From the owner

This delightful light and airy cottage, in the lovely peaceful village of Westwood, is just 2 miles from Bradford on Avon and close to the world heritage site of the city of Bath (7 miles).

Recently refurbished, it has two double bedrooms and two bathrooms - one brand new with bath and shower, one with shower toilet and sink.There is a very well equipped kitchen and the dining area opens on to a patio with small enclosed private garden and barbecue. . There is parking for two cars immediately in front of the cottage.

Relax in the comfortable sitting room, reading or watching widescreen TV with Netflix, after a day of sightseeing or enjoying the countryside. There are splendid walks right on the doorstep and further afield as well as bike hire near the canal basin at Bradford on Avon.

The New Inn is the highly rated local village gastropub just a two minute walk away (booking advisable on Friday and Saturday). There is also a popular gastro pub (The Inn) just a mile down the road in the picturesque village of Freshford

Bradford on Avon, with its stunning architecture, offers many opportunities for sight-seeing, eating and drinking. It is a five minute drive away - or a 40 minute stroll on the beautiful Kennet/Avon canal that takes in the 18th century John Rennie aqueduct at Avoncliffe . Drink in the view at the Cross Guns which overlooks it.

Westwood Manor and church are over the road and Iford Manor garden is in easy walking distance.

We are surrounded by a wealth of historic and interesting places: Bath, Stonehenge, Salisbury, the Georgian village of Lacock, Longleat Safari Park and many others. The cottage and location provide you with all the ingredients for a wonderful holiday of sightseeing, fabulous countryside and excellent eating.

Interaction with guest

After bookings guests will be informed of the simple arrangements for collecting and depositing the key. We provide all the information guests may need to make their stay more enjoyable and the cottage itself has a full range of maps and guidebooks. We are following government guidelines on CoViD to ensure guest safety and will update our procedures as this advice changes. We assume guests will also follow government advice. After the departure of our guests, the cottage is fully sanitised and surfaces disinfected. The cottage is then left unoccupied for 24 hours as an additional safety measure. As a consequence we are not able to accept new arrivals on the same day that guests are departing.
