This sweet old, double fronted cottage is tucked away down a lane in the village of Wingfield on the Wiltshire/Somerset border. It is close, by road or train, from historic Bath and 5 mins from beautiful Bradford-on-Avon and close to Longleat. We offer a warm welcome to all visitors. It's a quiet retreat from which to explore the local area and ideal for families and couples. It is an escape to the country, whilst being close to many interesting and historic places. Well behaved dogs welcome.
Number 16 Loves Lane was built in the 1800's of Bath stone, by the Love Family. It is one of a row of little cottages with another Airbnb available 2 doors away. (contact me for details)
There is a well equipped kitchen/dining room with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven and induction hob as well as a Nespresso coffee machine, toaster and microwave. The front window looks out onto the pretty front garden, stuffed full of cottage garden plants, the stable door at the back allows you to look out at the back garden. The dining area has the original flagstone floors and the kitchen area has wood flooring. There are lots of cupboards and plenty of work space.
The sitting room has a very comfortable 4 seater sofa and tv/dvd player and wood flooring. We will be putting a log burner shortly so it will be lovely and cosy in the autumn and winter.
The upstairs bathroom has a bath with shower attachment and separate shower cubicle. Towels are supplied.
There is a small snug upstairs, with an armchair and books for quieter moments.
There are 2 double bedrooms; both beds are antique brass and are made up with good quality cotton bedding. Both bedrooms have additional wool rugs for chillier nights. There is a wardrobe in one bedroom and a chest of drawers in the other.
Your comfort and enjoyment are really important to us and so Number 16 is furnished to the standard and style we would want when holidaying. It is a characterful, individual space which is painted throughout in Farrow and Ball and Myland paints.
All linens and towels are included and a travel cot and high chair can be provided if required.
There is parking for 2 cars (tandem parking) to the rear of the cottage and entry to the cottage can be via the back garden or through the front garden. The parking area is a little uneven at the moment, but it's the first job on our list of things to do - and we will be levelling it soon.
The village of Wingfield has a popular pub, The Poplars, which is within walking distance, a school and a church; it is a quiet base from which to explore. There are no shops in the village. An internet shop can be arranged and there is a supermarket a 7 minute drive away.
