"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. Caroline & Steve From Cheshire

"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.

"Beautiful little cottage with lovely views and stunning location"

We stayed in this cottage for a family wedding in bradford on avon in August 2012, the cottage is in a beautiful location right opposite a canal with lovely pubs and cafes.. the walk to the town is only 5 minutes where you'll find some great tea shops and cake shops. The cottage is very homely and we were greeted with some cookies and wine which went down a treat! the rooms are very pretty and extremely clean, we had a lovely stay here and would highly recommend it :-) x

"Fantastic Cottage - Ideal Location"

We stayed at Lockview Cottage in August 2011. Inside the cottage is lovely with everything you need for a perfect holiday. The cottage is in a great location very close to the canal, with plenty of places to eat and drink close by. Bradford on Avon is a lovely town, the valley through to Bath is gorgeous, and canoeing/cycling etc. all close by. We had a fantastic time and will definitely be returning - thoroughly recommended.
