Lock Quay Cottage is situated in the picturesque town of Bradford on Avon only 6 miles or a 12-15 minute train ride from Bath. As well as a wide range of shops and restaurants, Bath boasts the new Thermae Spa, the Roman Baths, the Costume Museum, the Pump Rooms or you could even watch a match at the famous Rugby Club.

Historic sites such as Stonehenge, Avebury and Silbury HIll are all within easy driving distance. The town is easily accessible from Bristol or London airports and any of the ports.

Places such as Oxford, Cheltenham, Salisbury, Weymouth and Bristol are also within easy reach by train and there is a direct train service to London.

There are many beautiful areas to walk locally as Bradford on Avon is close to the Cotswolds and the Mendips. Cheddar Gorge and Burrington Combe are about 45 minutes drive or closer to home there are pretty towns such as Corsham, Lacock (including the Abbey) and Castle Combe. There are also many National Trust properties including Stourhead. Nearby are the attractions, house and Safari Park at Longleat & Centre Parcs. The adventure playground and house of Bowood are also close by and Paultons Park theme park is a day trip away. The Steam Museum at Swindon (next to a factory outlet shopping mall) and @Bristol (a modern museum) also make great days out. This is England at its very best!


The cottage is set right in the heart of the tourist area of the charming town of Bradford on Avon, opposite the canal and within view of the lock, with many activities right on your doorstep. Take a canal boat trip, hire canoes or hire bikes and tour along the towpath all within one minute of your doorstep. Play tennis for free and enjoy the park areas in view of the cottage, explore the local smaller shops, including several antique shops. The 14th century Tithe Barn is only a 2 minute walk away and is surrounded by craft shops and a park that leads down to the River Avon offering riverside walks. Cut along the riverside path to reach the local indoor swimming pool and railway station or to visit the historic Saxon Church.

You will be spoilt for choice for places to eat out, including traditional English pub food, Thai, Indian, or Chinese restaurants and tea shops too. Try out the Boatman's Breakfast at the Lock Inn opposite the cottage or the famous Bridge Tea Rooms serving a traditional Victorian afternoon tea.

"Difficult to find there weren't any"

The cottage is exactly as described and much more. Everything was perfectly set by the owners. We had a base group of 9 and at times 10 people staying. Not only did the sleeping cater for this amount but the kitchen is more than adequately equipped for all too.

The location of the town is close to Bath and many other nice places of interest. The cottage sits 20 metres from the lock and overlooks the waterways and the pub. Talking of which there are two pubs situated on the canal, both serving food and good beer, within 3 minutes walk. However the most accommodating and friendly place to eat was the Lock Inn Café which can be seen from the cottage
