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 owners live in the main house next door.
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. The entrance gate can be shut to make sure no children or dogs can get onto the village road. Wifi is available
For those with children, within the large garden (shared with the owners) there is a large trampoline, 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!). There is also a games room with a table tennis table and table football for all to enjoy
The village of Enford is in the Avon Valley - the village is totally 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.
