"Difficult to find there weren't any"

The cottage is exactly as described and much more. Everything was perfectly set by the owners. We had a base group of 9 and at times 10 people staying. Not only did the sleeping cater for this amount but the kitchen is more than adequately equipped for all too. The location of the town is close to Bath and many other nice places of interest. The cottage sits 20 metres from the lock and overlooks the waterways and the pub. Talking of which there are two pubs situated on the canal, both serving food and good beer, within 3 minutes walk. However the most accommodating and friendly place to eat was the Lock Inn Café which can be seen from the cottage

"Great house, lovely location and well managed"

Stayed here with a group of friends. Very well placed house, with very nice decor and very well-equipped. The management was excellent also, and would recommend it to anyone.

The cottage was absolutly amazing and so spacious. It was just perfect for us. It was very clean and very well equipped. The welcome basket was a very nice touch. The beds were super comfy and the shower just amazing. Can't recommend it enough.

"5* accommodation at a realistic price!"

Lock Quay Cottage in Bradford on Avon is 5* accommodation for 9 adults with excellent living and dining/cooking space. Nine members of my family stayed at the cottage for week in August in preparation for our daughter's wedding in West Lavington with the reception held at The Barn at Wick Farm. It is excellently placed at the side of the Kennet and Avon canal and close to the very charming town centre. Lots of places to visit in the area and plenty of coffee shops and tea rooms to visit after a day sightseeing. Parking is limited but with 5 cars, we managed to park 3 outside and offroad at the cottage and sufficient space locally to park the other two. Excellent welcome pack awaited us with all the essentials before having to visit the local Sainsburys, just a 5 minute walk away!! Would definitely recommend a visit to this cottage - the bedroom in the roof space is like a sanctuary away from the rest of your group!!
