About Claire Ashley

Claire Ashley purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Claire Ashley chose Wiltshire
We have lived on The Green in Aldbourne for 14 years, and the addition of The Coach House has enabled us to offer guest accommodation. Aldbourne is a fantastic place to visit, whether for walking, riding, golf, crop circle spotting or visiting friends and family in the village. It is also an excellent base for cycling. It's only 10 minutes from the M4 and yet the Ridgeway path is on our door step with miles of uninterrupted countryside.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Coach House is located in the centre of Aldbourne, so has the ease of being a few minutes walk from all the facilities. We are just moments away from the church, post office, village green and pond... The Coach House offers comfortable and stylish accommodation right in the heart of Aldbourne.

This was our second stay at the apartment in the past six months. The apartment is compact but has great facilities and is in a very central location in the village. The host is really friendly and has obviously taken great care when planning the layout and choosing the fixtures and fittings, which are of a very high standard. We would not hesitate to stay again.
Nicely presented studio apartment.
Nicely decorated and furnished (great bed!) studio apt with broadband. Claire was welcoming and helpful. Handy for Oxford, Bath, Avebury and several other small towns and villages in this rural area.
You’ve gotta stay here!
A wonderful loft style apartment in an interesting village. The decor is comfortable and relaxing. Enough kitchen equipment to make a light meal. Amazing bathroom. The most sumptuous bed we slept in during our three weeks in the UK ! Two village pubs for meals and drinks and a store with fresh bread delivery every morning.
Claire was a great host and most kind to us.
Tasteful, well thought out studio apartment for two.
First impressions were lasting. This studio has everything you need, clean, comfortable and private. We enjoyed watching village life from above by as we drank our tea in the morning. Aldbourne has everything you need, super country walks, pubs, chippy, supermarket, post office and a hairdressers. Only downside for us personally was there was no washer or dryer, but all other amenities necessary for a lovely stay were there. Thanks so much, we hope to return one day!
Thank you for such a lovely review...always nice to know we're getting it right, and so glad you enjoyed your stay; you're right about watching village life from above, The Coach House feels like it gives you a little window into the village, but privacy at the same time!
Thank you for looking after everything, and leaving it so tidy...hope you are able to return in the future.
Fabulous apartment in a wonderful location
What a wonderful place to spend a week! Located in a charming town and close to Hungerford, the site of the wedding I attended. The apartment kitchen was perfect, with everything one could want or need. The bed was luxurious and the shower was terrific. WiFi worked great too. Claire has prepared lots of information about where to eat and shop and what to do in the area.
Spent two days and a night in London by parking in a huge garage in Uxbridge and taking the tube. Enjoyed a wonderful bike ride along the canal, starting in Brighton-on-Avon at the bike rental and biking to Bath and back.
Very easy access to major highways making traveling around the area a breeze. Hope I have a reason to return to the west of London soon and would certainly stay here again. Recommended highly!!! Thank you Claire!
Beautiful little apartment
Absolutely lovely place, extremely well appointed and maintained. Perfect for a couple.
Dear Gemma, Thank you for the lovely comments, it's always great to get some feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Coach House. Kindest regards, Claire
