The Canal Barn at Upper Foxhangers Farm forms part of a courtyard of traditional farm buildings that are set in the confines of a Grade 2, 18c farmhouse that has been sympathetically converted to provide a luxury holiday cottage with a contemporary feel. The cottage has airy rooms with open beams, log burner and en-suite facilities.
Upper Foxhangers Farm is located on the southern edge of the village of Rowde at the foot of the historic Caen Hill flight of locks and the accommodation has south facing views across the farm's dew pond and surrounding meadows. There is plenty of space for children to run around and explore.
The canal is an integral part of the farm and can be loacted through a gate from the field, the brightly coloured narrowboats pass by regularly on their way up and down the flight of locks. Just the place to relax and watch the moorhens, ducks and occasional swan fly in. Cycle the tow path to Bradford on Avon or Bath, stopping at the plenty of pubs to refresh yourself a long the way. A Perfect base to explore the historic Wiltshire landmarks, take a canal boat ride or relax and fish by the canal edge.
