About Kestrel Cottage

Kestrel Cottage sleeps four guests (plus an extra two on a sofa bed) and is located in a rural position in Wiltshire between Crofton and Great Bedwyn on the outskirts of Savernake Forest. The cottage affords lovely views over rolling farmland and has a secure three acre field which is great for dogs and ball games. It also sits next to Brail Vista, being accessed by the main drive.

Great Bedwyn village is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has a village shop for stocking up on provisions, post office, baker and two pubs (one with a great restaurant). It is ideal for cyclists sitting on the Wiltshire Cycleway and having lots of cycle routes amongst the Wiltshire Downs area, linking up to the Ridge Way Path. A route taking you along the disused railway line (from Marlborough to Chiseldon) is also worth exploring.

Steeped in history, there are plenty of sites of interest to visit in the area including Silbury Hill, the famous Avebury Stone Circle, Kennet Long Burrow, St. Martin’s Chapel at Chisbury (closeby), Wilton Windmill (Wiltshire's only remaining working windmill) and the intriguing Crop Circles which appear on the Marlborough and Pewsey Downs (not so ancient but every bit as fascinating).
