Our cottage with beautiful views of the Kennet & Avon Canal and the Westbury White Horse is situated in the beautiful, historic town of Bradford-on-Avon. Just 10-minutes' walk from the train station, it's the perfect base for exploring Bath (and its amazing Christmas market), Bristol and the surrounding area. Tucked away off the main road, this newly renovated beautiful home is a peaceful haven with award-winning restaurants, pubs, quaint boutique shops and delis a gentle amble away.

The space
You will have a stone-built cottage, that dates from 1700s, to yourself during your stay. This delightful hideaway is still a home, the owner Pete is away for prolonged periods of time, and his presence is only felt via music, a few books and knick knacks.

The self-catering cottage is fully equipped and has been recently refurbished to a high standard and sleeps up to 2 people.

The cottage benefits from a comprehensively equipped modern kitchen with a dining table. In the sitting room area you'll find comfy designer reading chairs, sofa, TV and a log burner – available November to February. The newly-refurbished bathroom has a large, walk-in shower and illuminated mirror above the sink.

The bedroom consists of a comfortable double bed, fluffy duvet with high-count cotton bedding, chest of drawers and mirror.

Hidden behind a quirky, sliding barn door you'll find a washer-drier, ironing board and iron.

Outside, the well-maintained garden has a paved seating area that is the perfect, peaceful spot to take in the view, listen to the birds and share a bottle of wine.

With your stay at the cottage, you will be welcomed by tea, coffee and milk supplies. Fresh bedlinen and towels will also be provided. In the winter months, for stays of two nights and more we'll lay a fire ready to go in the log burner for your first night. Wood for further nights can be supplied at a cost of £5 a bag.

The cottage also benefits from:

- Free unlimited and speedy Wi-Fi for guests who bring their own laptop & internet devices.

- Flat screen TV with access to Netflix and BBC iPlayer

- Bluetooth speaker

- Shower with 24-hour on-demand hot water

- Central heating

- Fan oven, electric hob, fridge-freezer, kettle, toaster, filter coffee machine, washing/dryer machine, dishwasher

- Hairdryer

- Iron and ironing board

- FREE on street parking

Check-in time is from 4.30 and check out is at 10.00am.

Please note:
Free parking is on Wine Street, which is a one-way road accessed at the top of the town. You can usually find a space, and it could mean a short 3 minute walk to the house. The cottage is a little gem that's tucked away on a traffic-less lane, which is quite steep in places, so please take note if you have mobility issues.

Access to the cottage is via stone and wooden steps, and along a winding path to the front door. People with mobility issues may find the stairs both outside and in the house difficult to negotiate.

Although there is room for a baby/toddler travel cot in the bedroom, due to the open, wooden stairs with no handrail (see photos) we do not feel it would be suitable. However, please do contact us as we are flexible, but you will be staying at your own risk.

No smoking so permitted in the house or porch.

Guest access
Guest will have the whole house and garden with stunning views.

Other things to note
Please do take note of the open stairs with no handrail.

Location

Wiltshire, England, United Kingdom

The Cottage is tucked away in the beautiful town of Bradford-on-Avon, United Kingdom.

Voted as the best place in to live in England by the Sunday Times in 2015, come and see this picturesque, Instagram-worthy miniature Georgian-style town which has been the backdrop to many TV and film productions. The town's history goes back many centuries. Take time to wander down to the Saxon Church, cross the river to the Tithe barn, and explore the wonder of the Bath stone architecture in The Shambles. If you want to learn more, our museum is packed with archeological finds - revealing the town to be an important trading hub for over a millennia.

If you arrive by train, you'll step onto the platform of the pretty station designed and built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. We're proud that our station has direct links to London, Bristol.

Once you've settled into the cottage, take a walk down into the town through the narrow lanes, stop off and take in the breathtaking view at the Chapel of St Mary Tory, then visit our independent shops. If you love your food, you'll love Bradford-on-Avon, from gastro pubs to a tapas restaurant, Italian eateries to a Thai restaurant you'll be spoiled for choice - you can even walk along the canal to The Lock Inn and dine on a canal boat or in the garden of the Canal Tavern. If time is tight, we have some lovely cafes too - for example, take afternoon tea on fine bone china at the Victorian Bridge Tea rooms, enjoy light lunches and lovely homemade cakes at The Teapot, or grab a snack in the ancient Coffee Barn near the canal.

After you've eaten, you'll want to burn off those calories. Swim a few lengths at the indoor pool next to the river, or take advantage of the many walking routes in the area. Why not take a stroll along the canal to Avoncliff where you may be lucky enough to spot Heron, Kingfishers and deer roaming on the opposite bank? You can also hire bikes in the town, and ride the 10 miles along the canal to Bath - the large Georgian city and popular tourist attraction. Famous for its beautiful architecture, Roman Baths, grand cathedral and not forgetting the world-famous Christmas market (18 Nov- 15 Dec 2019). If you're after more relaxing break, you can reach Bath by train in 15 minutes.

Bradford-on-Avon’s is a central location that is perfect as a base to discover Wiltshire, Somerset and Avon.
