Cottage in Marlborough, Wiltshire, England -Converted Barn On Arable Farm In Wonderful Rural Location
About Madeleine White
Edward and Maddy bought the land and barns this property in situated on in 2001 and dreamed of converting this falling down courtyard into a rural retreat. 11 years later in 2013, our dream became reality and ideas from the many holiday cottages we visited for research along the way have been incorporated. We live 3 miles away with our 2 children and Edward farms the surrounding arable land and downland.
What makes this Barn unique

Amazing location!! Beautiful countryside views! Great place to unwind!
We have just returned from a 2 week trip to England. My husband, I, and two teenage daughters stayed at this at this lovely cottage. It was a quick 10-15 min drive to the grocery. A quick 15-20 min drive to Swindon if wanting to do a day trip to London. It is also a quick 1 to 1.5 hours from many amazing Cotswold market towns. Curlew Cottage had everything you could possibly need. The views from the cottage were simply spectacular. It also boasts a great location for some great country walks. Maddy was very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed. The other two cottages on property are long term letters. The one lovely couple was great about helping me figure out how to use the ovens and stove (slightly different than US). By the end of our amazing but too quick a stay, we felt relaxed and at home. My husband and I want to come back and spend more time in the future and hope this cottage is still available. If you are looking for an amazing getaway with an amazing location, this cottage can't be beat!
So pleased you had a super time. We would love to host you again, and thank you very much for your review.
Ideal for a family stay. Location is great for iconic Wiltshire tourist spots. Country setting is perfect and the Crop Circles arrived just in time!
Beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings.
This was the perfect destination for our weekend. Six friends and a dog stayed in this extremely comfortable and attractive cottage. Beautifully decorated and well stocked. Luxurious bedrooms. Stunning views. Very peaceful and away from roads. Direct access to the Ridgeway for wonderful walking. Very helpful and welcoming owners. Having purely a communal garden may need to be a consideration if you have dogs and/or children. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend, and can't recommend the cottage and the general area enough. Both are outstandingly beautiful.
Long weekend in countryside
As a party of 6 covering 3 generations, we feel we ask a lot of any accommodation. Downstairs bedroom perfect for OAPS, with no stairs to tackle and a shower,plenty of room upstairs with very big bedrooms and independent bathroom. Well equipped kitchen. Could not fault anything and beautifully clean. And a gorgeous location with good walking, but not too far from amenities.
Great base for a walking weekend
We had a great stay in Curlew Cottage. It has been beautifully renovated with lovely big rooms and great views across the countryside.
We found some good walks close by and the cottage had everything we needed - it was just a shame we couldn't stay longer!
So pleased you had such an enjoyable stay. Thank you for your review, and come and stay again soon!
Fantastic holiday cottage
The holiday cottage is set within the most stunning countryside views. The holiday cottage was of a high standard with everything we needed and would highly recommend for a family with small children. I would recommend this cottage and would love to visit again.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Please come again soon! Thank you for your review.
