Reviews of The Canal Barn

We value our customers feedback, here are just a few from the guest book…

“a beautiful cottage would highly recommend. Plenty of space. I would definitely stay again.”

We stayed in this beautiful cottage for a week. I was with my 85 year old mother and twin 15 year boys. There was plenty of space for all of us with the three bedrooms. Mum stayed on the ground floor bedroom as she preferred the shower in the bathroom. All rooms had amazing views. It was lovely to wake up and see the horses in the paddocks. We liked the visits from the dogs too.(they are very well trained so if you don’t like dogs they wouldn’t bother you.) because of the space inside and out we found it better to get our relatives to visit us at the cottage instead of their more cramped homes. Its a short flat walk to the canal which is breathtaking beautiful. Its a very quite safe and peaceful spot but so close to Devizes. Would love to come and stay again when we come back to the UK

“Perfect family holiday location”

Just got back from a lovely weeks holiday in the Dairy House and Devizes We were four adults with two small children and the property was the perfect size for us with all the amenities you could want and plenty of space for us all. Our four year old daughter particularly like that the garden was just out of the kitchen and we particularly liked that we could just sit and watch her play. The local horse always came to greet us every time we went out. The canal is a short walk around a path and is a nice walk up and down the tow path. Devizes is a nice area and a great base for the likes of visiting Longleat. The property could do with a little attention to detail. The coffee table in particular is too big for the room and see through glass so walking into it is inevitable, not family friendly at all. Some of the walls could do with a paint and there were some parts which were rather dusty – nothing you wouldn’t find in your own home but when paying top dollar you expect a higher standard. But nothing that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t rate this as five stars. Heartily recommend.

“Good visit”

Short walk to canal, but no view of it from Dairy House. Very nice property with 3 bedrooms, all en-suite. Relaxing.

“Charming, well-kept, friendly and comfortable”

We had a great weekend break here, it’s a lovely location right by the canal, perfect for walks (we were lucky with the autumn weather!) and nice pubs nearby with good food. The owners were very friendly, the rooms seemed very well looked after and we had everything we needed. Very cosy in the evening with the wood stove. Highly recommended!

“Archetypal English Holiday”

We decided to hire the barn for a week away, and we were not disappointed. I took my wife and twelve year old son and my mum and sister came as well. What a lovely converted barn only two hours from home. The barn conversion is in excellent condition, spacious and provides all mod cons. It easily sleeps six, and could accomodate eight at a push. The location is superb – a hidden jewel in the Wiltshire countryside, a few yards from the Kennet and Avon Canal.

“The perfect getaway”

Nice place. It had all what we need to have a week holiday, The kitchen was well equipped, and the bathrooms were clean and tidy. Best of all is the view and scenery. Devizes canal is just behind you and you can walk for miles on end by the canal watching those lovely long boats going through the locks.
