  • "Very spacious and well furnished property in a good location."

    Convenient for walking in Lydiard Park. It was comfortable and warm (once the initial chill was off after the first day). M4 motorway wasn’t a problem at all, however the lane immediately outside the cottage was often very busy! A most pleasant stay - we would return.

    Thank you David for your feedback as it is very important to us. We are sorry to hear that you found our cottage a little chilly on the first day. What a shame you didn’t mention this when we messaged on your first day to check everything was ok for you. We would have guided you through the operating instructions which are also inside our information folder left on the table. We were also sorry to hear that the single track road outside the cottage had been very busy. Unfortunately there had been temporary traffic lights on the main road from Swindon to Royal Wootton Bassett that week and traffic then tends to use the smaller roads to avoid the queues. We are glad you had a pleasant stay overall though and hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back in the future! Kind regards Alison and Simon Property Owner

    An extra lamp in the living room would also have been useful.

    Many thanks for your feedback Gillian, we are pleased that you were comfortable in our property and liked the location. We use seersucker bed linen that is non iron; it can give the impression that it is older than it is but it is relatively new. We are sorry that there was no table lamp. Unfortunately it was recently damaged and we haven’t got round to replacing it yet but will be asap. Thanks once again for your feedback we have taken your comments on board and will address them.

    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.

About the location

ROYAL WOOTTON BASSETT

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.
