About our home

Our cottage is located in a very private location in the historic town of Malmesbury, with lovely terraced garden and views to the countryside beyond. We are a few minutes walk to the high street with nice pubs, a range of independent shops and supermarkets. We have a car space that guests can use if needed.

Our kitchen is well proportioned and equipped. We have one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and two other rooms that share a bathroom, one is a double and the other a single. We also have another single room in the loft with an en-suite bathroom. Although use this for storage, but can make it available upon request.

We have lovely SE facing sun trap terrace, which is perfect for breakfast, or morning coffee in the summer as well as a larger outside dining area with BBQ. The garden has pear, apple and cherry trees that are abundant with fruit in the late summer and a small herb garden can be used by guests to compliment cooking or in a gin and tonic (mint & rosemary).

More about us

  1. We are a couple in our autumn years - empty nesters, with a desire to travel more.

  2. Anthony teaches Art at an international School in London and I work in the Houses of Commons in Westminster in a senior operational role.

  3. We love the arts, culture and the great outdoors. Our cottage reflects that passion which is filled with a variety of art works and sculptures in the garden. We are also near some of the best walks Britain has to offer.

Neighbourhood

We live in a conservation area of the Cotswolds. Our stone cottage was built originally in 1750. All other houses in the vicinity are of a similar age and character. The area in known for some lovely walks and close to some beautiful National Trust properties and gardens that are well worth visiting. We are also a short drive to the cathedral city of Wells and Georgian architectural wonder - Bath.

Cool bars
The local pub, the King’s Arms often hosts life bands of various stripes -the blues mainly
Cozy cafés
The Old Bell Hotel offers very nice lunches in their courtyard garden, 2 mins walk from our place
