    “Lovely cottage, great location & pleasant owners - however...”
    We've just got back from a week at the Old Storehouse, Bradenstoke which is a renovated old village shop in pleasant surroundings (beautiful scenery, quaint cottages, a pub just next door and a children's play area & dog walking park about 5 minutes stroll away). The cottage has all the amenities you could wish for, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer along with WiFi and a wood fired hot tub & indoor log burner (although we came in the summer so it was never used), plenty of cupboard and ...
    We've just got back from a week at the Old Storehouse, Bradenstoke which is a renovated old village shop in pleasant surroundings (beautiful scenery, quaint cottages, a pub just next door and a children's play area & dog walking park about 5 minutes stroll away). The cottage has all the amenities you could wish for, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer along with WiFi and a wood fired hot tub & indoor log burner (although we came in the summer so it was never used), plenty of cupboard and fridge/freezer space. Also there was plenty of board games, dvds and books in the property which was a pleasant surprise. The hottub was lovely but does take a while to fill (2-3 hours) and subsequently warm up (a further 2-3 hours plus). We were lucky enough to arrive early on the Friday as there was no one in the property as allowed by the owner, which was greatly appreciated and allowed us to make use of the hottub on the day of arrival. Wiltshire is simply beautiful and the location of the property is good (25 minutes from Avebury stone circle, 30 minutes from the beautiful Lacock, an hour from Stonehenge), there's plenty to do in a relatively close proximity if you drive. The locals we spoke to were very friendly and happy to offer you advice on things to do in the area. A negative was that we had noise complaints from nearby neighbours. We're a large family but we have a baby and 3 children between 6-10, we're hardly a rowdy stag do but I think because the village is so quiet, any noise travels so possibly bare that in mind if you visit. As a holiday cottage, people are going to be enjoying themselves but it wasn't nice thinking that we had to have a curfew to appease neighbours. One other negative is that we ran out of logs on the Sunday evening and didn't get more delivered until Wednesday afternoon meaning we had to pick some up out of our own pocket in the mean time. The landlord did apologise for this and stated it was an oversight on his part by forgetting to re-order. If you arrive and think it's likely the logs will need replacing I suggest you do it ASAP. Overall I will give the cottage five stars, the noise complaints are not the landlords or the properties fault, sensitive neighbours and a quiet village are, if you forsee yourselves being noisy, I would possibly reconsider. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't stop from recommending this cottage to others in the future.

About the location

BRADENSTOKE

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.
