Luxury self-catering Manor House in Wiltshire

Introduction

Dating back to the 1300s, history is alive in this unique family home near Bath and the Cotswolds. Become a part of Avalon Manor narrative; let the heraldry above the fireplace ignite thoughts of the medieval knights who once walked the great hall’s flagstone floors by candlelight as musicians played on the minstrel gallery above. Explore the Salisbury Plain's chalky plateaus, cook up family feasts and savour aromas of dinner roasting in the Aga as you enjoy all that makes this luxury self-catering manor house feel just like home.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Families are guaranteed to sleep soundly between the six sumptuous bedrooms of historic luxury. Two twin and four double bedrooms provide peaceful retreats for rest and relaxation, all graced with fresh, crisp cottons. The master bedroom boasts character panelling, oak floors, an original fireplace and elegant four poster bed. Exposed oak beams add style and charm to the A-framed twin bedroom on the second floor - placed at the top of the house it’s the children’s own retreat - grown-ups keep out! Two en-suites and two family bathrooms each possess their own individual luxurious features including a roll top bath, under floor heating, exposed oak beams and rainfall shower.

Outside

From quiet haven to adventure playground, the glorious grounds of Avalon Manor are an oasis to suit all types of families. The young adventurer has an acre to explore, tree house to climb and expedition to find the most secretive hide and seek spot. Older children will love to explore the spacious Salisbury Plains on foot, walk through Wiltshire’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty or take a picturesque bike ride along the River Avon. For something more enduring, take one of the off-road cycling routes or even get involved with one of the Durrington Triathlons!  

For Relaxation

Whilst the children energetically run off steam, or showcase their acrobatics on the trampoline, parents and grandparents can pick their spot to relax and watch from the sideline. The gardens are elegant and timeless; relax by the pond, the Provence-style courtyard, or amidst the luscious verdure of the summer house. Share moments of quiet sophistication and look out for the rare Marsh Fritillary butterfly who also calls the garden home! Cosy evenings playing in the games room, soaking in the bath tubs and sprawling out beside the fire will provide a blissful end to the day’s antics.

Practicalities

There is parking for up to four cars. A well-equipped utility and kitchen can be found on the ground floor. Please note the property is situated just a short distance from the main road and is along a small village road; perfect for a short walk to the village pub for a hearty dinner and to sample the local ales. The owners kindly request that dogs are kept to the stone floor areas of and not permitted on the carpets or furniture.
