Lovely, comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very attractive and comfortable. Very well equipped. Loved Bradford on Avon. Great place for a mini break. Also visited Bath but also spent time just relaxing in the cottage which was what we really needed. We ate at the the pizza restaurant (Amici) which we loved and the Grapes. The Castle Inn did a good fish and chips. Also went to some great little quirky cafes! Would definitely recommend.

Absolutely charming

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I spent 5 days at Kemble Cottage in Bradford-on-Avon. The cottage was just perfect. Tara was very helpful and responsive and we could not have dreamed of a more lovely home. We actually enjoyed the short walk up the hill after all the scones and clotted cream we devoured at the various coffee and tea rooms in town. A delightful holiday to remember.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful 3 night stay at Kemble Cottage 1-4th December. The cottage is beautifully and tastefully furnished, very cosy and comfortable with everything you need for a relaxed stay. It was like coming home every evening after days out exploring and shopping. Bradford on Avon and Bath are both beautiful, with plenty to do, loads of great places for food and lots of unique shops. One very comfy double bedroom, a lovely single room and a double sofa bed at the cottage. The hill may be a bit of a challenge for those with mobility issues, but we loved it as it made the cream teas less laden with guilt!! Would thoroughly recommend staying at this cottage if you are visiting the area.

Owner's Response: Hi Jo, thank you for your lovely review, its lovely to read wonderful comments on our cottage and the area, we simply love bradford on avon, and are proud to share the cottage with lovely people. You are right the hill is a nice little challenge at the end of the day, as it is for the majority of properties in Bradford on avon due to the fact the town is built in almost what I would describe as a valley. Its a great way to burn off some of those unwanted pounds especially if you stay for a week! :) We hope to see you again in Future! all the best Tara and Richard

Quaint charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, comfortable and warm. It has everything needed for a holiday. Nice location on steep hill, short walk into town and river side. Parking can be a challenge on the road, but did find a space every day.
