Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Amesbury - Enford House Cottage

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, Sleeps 6 + 1

With 3 ensuite bedrooms and set within a beautiful thatched walled garden Enford House Cottage is the perfect place for a relaxing & peaceful break in the english countryside but is also within easy reach of many tourist attractions including Stonehenge, Avebury & Salisbury.

The cottage is an attached wing of the 18th Century, Grade 2 listed manor house (Enford House) and is a home away from home with comfortable beds, good quality bedlinen and towels and a well equipped kitchen.

The property is surrounded by the wall garden which is situated next to the village church and beyond that fields. The village pub, which serves good food, is 2 minutes walk away. The cottage is child friendly - the garden is enclosed by the wall and there is a thatched games room for visitors to use with table tennis and table football. Wifi is available throughout the property.

For those with children, within the large garden (shared with the owners who live next door) there is a games room with table tennis table and table football and outside a swing and slide, football net and chickens. When there are spare eggs, and vegetables from the garden, we will put a selection in the cottage fridge for your arrival (please note this is seasonal!). The garden is completely enclosed and the entrance gate can be shut for those with young children or dogs.

The village of Enford is in the Avon Valley - the village is surrounded by countryside and there are lots of places to walk or bicycle. Stonehenge is an hours walk or 10 min drive.

The village has 2 great local pubs. The Swan, which is 2 minutes' walk, and The Red Lion, in the next door village of East Chisenbury, which is 2 minutes' drive or a 20 minute walk. Both do good food - the Red Lion has a Michelin pub award for its food and is a well known Wiltshire pub which people come a long way to visit. There is no shop in the village itself but there are local shops in neighbouring villages less than 5 minutes drive away, major supermarkets in the local towns and all the supermarkets do delivery to the door. And for those looking for a winter get away the cottage is very warm with central heating throughout, an electric log burner in the sitting room and double glazing so is very cosy!

The cottage is ideally situated for the following places of interest

•Stonehenge (10 mins drive) and Avebury (25 mins drive) Stone Circles (World Heritage sites),

•Salisbury Cathedral, Old Sarum and the Medieval cities of Salisbury & Wilton (25 min drive)

•Historic Market towns of Devizes, Pewsey, and Marlborough (20 min drive)

•Kennet Canal (20 min drive)

•Longleat House, Adventure Playground and Safari Park (40 min drive)

•National Trust village of Lacock (50 min drive)

•Stourhead (50 min drive)

•Bath & Winchester (both 1 hour drive)

•Plus lots of children's activities including family friendly farms, Paultons Park (for Peppa Pig World) and many more - the information booklet in the cottage lists all of these

Why Mary Campbell chose Amesbury

My husbands parents bought the property when he was a baby and he grew up here and inherited it in 2005. His grandmother used to live in the cottage

What makes this cottage unique

With the thatched walled garden and special door in the wall to take you through to the churchyard Enford is a very special place. The cottage has a lovely feeling about it and everyone comments on how comfortable the beds are!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very happy holiday in this lovely cottage. Coming from belgium we were very excited by the walled garden and lovely old house the cottage is part of. Really well equipped in the cottage and we felt at home very soon. We visited the beautiful countryside and lots of 'old stones'!

What a perfect spot for our family holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
As soon as I saw this cottage online after an extensive search, I knew it was the right one -- and I was happily proved correct! Quaint and very "olde England" on the outside with all the mod cons on the inside. We were three generations coming over from the U.S. for 8 days and all of us loved the cottage, the grounds, and the Enford area. Mary was extremely easy to work with ahead of time. She made sure all my questions were answered and by the time I actually met her I already felt she was a friend. During our stay she and her family were nearby (their main house is joined to the cottage) but never obtrusive. When we had a question or minor concern she addressed it immediately.

For groceries we went to the Sainburys Local in Durlington, less than 10 minutes away, and they had everything we needed. Enjoyed several dinners in the Swan, where they welcomed us like locals. We took day trips to Salisbury, Marlborough, Swanage, the Cotswolds, and Avebury. Mom and I enjoyed market day in local towns while my brother and nephew took long walks (and met the local farmer and his bull named Teddy). The weather cooperated, I didn't wreck the car, and we always had our cozy nest to return to at the end of the day. What more could you ask for?

