Chippenham 5 miles; Malmesbury 6 miles.
The small North Wiltshire village of Upper Seagry is found in superb countryside only 5 miles north of the bustling market town of Chippenham, and 6 miles from the ancient town of Malmesbury. Close to the southern end of The Cotswolds, this rural location provides a great base from which to explore this fascinating area. There are ample footpaths and bridleways nearby, a visit to Malmesbury - with its 12th century Benedictine Abbey - is a must, whilst a trip to the Cotswold Water Park is a real treat. Westobirt Arboretum, with its extensive collection of trees and shrubs is not to be missed. Within an easy drive can be found the picturesque village of Castle Combe, also well known for its car racing track, and the quaint National Trust village of Lacock, used as the setting for the BBC TV serial Cranford. The impressive Roman city of Bath, Bowood House, and the ancient stone circle at Avebury are also easily accessible. This really is an excellent base for a relaxing and interesting break at any time of the year.

Previous visitors' comments about Oxen Cottage:
The cottage was a converted barn and nicely laid out. It felt very spacious and incorporated a lot of the features of the old barn and at the same time had all the mod cons you need plus more - jacuzzi bath. The owners were very nice and on hand if we needed them. Probably the nicest property we have stayed in!

Beautiful barn conversion, warm and very well furnished. Beds were very comfortable and bathroom was luxurious. Excellent standard of white goods. Peaceful location.

The converted barn was an absolute delight. It was excellent value for money and I would not hesitate to recommend Oxen Cottage to anyone looking for a good location. The owners were very welcoming and their free range eggs tasted lovely.
