Herb Cottage is a perfect bed and breakfast. I stayed a couple of nights as I had some work close by and really looked forward to going back there in the evenings. The room was very comfortable with everything I needed including a spacious en-suite bathroom with a fantastic shower and a table and chair to do some work in the evening. The decor was very tasteful throughout the house with many interesting paintings, photos and sculptures and fresh flower and foliage arrangements dotted around the house. Thanks to Suzanne (the wonderful host) I was able to have breakfast very early, 6.30am which is rare and suited me perfectly. The breakfast was excellent (I didn't have a cooked breakfast but could have if I wanted) with produce from the garden and perfect coffee all served in a light and airy garden room. The local pub was just a couple of minutes walk away with good food, ale and a friendly atmosphere. Suzanne really knows how to run a B&B, she's a lovely lady with an eye for detail and genuine interest in people. If I could have stayed longer I would have, it almost felt like a retreat and I would definitely recommend Herb Cottage to anyone wanting a B&B within a 20 mile radius of Bradford Liegh. Last but not least it's terrific value, I've stayed in a lot of B&B's across the country for my work and have a budget on how much I can spend which isn't a great deal and Herb Cottage easily falls within it. I would go as far to say it's probably in the top 3 B&B's that I've stayed in.

Unfortunately we could not stay the full three nights at Suzanne's property in Bradford Leigh but Suzanne made us feel most welcome for the night we were there and introduced us to some interesting information about the crop circles. We sat with her near her warm fire on the evening we were there and had a lovely chat about all sorts of topics. Her delicious breakfast was a delight. Thank you Suzanne for welcoming us like one of your family. Pat and Paul

Dear Pat and Paul. Thank you so very much for taking the time to write a review on my Mothers Trip Advisor site. As you probably gathered, she is not a great computer user and so it has become my job to respond. Many thanks again and glad you enjoyed your stay. Martin Wise

A winding path through a well kept garden led up to Herb Cottage and a warm welcome from Susanna Wise who invited us into her garden room/conservatory, sat us in comfortable armchairs and served us tea. We felt as though we had arrived at the home of an old friend. This set the scene for a very relaxing four night stay with sumptuous breakfasts offering homemade muesli with fruit compote and Greek yoghurt, locally produced bacon and homemade marmalade for the toast. Susanna was very hospitable and clearly enjoys having guests to stay in her house. We can thoroughly recommend a stay.

Set in a country garden in a peaceful rural location, Herb cottage proved to be a great place to stay. It is just a five minute walk to the Plough Inn where we enjoyed an excellent meal in the evening.
It is about 1 mile from Bradford on Avon and approx 10 miles from Bath. There is easy access to the city by bus or train from Bradford-On -Avon or park and ride at Odd down. The cottage is also fairly close to the scenic villages of Lacock, Castle Combe and Biddestone.
I highly recommend Herb Cottage.

My wife and I stumbled upon this idyllic cottage just outside Bradford on Avon almost by chance. We had stopped at the Plough pub at the end of the road for a drink and asked for a recommendation. What luck! I called Suzanne Wise on my mobile phone and she gave us directions to the house. On arriving we had a delightfully warm welcome and although we intended to stay in the area for one night only we ended up staying two. We will certainly be back to enjoy this tranquil spot again! Thanks very much Suzanne!

Room Tip: Two rooms available in the house.
