    “We are so happy we booked to stay at this beautiful cottage!”

    We didn’t want to come home. So many details are thought of here, we were really well looked after by the lovely Debbie & Tim and there wasn’t one fault with our stay. The cottage is so nice and cosy. It has everything you need in it, including a very generous welcome hamper! The garden area is perfect, the area is lovely, we loved the chickens

The property

Sitting in the heart of Malmesbury, Wiltshire is this idyllic, single-storey holiday home of Orchard House Cottage.

A delightful base for two couples or a family of four's break in the Cotswolds, Orchard House Cottage rests on the same site as a handy cattery, so you can bring along your feline friends, as well as being home to chickens and ducks for you to visit.

After parking up in one of the off-road spots, progress inside to find a well-presented kitchen/diner, where a range of quality appliances await, so the chef of the group can easily rustle up home-cooked delights, to be enjoyed at the four-seater dining table.

After dining together, progress to the sitting room and sink back into the sumptuous sofa or armchair whilst the TV entertains you and the woodburning stove warms you up.

When sleep calls, retire to one of the two delightful bedrooms, a double and a twin, both of which feature zip/linked beds, along with handy storage space and contemporary décor throughout.

The family bathroom rests nearby and hosts a p-shaped bath for you to relax your muscles after hiking through the nearby Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Make the most of the fabulous site and wander down to the charming chickens, embark on a stroll through the idyllic lawns during the day, or settle down in front of the flickering flames of the fire pit as you marvel at the stars above.

Get acquainted with your surroundings by visiting the Radnor Arms across the road, and there is a bus stop there to take you directly into Malmesbury, where the delights of The Smoking Dog and The Kings Arms serve up hearty meals, the River Avon and Tetbury Avon offer riverside strolls and The Abbey House Garden offers tours of its stunning gardens.

Why not visit Bowood House, or travel to Westonbirt, home to the iconic Westonbirt Arboretum, where a plethora of walking trails amidst the stunning scenery along with an esteemed golf course can be found?

Venture to the market town of Chippenham to find more outdoor delights, including Vincients Wood and John Coles Park, along with the historic Chippenham Museum.

The thriving spots of Tetbury, Cirencester and Bath are within reach and offer even more attractions to experience.

Choose Orchard House Cottage for a holiday to look back on in years to come.

Please note: The check in on the 26th of May 2023 is 5pm, one this one occasion

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location

MALMESBURY

Chippenham 11 miles; Cirencester 13 miles; Bath 23 miles; Tetbury 5 miles.

Dating back to the Iron Age and reputedly the oldest borough in England, the pretty market town of Malmesbury is located on a hilltop in the southern Cotswolds. Malmesbury is steeped in history and offers visitors over 400 listed buildings, a 15th century Market Cross, a ruined 7th century Benedictine abbey, an annual carnival and many independent shops, cafes and traditional pubs. Abbey House Gardens, home to 'The Naked Gardeners' can also be found in Malmesbury (Note: The gardeners are clothed during normal opening hours) and the annual Womad Music Festival is close by at Charlton Park. The area offers many country houses, including Rodmarton Manor and Gardens, and Chavenage House, a fine example of a Cotswold manor unchanged for 400 years. Just a short drive away is The Cotswold Water Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering 40 square miles and offering a wide range of activities, including boating, waterskiing, fishing, cycling, golf and horse riding, plus Bath, Cirencester and Tetbury are all within easy reach and well worth a visit.
