We had a lovely stay, spending 4 days in the cottage. Patricia welcomed us with a smile. The property was spotless and Patricia had kindly provided some essentials (milk, bread, tea, coffee, etc) so we didn't need to rush out to buy anything. Well heated, perfect location and we slept very soundly. Thank you Patricia!

Thank you Patricia for a lovely 4 day break at Wheelwrights. Spotlessly clean and toasty warm and fab to have the train station just along the road for a day out in Salisbury. Just the break we needed.
