    “It was a fantastic stay.”

    Our hosts are a lovely family and made sure that everything was tip top for us. The accommodation is fantastic. A really beautiful and spacious annex fitted out to a very high specification. All of the photos on the site are accurate as it is immaculate. Both my wife and I had to work whilst staying here and the internet worked extremely well for both of us (and our son). The grounds around the property are fantastic and we were lucky enough to enjoy some sunny days in the garden. It's well ...

    Our hosts are a lovely family and made sure that everything was tip top for us. The accommodation is fantastic. A really beautiful and spacious annex fitted out to a very high specification. All of the photos on the site are accurate as it is immaculate. Both my wife and I had to work whilst staying here and the internet worked extremely well for both of us (and our son). The grounds around the property are fantastic and we were lucky enough to enjoy some sunny days in the garden. It's well located and easy to find with plenty of parking. I would highly recommend the accommodation to anyone looking to stay in the area. Craig, Claire & Jack

The property

Positioned in a prime spot for accessing the stunning Cotswolds AONB and the city of Bath, Chequers Barn is a beautifully presented milk parlour conversion resting on the outskirts of Corsham.

This Wiltshire holiday home, and Grade 2 listen building, is suited to two couples, attached to the owner's home and enjoying access to luscious shared gardens, it's a fantastic base for outdoor adventures.

Park up in the ample off-road space and hook your car up to the charging point if you need to, before heading inside to hang coats and leave boots in the hall.

Continue through to the open-plan living space, coming upon the fitted kitchen on the right, complete with a handy dishwasher, and a dining table to the left.

Discover a plush corner suite at the other end of the room, positioned before the large TV, with a sofa bed too for accommodating ground-floor living.

A disabled-friendly wet room also lies on the ground floor including a shower chair and handrails, whilst up on the first floor is a contemporary bathroom with a P-shape bath and overhead shower.Also available is a sofa bed on request, consult the owner.

Mind your head on the rustic and traditional ceiling beams as you make your way to the first bedroom, boasting a double bed with elegant lighting and a window overlooking the garden.

The second bedroom is home to twin beds which can be a super-king-size setup on request, along with ample storage and more exquisite beams above.

Enjoy time in the luscious green gardens with a barbecue on hand for warm summer evenings tucking into delicious food at the outdoor furniture, with early morning wanders through the garden and over the stream into the owner's fields to look forward to.

Chequers Barn is ideally placed on the A4 road connecting you to a host of fantastic locations, with the centre of Corsham just down the road, home to scatterings of limestone buildings, many of which are Grade II listed, with shops, restaurants and pubs amidst them.

The grand Corsham Court rests within the town, privately owned but open to the public for viewing the staterooms and gardens, showcasing an excellent art collection and well worth a visit.

The Corsham Almshouse and Schoolroom is another historic building to see, with Grade I listed status, it offers a fascinating insight into education 350 years ago.

Head over to the city of Bath to walk the grand streets and visit the renowned attractions and buildings here, most notably the Royal Crescent, an iconic row of Georgian houses used numerous times for films and TV, now home to The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa and No 1 Royal Crescent, a heritage museum.

Another great day out can be had at the National Trust's Lacock Abbey, Fox Talbot Museum and Village, the former home to the creator of the photographic negative, along with Whitehall Garden Centre which has ice skating at Christmas.

Visit the delightful village of Castle Combe in the Cotswolds AONB, with lots of walking and cycling opportunities amidst the quain and quintessential English villages.

Enjoy exploring this beautiful area of Wiltshire from Chequers Barn.

About the location

CORSHAM

Bath 7 miles.

The attractive small market town of Corsham can be found in North West Wiltshire, only 7 miles from the regal city of Bath. The town offers a vibrant weekly market, and is renowned for its numerous Grade ll listed limestone buildings, many of which have been used as locations for TV series and films including Poldark and The Suspicions of Mr Whicher. Locally, Corsham Court is well worth a visit where the impressive art collection can be admired or visitors can enjoy the scenic parkland, designed by Capability Brown. Easily accessible is the stunning city of Bath, where there is so much on offer, catering for all tastes, from the magnificent architecture of the Georgian terraces to the celebrated Roman Baths and wonderful abbey. With ample opportunities to eat out, or indulge in a bit of retail therapy, you really are spoilt for choice. Alternatively, take the short drive to the 13th century village of Lacock, or to Castle Combe, once named England’s prettiest village. Corsham provides visitors with a charming, historic base from which to explore this diverse area at any time of the year.
