I needed AA route planner (recommended) to find it, but once there I was overwhelmed by the warmth and friendliness of the proprietor, Julie-ann. Easy to spot, once you get there by the beautifully restored 1930s phone box by the front door, it was one of the best budget B & Bs that I have stayed in. The room and shared bathroom were spotless, the bed was very comfortable.and the breakfasts were excellent, with a great choice on the menu, including vegetarian options for those so inclined. Not me though. I recommend to excellent bacon served on an ENGLISH muffin with those special home produced organic eggs and fresh tomatoes.
If ever I am in Chippenham again, my first thought will be to call Julie-Ann at the Red Box.
