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.

A cozy and relaxing house which we were sorry to leave.

  • 3 of 5

The advert showed a double bed and a single ... and also said that 3 people could be there. But it didn't say that the single bed was only a child's size, so obviously if there was a third person it means a child. I had intended sleeping in the single bed and tried it for one night, but then I had to ask my friend if we could share the double.

The property was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay and were pleased with all the amenities in the kitchen, and the wifi, tv, parking etc. Also we were very grateful for being able to arrive earlier in the day on the first day, and that someone was around to settle us in and help us.

Proximity to supermarket, restaurants, shops is great. Also we hadn't realized that we would be there for the Devizes Town Festival... and that was a bonus.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves in Devizes but apologise for the bed situation ! Normally when 2 adults book it's assumed they will be sharing a bed! I don't ever take a booking from 3 adults explaining to them about the small bed ! I have now made it more clear on the Web page but thank you for the feed back ! Bernie

Lovely quiet cottage

  • 5 of 5

On our visit to the Cotswolds we spent 4 lovely nights at the Brewery Cottage. It is very quiet and great for sleeping. We enjoyed the garden very much. The place was clean, updated and in working order. We would recommend the cottage for a couple visiting the area.

Cosy and homely cottage.

  • 4 of 5

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.

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]
