“Very nice, but forget about the hot tub!”
We stayed at this house for a weekend in November with two other families. The house is lovely, especially the under floor heating, and we had a great time. There are a couple of things that could be improved, such as better curtains on the downstairs windows, the existing ones are pretty see through and given that the property is right on the road they do not afford a lot of privacy.

We stayed at this house for a weekend in November with two other families. The house is lovely, especially the under floor heating, and we had a great time. There are a couple of things that could be improved, such as better curtains on the downstairs windows, the existing ones are pretty see through and given that the property is right on the road they do not afford a lot of privacy. Also, the description states that there is parking for four cars, which makes it sound like there is reserved or allocated parking, which is not the case. We didn't struggle to find parking, but it's worth noting that the parking is not part of the property. Finally, the property could be made a bit more child friendly by providing a few plastic cups, plates and bowls. The only thing we were unhappy with was the hot tub, which basically did not work. There was very little wood provided, and no kindling, and what wood there was was very damp. But even after spending our own money on kindling and wood, and heating the tub for over six hours, the water was still not warm enough to sit in comfortably. The house is a lovely place to stay even without the tub, so that wouldn't put us off going there again, but if a hot tub is what you're after you're not going to find it here.

About the location
Royal Wootton Bassett 5.6 miles; Malmesbury 10 miles; Chippenham 8.6 miles; Bath 28 miles.
Bradenstoke is a village in Wiltshire located on a hill on the southern side of Braydon River and to the north of the disused Lyneham airfield. Largely consisting of a long and narrow main street, the village has a church, two chapels, a village hall and a pub, the Cross Keys Inn. In medieval times Bradenstoke was an important place and was the site of the Augustinian priory of Clack founded in 1142 by Walter D'Evereaux, some of its ruins are still seen today known as Bradenstoke Priory. The larger village of Lyneham, just over one mile away, is well served by local businesses including restaurants, pubs and shops, whilst the larger community of Royal Wootton Bassett is just over 5 miles away. The friendly market town of Wootton Bassett was granted Royal patronage in 2011, due to its link with the repatriation of military personnel who sadly lost their lives serving their country overseas. It boasts a weekly market and also offers a good selection of local shops and inns, and provides an ideal touring base from which to explore the attractions of Wiltshire and beyond. The town is close to the historic Lydiard Park, Bowood and Longleat, with the ancient sites of Avebury and Stonehenge nearby. Visit the charming town of Malmesbury and the Cotswold Water Park, and with the historic cities of Bath, Oxford and Salisbury all easily accessible.
