Flying by the seat of our pants on first trip to Britain, we stumbled upon this one-of-a-kind find! Despite the troubles of this website's glitches, we persevered and had an in-between 3 night stay at the Old Woodstore.
Our hosts, Soo and Rob, we convivial, informative and the kind of folks that one rarely has the good fortune to meet. They stocked us up so well that we had leftovers when we left! And we didn't shop once! We ate all 3 nights at the pub across the street, which was absolutely the best food of a 17 day trip. Even made 'honorary locals' and were turfed at closing time!
The private annex is quirky, watch your head, 'liberal loo', french press for coffee, wonderful tv, spotty wifi (you're in the country!), lovely shower, comfy bed, your own little garden amid wildflowers and smells of wood. Sheep to the rear of us, cows to the front. Fairytale thatched cottages and postcard boughs. Magic. Narrow roads and wrong turns to the right places. A guided tour in Tisbury 2000 year old church by the caretaker himself just for me. See old Wardour Castle on a rainy day. Idyllic. The whole experience was absolutely delightful.
Thank you Soo and Rob, what a pleasure it was!
We had such a lovely chilled time at this beautiful cottage, it was so clean, peaceful and the owners were so wonderful and couldn't of been more helpful. There's plenty of walking with stunning views and a very cute pub just a stone throw away which we visited and the food was very good too....... both working in London we found this place perfect for time out from the busy crazy life we lead, I managed to sleep until 10am when I am use to being up at 6am, so to me this was BLISS. We will definitely be going back over the winter to enjoy their cute little wood burner.... to do some more sleeping :-). Not forgetting they have a very cute doggy who welcomes you, always puts a smile on our faces :-).
Thank you both so much and see you again soon, we will be in touch to check out my birthday dates with you.

Thank you to Soo & Rob. every need thought through. They went that extra mile to cater for my food intolerances.

Pub across the way, lovely atmosphere & tasty food,we had roast leg of lamb & all the trimmings. We will be back. Thanks again
My Partner and I were looking for a place away from the London New Year rush, so we decided to stay at the Old Woodstore.
This little hidden gem did just the trick, unfortunately we had rainy weather but we enjoyed staying in the cottage by the fire, cooking, relaxing and watching movies.
We went on a couple of walks around the countryside which is stunning. We also went into Salisbury, which is only a short drive away.
The cottage is cosy, beautiful and exceeded our expectation, we throughly enjoyed our stay.
Soo and Rob are lovely hosts and their dog Ruby is so sweet, we wish we could have stayed longer, as we didn't want to go back to London.
We will definitely come back and highly recommend staying at the Old Woodstore.
Thank you for our stay.

Beautiful cottage in the middle of a picturesque and quiet little hamlet. The cottage was exactly what we'd hoped for - very homely and cosy, perfect for a weekend break away. Soo was extremely helpful and welcoming on our arrival, showing us around the property and where everything was. Lovely big sofa, a great DVD collection, well equipped kitchen and yummy breakfast hamper - there was everything we needed and lots more! And the pub across the road served great food too!
We had a wonderful 4 days staying at the Old Woodstore. Soo and Rob were excellent hosts, very welcoming on arrival (including much-appreciated breakfast supplies) and both had lots of great suggestions of good walking routes and pubs nearby (of which there are many!)
The property inside is even cosier than the pictures let on, and the garden was lovely to sit out in on sunny afternoons. Lots of nice touches like sun loungers in the garden, a good DVD collection, lots of maps and even a pair of binoculars for walks!
The Nadder valley is hands down one of the prettiest places we have visited in England - we hope to be back again sometime soon!
