The warmest of welcomes to May Cottage Bed and Breakfast
Situated in Thruxton, a beautiful village on the outskirts of Andover, with easy access to attractions such as: Stonehenge, Thruxton racing, the Hawk Conservancy and Highclere Castle. The web site hopes to show you around the 17th Century Cottage and the beautiful countryside it is situated in.
May Cottage is my family home and has been for over 19 years. It’s a quaint cottage that dates back to 1740 and is set in the heart of the quiet, picturesque village of Thruxton with it’s Post Office and local bus service, two old Inns serving snacks and food, yet it lies just a quarter of a mile to the north of the A303.
The village of Thruxton is a tranquil place now that the London - Exeter turnpike no longer cuts through its heart. It was a very different place when the village acted as a staging post on the arduous journey to the wild south west. Passengers lodged at the George Inn, carriages and horses at the barn in the grounds of May Cottage.
