The West Country region
Wiltshire is a beautiful county of great diversity. With a population of nearly 430,000 and with much of the county designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Wiltshire is the perfect destination for a relaxing break at any time of the year. Stay where the past meets the present: visit the World Heritage Sites of Stonehenge and Avebury, admire the beauty of our gardens and country houses; walk the White Horse Trail to see our eight white horses carved into the hillsides; meander along the towpath of the Kennet and Avon Canal or take a leisurely wander through our market towns and pick up the real flavour of country life.
The town has many fine examples of architecture from the Saxon, Medieval, Tudor, Georgian and Industrial Revolution periods. Also, to the north of the town, there was an Iron Age Fort and, recently discovered, a very important Roman villa.
The Saxon Church of St. Laurence dates from the early 11th century and is one of the most complete examples of a chapel of that period. It is an unforgettable experience to stand in the tall, narrow stone built nave and admire the two flying angels set high on the wall above.
The stunning Tithe Barn was built in the mid 14th century and inspires the same sort of awe that one feels on entering a great cathedral. Used as a setting for several TV dramas, it is 168 feet long with a massive timbered roof spanning 33 feet beneath stone tiles weighing 100 tons. It retains its old threshing floors and other features from its agricultural past.
Set in the beautiful Barton Farm Country Park, with its ancient packhorse bridge and bordered by the River Avon and Kennet and Avon Canal, is a range of medieval buildings. This was the grange of the nuns of Shaftesbury Abbey who had been granted the manor of Bradford by King Ethelred in AD 1001..
The name of the town originates from the ‘broad ford’ across the River Avon and the bridge is a natural focus for the town. Although widened in the 17th century, it still retains two of the original 13th century arches. A notable feature is the ‘Blind House’ built in the 18th century to serve as the town lock-up.
This tiny chapel, high up on Tory, was largely rebuilt in Victorian times. The town retains many reminders of its dependence on the cloth trade – from the 17th century weavers’ cottages to the later mills which still line the River Avon in the town centre.
Originally opened in 1810 the canal runs from Reading to Bristol. One of the deepest locks on the canal is in Bradford on Avon. Boat hire and boat trips are available from the working wharf and a particularly attractive mile and a half stretch to Avoncliffe is a popular walk.
Built of stone from local quarries, the magnificent Avoncliff Aqueduct carries the canal over the River Avon and the railway line to Bath. A nearby picturesque old pub with its riverside gardens is a popular refreshment stop.
The Shambles, the meat market in medieval times, is now a bustling pedestrian walkway lined with a range of small, independent shops. Among the many attractive shops and eating places in the town centre, is the Victorian Tea Shop which has been named by the prestigious UK Tea Guild as the ‘UK’s Top Tea Place’.
Browse around the museum which is home to a diverse and fascinating collection illustrating the history of the town. Of particular interest is the Christopher Pharmacy, an exact reconstruction of the Victorian chemist’s shop which used to serve the town.

"A lovely place to get away from it all!"
The cottage that we stayed in was absolutely stunning. When we arrived, we were blown away, we looked at it and thought 'instant relaxation'. Our party consited of two couples and a 6 month baby. Our stay was for 4 nights.
Set on a quaint but lovely farm complex, with chickens, goats, ducks, cats and dogs running around, it was a beautiful get away destination from Birmingham!
The cottage had everything we needed, the kitchen was well equipped, and the complimentary local farm eggs, butter, and milk were a loely touch. The cottage was warm, and the log fire was lovely in the evenings, it was cleana and well kept. The local travel information, provided was good, and the welcome fudge and biscuits and fruit were yet again another very nice touch. The owners go to a great deal of trouble to make a good first impression.
There was a games room which was well equipped with a pool table, games, books, table tennis, things for baby's and if we had stayed longer n o doubt we would have ended up there every evening!
The beds were very comforable, andn the rooms were of a very reasonable size for the party that we had.
The cottage is part of w wider complex of B&B rooms, and a large farm house and while wi-fi access is available at the house it wasn't available in the cottage, which really is a shame. The only other minor hitch was the lack of hot water. For a couple it would be fine howver for more than that there simply just isn't enough capacity for everyone to have showers and baths. We were attending a family wedding and getting ready for this proved quite interesting, that said however, the owner really helped out and let us use one of the other bathrooms on the complex, which was great, but it would have been nicer if there was enough hot water in the cottage.
A note about safety - the farm is situated on a very busy national speed limit road, and while the complex is great for families, take note of going for a walk with children, especially if they are in a pushcair. There is no pavement, and the cars and lorry's really fly down the lane. After 5 or 6 steps, down the road, we had to take the baby back and they went in the car. A few of us continued to walk and we were really intimidated by the walk, and didn't feel safe at all. A note in the information about the property would I think be very usdeful to families.
We truly had an amazing stay, we were instantly made to feel at home and welcomed by Pauline, the very friendly and approachable owner. We would consider staying here again. Thanks for a great time.
