  • “I'd like to have given 5 stars, but held back because:1.”

    there was the little difficulty of the step in the corridor that we kept tripping over; 2. it was difficult/impossible to get out of the property except by car. Also I didn't realise that we would be so close to a main road (should have checked, I suppose), so traffic noise disturbed me - but not others in the party. ...

    there was the little difficulty of the step in the corridor that we kept tripping over; 2. it was difficult/impossible to get out of the property except by car. Also I didn't realise that we would be so close to a main road (should have checked, I suppose), so traffic noise disturbed me - but not others in the party. I must say, though, that the property is beautifully furnished and equipped. Lovely large garden, and very secure for a dog. Lots of nice outdoor furniture, and indoor games. Good TVs. Nice having separate places people could sit.

The property

Found on the fringes of Malmesbury, an historic market town in Wiltshire, is The Little Paddock, a charming detached dwelling offering eight guests a special holiday home.

Settled on the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty makes The Little Paddock ideal for a group or family seeking walks, cycling opportunities and visiting quaint English villages and towns, comprising a main single-storey house and a first-floor annexe over the separate garage.

Come together in the wonderfully social space of the kitchen/diner, where the large glass doors can be opened up in summer while you gather at the dining table for a hearty breakfast and food can be prepared using the quality appliances found in the sleek kitchen and utility area, including three electric ovens, an induction hob, and a huge fridge/freezer.

Delight in a more formal dining experience in the separate dining room, toasting to your wonderful stay, before moving the conversation into the tranquil sitting room, admiring the quaint pastel colour palette used and sinking into an armchair or the large sofa, with a Smart TV to entertain.

Come away from the excitement of the group in the pretty sun room, with sofas to relax on and another Smart TV, you can watch your favourite show or simply cosy up with a good book.

A stunning garden awaits outside which your canine companions are sure to love along with any little ones, with a fabulous permanent gazebo to offer shelter as the evening draws in and becomes cooler, you can flick on the outdoor heater and star gaze.

Discover three beautiful bedrooms to choose from on the ground floor, with two super-king-size bedrooms, one with a Smart TV and the other able to be a twin room on request, sharing a gorgeous bathroom complete with a roll-top bath and a walk-in shower.

Feel refreshed within the shower room before snuggling under the covers in the king-size bedroom, or for a couple seeking a quiet spot, settle in the first-floor annexe bedroom where a king-size bed awaits along with a TV and a fabulous en-suite shower room.

Children and adults alike can relax in the games room which is fully equipped with a snooker/pool table, dart board and arcade games machine.

For the more energetic there is a small gym with cross trainer, rowing machine and exercise mats.

Venture into the lovely market town of Malmesbury not only to find all you need on a self-catered stay, but to discover the rich history that awaits you, with Malmesbury known to be England's oldest borough and home to the magnificent 12th century Malmesbury Abbey.

The town boasts a host of independent and artisan shops and traditional pubs, along with cafés and supermarkets, so you can pick up all the essentials and maybe even some souvenirs to bring home.

Explore The Abbey House Gardens where elaborate flower, tree and shrub displays are sure to impress, or head to the Athelstan Museum to learn more about the local history.

The bustling town of Cirencester is another fabulous day out, with fascinating Roman heritage to be discovered at the Cirencester Amphitheatre and the Corinium Museum.

Take walks through Malmesbury along the River Avon or head into the Cotswolds for plenty of beautiful walks, with the Cotswold Way National Trail being a perfect place to start, whilst cyclists can delight in a wealth of routes to choose from too, all whilst taking in the stunning English countryside.

Stop in the quaint town of Tetbury and visit their Tetbury Police Museum & Courtroom before finding somewhere to stop for an afternoon treat, whilst the bustling town of Stroud is another delightful destination with much to offer.

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.
