The historical West Country market town of Chippenham lies roughly halfway between the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North Wessex Downs, along the banks of the River Avon. It's characterised by a pretty jumble of honey-coloured limestone houses, which flank narrow streets and market squares. If you're looking for a taste of the South West, a ton of family-friendly attractions and some excellent food that celebrates British produce, you can't do better than nabbing a room in one of the Chippenham bed and breakfasts. Plus, shoppers won't be disappointed by the lively high street, which is packed with boutique and independent stores. Many come to use the village as a base for exploring the nearby parks.
Looking for a West Country break in traditional surroundings that won't break the bank? Want to stay in accommodation that has character and personality? Would you prefer to be just a stone's throw from some of Britain's most spectacular parks? Sounds like the bed and breakfasts in Chippenham are going to be just the ticket – they offer cosy atmospheres and homely surroundings, not to mention hosts who have run their properties for years and mastered the art of hospitality. Some are traditional little terraced houses in the heart of the town. Others are a little more swish, with surrounding gardens and gorgeous interiors, and could give luxury hotels a run for their money. You can even find a few budget options – they may be rare finds, so close to the Cotswolds, but it's still possible. Whatever you're looking for, you can always find your perfect match on Expedia, which lists every property, along with detailed descriptions and photos. All you need to do is search by price, location and budget, scan through the listings and book your favourite in just a few clicks. Arranging your weekend break just got a whole lot easier.
If you've never stayed in a B&B, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the high quality. Many have large guestrooms packed with all the amenities you might find in a hotel, like a kettle for making hot drinks, a flat-screen TV on the wall and complimentary WiFi. Many have ensuite bathrooms with separate shower units and baths, while others have large family-sized bathrooms shared between just a few guestrooms. Looking to bring the kids? You won't have any trouble finding family-sized, or even interconnecting, rooms in Chippenham bed and breakfasts. After a comfortable night's sleep, you can fuel up for the day on a traditional English breakfast, or lighter options, like toast and fruit. If Chippenham doesn't sound right for your break, consider a few nights exploring the multitude of things to do in Bristol, instead.
It's true that many travellers come to stay in Chippenham bed and breakfasts to use them as a base for exploring the nearby parks. If you're looking for an outdoor adventure, they're hard to beat. Of course, there are plenty of things to do in town for those who haven't brought their walking boots. An amble through the centre brings you to the Town Hall and Buttercross. Then there's Chippenham Museum, which houses a permanent collection of historical artefacts from the town's past. If you've brought the kids, you could go walking in John Coles Park or along the banks of the River Avon. In the afternoon, there's an array of high-street and boutique stores, if you fancy a bit of shopping, or you could simply dive into one of the cosy pubs or restaurants for a bite to eat.
