The town prospered in Georgian times when many of its finest buildings were erected. Today Devizes can boast nearly 500 listed buildings, probably the highest concentration anywhere in England.StonehengeOne of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks.

“Beautifully restored coach house with all the amenities...”
We stayed for 2 nights with our family of 5. Very comfy beds and every amenity imaginable! Owner is very friendly and so accommodating. A perfect stay just outside of the city. We loved settling in having fantastic sleeps, beautiful clean bathroom, laundry facilities, wifi, deck with table and chairs outside. We would have loved to stay longer if time allowed. Perfect if wanting to visit Bath or walk in the Cotswolds! Kids loved our walk through the old town of Lacock.
The accommodation was fantastic with many extras - like Dvd, CD player, a huge bed with superior linen, full length mirror, bedside tables, , well appointed kitchen. all new things. There are even condiments in the cupboard. And Tim is a very nice caring host!!
Beautiful accommodation with every thing you could need. Bonus that we could stay just one night, but would have liked to stay for more.
“What A Great Place to Stay”
The cottage was everything we wanted . It was quiet and peaceful and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It was spacious and very well decorated and the furniture was very comfortable. It was very clean. The owner Tim was friendly and helpful and didn't distrub you whilst staying at the cottage.
The Whitley Coach House is an outstanding property for a couple who want a quiet get away. The property is well equipped and is great for those who want to self-cater. The kitchen is well stocked. Large flat-screen television and broad-band internet was a welcome surprise. The bed was hand made and the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The rental is close to Lacock Abbey and this is a must-see.
“5 Star Stay....Truly Amazing!!”
Tim and his family were absolutely amazing hosts and extremely helpful. The Whitley Coach House is an exceptional place to stay. It is very comfortable, hidden behind the main Grade II Listed Georgian House in very quiet surroundings and within a 25 minute drive into Bath City center. The photos are a true reflection of The Coach House - very clean, spacious and refurbished to very modern standards. You will find everything you need for your stay, just bring your food and get cooking!
“Lovely, relaxing, great size and fantastic location”
We had a great time staying at the coach house. The owner was extremely welcoming and helpful. Really comfortable and great location for exploring Bath and surrounding areas.
“Perfect for friends catching up”
The owner was extremely helpful. The coach house was spacious and clean and had everything we needed.
Thank you very much for the review, I hope you, your friends and anyone else who stays enjoys Whitley Coach House so much that it becomes a regular place to stay!
The owner couldn't have been more attentive. A beautiful place to stay - quiet and well equipped. Close to lovely pubs. As a family we did Bath and Oxford. We will be back!
