Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, Sleeps 6 + 1

With 3 ensuite bedrooms, and set within a beautiful thatched walled garden and with a fantastic pub 2 mins walk away 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 and Bath

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 as well as WiFi and a games room with Table Tennis, Pool Table and Table Football and a swing and slide in the garden

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 and there is a thatched games room for visitors to use with table tennis and table football and also a swing and slide in the garden and also a football goal. Wifi is available throughout the property.

The garden is completely enclosed and the entrance gate can be shut for those with young children or dogs.

The village of Enford is in the Avon Valley - the village is 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. And for those looking for a winter get away the cottage is very warm with central heating throughout, an electric log burner in the sitting room and double glazing so is very cosy!

About Mary Campbell

Simon and Mary Campbell, who own Enford House Cottage, live in the main house next door with their children. The picture shows the main part of the house in which they live. The cottage and main house have seperate entrances it feels very seperate although we are attached at the back. There is a trampoline and Swing and slide in the garden which all guests are welcome to use.

Mary Campbell purchased this cottage in 1969

Why Mary Campbell chose Wiltshire

My husbands parents bought the property when he was a baby and he grew up here and inherited it in 2005. His grandmother used to live in the cottage

What makes this cottage unique

With the thatched walled garden and special door in the wall to take you through to the churchyard Enford is a very special place. The cottage has a lovely feeling about it and everyone comments on how comfortable the beds are!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very happy holiday in this lovely cottage. Coming from belgium we were very excited by the walled garden and lovely old house the cottage is part of. Really well equipped in the cottage and we felt at home very soon. We visited the beautiful countryside and lots of 'old stones'!

Wonderful relaxing family break

A great cottage - well equipped with lots of toys and a games room. Wonderful owners and a pub with great food a short walk away. Plus very close to Stonehenge! All in all a wonderful location for a short family break with young children.

We Loved It Here!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a fantastic place to stay. We have a family of 6 (2 adults, 4 teens), there was plenty of room. The house is gorgeous and well maintained. Mary and her husband were so friendly and helpful. We would love to stay here again if we were ever in the area. Simply excellent.

Excellent week end venue

  • 4 of 5

We ( 3 couples ) have been staying at different cottages/houses twice a year for the past 16/17 years and found Enford House Cottage amongst the best that we have stayed at. Also, probably, the friendliest welcomes we have had!!! Will almost definitely come back. The position was great to explore the area from. Many thanks Mary! Philip & Chris Stant

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely long weekend at Enford cottage with our family of six adults.

I booked it for my husbands 50th birthday as he did a skydive at Old Sarum and it was only 20 min drive away.

The cottage was perfect for us and our dog. To have 3 bedrooms all with en suites was hard to find!

The facilities were excellent,clean and super comfy beds. The garden was great for our dog to run around in and the games room was most appreciated by the boys( well,men!)

We had a lovely meal at the village pub, the swan inn,which is a 2 minute walk away.

Cannot fault it and would love to stay again.

A wonderful experience. Well located in the midst of rolling, green hills yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was efficient and comfortable.

Well appointed with quality kitchen equipment and nice linens.

The home owners made us feel right at home and the beautiful grounds and plantings were a lovely plus.

Just behind the back wall a Norman Church from around 960 AD was a special attraction.

We will visit again on our next UK visit.

Picture Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

As described in the listing, Mary's Enford cottage was magnificent. It was a pleasure to arrive in England and drive to the beautiful countryside destination. The property itself was perfectly suited to our family of two adults and two adult children. Mary is an outstanding host and we highly recommend her home.
