19 of us stayed in this house for 2 nights and had the best weekend! The house is huge but at the same time cosy enough. Facilities are lovely, modern and well kept. The host, Jo, is a delight to deal with - excellent communication and a very personable, lovely lady. The garden and sauna are beautiful as well, even in the winter. Would highly recommend this property!
The Wilderness is really well catered for for large groups of people. not only does it sleep a large number very comfortably, there are also more than enough teapots, glasses, cutlery etc! It was a lovely location, big dining table for us all to sit together, and cozy living room with a fire. We had a great time, and I'll definitely keep this place in mind for any future big gatherings I need to organise!
I booked the wilderness to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday with our family (13 adults and 3 young children) 16 of us fitted in perfectly and enjoyed an autumn weekend. The weather was wet and cold but the large cottage was warm and very comfortable. The log fire in the lounge was very welcome and gave the place a lovely homely feel. Even in the cold weather the log fired sauna was excellent!! really hot and very clean! The kitchen was fully equipped and we catered for 16 easily!
Would definitely return! Thanks very much Jo!
3 families fourteen in total plus a toddler. Plenty of space both inside and outside. Large fully equipped kitchen with dining room which can easily accommodate all guests. Two sitting rooms and a separate room which can be used as a games room. We were all very comfortable and had a wonderful week.
The house is in a great location with Bath, Salisbury, Longleat all close by with numerous villages and walks to explore.
The owners made us feel very welcome and it is a house we would return to. Excellent house and holiday. Thank you.

I spent ages researching a venue that could cater for my sisters hen party and was pretty apprehensive that the 21 of us might feel cramped wherever we booked. I stumbled across the wilderness and am incredibly happy that I took the plunge and booked it. The photo's do not do the place justice. It was spacious, comfortable and extremely well stocked. Sometimes houses that cater for large groups don't supply plates, cutlery, pots/pans etc etc but the wilderness had everything! I was so pleasantly surprise.
And the Sauna was amazing... they had it all prepared to use so all we had to do was light it. All the people at the Hen party loved it and i definitely can not take the credit.
Jo was so easy to talk to and at the end of an email an phone whenever I had questions. It was a great experience... so much so we're considering having a christmas with the whole family there!
