You could for example spend a morning wandering round the village, of Lacock visiting the quaint bakery and several other shops and there are several pubs and tea shops if you get hungry. If you want to explore the countryside round the village you can take a fairly short easy walk from our information folder.

The Kennet and Avon Canal runs right across Wiltshire from Bath to Devizes, and is within easy walking distance of Brewery Cottage . A walk along the towpath is an enjoyable way to spend a day and it won't cost you anything unless you get tempted by the tea shops along the way!

The towpath is also an excellent cycle path and it provides 56 miles of flat cycling through lovely countryside, perfect for an gentle day out. Bicycles can be hired in various locations along the canal.

Brewery Cottage was used by the brewery workers who worked in a brewery which used to stand opposite the cottage.

In the late 18th century Figgins and Gent Brewery was in Bridewell Street. By 1819 the Bridewell Street brewery had come into the hands of James and Joseph Dredge, represented in 1844 by Joseph Dredge and Co. The only brewery left in Devizes today is the famous Wadworth's who make an equally famous beer 6X which is still delivered around the town by dray horse. They have a visitor's center and tours of the Victorian brewery are well worth taking.

Devizes is close to many famous sights including Bath,Stonehenge, Lacock [the location for many period dramas including Cranford] and Salisbury voted best preserved town in UK.It is also situated on the Kennet and Avon canal and the amazing flight of locks at Caen Hill.

Recently the film War Horse was also filmed in the area in the beautiful Cotswold village of Castle Combe.

The area has many walking and cycling opportunities and there are ancient ruins like the stone circles at Avebury and numerous White Horses to explore, dogs are welcome to stay as well.

The town has all facilities for shopping and eating within a short walk of the house .

The very good local bus and proximity to good rail links mean a car is not always essential for a holiday or short break here and the main line to London is about 20 minutes away at Chippenham [London Paddington can be reached in 1 hour 20 min]

Devises is a great town to base yourself in. A bus ride to Bath or Salisbury, bike rentals available and wonderful historic buildings and museums in town. Lots of shopping venues. The Thursday market is wonderful.

Charming, comfortable and homey, Brewery Cottage was a perfect home base in Wiltshire. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home in Brewery Cottage as soon as we walked in the door. We really enjoyed our stay there, even though the weather was dreary most of the time. There are so many beautiful touches throughout the home, and the backyard garden made it even more special. The kitchen space is compact but well organized and the bedroom and bath upstairs were very comfortable. We also really appreciated the free parking space provided just around the corner. The owner was very responsive when contacted with a question, and helped us get sorted when my husband was sick at the end of our stay there. Devizes is a very interesting and pleasant town to visit as well, although it wasn't our primary destination. We enjoyed the Wiltshire Museum there (wonderful paleolithic and neolithic items as well as Roman and Anglo Saxon) and the canal is fun to see as well. We highly recommend Brewery Cottage and hope to return again some day.

Quirky, atmospheric, beautiful cottage in lovely Devizes.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is small, but contains everything needed for a very comfortable holiday base. The cute patio garden is a real sun-trap and the private parking is close by.I walk with a stroller, but found the stairs easy to manage ( two handrails, ten easy steps); the shower (large), has a grab rail and seat. The bed is very comfortable.It is less than a ten minute walk to the centre of lovely Devizes with its many cafe's, supermarkets and an M&S food hall.

Wiltshire is beautiful, with Bath, Salisbury, Aveburý, Stonehenge, Lacock all being an easy drive away.

We had a wonderful week, as did our dog and we would highly recommend this property to all our friends. We loved it.
