Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Bridge Cottage has been recently renovated and restored and now offers charming accommodation in the centre of town. The Cottage has been lovingly decorated and furnished to create a cosy holiday home, perfect for families or couples. All furnishings have been carefully chosen and put together to bring you a mix of vintage style and modern convenience. The cottage has recently been awarded a 4* Gold Award by Enjoy England, Quality in Tourism. By popular demand, we now have Wi-Fi at the cottage.
On the ground floor, there is a spacious kitchen-diner with a stunning feature inglenook fireplace and rustic oak floorboards. An afternoon tea awaits you on arrival, with a choice of delicious, local cakes. Across the wooden panelled hallway is a cosy and comfortable sitting room with TV, DVD player, CD/ipod player and Wii console. There are shutters at the window and a wood burning stove, complete will a supply of logs during the winter months, so you can enjoy cosy evenings in front of the fire.
You will find plenty of books, DVDs, CDs and games throughout the cottage.
Upstairs there are two good sized bedrooms, one twin and one double. Relax in the romantic master bedroom complete with antique French bed, painted furniture and vintage chandelier. Make use of the multi-function, clock-radio IPod dock with its nature sounds to gently fall asleep or wake up to. The pretty twin bedroom has two iron beds and a lovely Victorian fireplace. For your convenience, hairdryers are supplied in each room. A travel cot can also be made available on request, but please bring your own cot bedding.
The traditional style family bathroom has a fixed rain head shower over the bath, rustic oak floorboards and heated towel rail.
We want you to sleep comfortably and so we have provided high quality mattresses and bedding in all rooms. All the duvets and pillows are non-allergenic, premium hollow-fibre supplied by The White Company; with a choice of medium-soft or medium-hard pillows in each room. Enjoy the luxurious, 100% cotton bed linen, along with fluffy towels and bath robes from The White Company. A complimentary assortment of Molton Brown toiletries are provided for our adult guests.
We want each guest to enjoy Bridge Cottage from the moment they arrive. Every effort has been made to make your stay a truly memorable one. So that you don't feel rushed on your day of arrival or departure, you are welcome to arrive at Bridge Cottage from 3pm and depart by 11am – we will do our very best to accommodate a later departure, but due to the popularity of the cottage this isn't always possible.
Whilst there is no private parking at Bridge cottage, free parking is available in the streets around the cottage. Alternatively, there is a public pay and display car park a few minute's walk away. The cottage is located on a one way street - you can easily park and unload outside the cottage.
There is no garden, only a very small courtyard area (not linked to the house) at Bridge Cottage, but guests will find a large area of parkland and open space to enjoy a few minutes walk away.

The West Country region
Bradford-on-Avon is situated in the South West and is just 15 minutes from the Georgian City of Bath. There is so much to see and do in the surrounding area, making Bradford-on-Avon the ideal base from which to explore.
Local National Trust properties include Lacock Abbey, Stourhead, Tyntesfield, Prior Park Landscape Gardens, Clevedon Court, Bath Assembly Rooms and Dyrham Park.
Further afield is Stonehenge, Glastonbury Abbey and Salisbury Cathedral.
Bradford on Avon has many fine examples of architecture from the Saxon, Medieval, Tudor, Georgian and Industrial Revolution periods.
The bridge retains two of the original 13th century arches as well as an 18th century 'Blind House', which served as the town lock-up!
Why not visit the 14th century Tithe Barn retaining its old threshing floors and other features from its agricultural past. It has been used as a setting for several TV dramas. Take a walk through The Shambles. It was the meat market in medieval times, but is now a quaint, pedestrian walkway lined with a range of small, boutique shops. Stop for afternoon tea at the Victorian Tea Shop, named as 'UK's Top Tea Place' by the prestigious UK Tea Guild. If you enjoy museums, then visit the town's museum, home to a diverse collection illustrating the history of the town, along with an exact reconstruction of the Victorian Chemist's shop that used to serve the town. Within Barton Farm Country Park, is a range of medieval buildings known as Barton Grange Farm.
For those that enjoy cycling, bicycles from adult mountain bikes to childrens' bikes, trailers, tag-alongs or child seats can be rented in Bradford-on-Avon. The Kennet and Avon Cycle route is Britain's most popular long-distance waterside cycle-route. From town, you can cycle west towards Bath passing the stunning aqueducts at Dundas and Avoncliff. It is a level 8 mile bike ride to Bath. At Bath you can join the Bristol and Bath Railway path.
Cycling east from Bradford on Avon you reach the Caen hill locks at Devizes where the canal ascends Caen Hill via a flight of 16 locks.
Canadian canoes can be hired near the lock at Bradford on Avon. The canoes are very safe and easy to use and can be paddled solo or with a couple, or a family of four.
If you fancy something a bit more leisurely, then how about taking a trip on a 65ft wide-beam boat along the Kennet and Avon canal. Trips run from Bradford on Avon to the Avoncliff Aqueduct or Widbrook.
Enjoy a day out at the Races in nearby Bath, or experience a Guinness Premiership match at The Rec, home of Bath Rugby. Play Golf at Bowood Golf Club, or try Racing at Castle Combe.
At Thermae Bath Spa there is a choice of 50 treatments and 3 pools, including a roof top pool with stunning views of the city. Visit the Roman Baths, with their remarkably complete remains built around Britain's only hot springs. Come in the summer and enjoy the Opera and Jazz Festival at nearby Iford Manor. In September, enjoy the Jane Austen Festival in Bath, with many events spread out over the 9 day period. In December, for 18 days, the quaint streets and the square between the stunning Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths are transformed into a Christmas shopper's haven – the Bath Christmas markets.
There's so much to do with the kids. Longleat House & Safari park will entertain young and old. Feed the giraffes, reindeer and sealions; get lost in the maze; take a train ride or boat trip; or why not see how many car parts the monkeys can remove in the monkey enclosure! Visit Cheddar Gorge & Caves where kids can abseil, climb or go caving. How about visiting the East Somerset Railway on Thomas the Tank Engine days! On a rainy day, visit Wookey Hole, the West's largest indoor attraction. For something a bit closer to home and a bit different, why not try the West of England Falconry in nearby Monkton Combe where you can learn to fly hawks. Or for a 'quieter' day, take the kids swimming at the pool in Bradford-on-Avon.

"Cosiness away from home"
We stayed for nearly one week in Bridge Cottage and have spent a wonderful time there. We were welcomed with afternoon tea and cupcakes. Lara the owner has furnished everything with love. We found everything what needs one to feel cosy and almost at home.
Lara is very helpful. On morning we have asked for some fire log and coming back from our sightseeing we had the logs next to the fireplace.
Bradford-on Avon is a beautiful little town which can serve as a starting point to explore the gorgeous surrounding. We have enjoyed our stay in Bridge Cottage and the picturesque landscape very much and hope to return soon.
