  • "Roan Cottage provided a very convenient base for exploring the south Cotswolds and beyond into Somerset."

    The accommodation was fairly basic in comparison to our usual bookings but it was very good value being significantly cheaper than our usual options. It was clean, with a useful lawned garden for our dog and comfortable but we found the shower cubicle very small and the cooking facilities fairly basic. Overall, a well-located, comfortable cottage representing very good value.

    We value your feedback and are pleased that you found our property well located, good value and comfortable etc. As your comment regarding the shower may put other guests off from visiting our property we would however like to confirm that the shower is a standard size which suits most people.

    Our son lives nearby and was getting married,we usually stay with him and his girlfriend but needed more space this time! Plenty of space in Roan Cottage for two adults,two teenagers and our dog. Superbly clean and super facilities- I iced and decorating the four tier wedding cake there. After the wedding we had time to visit nearby Avebury and Bristol, plus plenty of dog walking in Lydiard Park ,which is next to the cottage.

About the location


Swindon 6.7 miles; Malmesbury 10.7 miles; Bath 31 miles.

Situated at the southern end of the Cotswold Hills, in rural northern Wiltshire and close to the border with Gloucestershire, the friendly market town of Royal Wootton Bassett can be found. The town was granted Royal patronage in 2011, due to the part it played in the repatriation of military personnel who sadly lost their lives serving their country overseas. It boasts a weekly market and offers a good selection of local shops and inns, providing 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. The coastal resorts of Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea are just over an hour's drive for anyone wanting to dip their toes in the sea. Visit the charming town of Malmesbury and the Cotswold Water Park and with the historic cities of Bath, Oxford and Salisbury all easily accessible, this area really makes an interesting touring centre at any time of the year.
