Brook Cottage, Lower South Wraxall near Bradford on Avon and Bath.
Luxury self catering holiday cottage – sleeps 4.
Brook Cottage is a 17th century Grade 2 listed cottage located in the quiet and attractive village of Lower South Wraxall just 3 miles from Bradford on Avon, 6 miles from Bath and within easy distance of many local attractions. The Longs Arms pub is just a short walk across the fields to the upper village and free range eggs are available at the farm a short walk down the lane. You and your dog are welcome to walk the fields around the village and come back to a hot cup of tea at Brook Cottage.
This luxury holiday cottage is ideally positioned near Bradford on Avon, Bath and the Cotswolds. While providing a complete country experience, it is only a few miles by car from Bradford on Avon which contains many restaurants, pubs, shops and boutiques. Bath is also only a few miles away and it has become one of the most visited cities in England, which besides the famous historic baths also has a new pedestrian mall and excellent restaurants. Also close by is the famous 16th century village of Lacock as well as Avebury and Stonehenge. If you want to enjoy a country experience in a small village while still being close to all of these major attractions, then Brook Cottage is the place for you.
The holiday cottage is decorated and furnished to the highest standards throughout. Originally built as a farmer’s cottage in the 1600’s, Brook Cottage was modernized just last year and it has the latest kitchen appliances, a modern bathroom and the most up to date digital TV and WiFi. Yet it retains many period details. Every room has beams – even the bathroom – and living room features a log stove in the inglenook fireplace and comfortable seating. On a cold winter evening the log stove warms the living areas to a pleasant temperature and the modern heating system takes care of the rest.
Brook Cottage also enjoys its own secluded and peaceful patio and gardens – perfect for alfresco dining during the summer months. So summer or winter we believe that you will find Brook Cottage to be a comfortable retreat from the hustle and bustle of urban life while retaining the amenities of a modern world.
We aim to make your stay in Brook Cottage as comfortable as possible and we extend a warm welcome to you and your dog. Our manager will be available to greet you and ensure that your visit is exactly what you want as we would love for you to return.
