Wiltshire holiday cottages, sleeps 6

Four star graded accommodation placed in a rural retreat on our farm in the centre of Wiltshire with two and three bedroomed cottages that make use of renewable energy wherever possible.

We have been awarded a Green Tourism Badge for our efforts and have just completed installing Solar Photovoltaic panels on one of our farm buildings that will produce electricity for the cottages and the farm.

Our cottages have been tastefully converted from former farm buildings and we have constantly updated and improved them to offer a cosy contemporary and relaxed base from which to explore the area.

We have easy access to Stonehenge, Avebury, Lacock ,Longleat, Salisbury ,Marlborough and Bath with a host of other world heritage sites in the area to see - and are in a great area for walking, canoeing, paragliding and all outdoor sports.

Landscape

Having lived in the area for many years and been connected with the land my local knowledge is substantial and I often take ours dogs for long walks in the North Wessex Downs areas and beyond.

Wiltshire is famous for its White Horses carved in the white chalk. It is where the expression "chalk and cheese" originated, describing the huge contrast between the chalky uplands used for grazing sheep and the lush dairy country beneath used for grazing milking cows.

We also live in the middle of Moonraker Country because of a tale involving some locals hiding a smuggled barrel of brandy in a pond. They were caught in the act of fishing it out of the water by the excise men, but got away with it by acting extremely dim and claiming they were fishing for the great big cheese they saw floating in the pond, meaning the reflection of the full moon.

One of my favorite walks is from Alton Barnes White Horse (1812) via the Wandsdyke over to Tan Hill which can easily be done in 2 or 3 hours and gives splendid sweeping views of the Pewsey Vale and beyond, not to mention all the wild flowers you see along the route and the skylarks and other birds on the Downs.

The Kennet and Avon Canal is very close to Tichborne's and makes a very good walk on a lower level along the towpath between Pewsey and Devizes where you can see swans, ducks and moorhens in the summer months. As there are plenty of minor roads that cross the canal this means you can access the towpath from many different places.

Story behind the experience

We have lived at Tichborne's Farm for many years and have brought our children up here. We have bred horses and cows over the years and decided in later years that it would be nice to share our environment with other people to show them how lucky and privileged we are to live in such a beautiful area. We live on site and have converted the four cottages ourselves and organise the day to day running of the establishment from here.
