Curlew Cottage was completed in January 2013 to a high standard. The barn has retained some original features. Oak finishings, natural stone floors with underfloor heating. It is wonderfully light and spacious. Parking outside the door so no need to trek miles with your bags! 3 large bedrooms (2 x kings and a twin) and a large fully equipped kitchen/living area. A utility room with washing machine/dryer and separate downstairs W.C. A wonderful oak with glass balustrade staircase and walkway leads to 2 of the bedrooms, with the other bedroom on the ground floor. The king bedroom upstairs has a vaulted ceiling and amazing countryside views. TVs, DVD player, iPod/iPhone docking station, Microwave, Double Oven, Hob, Dishwasher and Underfloor Heating are just some of the mod cons. There are large areas of glazing throughout the rooms. Patio doors off the main living area and downstairs bedroom. 0.5m to The White Horse (which you can see from the barn) or 3 miles to Avebury. PLEASE NOTE MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY IS 6 GUESTS

About Madeleine White
Edward and Maddy bought the land and barns this property in situated on in 2001 and dreamed of converting this falling down courtyard into a rural retreat. 11 years later in 2013, our dream became reality and ideas from the many holiday cottages we visited for research along the way have been incorporated. We live 3 miles away with our 2 children and Edward farms the surrounding arable land and downland.
What makes this Barn unique
The wonderful views and tranquil setting in this rural location in the stunning county of Wiltshire.

Beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings.
This was the perfect destination for our weekend. Six friends and a dog stayed in this extremely comfortable and attractive cottage. Beautifully decorated and well stocked. Luxurious bedrooms. Stunning views. Very peaceful and away from roads. Direct access to the Ridgeway for wonderful walking. Very helpful and welcoming owners. Having purely a communal garden may need to be a consideration if you have dogs and/or children. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend, and can't recommend the cottage and the general area enough. Both are outstandingly beautiful.
Long weekend in countryside
As a party of 6 covering 3 generations, we feel we ask a lot of any accommodation. Downstairs bedroom perfect for OAPS, with no stairs to tackle and a shower,plenty of room upstairs with very big bedrooms and independent bathroom. Well equipped kitchen. Could not fault anything and beautifully clean. And a gorgeous location with good walking, but not too far from amenities.
Fantastic holiday cottage
The holiday cottage is set within the most stunning countryside views. The holiday cottage was of a high standard with everything we needed and would highly recommend for a family with small children. I would recommend this cottage and would love to visit again.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Please come again soon! Thank you for your review.
Great base for a walking weekend
We had a great stay in Curlew Cottage. It has been beautifully renovated with lovely big rooms and great views across the countryside.
We found some good walks close by and the cottage had everything we needed - it was just a shame we couldn't stay longer!
So pleased you had such an enjoyable stay. Thank you for your review, and come and stay again soon!
