The property

Set within the tranquil grounds of the owner's dairy farm is this detached holiday cottage.

Rode Farm is a picture postcard dwelling where couples can delight in a romantic escape to a remote countryside setting on the outskirts of Rode.

Be welcomed by a lovely seating area to the front, a great spot to sit out with a morning cup of coffee as you breathe in the fresh country air.

Step into the spacious open-plan living space where romantic evenings can be enjoyed, here you can rustle up a home-cooked meal for a date night in the amply-equipped kitchen, fitted with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, and even a dishwasher.

Gather around the dining table for your intimate evening meal, accompanied by delicious home-cooking and a smooth bottle of red wine.

Once dinner has been cleared away, curl up on the sofa together and let the woodburning stove create a cosy ambiance as you decide on a film for the night.

Head up the characterful, spiral staircase towards the sumptuous bedroom, comprising a king-size bed and classic décor, there's also room for a travel cot if bringing one.

Serving the room is a sleek bathroom where you'll find a sumptuous bath and an overhead shower for your convenience.

The property is surrounded by idyllic farmland of a dairy farm and luscious fields where horses are trained, ideal for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life with their other half.

Just over a mile away is the fabulous village centre of Rode where you'll find a local shop and post office, as well as a welcoming pub where you can sink a refreshing pint alongside some pub grub.

Venture over to the vibrant town of Bradford-on-Avon which boasts a lively choice of shopping facilities, gastro pubs, trendy restaurants, and charming footpaths for walking and cycling, as well as romantic trolls along the River Avon.

Within easy reach of Rode Farm is the city of Bath, the largest city in Somerset, home to a historic Roman bathhouse, as well as the Georgian playhouse of the Theatre Royal.

Travel further afield to Longleat and experience a thrilling drive-thru wild animal park, where big cats prowl the estate, or lose yourself at the Hedge Maze, boasting two miles of paths to choose from.

Other attractions worth a visit include Cheddar Gorge, Avebury, Stonehenge, the renowned festival town of Glastonbury, Lacock, Bristol city centre, and the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty further afield.

Choose Rode Farm for a romantic escape to the Somerset countryside.

About the location


Bradford-on-Avon 4 miles; Frome 5; Trowbridge 5; Bath 10 miles.

The attractive village of Rode sits on the Somerset side of the Wiltshire/Somerset border, and was once well known for its connections with brewing and the woollen industry, with several mills still dotted alongside the River Frome. In the 19th century, the village was the scene of an infamous murder, which inspired the book and TV film of The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher. Today it offers a tranquil, quintessential village setting with two pubs, a useful Post Office and store, and lovely walks into the surrounding countryside, along the nearby Macmillan Way. An easy drive takes you to the delightful, historic town of Bradford-on-Avon, from where you can take boat trips along the Kennet and Avon Canal, or explore the beautiful, cosmopolitan city of Bath. A little further afield, a trip to Wells Cathedral, mystical Glastonbury or the ethereal caves at Cheddar and Wookey Hole will not disappoint. Rode offers visitors a convenient and charming holiday base, at any time of year.
