Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Set back from the road at the end of a gravel path, this pretty brick and flint building has been imaginatively converted from its original purpose. The owners, who live next door in the former bakery, have refurbished The Bakehouse with immense care, providing a highly attractive base from which to explore this fascinating area. It thoroughly deserves its Visit Britain 4 stars grading.

Beautiful cottage which is very modern and clean. The bed was incredibly comfy as too was the 'snug.' The owners John and Sheila are lovely, kind people who made our stay extra special. We thoroughly enjoyed the welcome pack - especially the flap jacks and bottle of Rosé!
Ideally located, only 5 minutes from Stonehenge, 50 minutes from Bath and 45 minutes from McArthurGlen Designer Outlet for those who want a bargain! There's some great pubs/restaurants close by, as too are there some romantic strolls within the vicinity.
We just enjoyed every second of our stay and were sad to say 'goodbye.'
This cottage is a MUST on so many levels and you will NOT be disappointed!
Thank you for your positive feed-back about The Bakehouse, which I'm sure will be useful for other visitors. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Hideaways Reservations Team.
