“Cosy, relaxing and really well equipped”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

All communication with the owner was excellent and the cottage certainly didn't disappoint. It has been equipped to a high standard with lots of care for the guests. We liked having the shops nearby, but still with plenty of peace and quiet. There is some great walking, with the local OS map and a selection of leaflets and books on the local area. I would certainly recommend the cottage.

“Lovely, well appointed house with all the amenities you could want.”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is tastefully decorated, light and airy, and has all the home comforts you could wish for. It is really peaceful in the house because it is tucked away and yet it is only 5 minutes walk to good restaurants, cafes and shops. You can easily get to Avebury and Bath among other places, and there are some nice local walks along the river. We have already recommended the house to our relatives!

“Great for a peaceful retreat in a beautiful market town.”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We loved staying at 1 The Manse. I had wanted to book a relaxing place to stay within easy walking distance of Marlborough High Street and with a convenient parking space for the car. The cottage suited us perfectly. It was a bonus to have a really friendly welcome from the neighbour who looks after the place, and reassuring to know that he was on hand if we had any questions. It's surprisingly light and airy inside despite being tucked away just off the high street and the handy bench outside proved to be in a good sun-trap. The owners have equipped and decorated the place really well so we had everything we needed to relax and feel at home. I would definitely consider booking the cottage again...possibly for a week this summer!

Many, many thanks for your very positive and informative review. We really appreciate people taking the time to do a review, especially such a glowing one! So pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay. Marlborough is a lovely market town and it is certainly good being near all amenities but in a very quiet position as well.
Look forward to possibly hearing from you in the near future re a return visit.

“Super Cottage”
Reviewed 28 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We are regular visitors to Marlborough and we think that this cottage is great. It extremely cosy yet feels light and airy at the same time. The owner Sue has done a great job in furnishing it. The kitchen is very functional and has all the equipment you need should you wish to cook, and all in very good order. The cottage overall is spotless and uncluttered. The beds are very comfortable and the linen fresh and crisp. The shower is good. Sue is very efficient and flexible regarding arrival and departure times which is wonderful, and Jonathan the neighbour very friendly and helpful and gives you a good introduction to everything. Wi-fi also works really well, which was essential for our teenagers! Finally, location is excellent as just a 1 min walk to the High Street with all its shops. Overall, a delight to stay in, and we will definitively be regular visitors!

Thankyou so much for your glowing review of The Manse. We try really hard to keep everything up to date and in good working order and are so pleased when it is appreciated. Jonathan will be thrilled to be described, yet again as'Very friendly and helpful'! We are so lucky to have both him and Diane as neighbours and they do a huge amount to keep everything running smoothly.
Look forward to hearing from you again in the future and the very best of luck to your son in competing in the Devizes to Westminster canoe race.

“Warm welcome to wet travellers”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My wife, brother and I arrived late in the afternoon after visiting Stonehenge on possibly the wettest and coldest day in February. We were met by John as we got out of the car and were delighted to find that he had put the heating on in the house and it was lovely and warm. John showed us round the house and explained where things were (not always obvious) and said that he was only next door and give him a knock if we needed anything. He was good to his word. The house isn't the most spacious, but is well stocked and had enough room for us 3 adults. The Manse is situated close to the centre of Marlborough and in the same street has restaurants/take-aways from all over the world. My wife tells me that the fish and chips from Yeungs across the road were the best she has had. We walked from the house to Avebury along the Wessex Ridgeway - about 6.25 miles each way. If you like walking, it is well worth putting your boots on.

Many thanks for your review and glad to hear that your stay at The Manse was a positive one; apart from the ghastly weather! The house, as you say is not huge but we hope that we manage to provide all that people need to make their stay a comfortable and enjoyable one.
If you would like to stay again any time in the future you would be most welcome and we would certainly try to arrange some dry weather for you!
