Great Ashley Farm is in a fantastic location - We have the Saxon town of Bradford-on-Avon less than 2 miles away with the Kennet and Avon canal running through it, its Tithe Barn, Saxon Church, lovely quaint shops, cobbled streets and great places to eat! The wonderful city of Bath is a twenty minute drive alternatively you can cycle along the canal or leave the car behind and jump on the train or bus.
We have endless National Trust Properties, Great Chalfield Manor, The Courts at Holt and Lacock Abbey (famed for the filming of Pride and Prejudice) and Westwood Manor are all within a 20 minute drive. We are very fortunate to be on the edge of The Cotswolds with it beautiful rolling countryside equally so in the opposite direction is Salisbury, Longleat, Glastonbury, Street (famed for Clarks Shoes) and Wells with it's magnificent Cathedral.
Visit Caen Hill locks at Devizes with it's straight line of 16 locks and look out for the drays delivering the Wadsworth beer around the town and then onwards to Avebury or Marlborough and into the next county of Berkshire via Savernake Forest visiting the lovely town of Hungerford.
If you like to walk or cycle the Kennet and Avon Canal is truly beautiful heading either towards Bath or Devizes not forgetting to visit Avoncliffe with it aqueduct or Dundas. Bike hire is available in Bradford-on-Avon and whilst you're there visit the Lock Inn Cottage and experience The Boatman's Breakfast!!
With all this in mind we are sure that you will not be disappointed if you stay at Great Ashley Farm Cottage just maybe in need of a bit of a rest at the end of your stay! Alternatively put your feet up with a good book and watch the world go by
