It has recently been purchased, renovated and redecorated, to offer our guests modern conveniences alongside its period features. It is set in a quiet location, in a Conservation Area, in the historic village of Edington (it was here, in AD 878, that King Alfred defeated the Vikings and prevented a Scandinavian conquest of the entire British Isles).

Holly Cottage has its own small walled garden, deckchairs, outdoor dining table, barbecue and parasol, and is within walking distance of our award-winning pub, childrens’ play area, farm shop and an important 14th century church (see ’The Neighbourhood’ below).

The Neighbourhood

We provide Holly Cottage guests with an extensive hard copy Manual that includes our guide to 60 local attractions. These include not only the usual bucket list (‘Salisbury Plain’, ‘Stonehenge’, ‘Longleat’, ‘Bowood’, and the great cities, cathedrals, abbeys and theatres of Bath, Bristol and Salisbury) but less well known gems (such as the ‘Haynes Motor Museum’, ‘Boscombe Down Aviation’, the ‘American Museum’, ‘Frome Independent Market’, ‘The Newt’, Shearwater Lake and the West Kennett Longbarrow). We can also help with Golf and Swimming venues and cycle hire in the local area.

Edington has an award-winning pub ('The Three Daggers', AA Pub of the Year, a 15 minutes’ walk), its adjacent Farm Shop, and a magnificent C14 Priory Church. The neighbouring village of Bratton has its own pub ('The Duke') and a convenience store with a post office. The village is surrounded by walks and is within easy cycling / walking distance of Salisbury Plain.

Edington is known for hosting one of the oldest annual festivals of church music in the world. Since 1956, the “Edington Festival” has grown and flourished and now over 80 leading musicians gather for a week in August to sing the principal daily services in three choirs. Visitors come from all over the world to share this extraordinary experience.

Finally, the site of Edington itself is an important landmark in European history. Had it not been for King Alfred the Great’s crucial victory here 1,141 years ago, it’s very possible that the Vikings would have quickly gone on to conquer the entire British mainland. But Alfred’s Wessex army defeated the Scandinavian forces of Chief Guthrum somewhere on the hillside just above Holly Cottage, at the crucial “Battle of Ethandun” in AD 878.

The victory resulted in the “Treaty of Wedmore” (now Chippenham, 15 miles to the north of Edington) and the conversion of Guthrum to Christianity. Under the Treaty, the Vikings retreated to the eastern lands that became known as ‘Danelaw’ (literally, under Danish Law, nowadays East Anglia, Essex and East Midlands). Guthrum was baptised with the Christian name Aethelstan and Alfred became his godfather. Eventually Wessex, under Alfred’s successors, reconquered Danelaw and united most of England.
Novels such as Edward Rutherford’s “Sarum” and Bernard Cornwell’s “The Last Kingdom” cover these events, as does Michael Hurst’s series “Vikings” for the History Channel. Books and DVD Box Sets are available for guests to enjoy and learn from during longer stays.

I am a semi-retired businessman (yes, it’s an old photo!) and I look after the admin side of our Airbnb activity. My wife Rhona is in charge of everything else. We are long term residents of Edington and live next door to Holly Cottage. We take pride in our response times, cleanliness and Holly Cottage’s reputation and reviews. We look forward to hearing from you.
