Set in a pretty village just a mile from the bustling market town of Marlborough, Tresco House offers guests a choice of boutique-style accommodation.
Those who prefer to stay on a bed and breakfast basis can book one of two beautifully-appointed, spacious rooms in the main house, and the Coach House and Courtyard Cottage have been sensitively converted to create two self-contained, boutique self-catering boltholes.
A beautiful former vicarage, Tresco House can be found in Ogbourne St. Andrew at the heart of the Wessex Downs. There are plenty of wonderful walking and cycling routes nearby, as well as the opportunity to enjoy other outdoor pursuits, such as horse riding, shooting and golf.
Historic Avebury, with its mystical ring of stones dating back to around 2,600BC, can be reached by car in ten minutes or you can opt to head there on foot. Silbury Hill and Stonehenge are also within easy reach, and Oxford, Winchester, Bath, Salisbury and The Cotswolds are all less than an hour’s drive away.
Originally providing stabling for Tresco House, the Coach House is a detached two-storey property that comfortably sleeps up to six people. Downstairs there’s a double bedroom; a large open plan living area with two sofas, a flat screen TV with DVD player, a dining table and a fully fitted kitchen; and a large shower room. Upstairs in the eaves, you’ll find a double bedroom with lovely views across neighboring fields and an additional seating area for reading or listening to music. A double sofa bed in the lounge area provides additional sleeping space, if required. The kitchen has a double oven and hob, a fridge, a dishwasher and a coffee maker, not to mention all the cooking utensils, crockery and glasses you’re likely to need during your stay. There’s also a washing machine, and the property has its own private garden area for guests to enjoy.
Once the workshop for the famous Pelham Puppets, the Courtyard Cottage sleeps two people in a luxury suite made up of four ground floor rooms. It comprises a double bedroom; a cosy lounge with a dining table, as well as a flat screen TV and DVD player; a fully fitted kitchen with a dresser, oven, hob and fridge; and a spacious bathroom.
Both properties are decorated in soothing neutral shades and furnished in a contemporary country style. They’re stylish, yet relaxed and welcoming – the kind of place where you’ll feel instantly at home and enjoy kicking back with a glass of wine after a day of walking in the glorious countryside or exploring the wider region. Guests staying on a self-catering basis receive a welcome hamper containing all of the basics needed for their first night’s stay.
The guest bedrooms in the main house are decorated and furnished in a classic and elegant country style that echoes the period charm of the itself. Outside there are delightful gardens to explore.
All guests benefit from secure courtyard parking accessed by automated gates.
The Coach House sleeps up to six people on a self-catering basis – in two double bedrooms and a double sofa bed in the lounge area.
The Courtyard Cottage sleeps two people on a self-catering basis in one double room.
In the main house, two guest bedrooms are available on a B&B basis:
The Yellow Room is a sunny, double aspect room with a king-sized bed, a comfortable sofa, a TV, hairdryer, and tea and coffee-making facilities. The sumptuous adjoining bathroom has a free standing bath, a large walk-in shower and an original hot water storage fireplace dating back to 1848.
The Lilac Room is restful space with a real sense of calm. There’s a double bed, seating for two, a TV, a hairdryer, tea and coffee-making facilities, and en suite shower room.
The beds are dressed in luxurious, Egyptian cotton sheets. In the bathrooms, there are fluffy towels and robes provided, as well as Cole and Lewis toiletries.
