About The Stables

The Stables ticks all the boxes in your search for a dream holiday. Is it in a great location? Absolutely! This gorgeous holiday cottage is in the tranquil Wiltshire Cotswolds, next to the ancient Roman Fosseway and less than a mile from the fantastic Salutation Inn pub in the village of The Gib and two miles from a farmshop in Burton. It's also 4-miles from junction 17 of the M4 and is within easy reach of favourite Cotswold attractions. Do you need a lot of space? The Stables has plenty of it indoors and outside, sleeping six people in three ensuite bedrooms and having a huge garden. Want to bring the kids and the dogs? The cottage has oodles of rustic character and charm blended with modern comforts and thoughtful touches that make it perfect for all family members, even the furry ones.

Nettleton is one of the prettiest villages in Wiltshire. From the bright red phone box by the village green (now a free library where locals swap books) to its winding country footpaths and hedgerows with clouds of cow parsley, it is, in the best Mary Poppins tradition, practically perfect in every way. Rambling footpaths lead through and around the village, including a picturesque 3.5-mile route from Nettleton Mill to Castle Combe, following the By Brook River for part of the way.

Local attractions include the charming village of Castle Combe, a village so scenic that it's been used as a filming location for a host of movies and TV shows. Even more photogenic is the National Trust village of Lacock and the medieval Lacock Abbey, used extensively as a film set in Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice, Wolf Hall, Downton Abbey and many other period films. Lacock has an even closer link to film, being home to the Fox Talbot specialist photography museum. Other places to visit are Bowood House, the indulgent Thermae Bath Spa, and Longleat Safari Park. Check the calendar for Castlecombe Circuit, time your visit for the week of the Badminton Horse Trials, or spend a lovely autumnal day admiring the beauty of Westonbirt Arboretum. The Stables is only 10 minutes from Grittleton House and The Manor House. It is ideal if you are visiting the area to attend a wedding or getting married and want somewhere welcoming and comfortable for out-of-town friends and family to stay.

Whether you're a regular visitor to the Cotswolds or this is a once-in-a-lifetime holiday, and you want to stay in the quintessential English country cottage, The Stables will leave you with memories you will always treasure. The Stables is one of three stunning holiday cottages to let at Fosse Farm, where the owner also runs a boutique B&B. When booked together, the cottages sleep 16-22 guests. Please see the owner's website for details.

Accommodation Comprises:

The Stables is a spacious cottage with accommodation over two levels.


  • Living room with an original elm ceiling and handmade cobble floor and rustic handcrafted oak hay racks. The only thing missing is the horses! Instead, you're greeted with deep sofas and comfortable armchairs with a footstool for you to settle back with your feet up and a drink. The Victorian cast iron cooking range is a lovely decorative feature. Multi-aspect windows give different views of the garden and let in light all day long.
  • Sunny kitchen with windows on three sides and a door that opens into the garden. It's perfect for cooking meals for family and friends, with lots of bench space, a ceramic butler's sink, a modern range with a six-burner stove, and loads of space to store food. Drawers and cupboards are well-stocked with utensils and equipment.


  • Master bedroom with a double bed, bedside tables, reading lights, and storage. The ensuite has a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Second bedroom with a double bed, bedside tables and reading lights. This also has an ensuite shower room with a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Twin bedroom with two full-sized single beds and dual-aspect windows with garden views. This also has an ensuite shower room with a WC and handbasin.

Outside: The cottage has an outdoor seating area with garden furniture and a barbecue. There is off-street parking for two cars. Guests also have shared use of two acres of garden.

Additional Information: Utilities including central heating, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. Two well-behaved dogs are welcome—guests to provide dog beds and towels. Short breaks are possible, depending on availability. All of the cottages at Fosse Farm are no-smoking properties.
