Under new ownership since June 2020 and newly renovated. This wonderful historic galleried holiday property lies in the peaceful conservation village of Colerne in Wiltshire. As part of the Cotswolds, we are surrounded by stunning rolling countryside, a walkers paradise, yet only 6 miles from Bath. Within easy distance of amazing places such as Castle Combe, Lacock and Biddestone, some of England's most beautiful villages, Dyrham Park, Bradford on Avon and Badminton for the Horse Trials. Beautifully restored, the grade II* listed stable conversion is part of the only longhouse in Wiltshire dating back to the 13th century, it is also the oldest house in the village and of great historical interest. Colerne itself is a real hidden gem, perched on a hill overlooking the Box Valley towards ...Under new ownership since June 2020 and newly renovated.

Colerne itself is a real hidden gem, perched on a hill overlooking the Box Valley towards Bath. The active village has two pubs, a village shop, cafe, hairdresser and florist. There are also bus connections to Bath and the market town of Chippenham, both providing fast train links to London. For days out, Bristol, Westonbirt Arboretum, Longleat Safari and Adventure Park, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Cheddar Gorge, Tetbury and many more, are all within an easy hours drive. The Stables, with superfast WIFI, Smart TV and Smart Speaker, is a lovely relaxing place to return to after exploring the many attractions in the area. We can set up an extra child bed in the main bedroom. A well-behaved dog is welcome. An additional cost of £20 per dog per stay, paid on arrival. More

A very relaxing holiday in an unusual but lovely, homely and dog friendly cottage. The cottage is situated in a very friendly village- ideally located for Bath, Bristol and Chippenham. The cottage owners were very helpful and accommodating. Would recommend it!!
