Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at Hinton Lodge. Quiet and rural are in fact the best words to describe the location. Perfect for visiting the area's assets. Lovely inns around, but making reservations is advised. Very useful folder in the cottage with lots of practical information.

According to the description, there is a Dolce Gusto coffee maker, but this is not true. We bought capsules in advance and regret it now.

But overall great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted that you have had a nice time at Hinton Lodge and are very grateful to you for taking the time to review our property. We would like to apologise for your disappointment with the lack of coffee machine. We had to remove it from the cottage as it was leaking and were hoping to fix it, but haven't managed. We will buy a new one as soon as possible. Once again please accept our apologies for this misrepresentation in our literature and thank you for pointing it out to us. All the very best, Clea

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property and location. The inside was immaculate and a 3 year old/5 yr old were enchanted. The bedrooms are right off the main sitting room, so early sleepers will get telly/living room noise, but that need not be a problem. Very well kitted out for 2 grown ups with 2 small children.

Great cottage and super location

  • 5 of 5

Hinton cottage met all our expectations. Arrival and departure went seamlessly, the cottage was well equipped and the owners and support staff were very friendly, including the very impressive horses, who would greet us each morning. The beds were very comfortable and the curtains blocked the early morning sun if we wanted a few sleep ins. The circular archetecture of the house was unique and the many windows allowed wonderful 360 degree views of the countryside.The location was tucked away from the busy roads but central enough to allow easy access to all the sights in Wiltshire.We would love to come back again.

A lovely quiet, secluded and rural location

  • 4 of 5

A lovely quiet, secluded and rural location ideally placed for us to visit friends in the Bath, Westbury, Trowbridge area. The cottage is also well located for visits to Salisbury, Stonehenge, parts of Dorset, and Somerset. Clea was wonderful to deal with, our booking and e mails were always dealt with promptly. We are looking forward to staying here again the next time we visit our friends in the UK.

Quirky lodge in a fantastic setting

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights with our 16 month old and had a great time. The lodge is quite well suited to young children as all on one level. The weather was atrocious but the fireplace helped! The lodge was clean and well equipped. Overall it was very good value for the price paid and we would consider staying again in the Spring or Summer time for a change. It is well located for exploring Wiltshire which was our aim!

A wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Being so close to Longleat and Bradford on Avon we managed to have a wonderful relaxing weekend and see everything we wanted to. The property was great and suited our small family.
