"Beautiful self catering cottage set in gorgeous old world charm"

We rented this cottage for 5 days with our 21 month old son. We had everything we needed (except air con as the weather was amazing!) There were lovely treats left by Melanie (juice, eggs, breads, bite size biscuit treats) which was a lovely touch by the owner. The linen was crisp and so fresh along with towels and lovely Elemis/Ren products in bathroom. The garden was safe for our little one apart from raised garden at the back but he had so much freedom. The dogs entertained him and us. They were so friendly and playful. We were very close to Bath and Bowood, Castle Combe, Lacock and Longleat. It was such a beautiful unspoilt location and the owners were friendly and helpful and respectful of our space as the cottage is situated in close proximity to owners house. A lot of effort went into this self catering cottage and it showed. I would highly recommend this accommodation and would definitely return. On some occasions we ended up in the narrowest of roads when returning back from day trips so beware!!!! They are narrow and hilly. But it's an adventure!!

"Pristine barn, warm and cosy with great attention to detail"

Really lovely barn, Melanie made us feel very welcome, fresh bread, jam, eggs, butter, milk and juice all waiting for us on arrival.
Warm under floor heating and cosy log burner.
Bath is easily accessible and just a short drive away.
Lots of lovely pubs nearby, lots to do, we will definitely be going back.
