“Home from Home”
Reviewed October 23, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a lovely suprise when we walked into the Milk House, it was like the Tardis only better! our 2 scotties could run freely and safely in the garden, Rebecca was a wonderful host and Rachel had left everything spick and span for our arrival. Weather was fabulous, if your a fisherman there is a lovely lake nearby across the road to the Railway Tavern in the nearby village. We would definately stay there again if we were in the area, only wishes would have been somewhere to hang clothes in the bedrooms, for a week living out of a suitcase was not ideal and made the room look messy, there are a few hooks but not that practical, a hanging rail and a few drawers would be welcome especially in the main bedroom, a hook on the back of the bathroom doors would be useful and a bread knife in the kitchen or electric knife, otherwise it is so well equipped you want for nothing. A very special treat to have stayed there. We tried to support the local pub that had only just opened but sadly they never did food on the nights we tried to eat so cannot comment on the experience there but the Three Daggers is a great option.

Thank you Rebecca and Rachel for a surperb stay at Milk House, even though the weather was a bit hit and miss we all had a great holiday and the house was ideal for all weathers. The house is so much bigger than it looks on the web and felt very spacious for the seven of us. We had a lovely welcome and everything we needed in the house. The house has been done to a very high standard and was an ideally placed for longleat, cheddar gorge, Stonehenge and Avebury. Thank you once again we had a brill family holiday.

“Perfect house and location to spend a family holiday”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My family recently spent a week at the Milk House. Rebecca was a delight to deal with from booking right through to a prompt return of deposit - she could not have been more helpful. We found the Milk House to be very clean and extremely comfortable place to stay. The large kitchen is ideal for a family. The house is set in a beautiful location within walking distance of an archetypal Wiltshire village and a nice pub. There are many tourist attractions nearby including Salisbury Plain, the White Horse at Amesbury, Longleat etc. Many beautiful National Trust houses are an easy drive away. We have no hesitation in recommending the Milk House - you will not be disappointed!

“Beautiful house in lovely surroundings”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at the milk house for a week in July. We were very lucky to have lovely hot weather all week. The house is lovely and homely with everything you need. My little boy who is 2 and a half loved the toys especially the train set and also enjoyed the huge trampoline in the garden. All the bedrooms are lovely and comfy my only problem with them was the fourth bedroom where my little boy was going to stay was too far away from our bedroom it would have meant he walked through the utility room, kitchen and sitting room on his own in the night if he needed us. We ended up putting the matress for his bed on the floor in our bedroom which was fine. The sitting room is really cosy and the kitchen was great and huge with everything you need and a lovely big dining table. We used the table and chairs in the garden more as we had a few bbq's during our stay! The house is in a great setting with the farm so close, Tony the farmer is really friendly and let us watch him feed the sheep one evening and my little boy sit on the tractor which he thought was great! There are no chickens anymore though which was a shame. Lunch was eaten at the three daggers pub which was lovely and the farm shop attached to it is really lovely too and they do yummy cakes! We would definitely re-visit the milk house maybe in the winter when we could use the wood burner.

“The epitomy of comfort and taste”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

From the moment we booked Rebecca could not have been more helpful. Her communication was great, and the downloadable information sheets were very helpful and comprehensive.
On arrival, the first impression of The Milk House is that it appears a little small, but as soon as you open the door that impression is dispelled. This is a property that keeps on giving.
The sitting room is very comfortably furnished, the spacious kitchen diner is very well equipped, all three bedrooms are of a good size and the beds are very comfortable. The shower room is a delight.
Overall, Milk House has been furnished and decorated with a great deal of taste; Rebecca obviously has a great eye.
Rebecca greeted us on arrival and made sure we were made to feel welcome. She had loads of great tips on things to do and where to eat etc and made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
All that remains for me to say is, thank you. We will be back for more !

“Beautiful cottage, gorgeous and comfortable interior...”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I recently stayed at this cottage for a week with my family, parents and dog. I got all the information needed beforehand and was pleasantly surprised on how beautiful the cottage and surroundings were. The interior was beautifully presented and at a very high standard. It also has all basics included for us to settle in immediately. Becca, the owner popped in within the hour of us arriving to check everything was OK and answer any questions. There were loads of lovely walks from the cottage and a great local pub, George & Dragon, which was a short walk from the cottage, was very dog friendly and the food and hosts were great too. All in all, it was a perfect location for 'pootling' and for trips further afield like Salisbury & Bath. Would highly recommend.

“Extremely comfortable holiday cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My husband and I spent a week at the end of April at the Milk House with my eldest daughter and her family. We loved it and have since missed enjoying time spent together in such a well appointed holiday home.
My husband and daughter, the cooks for the holiday, were very pleased and impressed with the well equipped kitchen. Chris, my son-in-law had read up on the facilities and used the ipod docking system in the kitchen to share some of his favourite and very eclectic music choices that we all enjoyed listening to while playing card games or eating around the wonderful kitchen table that became the centre of our times together at the Milk House. My grandson hogged the T V (when allowed) to play games on the PS3 and my 3yr old granddaughter played for hours with the great selection of games and toys, that also distracted her from her itchy chicken pox - Yes, the poor thing started with spots on day one of the holiday!
Andy and I were very pleased to find the cross country direct route to the 3 Daggers Brewery Tap for fabulous real ale and farm shop. We also made good use of the George and Dragon – a short walk away and we enjoyed a delicious meal at another nearby pub the Bell in Great Cheverell.
I was delighted to discover a ready supply of Rhubarb in the garden that Rebecca (Owner) was very happy for me to use to turn into a Crumble.
The farmer was only to happy to show us the sheep and lambs and we got the chance to feed one of triplets whose mother didn’t have enough milk to go around all three.
The weather was not kind to us apart from one glorious day and a couple of sunny evenings when we were able to sit out and the kids made good use of the trampoline in the orchard. But we all agreed that the comfort of our surrounding s in The Milk House more than made for the disappointing weather and if we had to be stuck inside we were in the best place!
