Whilst searching Google Earth for accommodation we came across Coachman’s Cottage. With it taking selected dogs it would normally be something we would keep away from. We were also wary of the glowing reviews as we have been caught before with reviews on owners own websites as they have turned out to be false and placed there by the owners themselves. On this occasion how wrong could we be. Not finding anything else suitable and after speaking to Penny we decided to take a chance and delighted we did so. People like us who do not normally consider pet friendly accommodation should not be put off this property. There was not a single dog hair to be found or even the faintest trace of doggy smell. The cottage was immaculate and had a homely feel as soon as you walked in. Everything you would require was provided and the welcome hamper was really appreciated eliminating the need to go shopping as soon as you arrive. It is ideally situated in a lovely peaceful village for visiting attractions in Wiltshire, Somerset and parts of Gloucestershire and is the perfect place to come back to and relax after a day out. Penny and her Dad were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Previous reviewers have not left much to be said without repeating their words therefore we can only say that we fully agree with everything that has been said previously. Due to different tastes and expectations we usually do not recommend things to other people other than saying we liked it but on this occasion we would not hesitate to recommend Coachman’s Cottage to anyone. It would certainly be the top of our list if we were visiting the area again. Thank you Penny for a great few days break in December 2016. Response: This will be a helpful review for people with aforementioned misgivings, assuming it is genuine of course! I always question dog owners closely before taking a booking as we work hard at keeping the cottage extremely clean. I agree that reviews could be fabricated by owners, it has always been our policy to post ALL GENUINE reviews, but you will have to take my word for that. To this end we have re-joined "Quality in Tourism", after an absence of about 5 years, an independent body who inspect the cottage annually, checking that the whole business reaches a set standard, Coachmans Cottage has been awarded 4* with a Gold Award for excellence and achieves 100% for cleanliness.

What a great find!. This was an internet search which did not disappoint. Penny and her father Peter are just the perfect hosts and nothing appears to be too much trouble. The accommodation is just perfection with absolutely nothing overlooked. beautiful lounge, comfortable beds, top quality linen and kitchen equipment and the wood burner with wood and kindling supplied was just the cherry on the top. The cottage occupies a really convenient location for exploring the countryside of Wiltshire and in walking distance of the pub and the super village store which is a veritable Aladdin's cave of provisions, home bakes and fabulous gifts. I was visiting from South Africa so it might be a while before I can enjoy the comforts of Coachmans Cottage again, but will certainly recommend it to my friends and hope to return sometime in the future. Best wishes to Peter and Penny. Keep up the good work!! Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review Coachmans Cottage. It was a pleasure meeting you and your 2 friends, we are very pleased that you were so pleased with the cottage and village. We very much look forward to welcoming you back one day in the future. Best, Penny.

Great find for Birthday Celebrations

By Heather Y-B, Kent. on 20-Nov-2016

My first visit to Wiltshire, despite living in the UK for 50 years! Delighted I left it to my friend to organise and book our stay at Coachman's Cottage (from SA), having picked out all the green countryside that surrounded the town of Steeple Ashton. We have done many road trips in SA and some in the UK, but I can honestly say, this was the most comfortable 5 star accommodation we've ever had the good fortune to stay in. Not only were our hosts the most welcoming, but the village soon felt like home too, with visits to the fabulous village store, and pub where we enjoyed several excellent meals. We wanted for nothing; from the beautiful furnishings; well equipped kitchen; welcome hamper and home made brownies and marmalade, to several files of information of stunning places to visit within a short distance of the village. Thanks to Penny, and her Dad, Peter (who calls himself the Maintenance Man!) My car was left nearby while I went away for a couple of days, and inadvertently I left the passenger window wide-open, which fortunately they noticed while out walking with their dog, and took the situation in hand, going beyond the call of duty, by expertly sealing up the window to keep any rain out, and keeping a close eye on the car, ensuring I had a dry car for my return journey to Kent. Thank you Penny, and Peter. I hope there will be other opportunities to visit your lovely cottage with my friends again in the not too distant future. We had such a happy and comfortable stay, and enjoyed visiting the places you recommended during the day, and returning "home" to our beautiful cottage late afternoon for tea, and later enjoying our evening in front of the super log-fire, discussing the days events. Response: I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Coachmans and Steeple Ashton. We were only too pleased that our endeavours with your car kept out the rain and wild animals and very many thanks for the super truffles. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Best, Penny.
