Enjoy the tranquility of this charming country retreat on the outskirts of Rowde. Set in its own little orchard, this self contained annex is just a stone’s throw away from the Kennet and Avon Canal and within easy reach of the pretty market town of Devizes. Lovingly converted in 2019, the Orchard Retreat offers high standard living accommodation for up to 4 people with all mod cons and a warm, welcoming feel – not least thanks to its beautiful décor and cosy underfloor heating throughout.
The Orchard Retreat has a cosy double bedroom with a comfortable double bed which boasts a pocket sprung mattress topped with memory foam – giving amazing levels of support and comfort. The sofa in the sitting room can easily be converted into a comfy double bed – thus giving the option of accommodating two further guests. The open plan kitchen & living room is a beautiful, airy, bright space with natural light streaming in by day through the fully glazed contemporary French style sliding patio doors which look out onto the patio and orchard and the two velux windows in the roof can be remotely controlled to allow just the right amount of fresh air into the room.
The generously sized fully fitted kitchen with breakfast bar is well equipped and offers everything you may want for a self catering holiday: high quality Neff gas hob and oven with extraction unit over, fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, washing machine, Nespresso coffee maker complete with starter pods, kettle and toaster – and the breakfast bar can double as a laptop friendly workspace.
The living room area seats 4 people and whether you just fancy looking out onto the orchard, relaxing over a glass of wine, reading a book or you like to switch off watching TV (a smart tv) or surfing the web on our free, unrestricted Wifi, you can be sure that nothing but possibly a few cheeky squirrels or some deer looking for the orchard fruit will disturb your peace. On sunny days you can sit outside on the patio or under the trees in the orchard where you may find our free range hens rooting around. Beyond the orchard, through an opening in the hedge, you can see a paddock where our horse can often be found grazing - fenced in by an electric tape fence.
A fully tiled, spacious, modern wetroom with power shower, low level WC and heated towel rail completes the Orchard Retreat perfectly and, of course, you will find soap, shampoo, nice soft towels and a hairdryer at your disposal to make your entire stay as enjoyable, easy and comfortable as possible.
The Orchard Retreat has its own private entrance and 2 private parking spaces (more can be arranged on request).
This location offers the best of both worlds: a peaceful countryside setting with lots of great walks and cycling routes at its doorstep, starting with the world-famous Caen Hill Locks of the Kennet and Avon Canal just a minute’s walk away (which is also a much visited spot by fishermen) and it is also within direct reach of great road links to visit and explore the great historic and prehistoric sites, National Trust villages and famous towns and cities of the area. There is nearby Lacock with its famous Abbey where some of the iconic Harry Potter scenes were filmed, Bowood House and Gardens, Avebury and Marlborough. Furthermore, there is Stonehenge, located on Salisbury Plain, about 16 miles south of Devizes and a further 8 miles south of Stonehenge is the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury. The Roman city of Bath, Longleat, Stourhead and the Cotswold Water Park are also not further than a 40 to 50 minute car journey away.
As Wiltshire is famous for its White Horses carved into the chalkstone hills, why not visit the nearby Pewsey or Westbury White Horse – or for that matter – make it your mission to see them all during your stay!
As we are situated just outside the village of Rowde you can walk to our award winning local village pub, the George and Dragon, via a pretty footpath which partly leads through the picturesque Caen Hill Diamond Jubilee Wood which borders the Caen Hill Locks. It is only a 10 to 15 minute stroll into the village. The Rowdey Cow, a farm café and ice cream parlour set in the middle of farm land overlooking beautiful countryside, can also be reached within 20 minutes on foot via the Jubilee Wood walk and along the edge of fields (or via the main road if preferred). It serves delicious breakfast, lunch and lots of home made cakes as well as home made Italian ice cream. Devizes and the surrounding local villages offer more places to eat.
