We found this B & B purely by chance via the internet and are very pleased we did so. It's perfectly located, right in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside, down a bumpy and tucked out of the way narrow lane about 2 miles up the hill from Bradford on Avon. We stayed in the double room for 2 nights, leaving this morning. Suzanne is just a delight. Everything is very laid back and relaxed at Herb Cottage. The bed was comfortable, the room had a lovely view via the balcony doors of the rabbits and birds in the field and Suzanne's hospitality is just perfect. Her breakfasts were delicious, especially the home made compote and the coffee! We will most definitely return when next in the area. A decently priced, homely B & B without the frills of a hotel, but with the personal touch provided by a lovely hostess. We recommend The Plough (less than 10 mins walk from the cottage) for a good lunch or evening meal.
