    “We have holidayed with Sykes before and found them to be great.”

    This year was no different. Lock view cottage is a lovely little cottage right on the canal with easy access to amenities in town but also as a base for exploring the region.

    This year was no different. Lock view cottage is a lovely little cottage right on the canal with easy access to amenities in town but also as a base for exploring the region. It's cosy, clean and really comfortable. We couldn't ask for anything more! The welcome basket was really nice too, on that first night when you're settling in. It shows the owners really care about the experience.

The property

In the unspoilt town of Bradford-on-Avon, Lock View Cottage is a delightful three-storey cottage overlooking the Kennet & Avon Canal. It is a short stroll from the town centre, with its historic sights, riverside bistros and conveniently located station.

Bikes and canoes can be rented from within 100 metres of the property.

The cottage is ideal for visiting the richly historic areas of Wiltshire, Avon and Somerset.

It is well-suited to couples, friends or families wishing to explore Bradford-on-Avon, the stunning Georgian city of Bath, and the surrounding countryside.

Styled as a modern holiday home, you will feel the sense of character soon as you enter the porch.

The living room is comfortably furnished, with casement windows and stable-style doors.

A woodburner-effect fire will warm you during cooler evenings.

A well-equipped kitchen, with quarry-tiled floor, features a pine table with seating for up to four people.

The two beautiful bedrooms overlook the canal and town.

The first comprises original wood panelling, a cast-iron fireplace and two single beds.
