We have just come back from a lovely relaxing weekend in this lovely cottage.Our Hosts were amazing and really looked after us.Fresh bread, croissants jams, butter , milk cereals, milk , orange juice etc all on arrival and the lovely cosy woodburner blazing away in the corner. the bed was the most comfortablest bed I ever slept in. Huge selection of DVDS to choose from if we stayed in and a lovely pub right across the road with a delicious menu. We visited bath for the day and would recommend the guided tour bus. All in all a lovely break away from the hustle and bustle and came back all refreshed. Thanks again Soo and R - We had a lovely time.

Oh My- Look no further for a amazing experience in the Salisbury/Tisbury area. I booked this cottage based on reviews and location to Stonehenge. It is hard to accurately describe how amazing our experience was. The owners, Rob and Soo-wonderful hosts leave nothing to chance. The Old Woodstore cottage is so well appointed and thoughtfully put together. We arrived to a warm fire in the woodstove and a pantry and fridge that had a very generous supply of staples such as eggs, bread, bacon, coffee, tea etc. The 14th century pub across the street is a real treat, giving the opportunity for foreigners to be "local". As great as the place is it is second to the area. Winding roads and miles and miles of hiking trails in the absolute most beautiful countryside imaginable. We are so grateful for the experience of being guests of Soo and Rob.
That lucky discovery that makes a vacation.

Flying by the seat of our pants on first trip to Britain, we stumbled upon this one-of-a-kind find! Despite the troubles of this website's glitches, we persevered and had an in-between 3 night stay at the Old Woodstore. Our hosts, Soo and Rob, we convivial, informative and the kind of folks that one rarely has the good fortune to meet. They stocked us up so well that we had leftovers when we left! And we didn't shop once! We ate all 3 nights at the pub across the street, which was absolutely the best food of a 17 day trip. Even made 'honorary locals' and were turfed at closing time! The private annex is quirky, watch your head, 'liberal loo', french press for coffee, wonderful tv, spotty wifi (you're in the country!), lovely shower, comfy bed, your own little garden amid wildflowers and smells of wood. Sheep to the rear of us, cows to the front. Fairytale thatched cottages and postcard boughs. Magic. Narrow roads and wrong turns to the right places. A guided tour in Tisbury 2000 year old church by the caretaker himself just for me. See old Wardour Castle on a rainy day. Idyllic. The whole experience was absolutely delightful. Thank you Soo and Rob, what a pleasure it was!

We had such a lovely chilled time at this beautiful cottage, it was so clean, peaceful and the owners were so wonderful and couldn't of been more helpful. There's plenty of walking with stunning views and a very cute pub just a stone throw away which we visited and the food was very good too....... both working in London we found this place perfect for time out from the busy crazy life we lead, I managed to sleep until 10am when I am use to being up at 6am, so to me this was BLISS. We will definitely be going back over the winter to enjoy their cute little wood burner.... to do some more sleeping :-). Not forgetting they have a very cute doggy who welcomes you, always puts a smile on our faces :-). Thank you both so much and see you again soon, we will be in touch to check out my birthday dates with you. Xena & Stuart

New Year at the cottage
By Emmanuel V on 30-Dec-2015
My Partner and I were looking for a place away from the London New Year rush, so we decided to stay at the Old Woodstore. This little hidden gem did just the trick, unfortunately we had rainy weather but we enjoyed staying in the cottage by the fire, cooking, relaxing and watching movies. We went on a couple of walks around the countryside which is stunning. We also went into Salisbury, which is only a short drive away. The cottage is cosy, beautiful and exceeded our expectation, we throughly enjoyed our stay. Soo and Rob are lovely hosts and their dog Ruby is so sweet, we wish we could have stayed longer, as we didn't want to go back to London. We will definitely come back and highly recommend staying at the Old Woodstore. Thank you for our stay. Emmanuel & Adam
Beautiful cottage - the perfect retreat!
By Emily S on 15-Aug-2015
Beautiful cottage in the middle of a picturesque and quiet little hamlet. The cottage was exactly what we'd hoped for - very homely and cosy, perfect for a weekend break away. Soo was extremely helpful and welcoming on our arrival, showing us around the property and where everything was. Lovely big sofa, a great DVD collection, well equipped kitchen and yummy breakfast hamper - there was everything we needed and lots more! And the pub across the road served great food too!
Relaxing retreat in beautiful surroundings
By Tess W on 07-Jul-2015
We had a wonderful 4 days staying at the Old Woodstore. Soo and Rob were excellent hosts, very welcoming on arrival (including much-appreciated breakfast supplies) and both had lots of great suggestions of good walking routes and pubs nearby (of which there are many!) The property inside is even cosier than the pictures let on, and the garden was lovely to sit out in on sunny afternoons. Lots of nice touches like sun loungers in the garden, a good DVD collection, lots of maps and even a pair of binoculars for walks! The Nadder valley is hands down one of the prettiest places we have visited in England - we hope to be back again sometime soon!
