We offer a private wing of Stable Cottage, with separate entrance, breakfast room and upstairs bedrooms, bathroom and separate shower room. Perfect for 2/3 adults/family with a baby/single child. Additional cost if using the 2nd bed. Close to Salisbury and the New Forest, it's the place to explore Wiltshire! A continental breakfast is included (home made bread, yoghurt, granola, milk, fruit, tea/coffee). A home cooked dinner is available at an extra cost (24 hour notice for dinner).

The space
Coronavirus update.

I understand that there is a lot of uncertainty at the moment. I want to reassure any guests coming to stay that they can choose whether to see me or not, I will not be offended. The cottage is always sparkling clean but I am taking extra precautions to ensure that all surfaces, including door handles etc, are disinfected between each booking.

Guests have exclusive use of the wing, with access to their own front door, which leads to the breakfast room. Upstairs are the two bedrooms, bathroom and separate shower room along the landing. During the summer months guests can sit outside on the patio.

If you're looking to escape from the madness and enjoy long and healthy walks in glorious countryside, then this is the place to go!

Guest access
Guests have full use of the downstairs dining area and the upstairs of the cottage.

Other things to note
Classic home made dinners are available to order (e.g. Fish Pie, Lasagne, Steak and Ale Pie) and yummy puddings ( e.g. Sticky Toffee Pudding, Chocolate Brownies, Apple & Blackberry Crumble) at a cost of £15 per person. Please BYO drinks - let me know if you'd like to see the full menu.

We have three very friendly cocker spaniels - but please let me know if you're uncomfortable around dogs and I'll try to ensure they're kept away from you. If you have young children, please ensure they are supervised if they want to stroke the dogs, as all animals can be unpredictable.

During your stay
I am usually on hand to help with questions / queries about the local area, including suggestions for day trips and local attractions. I can lend baby equipment including travel cot, changing mat and high chair. Bespoke picnics can also be provided (48 hours notice would be ideal but can sometimes do 24 hours notice!) - I will give you some suggestions and based on what you'd like will then provide a quote. I'm on Instagram for both the micro bakery, co-founded with my daughter - for photos of the bakery please go to stable&wick or stablecottagebnb&bakery for the B&B and home baking!
