Lock View cottage
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This lovely cottage sits on a quiet road, overlooking the Kennet and Avon canal, yet is within easy walking distance of the pretty town centre of Bradford on Avon. There are many lovely walks or cycle paths from your doorstep. Take a boat trip along the canal or just wander through the old town and visit the interesting local shops. There is also a large park close by with tennis courts and childrens play areas.
We have retained many original features in the property, including fireplaces, wooden panelling and quarry tiled kitchen, but the cottage has a modern feel. There is also free Wifi and a phone for guests to use.
We provide attractive linen and fresh towels, with good quality crockery and all the cooking equipment you would need. You have a private parking space next to the cottage and a pretty patio garden with BBQ for those warm summer evenings and you will be spoilt for choice when deciding where to eat, with so many pubs and restaurants to walk to.

We take great care of this lovely cottage - all the rooms are well furnished and equipped, and we personally clean and prepare it for our guests, to make sure it is up to our high standard.
On the first floor there are 2 bedrooms and a spotless bathroom, with a good shower. The twin room has an original cast iron fireplace, wooden panelling and views over the canal and town. The double bedroom is on the second floor and has original beams and far reaching views. The quarry tiled kitchen/diner is cosy and well equipped, and the sitting room has leather sofas and a stove style electric fire for extra warmth.

"Lovely picture-perfect cottage for weekend retreat"
Gorgeous little cottage, perfect for weekend retreat from city life. Walking distance from Bradford on Avon - far enough away for peace and quiet, close enough to make it easy distance for restaurants, shops and pubs.
Good tourist advice - walks and where to eat, etc.
Well worth a visit - lovely cottage, lovely village and lovely walking to be had!

"Lovely cottage in perfect location."
We stayed for three nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The cottage is spotless, attractively furnished and has a very homey comfortable feel. There is all you could require from a holiday cottage plus all the extra touches provided by a thoughtful owner.

"Gem of a Cottage"
Lock View was a pleasure to stay in. Linda the owner seem to know what makes a house a home from home (if only for 4 nights) Even down to a mini whisk. We have rented houses, Villas & apartments all over Europe etc for the last 30 years and this has got to have been one of the cleanest and best equipped we have ever stayed in.
Bradford on Avon is a lovely town and a great place to base your holiday in this part of the country. Will be visiting again and will be booking Lock View.

"clean comfortable and very handy to restaurants and shops"
We had a great stay we used the cottage for our home base while we looked around the south of England. The cottage was clean and comfortable we found that having a washing and drying machine very convenient. We were close to the local pubs and had great meals everybody we talked to were very friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to book the cottage again for our next stay in England.
