    “This charming cottage is in a really good location and is very comfortable and well equipped.”

Beds are comfortable, the lounge is spacious and the kitchen very well equipped. A private off road parking spot was a real bonus.

We highly recommend this cottage and would definitely return ourselves.

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.

The second room is on the top floor, with wooden beams and a double bed as well as expansive views across the town and towards the lock.

The interior is completed with a contemporary bathroom which continues the light and airy feel.

Outside, the cottage has a pretty, walled patio garden to the side with a table and chairs, and BBQ.

About the location

BRADFORD-ON-AVON

Trowbridge 3.3 miles; Bath 7.7 miles; Chippenham 12.6 miles.

Bradford-on-Avon is a picturesque, historic former mill town. Sitting beside the River Avon and Kennett and Avon Canal, it is the ideal springboard for boat trips. There are numerous beautiful walks, including strolls through the historic town centre. The surrounding countryside has myriad possibilities for longer walks, and cycling. In the evenings there is a great range of high-end restaurants, as well as more informal dining. The stunning city of Bath, with so much on offer for all tastes, is easily accessible by train or car. From the striking architecture of the Georgian terraces to the celebrated Roman Baths and wonderful abbey, and with ample opportunities to eat out or indulge in a bit of retail therapy, you are spoilt for choice. Alternatively, you might drive to nearby 13th century village of Lacock, or to Castle Combe, and enjoy discovering the numerous “gastro” pubs in the region.
