We enjoyed our week at this lovely cottage, great location, visited Bradford on Avon, Bath, Stonehenge and Lacock Village. People are really friendly in the village and in the club next door. Would definitely recommend.
South Wraxall is a small quiet village with a fine Pub and within easy reach of Bradford-on-Avon and Bath, good for exploring the countryside as well as a city like Bristol by car or by train. The charming cottage is spacious, comfortable and exellently equipped. We also liked the wonderful, well kept garden. The owner was very obliging and we experienced a kind, extensive care by the local Manager.
A lovely cottage with lots of charm and character - with a fantastic shower and comfy beds!
We had a great weekend as a family of 4 with our dog and loved the Long Arms in the village and super walks right from the door.
What a treat to be calling Brook Cottage our 'home' for four months. The cottage is a postcard English period cottage, with a very nice modern bathroom & kitchen though. And a comfortable bed. Even though it is not huge, it was even spacious enough for us with two little boys for all this time. Having the outside space as well helps for that too on nice days. The tree turned out to be perfect for climbing ;-)
The social club next door was a bit of a bonus for us, we were welcomed over straight away (renters of the cottage are regarded as members) and met so many lovely people! Just nice to have a little bit of a buzz every now and again (only open 3 days a week), when it is all so quiet otherwise.
While our boys (7 & 10) went to school up the hill in Monkton Farleigh, my husband and I partly worked from the cottage or one of many bars/pubs around. While the rest of our time here we went for many beautiful walks in the area, either straight from the cottage or after a short drive (our favorites: up to Monkton Farleigh via 'the avenue', or a circular walk by Box & by Castle Combe). It is a perfect start for several runs as well, both on the lanes and trails through the fields, just like for bikerides.
Bradford-on-Avon is a 50 minute (and beautiful!!) walk down from here, Bath is even within biking distance if you fancy it (do, if you can!).
All in all, it was a perfect base for our adventure. Also because it is near where some of our family live (Frome & Bristol).
Thank again to Bob, Lindsey & to Hannah for making us feel so welcome & taken care of! We will be back, even if it can't be for this long again.
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Brook cottage. It is a cozy and very comfortably furnished little house where you feel at home immediately. And the setting is really beautiful. We really love England and this experience proves once again why we love it so much.
Thank you Bob, Lindsay and Hannah!
