You’ll love the Woodford Valley and this thatched cottage at the edge of the village. It has long views, stacks of character and traditionally decorated rooms: a ground floor twin with roll top bathroom and two cosy doubles upstairs that share a bathroom. Fabrics are flowered, headboards upholstered, mattresses top quality. Or choose to snuggle up by the wood-burner in a charming shepherd’s hut and sleep out under the stars – one has a king-sized bed. Breakfast in the kitchen, or pretty garden, on Annie’s homemade bread and good things local – Ella looks after you well if Annie is away. Head out to explore Avebury and Stonehenge.
