Property Description

This pair of garden cottages are set in the grounds of the Jacobean Manor House - Thickwood House, dating back to the 1700’s. During the centuries it grew to become one of the most prosperous farms in the area, and its present owners maintain the stunning gardens and outbuildings in keeping with the house. The cottages were sympathetically converted from a Cotswold stone byre, and retain many traditional features. Cosy and comfortable, and with views over the magnificent garden and orchard, they provide a peaceful, countryside retreat and an excellent holiday base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and picturesque villages. Nearby Castle Combe is said to be the prettiest village in England, also famous for its motor racing circuit. Lacock is another picture postcard village, well loved by film-makers for its historical streets and buildings. Lacock Abbey was used in the Harry Potter films. This AONB enjoys easy access to the Cotswolds, Salisbury Plain and the Marlborough Downs offering stunning scenery for walking and cycling, and the Georgian Spa city of Bath is within half an hour’s drive. Shops and pub 1 mile.

All on ground floor: Living/dining room with beams. Kitchen. 1 double bedroom. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

Both properties: Oil central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. DVD. Electric cooker. Microwave. Laundry service available at cost. Large shared, lawned garden with patio and furniture. Ample parking. No smoking. Friday to Friday. No children under 12 years. NB: Deep water feature in grounds.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We were very pleased with the accommodation, quiet friendly and clean. Sept 2012.
  2. Lovely cottage in a lovely setting. Comfortable and homely. The fact they allowed the dog was why we booked it. Lovely part of the world to visit. We will be going back one day. Sept 2012.
  3. I booked a 5 day break for myself. As I was travelling alone I didn’t want anything I would rattle around in. This was perfect as I felt safe and cosy in the very comfortable accommodation. It would suit a couple too. There are lovely walks and the scenary is stunning. I had a fantastic time. The location and accommodation was perfect for me. July 2012.
  4. Cottage was warm and comfortable, very peaceful and quiet. Owner friendly. Jan 2012.
  5. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and gave us some useful local information. At first, the property was rather chilly, but once the heating had been on for a while it warmed up and was very warm and comfortable, in contrast to the cold, wet December outside. Dec 2011.
  6. A convenient location for touring the area and a quiet haven on return from a day out. Oct 2011.
  7. We found this cottage very comfortable, providing everything we needed for a lovely peaceful holiday. Very tranquil setting overlooking garden and orchard. Ideal for exploring the countryside around, being situated between Bath and Chippenham. We used the local bus to go into Bath on one occasion and the Park and Ride on another, both recommended to avoid driving into Bath. August 2011.
  8. Although generally the property was clean, there was dust and cobwebs in many corners, etc. May 2011.
