Take time out in this former farm workers cottage, combining character with contemporary style, unwind in the garden, light the wood burner or explore the many historic sites and scenic surrounds.
Situated in the pretty village of Lockeridge, this charming cottage, renovated in 2018, will have tails wagging at the countryside walks on the doorstep. With one bedroom, this property is the perfect destination for couples seeking a relaxing break with their four-legged friend. Wander to the dog-friendly village pub for an evening drink, step back in time at nearby Avebury (3.5 miles) or browse the independent stores in historic Marlborough (3 miles).
Adjacent to the owner’s home, your holiday cottage combines contemporary styling with original features. You’ll go barking mad for the open-plan living space, where cosy sofas invite you to sink into them with your canine companion at your feet as you relax in the warmth from the wood burner. Prepare locally sourced ingredients in the well-equipped kitchen before enjoying your meal at the table for two. At the end of a busy day, head up the stairs to the relaxing double bedroom – remember to bring your hound’s favourite bedding so they get a good night’s sleep too. To the rear of the property is a secure terrace with garden furniture for you to linger over an al fresco supper while your pet explores their new surroundings.
Lockeridge is located on the edge of the Kennet Valley offering a choice of wonderful dog walks through the countryside and along the river. Spend an afternoon exploring the bustling town of Marlborough (3 miles) and stop for refreshments in one of the many dog-friendly cafes. Sniff out the best route through Savernake Forest (7 miles) where ancient oak trees line the paths – make sure you seek out the Big Bellied Oak, one of the oldest trees in the country. Visit Devizes (12 miles) for a pretty towpath walk or further afield discover Stonehenge (25 miles) where you and your pup can explore the timeless landscape.
