English charm in abundance awaits guests staying at The Coach House. When we visited and inspected this delightful barn conversion (Manor Cottages annual inspection) we absolutely fell in love with what the owners have created from what was once the old cart stable to the manor house (that the owners' live in). The period charm remains in tact with oak trusses and beams and even the original box dividers remain all evident all mixed with some beautiful touches and in this delicious holiday home, the furnishings are lavish and stylish and give it a really unique feel. We love it.

Holt, which is located to the east of Bath, is the home to the National Trust 'Court's Gardens' which is one of the region's finest gardens, open to the public on most days, but please check. The location is convenient for many other day trips including The Westonbirt Arboretum (25 mins) which is delightful, the stunning and unspoilt village of Castle Combe (15 mins), Lacock and Dyram Park both very nearby. Equally any number of attractive villages are all nearby and well worth a visit.
6 mins drive away is Bradford upon Avon, which is a beautiful village-come-town with some attractive achitecture and a hosst of antique shops. Perhaps most appealing is the heart of Royal and Ancient Bath with excellent tourist attractions, shops and restuarants which is about 12 mins away. There is regular public transport to the city
The house sits on the edge of the village Holt. This is a small, working village about 3 miles from the famous Georgian town and antique centre of Bradford upon Avon. The village dates back to the 17th Century and has an attractive collection of period buildings. There are two pubs in the village, but The Tollgate Inn is certainly worthy of mention, with a great reputation for excellent food and wide selection of local beer (they also have a Deli Shop too). This is about 5 mins walk. The second pub is on the village green and about 3 mins walk.
