Self-catering holiday cottages in Bradford-on-Avon

Bradford on Avon, dating back to the time of the Romans and with several buildings surviving from the 17th Century, is situated on the edge of the Cotswolds in West Wiltshire. Naturally enough, as in the town’s name, the famous River Avon runs through the town centre. It is noted for a wonderful example of a Saxon church, St Laurence’s, founded in 705AD.

The self catering cottage holidaymaker will never want for local fresh produce, as there is a farmers’ market held every Thursday (Westbury Gardens and Library car park) and the last Sunday of every month in Westbury Gardens and Lantern. There are several restaurants and inns (some are riverside and canal-side) to enjoy a welcome meal and there is enough local shopping to satisfy the retail appetite.

Holiday homes offering unparalleled views can be rented for a week or a short break, single storey with ground floor accommodation for elderly couples, or big properties fro large groups with spacious living room and dining rooms fro holiday entertaining - take a look and don't hesitate to ask for assistance if you cannot find whet you are looking for.

The most notable feature in the town is the ancient bridge over the river in the centre of the town that still exhibits two of its original 13th Century arches. From the bridge there are wonderful views of times past, with the original old weavers’ cottages and the 19th century (former) cloth mills. The town simply exudes history –Roman, Saxon, Norman, Georgian and Victorian - wherever you may roam! The river and canal (the later offering boat trips) offer the wanderer a perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with the town, whether by foot or bicycle. There are also various events held during the year. The city of Bath, Longleat Safari Park and Stonehenge are close by as well.
