Lovely home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved our short stay at Hinton Lodge! The home was clean, beds were comfortable, and the setting was amazing. It was very convenient for touring Stonehenge, Bath, Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon, but was also a very quiet and peaceful place to be at the end of the day. Take the footpath across the street for a wonderful countryside walk.

Victorian cottage in rural location

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped cottage, providing all the essentials for a pleasant stay. There's even an open fire for chilly evenings. The hosts very thoughtfully provided items such as milk, toilet rolls, coffee pods, few tea bags until you could buy your own. Even a bottle of wine was available, which we have to say was so delicious that we need to find where to buy it. The location was rural and quiet with great views around. We explored Somerset, Wiltshire and the Cotswolds so it was a convenient base from which to travel. We will certainly want to return one day.

Beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Hinton Lodge was the perfect home base for exploring the area with our two grandsons. It has the ambiance we were looking for and the journal had other interesting sites we weren't aware of. Wonderful memories.

A peaceful retreat in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed here five years ago, and on our return this month were thrilled to find it just as we remembered. Spacious, clean, and oh so quiet! Surrounded by horse pastures and woods, it offers a welcome respite after a busy day of touring Wiltshire. The location is great, being an easy drive away from so many sites: Stonehenge, Avebury, Highclere Castle ("Downton Abbey"), Bath, Glastonbury etc. And just down the road is the charming village of Steeple Ashton, with its village shop that still makes fresh-baked croissants every morning. We truly hated to leave.

Magical cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent two special days at Hinton Lodge. The location was perfect - close to so many places we wanted to visit, such as Bath and Stonehenge, and situated in a gorgeous setting amidst fields and bridle paths. The house was comfortable and charming, well-equipped for cooking, and we made good use of the fireplace one night. We slept very well in the beds, and appreciated the peacefulness of this lovely home. Our host and housekeeper were very responsive and helpful. We highly recommend this property.

Really lovely, well equipped cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Hinton Lodge for a couple of nights over the Christmas period. We were very impressed by the standard of the cottage. The cottage is very well equipped too, with everything we needed for our short break. The only slight aspect we found to be a small issue was storing food/drink as the kitchen is small and is already full with everything. This didn't cause us an issue as we were only staying a short time but longer stays may need to consider this. Hinton lodge is a great base for exploring Longleat and surrounding areas. Overall would thoroughly recommend.
