    “The cottage was lovely - really lovely interior and quality touches like good duvets and bedding.”

    To make it perfect would be bigger towels and to sort out the temperature on the shower!

Thenford Cottages

The Thenford Cottages are Grade II listed buildings with character and charm running throughout. With history believed to be dating back to the 18th century intertwined with the contemporary interior inside, the cottages offer you everything you could possibly need to enjoy your self-catered stay. Located within the tranquil lands of Kilmington not far from the River Wylye, they're within an ideal destination for walking, cycling, nature spotting, and all important picnicking in beautiful settings. With Mere just 4.4 miles away, head here for a day full of action and fun, with a selection of local shops, the breath-taking historical landmark of Castle Hill, its own museum, and wide variety of places to eat, it boasts a wide array of attractions for a small town. To take in even more of the scenery of Wiltshire, head to Cley Hill, a short but steep walk well-worth the effort when you reach the top and observe the lands that surround you, once part of the Longleat estate, it now stands as a popular area to walk, cycle, and run with locals and tourists from all over. Nearby you will stumble across the newest National Park in England; South Downs, explore it from the sky while soaring by plane, hot air balloon, or even paraglider, or take a kite to the sky with the kids for a day out full of fun for all the family. To enrich yourself in history, Longleat House, the seat of the Marquesses of Bath lets you explore the stately home by house tours, or venture through the formal gardens, with history stretching back to the 1st Viscount Weymouth, this makes the perfect spot for any culture vulture. Longleat House also hosts a variety of events throughout the year, including The Festival of Light, Sky Safari and An Australian Summer. Stourhead house and its world famous gardens are just 2 miles away and in Autumn the spectacular display of burnished leaves and various shades of orange, red and yellow are not to be missed. With brilliant routes to London and surrounding bustling areas, the cottages of Thenford make a wonderful stay for all ages and interests.
