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.

Things to see and do nearby

Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire

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.

    Cottage really quirky

    The cottage was perfect for what I wanted, less isolated than some, but a beautiful location. Having the space to share a holiday with family and friends, and particularly celebrating my birthday in such a lovely place. The cottage was really quirky, one guest said it was like a tardis, it felt like an adventure. I'm not sure why oven gloves aren't provided, but it would have been better if they had. There was free admission to the property for people staying in the cottage, but We were not given anything to show. The stewards at the property refunded the paid admission when they realised, but some evidence should be provided.
