Just the right place for seeing various parts of Wiltshire. This is a comfortable cottage with everything you need. It is situated in a quiet village with two pubs and a small shop selling basic needs. Longleat House and Safari Park are nearby. The only improvement possibly would be a dining table and chairs for 3 in the kitchen, and in the bathroom, somewhere to hang the showerhead over the bath whilst showering! But this didn't spoil our holiday at all and we would definitely go there again. It was clean and warm and that is important.

We enjoyed our week down in Hindon despite the very cold weather. The cottage soon warmed up to snugness with the very efficient log burner.The kitchen contained everything we needed and the bed was comfortable. The only thing we felt was needed was a telephone landline as mobile communication was hopeless.
Clam, peaceful setting central for places we wanted to visit

We had a delightful break in the cottage. Hindon is a very pretty village and the surrounding countryside has so much to offer. The only downside was that we only booked a short break! Wished it had been longer.

WE had a great week at Rose cottage. It was so cosy and very clean. The garden was so peaseful and we liked to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and watch the stars in the clear sky in the evening.. We will go back..
Enjoyable but limiting

Small cottage with small rooms but nicely fitted out. LACK OF WINDOWS IN THE REAR, THE SKYLIGHTS HELPED but fresh air and light was a real miss. Biggest disappointment was no rear garden.
However it was a lovely village in a spot easy to find and easy to get to many fabulous areas and tourist towns and places of interest. I wouldn't book that cottage again though because of the reasons outlined above.
The caretaker lady was very helpful and charming.
A Lovely hidden Gem

This lovely little cottage was our haven for a week in November, with its beatiful log burning fire and delightful decor we had a really cosy time.
Location is great for local pubs and great walks and National Trust properties in the area.
The cottage was clean and really well equipped, definatly worth a visit
