Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Wiltshire - Brewery Cottage

1 bedroom cottage ideal for walking,cycling holiday and sightseeing

Brewery Cottage has been recently renovated and provides all modern convenience and central heating and wifi yet retains its period charm..

Entering from the street you will find the cozy sitting room with open fire [ available from 30th sept -24th march ] There is also an electric stove

Here you will find a TV, video and CD player. There is ample seating.

The kitchen leads off this room and here you will find full halogen hob cooker and oven dishwasher microwave and all modern conveniences.

A door form here leads into the charming courtyard garden with table and chairs. Here you will also find ample storage for bikes as the cottage has a side entrance into the back garden, ideal by for wet dogs which are always welcome

Whatever you enjoy, whether it's walking, visiting ancient monuments and museums or shopping, you should find something to do free here to help your budget.

You could for example spend a morning wandering round the village, of Lacock visiting the quaint bakery and several other shops and there are several pubs and tea shops if you get hungry. If you want to explore the countryside round the village you can take a fairly short easy walk from our information folder.

The Kennet and Avon Canal runs right across Wiltshire from Bath to Devizes, and is within easy walking distance of Brewery Cottage . A walk along the towpath is an enjoyable way to spend a day and it won't cost you anything unless you get tempted by the tea shops along the way!

The towpath is also an excellent cycle path and it provides 56 miles of flat cycling through lovely countryside, perfect for an gentle day out. Bicycles can be hired in various locations along the canal.

Brewery Cottage was used by the brewery workers who worked in a brewery which used to stand opposite the cottage.

In the late 18th century Figgins and Gent Brewery was in Bridewell Street. By 1819 the Bridewell Street brewery had come into the hands of James and Joseph Dredge, represented in 1844 by Joseph Dredge and Co. The only brewery left in Devizes today is the famous Wadworth's who make an equally famous beer 6X which is still delivered around the town by dray horse. They have a visitor's center and tours of the Victorian brewery are well worth taking.

There is a iPod charging point in the bedroom with the radio alarm clock .

The is a lovely property it is like being in someones home, not like a rental property.

We stayed because out own house was having new kitchen fitted and Brewery Cottage fitted the bill perfectly. The cottage is very clean and bed linen and towels first class. Shower in bathroom great. Thank you so much for a very pleasant stay.

Adequate budget lodging

  • 3 of 5

I'm a frequent traveller and reviewer as well as a vacation home owner. Every once in a while, I visit a highly rated place that makes me scratch my head and ask, "What's up?" I could not in good conscience give the Brewery Cottage more than three stars. This is a tiny row-house on a busy street. It's cute, in a way, and within walking distance of central Devizes, as advertised, and dog friendly, which is a big plus. But several of the dishes had old, dried food on them and the sheets were stained and pilled. We had problems with the wifi (the network was off and had a different name than the owner said), and the owner at first just insisted we were wrong and said the previous guests hadn't had any trouble. If we're in the area again, we'll look for something quieter, cleaner and in a nicer location. But if you're looking for a deal above all, I could recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Brewery Cottage as stated is a small Victoria cottage perfect for 2 people with a small child or a dog .The bed linen is new each year so I can only imagine the cleaner got the wrong sheets It is certainly larger and better value with all facilities than a local hotel would be and I'm not sure what happened to the cleaner on the occasion for the cottage to be discribed as not clean I'm sure the dishwasher does occasionally not properly clean the dishes most renters would check this but obviously not this time in fact the cleaners spent 5 hours cleaning after renters left and had to replace toilet seat and dispose of a badly stained towel . The previous renters had switched off the wifi on the router the manager didn't notice this and I was cofused why the network wasn't showing on the customers devices once this was established the password in the information book worked perfectly . Devizes is a small market town and the road is a side road so does have some traffic but I don't think it can be decribed as busy.

gelungener Urlaub

  • 4 of 5

Vielen Dank für eine wirklich schöne und gemütliche Urlaubsunterkunft. Wir hatten ein kleines Haus für uns Drei ganz allein. Neben dem sehr bequemen Doppelbett steht ein Kinderbett zur Verfügung. Selbst mein Sohn mit 1,72 konnte dort gut schlafen. In der Küche ist ein kleiner Tisch mit 2 Stühlen. Beim Essen muss man etwas improvisieren, wenn man zu Dritt ist. Ansonsten ist die Ferienunterkunft sehr gut ausgestattet. Der kleine Garten hinter dem Haus macht die Sache rund.

Die Konversation mit der Vermieterin im Vorfeld war vorbildlich.

Brewery Cottage review

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage was exactly as described. It was clean, well maintained and equipped with everything we needed for comfort and ease. The bed was very comfortable. The location was great. We were able to walk everywhere to get groceries, shop and eat out. A big bonus was having free parking available nearby. One thing to note that the single bed is a little child's bed. Our 18 year old daughter was a bit too long, but managed nicely. The region has so many things to see and do. It was a very easy car trip to Bath. We even made it as far as Portsmouth one day. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review The bed is advertised as child's bed but is only a couple of inches short of a full size bed so can and does fit a teenager or small adult but pleased it suited your 18 year old!

Rather nice cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely little place and you should be very comfortable in this nice cottage. The location is good and it has everything you need for a short break. The cottage is exactly as described. Provided you follow the simple instructions given, the check-in and out procedure is straightforward. The addition of the car parking space next door at the Conservative Club was a nice bonus. The wi-fi worked well (very important). Highly recommended.

Brewery Cottage once the home of workers from the local brewery is in Wiltshires. The market town of Devizes . There is an excellent heritage museum in the town. The location is ideal for the Bath Christmas Market with the excellent bus links directly into Bath [avoid the parking ].

Devizes is close to many famous sights including Bath,Stonehenge, Lacock [the location for many period dramas including Cranford] and Salisbury voted best preserved town in UK.It is also situated on the Kennet and Avon canal and the amazing flight of locks at Caen Hill.

Recently the film War Horse was also filmed in the area in the beautiful Cotswold village of Castle Combe.

The area has many walking and cycling opportunities and there are ancient ruins like the stone circles at Avebury and numerous White Horses to explore, dogs are welcome to stay as well.

The town has all facilities for shopping and eating within a short walk of the house .

The very good local bus and proximity to good rail links mean a car is not always essential for a holiday or short break here and the main line to London is about 20 minutes away at Chippenham [London Paddington can be reached in 1 hour 20 min]
