Lodge | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Situated right at the top of Box Hill, Grove Lodge is a handsome cedar barn with stunning views across the valley to Bath. Newly built and set in the grounds of a beautiful 40-acre farm in the Cotswolds, the lodge is a single storey two bedroom home big enough to accommodate two couples or a family whilst being intimate enough for a romantic break. Finished to a very high specification the lodge is the perfect combination of country cottage style with all the modern comforts you'll need for a relaxing stay. Grove Lodge offers the privacy and peacefulness of a Cotswold retreat and yet is only five miles from the heart of Bath.
In addition to Grove Lodge, Grove Farm also offers the hugely popular one bedroom cottage (Groveside - search 75898) and will soon be able to offer a stunning three bedroom barn with the most spectacular views across the valley.

The West Country region
Somerset's beautiful countryside has attracted many famous individuals throughout history; including Sir William Wordsworth, an English poet laureate of the 19th Century. Somerset has great historical significance, and has played a part in every period including the Roman Conquest, the Norman invasion, the War of the Roses, and even right up till the present day!
Along with the rest of South West England, we have a temperate climate which is generally wetter and milder than the rest of England. The average annual sunshine totals between 1,400 and 1,600 hours.
There are many tourist attractions within easy driving distance, such as Stonehenge, Longleat House and Safari Park, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole…
Grove Lodge is set within the grounds of Grove Farm, a 40 acre smallholding in the Cotswolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The surrounding area is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest. We are officially part of Wiltshire but are right on the boundary of Bath and North East Somerset.
A superb local pub, The Quarryman's Arms, is only a few minutes walk from Grove Lodge and is well known for its great food and fabulous views. Enthusiastic walkers will enjoy the nearby public footpaths. Only a few yards from Grove Lodge's doorstep, it is possible to join the route of one of Geoff Mullett's favourite walks (author of Walk West) - a picturesque and typically English walk that will take you through sunny meadows and shady woodland high above the valley floor to give amazing views, passing the impressive Hazelbury Manor house along the way.
For those interested in caves and potholing, Box also has a labyrinth of caves and tunnels to explore. Box is the location of Brunel's world famous Box Tunnel, and the impressive portal is at the boundary of Grove Farm's land and can be admired from a a viewing platform.
The village of Box is a very short drive away from Grove Lodge (or a healthy hill walk!) and has a post office/newsagent, coffee house, cafe, butchers and mini-supermarket. Box also has a pop-up cinema, the Panache Picture House, which shows at the village hall. Neston Farm shop is a ten minute drive away and has an artisan bakery, delicatessen, organic meat, coffee shop and a play area for children with animals to feed. The pretty medieval town of Corsham is 3 miles away and offers more shopping, places to eat and drink, as well as more to see. The unspoiled National Trust village of Lacock (where Harry Potter, Emma and Pride and Prejudice were filmed, among others) is 8 miles away and an idyllic place to visit with its beautiful Abbey and charming tearooms. A day trip to Castle Combe is also strongly recommended - it was voted the prettiest village in England was also where Spielberg recently filmed 'Warhorse'.
Bath is 5 miles away. A designated World Heritage Site, Bath is one of Britain's most beautiful and historically significant cities with breathtaking Roman, Medieval, Georgian and Victorian architecture - all within walking distance of its imposing cathedral and romantic riverside park.
Bath's appeal is guaranteed to impress the most discerning of visitors; indeed the Royal Crescent, the Circus, Pulteney Bridge and the Pump Room are noted among Britain's finest architectural treasures. The city also offers an incredible range of museums, award winning restaurants, galleries, gardens, theatre and cinema within the city limits.
If you're a golfer, Kingsdown Golf Club, the oldest club in Wiltshire, is only three miles from Grove Lodge - a downland course measuring 6,501 yards and renowned for its beautiful scenery. Green fees are £40.
Bath Golf Club, established in 1880, has one of England's oldest and finest inland courses - green fees are also £40.
