Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire, England
This gem of a cottage sits on a quiet road, overlooking the Kennet and Avon canal, yet is within easy walking distance of the pretty town centre of Bradford on Avon. There are many lovely walks or cycle paths from your doorstep. Take a boat trip along the canal or just wander through the old town and visit the interesting local shops. There is also a large park close by with tennis courts and childrens play areas. We have retained many original features in the property, including fireplaces, wooden panelling and quarry tiled kitchen, but the cottage has a modern feel. There is also free Wifi.

Comfortable home and central to town and all facilities - Cafes, Train Station, Canal and Sainsbury super market. Interesting watching narrow boats on canal just 50 metres from Lock View Cottage. Always something to watch. Train travel to Bath under 15 minutes, Cardiff 90 minutes. Small courtyard with garden furniture, washing line and BBQ. Private parking on site.

We spent a long weekend with our two children here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This lovely cottage made us feel at home immediately and is very well equipped and lovingly restored. While it has its own parking space the car wasn't needed at all, as everything is within a few minutes' walk and the town offers so much to do....
