    This chocolate- box thatch cottage in the picturesque village of Hilmarton, provided a very relaxing break for our family and dog. Perfectly situated for the canine traveller, this character cottage is a minute away from fields and streams where the dogs can frolic and chase birds to their heart's content. For the two legged traveller you can explore delightful rural countryside and villages including Castle Combe, and the towns of Malmesbury and Marlborough. The Cotswolds are also just on the doorstep, and even Devon is only a 2 and a half hour drive away.
