Stone cottage with 2 bedrooms in a quiet lane in a village with gardens
I grew up in a the house behind the cottage but lived elsewhere for many years. I have recently moved back and really enjoy re-discovering the area which has so much to offer. I now live 2 doors away from this holiday property. I retired from my job in the charity sector 2 years ago and am relishing the opportunity to welcome all guests to the area.
Gillian purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Gillian chose Wiltshire
It's a quirky, interesting property with lots of old features but it is very comfortable. It is in a quiet area but close to Bath (20 mins by train/car). The cottage is in a village location but a short drive to Bath and Bradford on Avon, as well as many other places. There are lovely walks in the area. There is one pub within walking distance and others just a short drive away. The closest supermarket is in Bradford on Avon (5 mins by car) which also has lovely restaurants and a canal to cycle or walk along - you can also hire a narrow boat. It is within easy reach of Longleat, Stonehenge, Avebury, Bristol, Lacock, Stourhead and many other National Trust properties. There are cinemas in Trowbridge and Frome and a theatre in Bath. There is a huge range of things to do in the area. We are within an hour's drive of Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge, Wilton House, Hayes Motor Museum and many other attractions for children and families. Stonehenge and Avebury are within easy driving distance. Bristol is easily accessible by train or car and the Science museum is great as is the shopping, the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the Aquarium. We are close to many lovely National Trust properties and gardens.

Great place to stay!
Everything was ideal. Gillian was the perfect hostess. She was so friendly and helpful throughout our entire stay. We had never met such a friendly, helpful and overall interesting person. We would and will recommend her to everyone we know. Chris and Marshall

Beautiful homely cottage
Lovely homely cottage, with all you would need including all kitchen utensils, towels, toilet roll, shower gel etc. Very thoughtful host, and the cottage is in a perfect location for visits to surrounding attractions- longleat is 20mins away. Look forward to staying again, and have recommended accommodation to friends and family. Thank you Gillian
What a lovely review - thank you for taking the time to write it. It was a pleasure to meet you all and thank you for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy.
Lovely & well equipped cottage in a beautiful area
We had a lovely weekend at Gillian’s cottage. We were 2 couples and one small dog and we didn’t miss anything. Lots of thoughtful touches (scones & jam on arrival, fresh eggs, lovely blankets in the bedrooms, toiletries in the bathroom, etc...) and the outdoor space was perfect for our four-legged friend. The beds were very comfortable and the house spotless. Would highly recommend.
Thank you for this review. I am glad you all enjoyed your stay and found it comfortable and spotless. Thank you too for highly recommending the cottage to others.
