About the Property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, Sleeps 6 + 1

With 3 ensuite bedrooms, and set within a beautiful thatched walled garden and with a wonderful award winning pub 2 mins walk away Enford House Cottage is the perfect place for a relaxing & peaceful break in the english countryside but is also within easy reach of many tourist attractions including Stonehenge, Avebury, Salisbury and Bath

The cottage is an attached wing of the 18th Century, Grade 2 listed manor house (Enford House) and is a home away from home with comfortable beds, good quality bedlinen and towels and a well equipped kitchen as well as WiFi and a games room with Table Tennis, Pool Table and Table Football and a swing and slide in the garden

The property is surrounded by the wall garden which is situated next to the village church and beyond that fields. The village pub, which serves good food and has just won Wiltshire's 'pub of the year' 2016, is 2 minutes walk away. The cottage is child friendly - the garden is enclosed by the wall and there is a thatched games room for visitors to use with table tennis and table football and also a swing and slide in the garden and also a football goal. Wifi is available throughout the property.

The garden is completely enclosed and the entrance gate can be shut for those with young children or dogs.

The village of Enford is in the Avon Valley - the village is surrounded by countryside and there are lots of places to walk or bicycle. Stonehenge is an hours walk or 10 min drive.

The village has 2 great local pubs. The Swan, which is 2 minutes' walk, and The Red Lion, in the next door village of East Chisenbury, which is 2 minutes' drive or a 20 minute walk. Both do good food - the Red Lion has a Michelin pub award for its food and is a well known Wiltshire pub which people come a long way to visit. There is no shop in the village itself but there are local shops in neighbouring villages less than 5 minutes drive away, major supermarkets in the local towns and all the supermarkets do delivery to the door. And for those looking for a winter get away the cottage is very warm with central heating throughout, an electric log burner in the sitting room and double glazing so is very cosy!

The cottage is ideally situated for the following places of interest

•Stonehenge (10 mins drive) and Avebury (25 mins drive) Stone Circles (World Heritage sites),
•Salisbury Cathedral, Old Sarum and the Medieval cities of Salisbury & Wilton (25 min drive)
