This lovely cottage sits on a quiet road, overlooking the Kennet and Avon canal, yet is within easy walking distance of the pretty town centre of Bradford on Avon. There are many lovely walks or cycle paths from your doorstep. Take a boat trip along the canal or just wander through the old town and visit the interesting local shops. There is also a large park close by with tennis courts and childrens play areas. We have retained many original features in the property, including fireplaces, wooden panelling and quarry tiled kitchen, but the cottage has a modern feel. There is also free Wifi and a phone for guests to use.We provide attractive linen and fresh towels, with good quality crockery and all the cooking equipment you would need.

The rooms are really nice and... more

There was everything we needed for our weekend stay. The beds afforded us a good night"s sleep. But the best thing was being so close to the canal and the Lock Inn and being within walking distance of the centre of Bradford. more

Had a lovely week in this cottage, great location right by the canal with good pubs nearby and easy access to the town. Cottage clean and beautifully decorated. Not a large cottage but good facilities and perfect for me and my children. Good spot for exploring the area - Bath and Longleat are easy trips. more
