Cottage
Cosy, comfortable cottages in the heart of Wiltshire. Well situated to visit not only Wiltshire but parts of Somerset, Gloucestershire & Bristol. Each Byre is slightly different but they all sleep 4 people. Recently modernised former cowsheds! Byre 1 has dishwasher and washing machine. There is one double bedroom but the small lounge becomes a double bedroom using a comfortable sofa bed . The bedroom has a large wardrobe and chest of drawers. The lounge and the living room have televisions and there is wifi access. The kitchen is well equipped and has a good sized dining area. In the bathroom there is a large shower and airing cupboard. The price for one night is £90 but this drops to £80 per night for two or more nights.

As always enjoyed our weekend break in this lovely well equipped holiday cottage. Bob and Bridget were very welcoming and we had a relaxing stay. We enjoyed a good meal in the local pub and the homemade cake was delicious! We look forward to returning!

Lovely well equipped cottage. So quiet in countryside .welcomed by the owner who had made a sponge cake that was excellent. The pub down the road serves excellent food only 600 yards away. So relaxing place to stay.

Thankyou so much for a peaceful stay in a stunning location. The accommodation was spacious , homely and welcoming , with an amazing homemade cake there on our arrival. Thankyou for the kind surprise upgrade so that me and my elderly mum could have a room each. We would definitely stay here again, it was the perfect base to explore Bath, quaint villages and historic towns. Thankyou Bridgette

Like home from home. Took my 88 year old mum for a mini break. Stayed in Byres 3. Roomy with two beds and all mod cons. Lovely flowers, homemade cake and biscuits which was a nice touch. Went to Lacock village and was able to easily drive to Bath and Bristol. Would stay again with friends or kids and grandkids. Super hosts.

Just spent two days in number 1 Byre. Lovely accomadation very nicely laid out. Owners couldn't be more helpful, our daughter had packed us a beautiful picnic & it was only when we arrived we realized it was B B Q food! Nothing was too much trouble & We had the BBQ in the grounds with a lovely view of the Hills in the distance. We slept very well and enjoyed our two days. Make sure you visit Castle Combe & Lacock two beautiful villages that are close by.

A lovely converted barn, ideally located for so many attractions in the Wiltshire countryside.Bridget and Bob, the owners could not have been more helpful, considering my car broke down on the first day of our stay! Bridgets home baked biscuits certainly helped. An absolutely lovely couple for whom nothing is too much trouble. No.3 'The Byres', a lovely 2 bedroom converted barn, very clean with spacious open plan kitchen and living area, although we were out and about most of the time enjoying the area. Fantastic views overlooking the countryside whilst sitting outside the property enjoying a cuppa! A great location for a place to stay for a break away, to explore so much within 15 mile radius or further; including Corsham where 'Poldark' is filmed (15 minutes drive). Lacock, where scenes from 'Harry Potter' where filmed (10 min drive or a lovely 30 minute walk cross country direct from the property!) Bob told us of the Kennet and Avon Canal series of Locks only 10 minutes away from the property. A lovely walk along the canal whilst viewing a magnificent feat of Victorian engineering. Melksham just down the round is ideal for food shopping during your stay with plenty of supermarkets!! A great area to visit, a wonderful property to stay in. Have no problem in recommending this to friends and family.

About the neighbourhood
There are lots of film sites nearby where Harry Potter , Pride and Prejudice, Poldark , Downton Abbey and many others have been filmed. The National Trust village of Lacock is close where the first photograph was taken from the Abbey. The village has several good pubs and a small variety of shops. Avebury is an excellent place to visit the huge stone circle with Silbury Hill and Kennet Long Barrow nearby too. En route you would pass Cherhill White horse which involves a bracing walk onto the Chalk Downs. This is one of eight White Horses cut into the Wiltshire Chalk downs.
Getting around
A car is vital to access all local tourist sites and all towns and villages. A walk to Bromham is feasible as long as you bring stout footwear. There you will find a village store,a butcher’s and an excellent village pub serving good food and drink.
