About the property

Newly Converted Cosy Getaway With Use Of Swimming pool And Tennis Court

Mayfield bed and breakfast is a popular bed and breakfast in the area and we have now added 'Mayflower' as a holiday let. It is situated in the beautiful large garden and has its own private terrace and BBQ area, made with brilliant craftsmanship and fully equipped modern kitchen.

There is a free-to-view 42' television and a warming wood burner for the colder months and of course central heating.

Although it is one open plan living area it still feels warm and cozy and the modern shower room just sets off the contemporary style of Mayflower.

There is a tennis court and swimming pool in the grounds which can be used with prior consent from the owners.

This is the perfect area to use as a springboard to visit all the wonders of Wiltshire. You can visit bath, Oxford, Salisbury and the Cotswold all within an hour. The stone of ave bury and Stonehenge are nearby. And the wonderful houses of Wilton, Bowood, Lacock and Highworth are also a must.

If you want a real mystery then come and search for crop circles because this is the absolute centre of this extraordinary phenomenon.

Cycle along the Kennet and Avon canal, relax by the pool and have a game of tennis. This all makes for a perfect relaxing holiday for two.

About Angela Orssich

I have always loved Spain and used to live there many years. So when the opportunity arose to buy a house there I found the beautiful village of Canillas de Aceituno and built Casa Beni.

I also have a Bed and Breakfast and a holiday let in Wiltshire so I am kept pretty busy and don't have enough time to spend the time I would like to visit Spain so I rent it out instead so that others can enjoy the beautiful views, the smells and the sounds of Canillas de Aceituno.

Angela Orssich purchased this cottage in 2006

The perfect country get away!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a perfect place for me to stay located in the quiet wilstshire country side! I found it ideal whilst I'm working in the area with more than everything you would need inside! (Particularly the log fire!) I can imagine it being even better in the summer! Definetley recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review - and a lovely one too. We have really enjoyed having you staying in Mayflower. You will just have to come back and test it in the summer - hopefully when it will be warm and sunny.

Wiltshire is a very beautiful rural county. From Mayflower one can visit Avebury, Stonehenge, the Kennet and Avon Canal and the chalk White Horses. There are also several historical houses to visit including, Wilton House and Bowood. There are fantastic vaste children's play grounds in these two houses. Longleat is only 45 minutes away.