Perfection!

  • 5 out of 5
I cannot praise Enford House Cottage highly enough. Spotlessly clean, incredibly comfortable, equipped with everything you can possibly think of, and in a wonderfully peaceful location. The owners are lovely people, very friendly and welcoming, and have compiled a helpful and comprehensive folder full of details of places to eat, places to visit, places to shop, places to walk etc. The cottage itself is beautiful, very light and spacious, with lovely views from every window. There are lots of interesting places to visit nearby, including Salisbury Cathedral, Wilton House, and the Avebury Stones, and the Cotswolds are only just over an hour away. Negative points? Absolutely none! The cottage and its owners deserve every one of the five stars awarded – and then some. We only stayed from Monday – Friday (I wish we’d booked a fortnight!) but still managed to end our short holiday feeling refreshed, relaxed and revitalised. If you’re still undecided whether to book your break here I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed. This place is perfect.

Delightful stay in Wiltshire

  • 5 out of 5
Four friends from Canada had a most memorable stay in this beautiful country cottage. Nothing was too much trouble for our host, Mary and we recommend it without reservation. The cottage is spacious, beautifully furnished and perfectly located for visiting historic sights in central southern England.

Wonderful cottage in beautiful setting!

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage was beautiful. Our family of 6 stayed for a week, and we were very pleased with everything - very clean and well-maintained, the rooms and beds were very comfortable, and we loved having a bathroom for each bedroom! The grounds were absolutely gorgeous, and we enjoyed a few berries and apples! Mary graciously provided some eggs and milk when we arrived. We would recommend this cottage to anyone, and hope to return someday. It was the perfect location for day trips to Salisbury, Bath, Marlborough, and others.

Beautiful English cottage in an English village

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed at Enford cottage in May 2013 with my husband, two children (15 & 12), my parents and our dog, Marley. The booking procedure with Mary was easy and she was very helpful answering my endless questions. The cottage is lovely, with everything you could need. There is a downstairs bedroom with shower and toilet which was perfect for my parents as my dad has walking difficulties. The upstairs bedrooms were lovely. Lots of original features but with modern facilities. Mary and her family live in the house next door but were not intrusive in any way and happy to answer any question we had and advise on walks, places to visit, restaurants etc. The walled garden was perfect for Marley as he could be let out with no worries about him getting out and the games room was great for the kids as it gave them something to do while we were cooking etc. There was a table tennis table, table football and various other things in there to keep them amused. The cottage also had Wifi, much to the delight of my 15 year old who cannot be away from twitter for very long!! You can walk from the cottage up to the pub which is in a really quaint road with thatched cottages, a river, ducks - an idyllic English scene. We went for long walks up on the plains which Marley loved and also drove out a bit where there are numerous places to walk and visit. The garden was lovely to sit in so we spent the evenings at the cottage. We had beautiful weather so took advantage of the BBQ. The only negative is that there are no shops within walking distance so its a drive to get the morning papers and milk - but really not a hardship. Would thoroughly recommend the cottage to anyone and hope to return

Wonderful escape to the Country

  • 5 out of 5
What we loved:
* A cute but modernised, beautifully renovated cottage in a gorgeous tiny village
*Having 3 weeks to stay, which meant time to relax at the cottage
*Great email communication with Mary prior to arrival, and a warm welcome from the whole family, with the pefect blend of monitoring our stay without being intrusive. Our son loved playing with their kids.
*The centrality of the location for day trips in the south west UK - we were able to visit Bath; Bristol and the Cotswolds; Devon; and many closer attractions such as Salisbury, Avesbury, and Stonehenge. You need a car, but we just loved driving around the gorgeous countryside. (Not everything is open in winter eg. historic properties, however this didn't bother us.)
*Cleaners came weekly, which we appreciated
* For a family with teenagers, we loved having a TV in each bedroom - we realised how great this was, when we didn't have it at other accomodation!
* Comfy beds; kitchen well equipped - we self-catered for 3 weeks; for a longer stay we recommend heading straight to Tesco's at Amesbury!
* We thoroughly enjoyed a meal at the local pub
* We would highly recommend this property
