We have recently returned from spending a super week at the Wilderness. It was a three generation family get-together. There was plenty of space for us all. The kitchen was really well equiped with plenty of pans, plates and mugs and TWO kettles (important at breakfast and tea time!) so it was easy to cater for 15 adults and three little ones.
Jo and John were very welcoming and extremely helpful, both in setting up our accomodation to suit us (cots, high chairs and sleeping arrangements) and with dealing with an issue that arose during our stay. Brilliant people and I would thoroughly recommend the Wilderness for similar events.
Had a great weekend organised a hen which everyone loved closed to everything. It was so clean and tidy when arrived.
The communication between owner and myself was excellent she tended to every need.
Plenty of space in cottage for everyone will definitely be coming back.
Thanks again for a lovely weekend away in your cottage
We stayed at The Wilderness for half term week to celebrate my mother in law's 60th birthday and found the accommodation to be absolutely fantastic. Plenty of space for such a large group (18 in all) of us and good outdoor space for the kids to enjoy themselves also.
Would definitely use again, and wouldn't hesitate to give the highest recommendation if asked!
Excellent for Hen Parties. Taxis can be pre booked on 07927 730629 from Westbury station for £8 each way. Lots of parking. Rooms comfortable, bathrooms clean, kitchen equipment plentiful and matching, lots of little details (night-lights, wood for the wood burner) thought of. Towels and bedding fine - but don't forget the loo rolls for the many loos! Neither living room sat the whole party but most of us got a sofa spot in the larger living room, which was great for playing games as we could all join in and hear each other. The dining table sat everyone comfortably and made a great place for a dinner party. Management cleaned thoroughly enough between stays to find my jeans squished under the bed, which is a good sign - and then posted them back to me once I realised free of charge. I'm sure they'd rather not do that every time, but very good service when needed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Wilderness for our engagement do and we would highly recommend this accommodation to large groups. It was a lovely setting for our special event and for catching up with old friends.
The kitchen is equipped really well for large numbers and we made full use of this to cook a fabulous breakfast, evening meal and afternoon tea, all for 18 people :) It's got everything you'd need to cook great food for large groups.
Everyone was impressed with the standard of the accommodation for the price we paid, and for a winter retreat it really was excellent value. The beds are comfy and the rooms are furnished to a high standard, with plenty of spare bedding to make it really cosy.
Jo was very accommodating and responded to communication from us quickly, with a friendly, genuine and welcoming attitude, which was so much appreciated.
We are keen to come back in the summer as we would love to stay again and make use of the gorgeous garden. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this accommodation - we loved it!
