Stable Cottage is detached and offers ground floor accommodation in the lovely village of Milton Lilbourne in the unspoilt heart of Wiltshire, just an hour from London airport. The village is a no through road and the cottage is situated almost at the far end, so it is extremely peaceful. There are wonderful walks and off road cycling from the front door.
