Super King-size bed

Sue has many years experience making guests feel comfortable and has been featured in  Lonely Planet and Rick Steves

Please note that Griffin Cottage is a Grade ll Listed building so we are unable to take wheelchairs and our stairs are quite steep


2019 sees the Salisbury Museum with a great programme of events and of course the amazing Wessex Gallery (click pic lower right) also the Cathedral's continuing programme celebrating their Magna Carta. The best written, preserved and the only one still in its original location (click pic upper right). Arundells, the home of the late Sir Edward Heath is great to go around. Cosy rooms with great art and interesting objects and the view of the Cathedral from the garden - wow! (click pic above).



Please note that we are a NO SMOKING (or vaping) and NO PETS house. The cottage is also unsuitable for the disabled and children.


Mark is a Cathedral and Magna Carta guide (docent) and also works in the Cathedral Archives. He can offer personalised visits for our guests. Tours usually last 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes and cost £20 for one or two persons.

About Us

We have lived in Salisbury for some 28 years and are involved in various local scenes so we can offer advice from days out to where to dine.


Salisbury is a very active city with lots going on in the area (Longleat above) so see what is currently on offer.


We can plan your day/week for you. Above is Mompesson House (National Trust) and on this page are some suggestions.

Further Afield

There is probably more to see in the South of England than anywhere else in the country. Above is Arundel Castle and you can see more ideas on this page.
