The West Country region

Bradford on Avon is a sought after, picturesque small town with beautiful cottages, houses and shops with plentiful pubs and restaurants and canal or river walks. Pure charm and much photographed, once discovered you will want to return. Honey coloured stone properties and the river Avon plus the Kennet & Avon canal run through - a joy to behold.

Being so close to Bath, this is going to be your main point of interest but this area has so much to see! Longleat, The Cotswolds, Avebury, Stonehenge and the maritime history of Bristol are all within easy driving distance and public transport links are excellent. Bath University is also easy to access from, the cottage.

London is 90 minutes from Bath, by train, making a day trip easy and you can walk to the train station in Bradford on Avon which also offers direct London train services to Waterloo, or you can take a 12 minute journey and change at Bath for London services to Paddington.

Children's playground within walking distance and the pubs and restaurants are all child friendly, providing a warm welcome.

Somerset is a county rich in farmland and produce - Cheddar cheese is one famous natural product and Wells Cathedral is famous for brass rubbings and the swans who feed at the ringing of a bell. Wookey Hole Caves nearby and Cheddar Gorge are both naturally formed places of interest and the Outlet Village at Street is perfect for a shopping trip for bargain hunters.

Glastonbury and Salisbury offer an interesting day out and Stonehenge is about 40 minutes away.

Wiltshire has many charming towns, Corsham, Castle Combe, Lacock (a National Trust Village) and Biddestone which all boast the local Cotswold architecture. The Kennet and Avon Canal, which passes through Bradford on Avon, gives the opportunity of many interesting walks and the River Avon provides boat trips.


The Fashion Museum, 1 Royal Crescent, The American Museum, The Roman Baths, The Pump Room are all popular attractions as well as the wealth of Georgian architecture including the famous crescents and The Circus.

Bradford on Avon boasts 17 pubs and restaurants and the town is often referred to as a miniature Bath as it is set on hills and is built of honey coloured stone. From great pub food to a locally favoured Thai restaurant, most tastes are catered for. It is a delightful town which still has market day every week. The Bridge Tearooms have a reputation for transporting guests to a bygone era and serve wonderful old fashioned cakes, teabreads and crumpets with pots of real leaf tea and tea strainer! It is one of the last bastions of the independent shop keeper with a wide selection of shops, boutiques and antiques shops.

There is an indoor swimming pool and leisure centre within Bradford on Avon and two playgrounds for children within walking distance.

Golf, horseriding, fishing and cycling all locally available.

"Perfect location close to Bath"

The cottage was perfect for two people. It was tastefully decorated and extremely clean. The location in Bradford on Avon was excellent for touring the surrounding areas. Even though the cottage was … More

Thank you for your kind review of Kemble Cottage, which is much appreciated. The high level of attention we give to the housekeeping is very important to us. The hill is a very good way of keeping fit and makes us all feel we have justified that meal at one of the great eateries! I hope you will come and stay again soon..... very best wishes, Jan

"Simply Wonderful"

I won't go over what other reviewers have already posted but just to say the cottage is wonderful in every way. We explored the little nooks and cranies of BOA to find the most charming building… More

Thank you for your kind review and it sounds as though you really explored the town and made the best of this beautiful area. Your comments regarding parking directly outside the cottage (or lack of!) are very helpful for potential guests, when deciding whether the cottage is suitable for them. Very best wishes, Jan

"Comfortable cottage with character"

Comfortable and well-appointed cottage with a well-equipped kitchen. Spotlessly clean. Parking on the (steep) street was limited - we got the last place when we arrived late at night.Had a celebration… More

Thank you very much for your kind review and I am pleased you enjoyed the cottage. With regard to the heating, there are instructions on how to advance the heating so that it stays on - always a tough one to get right for everyone, although we do try our best! Very best wishes, Jan

"Practically Perfect in Every Way"

We stayed for one magical month at Kemble Cottage and it is, by far, the best rental experience we have ever had. The town of Bradford-on-Avon itself is charming (it looks as though it was lifted out… More

"Charming, comfortable and clean!"

We really enjoyed our stay at Kemble Cottage, one of the nicest cottages we have stayed at. The decor is lovely and the place was spotlessly clean. I loved the history of the cottage and am disappointed that I didn't see a ghost! The cottage has a lovely happy vibe and we were very comfortable there. It was a lovely base to come home too at the end of each day, we appreciated the free wifi connection and the welcome goodies that were left for us - very nice to be able to have a cup of tea and biscuit on our arrival at the end of a long journey without having to go to the shops first. Hubby liked the wine! Daughter liked the smarties! It all felt very welcoming, thank you.

Thank you for your review and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. It is always a pleasure when the little thoughtful things are remembered and appreciated and I am so glad this helped you settle in. I hope you will come and stay again. Best wishes, Jan

"Excellent - highly recommend"

A home away from home sums this up.
High quality appliances show that the owner cares about the property and the tenants. Nothing worse than renting somewhere and finding the owner has saved $5 by buying the cheapest possible iron or kettle. Not the case here - everything is top class.
A great location a couple of minutes walk from cafes and restaurants. Relatively easy to find a place to park the car. Happy to stay here again next time we're in the UK.

Thank you very much for your kind review, it was a pleasure to have you to stay. I like to provide the level of equipment and extra thought I would wish to find... the cottage and our visitors deserve the "extra mile". I look forward to welcoming you back next time you are in the UK - our many Australian guests count among our most loyal! Best wishes, Jan

Thank you for your kind review, which is much appreciated. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and wish you good luck in your house-hunting! Best wishes, Jan

"Kemble Cottage is one of our best memories for a week in Bradford-on-Avon!"

We only have positive things to say about our week long stay in Kemble Cottage. The tasteful ambience, warm welcome, and care in every nook; a well-situated ,two-storeyed, well-restored taste of luxury in a beautiful town. We appreciated the personal link from the time of booking the cottage from Australia, to our arrival, giving us helpful hints on things to see and places to go, to help pre-plan our week.and during our stay to make sure all was well. We arrived with hope and departed with beautiful memories and a friendship. Thanks Jan.

It was such a genuine pleasure to meet you both and it has certainly made us think a trip to Australia is definitely on the cards in the not too distant future. Your enthusiastic, positive attitude really is refreshing and I am so pleased Kemble Cottage provided that extra special welcome for your stay in this area. Thank you again! My very best wishes, Jan
