to anyone.
We had a wonderful holiday at Wellside. There was absolutely everything that you could need, quality appliances and a gorgeous garden backing on to a field. We had cows in the field on more than one occasion and even saw bats in the evening! Top that off with comfy beds, quality bedding and light bright and airy rooms it really is a home from home.
Gwen our lovely hostess made sure that we had everything that we needed and was readily available if we had any problems (which thankfully we didn't). We can't recommended this cottage highly enough and would definitely return in the future.
