3 bedrooms and 2 well-appointed bathrooms
Only 20 mins from Bath this stylish, 18th century cottage has been furnished beautifully. The interior is abundant with subtle colours combined with exquisite, upholstered furniture. No luxury or attention to detail has been over-looked. The cottage sleeps 6 comfortably, in 3 double bedrooms. There are two bathrooms. The cottage is down a very quiet pedestrian walkway adjacent to the well-known National Trust “The Courts” gardens, built originally as one of the workers cottages for The Courts.
Recently restored, it is a quintessential English cottage with a Shaker style handmade kitchen, which has its very own well, covered over with glass in the floor of the kitchen. There is a small utility area which takes you to the back door with a sink. Just off the kitchen is a wet room (shower and WC). The living space benefits from roof Velux windows, so is very light and airy. Throughout the house there are wonderful splashes of colours and array of fabulous artwork for you to enjoy. The open planned living space is home to a cosy log burner in the centre. There is a TV in this space too. The generous dining room offers seating for up to 8 people around a large wooden table. There is an additional comfy snug, which is bathed in sunshine in the mornings and ideal for some private time.
The first floor has three bedrooms, 1 king overlooking the garden and 2 doubles overlooking the National Trust Courts gardens, a large family bathroom and a landing with a plentiful supply of books that you are welcome to read.
Holt is a lovely, historic village, home to two excellent pubs both serving locally sourced, fresh food daily. There is a handy village shop, moments from the house and wonderful ‘The Courts’ gardens are on the doorstep with stunning gardens and café, an example of an early 20th century garden together with arboretum, working kitchen garden, formal garden and orchard. Within a 15-minute walk is also the fabulous Great Chalfield Manor, often used for TV and film productions, including “Wolf Hall” and “Poldark”. This is a wonderful area for walking too, just across the road from the back garden – walk towards the Glove Factory and continue past and along the fields towards Great Chalfield. The famous village of Lackham is within easy driving distance, where many episodes of Harry Potter were filmed. Lacock Abbey and the beautiful gardens are a must. We recommend the local ‘Glove Factory’ for yummy lunches and delicious cakes. It also has a fabulous garden and next door a park for children. The Glove Factory also can arrange food for events and offers space (and food) for larger groups.
There is a good bus service from Holt to Bradford on Avon, Bath and south to Chippenham.
