Victorian former rectory
Large family house in beautiful Wiltshire close to ancient Savernake Forest , the market town of Marlborough and easy driving to Salisbury, Bath and o…
We got a bit turned around in the dark and were stressed from our first day of driving in Britain so we were pretty frazzled by the time we arrived. Anabel quickly responded to our questions, and then when we met Liz and David at the house we were immediately put at ease. Liz gave us a tour and was so welcoming and sweet. She even helped us plan our itinerary for the next day. She provided a lovely breakfast and made us feel so welcome. The home itself is beautiful, secluded, and so unique. I felt like I was staying in Pride and Prejudice.
We could not recommend this place more. The location was perfect, a short walk to Marlborough or to the local pub. The accommodation was very spacious and comfortable. And finally Anabel and her family made us all (dog included) feel very welcome.
Thank you for that lovely review Amy, it was a pleasure to meet you both and I feel rather guilty that you so kindly stripped your beds which was incredibly helpful with Liz now getting a whole new hip after her fall and me scurrying around trying to organise things and go away tomorrow. Do come again any time.
Annabel was also incredibly generous, welcoming, and hospitable. She gave us a lift into Marlborough and even picked us up from Pewsey Station when taxis were in short supply. The home itself is beautiful- full of extraordinary objects and paintings, and the room was very clean and comfortable. I feel grateful to have stayed here.
It was an absolute treat to stay at Anabel's house in the generous space allocated to guests. Her welcome was genuinely warm and she was keen to ensure that we would be comfortable. The accommodation is a treasure-trove of eclectic art and much-loved pieces from many parts of the world, not to mention the numerous fascinating books. Our visit was sadly brief but I would thoroughly recommend Anabel's place for a more extended stay and hope to return before too long.
After a heinous journey from London , full of stop start traffic , we were delighted to be so very warmly welcomed by Anabel and her wonderfully friendly dogs. Our room(s) at the top of the house were self contained and extremely comfortable. We had the best sleep ever this will definitely be our first choice stay when visiting our friends in Marlborough.
