The Coach House Chippenham holiday cottage
The Coach House is set within the grounds of the owner's home in the glorious Wiltshire countryside with stunning views to the Marlborough Downs. You can lie in bed and watch the sun - and at times even the moon - rise up behind the rolling hills. The rural location is within striking distance of the Georgian City of Bath, The National Trust village of Lacock, renowned for its historic houses, wonderful pubs and of course as the location for Harry Potter, Cranford and Pride and Prejudice.

Almost adjacent is the Bowood Estate with its Championship Golf Course, excellent Hotel and Restaurant plus the most fantastic children's adventure playground. Nearby towns include Bradford-upon-Avon, Devizes, famous for the Caen Hill flight of canal locks and Wadworth Brewery with its iconic 6X Beer, and Avebury's world famous stone circle.

Just a 40 minute drive from The Coach House is Longleat Safari Park and House. This stately home is the seat of the Marquesses of Bath. The Elizabethan House is set in over 900 acres of parkland, landscaped by Capability Brown and there is an additional 8,000 acres of woods and farmland and don’t forget the outstanding safari park with everything from zebras to rhinos. A real must if you are in the area.

After a busy day you can return to the peace and quiet of the detached Coach House and enjoy some time by the pool or perhaps action on the tennis court!
