This wonderful holiday property lies in the peaceful conservation village of Colerne in Wiltshire. As part of the Cotswolds, we 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. 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 Shippon is a lovely relaxing place to return to after exploring the many attractions in the area. A well-behaved dog is welcome. An additional cost of £20 per dog per stay, paid on arrival. We can arrange wheelchair access via a ramp if needed. The property is all on one level. More
