Guestbook comments from the owner
No 3 Kingsbury Square is a great place for couples to escape for a holiday. The area is so peaceful and the landscape is extremely beautiful, yet still close enough for easy access to all of the local amenities.



The rooms are spacious, the décor is tasteful and elegant and my wife and I found it to be very comfortable.



I would definitely stay with Sandy again when visiting this part of the world and would recommend it to anyone looking for a taste of real England outside London.

Sandy Borchert purchased this apartment in 1998

The Apartment is within a Listed Historic (18th century) Town House. The restoration of the house was the subject of a 15 part TV documentary which followed Peter and Sandy's initial restoration of the house back in 2000. More recently the house won the prestigious Period Living Magazine's Town House of the year 2011 Award.

Three miles west of Salisbury,

right where the Wylye and

Nadder rivers meet, lies pretty

Wilton, an attractive market

town with a rich historical

heritage, one that stretches right back to the

8th century AD and the Anglo-Saxons. Wilton

was once the county town of Wiltshire, and

for a place of – what? Four thousand people?

– it has some remarkable claims to fame:

Alfred the Great once lost a major battle here

to advancing Danes; carpet-weaving expertise

allowed the town to give its name to perhaps

Britain’s most celebrated floor covering; while

over the years it’s been home to everything

from a major smallpox epidemic to the

scrambled egg and moustaches of Britain’s

military top brass.

The house sits in a particularly pretty

tree-lined square and is believed to

date from 1860 or thereabouts – the year that

Abraham Lincoln became US president and

Charles Dickens published his first chapters

of Great Expectations

ENGLISH VILLAGE PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this apartment was a delight. It was comfortable, spacious, well equipped and full of nice surprises. The bedding was perfect, the kitchen had everything we needed--with some whimsical touches--it was quiet, full of light and views of green. Sandy could not have been more warm and welcoming and made good recommendations for where to go in the area--which we followed and were not disappointed.

The village of Wilton was charming--I have always dreamt of spending in an English village and this fulfilled the dream with all the charm you would imagine, we only wished we could have stayed longer.

If your travel is to Salisbury, Wilton is only five-ten minutes by car and there is bus service to Salisbury.

Because Sandy was on holiday we had the extra-bonus of making arrangements through through her mother, who was equally wonderful and pleasure to know.

We have been renting frequently through vrbo for eight years and we highly recommend this home away from home. It really felt like home when we were there and we love to return someday.

SUPERB APARTMENT WITH A LOVELY HOST IN GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in Wilton, exhausted and jetlagged, to a warm and hospitable welcome from Sandy, whose directions to the apartment were spot on. The warmth of her welcome, including the bread, wine and cheese in the kitchen, made us feel at home straight away. The apartment itself is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The extensive folder of local information made orienting ourselves very easy and gave us lots of further ideas to enjoy our stay in Wiltshire.

We would thoroughly recommend staying here. The apartment is clean and spacious, the kitchen contains everything you need if you wish to self-cater (though we ate at the Pembroke Arms and the Greyhound Inn when we were in Wilton in the evenings, both recommended), the beds are comfortable and the lounge is a great place to relax in, with good views over the town.

There is easy access to Salisbury, Stonehenge, Winchester and other lovely places to visit. We wandered as far as Wells, the south coast (Swanage) and over to Hampshire from our base here, without having extensively long days.

We have no hesitation in recommending visitors stay in this apartment!

We spent 8 wonderful days in July at the Kingsbury Square flat. The apartment was lovely - comfortable, clean, spacious, cozy, nicely furnished with fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, excellent Wi-Fi & a bathtub. The flat was very quiet with only the sound of peaceful church bells. Wilton is a quaint village in the English countryside close to many beautiful cities and sights. The owners, Sandy & Peter were welcoming hosts. They live downstairs in this large, gorgeous home & work next door and were available & helpful when needed. We were greeted by Sandy who showed us around the flat, and bread, butter, honey & wine awaited us after a long flight, which was much appreciated. We especially enjoyed having a drink with Sandy & Peter in their lovely garden sharing stories about our lives and travels. Wilton was a great place to base ourselves to explore the region. While you may not need a car for your stay, we rented a car for the week and enjoyed driving around the English countryside - it takes a couple of days to get used to driving on the left but then becomes second nature. Highlights of the trip included nearby Salisbury, which is very pretty, lots of shopping and the gothic cathedral is stunning; exploring the Cotswold’s region (loved the Slaughters!); Stonehenge (definitely worthwhile - consider the tour with Pat Shelley - we didn't do it because of scheduling but it is probably worth it); Oxford, very pretty city (probably better to go during the week - we went on a Sunday & it was very crowded but still wroth it); and beautiful Bath - we wished we had more time there - not to be missed! In all our travels throughout Europe, we were especially struck by the friendliness of the people here. As vegetarians & needing a gluten-free diet, having a kitchen was important and we ate most meals at the flat, but the Brits are very progressive, and there were good restaurant options, and the health food stores & Waitrose grocery store in Salisbury had everything we needed. A special treat for North Americans is the Guernsey butter - there's nothing like it! We've tried to find it in Toronto, Canada but to no avail. We would highly recommend the apartment & visiting this area. Thank you Sandy & Peter for offering us a lovely stay in Wiltshire!

BEAUTIFUL AND CONVENIENT TO EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
Sandy and Peter's apartment is a lovely, modern, spacious spot for a fabulous vacation! In a very beautiful old mansion, the flat exudes both charm and modernity, and one can walk to restaurants, grocery shops, bank, bus. We came to see the historical sites in and around Salisbury, and we found the Borchert's flat ideal. 10 minutes from Salisbury (we actually walked it....in 90 minutes) where we took the train to Bath and Oxford. Lovely footpaths, also in Wilton, with views of rolling fields. We hope to return!

AN ABSOLUTELY CHARMING AND GORGEOUS HOME IN A LOVELY QUAINT VILLAGE!

  • 5 of 5
Where to begin?! We arrived quite pooped;) having travelled over 14 hours to find an absolutely gorgeous home, it felt like I was at my own home! Sandy welcomed us like long lost friends. She even had left out baguettes, cheese, jam and drinks! The home is super cosy, comfy couch with the living room having views of the whole town and gardens below, it's truly like out of a magazine! The bedrooms have wonderful sheets, down blankets, comfy pillows (I travel with my own pillow and didn't use it!); the kitchen is well stocked and perfect for cooking all your meals should you so desire and if not, you simply walk honestly about 20 steps to a local pub with great food and cold beer! The bathroom is big, tub and shower, etc. my two adult kids stayed in the second bedroom and were very comfortable-it boasts a decorative fireplace and lovely art. We spent two days just enjoying Wilton-there is quite a bit to do and wish we had stayed longer -Salisbury is only 3 km away and again, loads to do there as well. All in all, s perfect home and yes, we will be back!!!

CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT OUR STAY HERE!

  • 5 of 5
This is one of my absolutely favorite places I've ever stayed! The apartment itself is roomy, beautifully decorated, fitted out with everything you could need/want (and if you still want/need more, Sandy can work miracles), neat as a pin, and located perfectly for those who both love to stay cosy and close to home, or those who love to roam the roads looking for that perfect pub, antique shop or castle. From the minute I inquired about booking to the moment we pulled the door behind us as we regretfully departed, the entire rental experience was A+++. Sandy is a delight, thoroughly professional and a top-notch problem-solver. Just as a note of warning to those who might have mobility issues (young or old): this is a 3rd floor apartment (which gives you total privacy and great views!), so keep that firmly in mind.
