This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

This attractive terraced cottage is in the heart of the picturesque village of Lacock. The village is a popular location for film and television and the cottage was used by the stars of the popular costume drama "Cranford" to relax in between takes. The cottage is full of character: many rooms display the fifteenth-century timber-cruck frame, and there are interesting additions from later centuries, including a recent refurbishment. Lacock is close to Bath and the Wiltshire downs.

The cottage's layout

Ground floor
entrance hall, sitting room with multi-fuel stove and original stone flag tiles, dining room, kitchen, utility, one single bedroom and shower room.
First floor
Three bedrooms (1 double with 5' bed and en-suite with roll-top bath, 1 twin, 1 single) and landing with reading area.

No two days are the same across these three beautiful counties; from Wiltshire’s dreamy downland and the stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, Dorset’s coastal beauty and bucolic charms, and the wilds of Exmoor and Quantocks in Somerset – their wide open spaces and historical sites draws people back again and again.

Many thousands of visitors drive across the rolling downlands of south and west Wiltshire passing Stonehenge on one of the main routes to holiday destinations in Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. Those who do break their journey with a visit to the stone circle at Avebury, one of the most important megalithic monuments in Europe, or to glorious Stourhead, are captivated by the rolling countryside of this part of the ancient kingdom of Wessex. In the heart of rural Wiltshire is the historic village of Lacock, with its Abbey and High Street, now famous as the location for TV and film dramas, including Lark Rise to Candleford. National Trust Cottages give you an opportunity to stay within the stone circle itself at Avebury, or in Lacock's High Street.

    Made special by:

    The village is very unique and a lovely setting. Great short walks and easy access to the highway to get to Bath and other outlying areas. Although in still feels like you are in a remote village perhaps in a bygone era! Cottages are always appointed so well and we really appreciate the kitchens. You could cook anything there!

    Beautiful cottage, clean and lovely and warm. Wonderful weekend. The beauty of the village and the abbey. It was amazing staying in such an old cottage, there was a real sense of history about the place, it was lovely just being in the cottage rather than using it purely as a base.

    Welcoming cottage

    We were delighted to find a welcome basket of goodies, flowers in three of the rooms and a welcoming card from the staff. We all found the cottage welcoming, warm and what we wanted by way of a family holiday.

    Experience traditional England

    The cottage was beautifully presented and included lovely welcome gifts. We were very happy with the care and attention that had obviously been provided both to the property itself and to make us feel at home. This is a perfect place to go back in time and experience a real sense of traditional England but with all the "mod cons".

    Made special due to:

    The age of the property. It was lovely to stay in a cottage with such history and period features. The cottage was made to feel very welcoming and we would recommend this cottage totally.

    Lovely weekend

    We had a lovely weekend here in October. Lacock is amazing, like stepping back in time, the cottage was lovely and would be fabulous in the summer sitting outdoors but a bit too cold in October. We did however have a real fire and a pub next door which did tasty food. We are planning a return visit with our parents in the spring.

    This beautiful cottage was the perfect place for our weekend away. Well done to the cottages team for the work they have done in preparing this for holiday makers. The cottage looks compact and bijou, but is like a tardis with lots of rooms. The kitchen/utility is superbly appointed for keen cooks. The sitting room is very comfortable with a lovely woodburner, and there's a good shower room. The bedrooms are large and beds very comfy. All perfect for friends or families. From the front door you step into the main street of the lovely village with intriguing small shops, fascinating places of historic interest and cosy tea rooms, the Fox Talbot Museum, the Pottery, local craft fairs and the opportunity to sample local food. Dinner at the Red Lion was so good that we went back for Sunday lunch.
