“A fantastic 350 year old cottage”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed at Brook Cottage during a family holiday to the UK. It was a fantastic place to stay, 350 yo but with a modern kitchen and bathroom.

The location is fantastic, easy drives to Bath, Stonehenge and Avebury. The local pub, "the Plough" serves wonderful food.

The only thing is - the stairs are steep and a sort of spiral. Our kids loved them but don't stay here if you cant do steep stairs.

“Hard to improve on perfection”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The cottage was everything we had hoped it would be and more. Peaceful location but within easy access to Bradford On Avon.Deborah was very
helpful and we appreciated her advice on catching the train into Bath so much
easier than looking for parking.
The cottage was perfect and was well furnished and had everything you could
have wanted. So much to see and do in the environs.Would book again.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Brook Cottage was a very family friendly holiday cottage about 5 miles outside Bath. The service from the owners was very good and their house is very well maintained. We were greeted by Wendy who gave us a run over the house and how to use the lovely cooker. The owners were very accommodating and even managed to find a stair-gate for out 18 month old son.

I loved the old beams, and although I am six foot three inches tall, I only hit my head once on the beam going up the stairs. Although only two bedrooms, they are a good size and there were three adults and two children staying, and we had enough space.

The mobile phone reception is not very good in the house, but you can get incoming calls on the landline phone which is very helpful.They have WiFi which we found to be essential.

The private patio garden was a treat! We had good weather all week, so were able to have breakfast in the garden every morning, as well as our evening meals. The kids loved playing hide and seek in the garden which goes round the whole house. You can but six fresh eggs for £1.50 from the farmer up the lane which we did every morning.

Brook cottage is ideally located to go into Bath, but we only went into Bath once, as we were trying to escape all that hustle and bustle! We went out locally into Bradford on Avon to some of the stately homes and gardens in the surrounding area which are wonderful!

It was difficult to find Brook Cottage so I suggest using a Satnav.

Brook Cottage is a very nice quiet Hamlet and has a sense of history, and the local people are very friendly.

I will certainly be going back to Brook cottage in the future.

Management Response

Thank you so much for the wonderful and postive response. We would love to have you back. Lindsay and I are staying there this weekend.

As to directions - we will attempt to make it easier to find. The cottage next dooe, The Ottery, is nearing completion and will be on the holiday market in a couple of months. It does provide off street parking for Brook as well as a stainwell that will not threaten your 6 ft 3 in frame. You might consider it in the future.
