We loved staying here...what a find!We have family in Bradford In Avon and visit this wonderful village as much as we can...we travel from New Zealand so finding Lock Quay cottage and the homely feeling it offers so far from home absolutely wonderful!The owners put a lot of effort into making the cottage a great place to stay, there is a basket of essientials waiting on arrival bread milk, jam, cereal etc which is great as you don't have to rush to the supermarket. Great location too, loved watching and at times helping the canal boat owners as they passed throught he Lock.Well stocked kitchen, all the utensils, pots,plates etc you need.Thankyou so much...we will be back!!

“Excellent bank holiday weekend for my sisters hen”
Reviewed 27 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

people found this review helpful

We stayed at Lock Quay Cottage for the may bank holiday. The place looked even more amazing than the photos! It really is the perfect cottage. On arrival the owners had left us a welcome basket of fresh bread milk jam and cake. such a lovely touch. the place has a really big kitchen with dining table which was perfect for our large group to eat together. The living room has a fire place with large sofa. Really cosy! The cottage is on 3 floors, each opening up to a large space, so much bigger than we expected! We went to the Bath Thermaspa on the Saturday which was a short drive away from the cottage. Perfect. The weekend was fab and I would definitely go back to stay in the cottage!

“Brilliant cottage”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed in a large group with 7 others at this cottage for a weekend. The cottage is fantastic and comes with all mod cons including wifi and Sky sports 1-4! Bedrooms are spacious and there is a choice of doubles and singles as well as a sofa bed. Location is brilliant, right by the canal and close to a number of pubs and local shops. Overall, an excellent place to stay and very good value for money.

Lovely cottage in a great spot on the edge of Bradford-on-Avon. Well appointed and nicely furnished. We had a great Xmas/New Year family reunion. Well looked after by owners before and during stay. Highly recommended.
