Walks from the barn along the canal and fields. Local pub (3 Magpies) just a few minutes walk away and food excellent. Bus routes to Bath, Devizes minutes walk away. Would recommend and would loveRead more to stay again. Hide

Fantastic welcome pack with every thing we could possibly need - two types of milk, bread, cheese, eggs, jam, soup, baked beans, dog treats, coffee & a lovely bottle of wine! The cottage was in the perfect location for us, with a dog friendly pub 5 minutes walkRead more away & two really nice dog friendly pubs within an hours walk in different directions. We really enjoyed our stay & we will stay here again. Hide

The original barn structure has been strikingly remodelled and now includes a range of integrated equipment such as fridge, washing machine, oven and microwave. Also a wood burning stove.
