Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Coupe
August 2020
This is a beautiful cottage and very well maintained.. The owners are helpful and speak if they see you but leave you alone to enjoy your holiday in peace. Just one note to anyone with a physical disability but doesn't need a fully accessible property, the shower is very high to step in and out of, approx 10" with nothing to grab onto and the sofa is very low. This would not impact anyone without a disability so please don't think these comments are a negative. The property does not advertise itself as accessible so this is just a comment for those of you that may have difficulties with the above mentioned. A lot of tourist attractions are close by and you can be on the coast in about one hour 30 mins.

Such a lovely, clean, cosy cottage! We were welcomed by the owner on arrival and we knew that they were always available if needed, but they left us to enjoy our holiday in peace. Although we were staying during the week of Storm Dennis, the cottage was always warm and cosy, with an extra radiator and electric fan heater available if necessary. The shower worked well - nice and clean and with ample supplies of hot water. The little kitchen had all we needed and we also could have used a washing machine in the adjoining workshop if we had so wished. We loved the beams and character of this cottage and felt totally at home and at ease from the start. The bed was very comfortable and clean, with a really snuggly duvet and soft, fluffy pillows. Outside, there is a good sized back lawn and garden, shared with the other cottage, which I imagine will be a lovely sun trap in the summer and which was perfect for walking our dog first thing in the morning. As a base for exploring Wiltshire, this was the perfect place to stay and Urchfont itself is absolutely gorgeous - all red brick and thatch, with a village pub and duck pond - idyllic! We would certainly recommend The Pottery for a relaxing and romantic holiday.

This is an excellent base for exploring a beautiful and interesting part of the country.. If you like history or archaeology, it's a wonderful area, as Stonehenge, Avebury, Silbury Hill and other ancient monuments are all within easy distance. There's also lots of fascinating industrial history nearby, including the Caen Hill Locks and the Crofton Pumping Station on the Kennet & Avon Canal, and the Great Western Railway museum in Swindon - and of course the Roman / Georgian city of Bath is always worth a visit. Plenty to do and see, whatever the weather.

Owners very friendly and everyone we met in the village spoke to us when we went out down to pub for meals.. We can recommend the food at the Lamb public house resendly priced for a village place
Mr Johnstone, June 2019

The owners were delightful and could not have been more welcoming.. They greeted us warmly on our arrival, offering information on local resources and places of interest; and checked regularly during our stay to see if they could offer further assistance. There were fresh flowers on the table; milk (in a proper glass milk bottle) in the fridge; and the gift of a lovely souvenir 'Urchfont' shopping bag.
Mr Worsley, June 2019

When we arrived the owners greeted us and showed us where they lived in the very nearby house and offered to help with any problems or queries which was nice.. The cottage style home was really quaint and pretty, the lounge part looked over the garden and the kitchen was off the lounge, so everything was easily accessible. The cooker was electric, so not the easiest to regulate but I got used to it. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the whole experience. The owners were very helpful as we took our dog Luther and they showed where local walks were. We were only around 3 miles from Devizes which we like very much, as we love the cafe near the canal, which is dog friendly. We also found The Milk Churn which is near Melksham, again dog friendly. We loved the pond in Urchfont which had lots of ducks swimming in it or walking around, very pretty. The village also has a post office and pub. We were given a reusable shopping bag with Urchfont on it, which we thought was a lovely reminder of our restful stay in Urchfont. Very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

The owners, Philip and Clare were very gracious hosts and made me very welcome.. The property was secluded and quiet and made for a very restful break. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at The Pottery.
Mr Prew

Although small, this cottage is perfect for a couple and their dog - the lack of a door on the bedroom (there is a curtain) means there is no bar to your canine friend waking you up early in the morning! Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The village is pretty with a good pub, and the local footpaths are well signed and in good order. Urchfont is a good base to explore this part of Wiltshire, visits to Lacock and Avebury are a must as well as a walk on the airy Pewsey Downs and along the canal at Devizes.

There is only a community shop in the village which is a little pricey

We stayed here for a week in May 2018 with our golden retriever Oscar. The hosts Claire and Phillip were welcoming and helpful in offering advise on the local area and places to visit. The Pottery is quaint and well equipped with a comfortable bed and a beautiful garden t sit in and soak up the sun. We would highly recommend a visit.

Really enjoyed staying in 'The Pottery'.. Just what we hoped it would be, (a comfy rustic retreat), in a beautiful village and interesting area. Owners very helpful.
Mrs Pearce

The Pottery is small, but very comfortable, we had all we could wish for.. The owners live on site and are very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Our dog was well provided for, and the garden was safe although there was a small lane well to the front of the property. We all enjoyed our stay very much. Lovely Village in which to stay, and lots of great places to visit within easy reach.

The Pottery was like a home and the owners Phillip and Clare were excellent hosts nothing too much trouble and there is a great possibility we might go there again.. Alas the weather was not the kindest, if it had been we would probably had a BBQ in the garden at the rear of the property, there were also chair in the front that we did make use of.
Mr Cottell

This is a lovely cottage in a suitably secluded location.. The hosts were really friendly and made us feel very welcome despite our late arrival. I would highly recommend this cottage and we found that is has all of the amenities that one would require. Thanks for the enjoyable stay.

My husband, myself and our dog, Ted, thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The garden was a great size for our dog to run around in and we felt really looked after by Clare. We would highly recommend staying in this lovely cottage in the charming village of Urchfont where everybody was welcoming and friendly. We felt totally refreshed after our relaxing stay and would definitely return in the not too distant future hopefully.

The Holiday was fantastic and very enjoyable the host who lived on site helped us with any enquiries about the local village.. The local village although small had everything you would ever need a shop, post office pub and very friendly people who actually talk to you Would go again the only problem was we now have two large dogs and I do not think we would all fit in have to leave the wife at home
Mrs Clemons, June 2017

The Pottery is a beautiful little hideaway in the exceedingly lovely village of Urchfont.. The cottage is tastefully decorated, warm and comfortable, and the owners are equally warm and obliging. We had a fabulous time and would not hesitate for a moment to re-book for another holiday.

Very charming, cosy, beautifully furnished, well-equipped cottage in a pretty village. Perfect for someone who does not have a car and wants to get away from everything and just relax. Lovely countryside walks/runs- the walk into Devizes is particularly nice and the owners were very helpful with suggestions. Highly recommended.

This cottage was lovely exactly what I was looking for. Stayed with my 2 dogs on my own, the owner was kind and helpful but, also left me to it wasn't nosey etc. I felt I was pretty central to most sites with Devizes 10min drive away for amenities. It was clean and I arrived to fresh milk and home made cookies waiting for me very nice touch. I did visit in Dec so it was a little chilly but, really enjoyed my stay. If I were to visit Wiltshire again I would defo stay here. I have advised others to visit. Wiltshire was also a lovely place and kept me very busy. Thumbs up 5* all round. :)
Mr Aston, March 2015

The cottage was comfortable and warm for a winter break.. The bed was extremely comfy with very good quality bed linen. Devizes is an interesting market town with ample parking, we enjoyed various walks and frequented a range of the cafés in the town. The canal offered lovely walks to pubs in both directions for lunch. We had a really good week's holiday.

Lovely area - very nice village - some good walking and central for most things. Nice pub in the village within walking distance - basic food and reasonable. The Pottery was cosy and warm, especially with the extra convector heater. Nice to have washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer even though they were in the barn adjacent.

The owners are friendly, helpful and very obliging. The house is a delightful barn conversion, tastefully done and decorated to compliment the building. We have told all our friends about it. We booked before leaving and are returning next year. The location is ideally central for sightseeing Wiltshire.
