Victorian Old Coach House With Stunning Views To The Marlborough Downs.

Family-friendly holiday home in Chippenham with fitness centre
The Coach House is a unique detached former coaching house and set within the grounds of our home at The Old Vicarage. Surrounded by open fields and woodland, with fabulous views to the Marlborough Downs, perfect for long walks and total relaxation. The huge living space (30ft x 16ft), with kitchen area at one end, wood burning stove at the other; comfy sofas and chairs to relax in, table and chairs for dining. An enormous glass window replaces the original entrance allowing the sun to flood the room with light and enhance the view of the original cobbled court yard. Downstairs there is also a study room with single French day bed; separate loo & stone sink. The huge Master bedroom with Superking size double bed, en-suite bathroom and French windows opening onto balcony. Large twin bedroom with en-suite shower/wet room also with balcony. Lie in bed, watch the sunrise and in the evening, the moon appear over the beautiful Wiltshire countryside.
The property is ideally situated near the Georgian City of Bath with all it's stunning architecture, history, wonderful shops and restaurants including the famous Polly Lunn Tea Rooms, one of the oldest buildings in Bath. The National Trust Village of Lacock is a ten minute drive where you can visit the Fox Talbot Photography Museum and the Abbey where scenes from Harry Potter were filmed. Lacock was also the location for films including Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and the ever popular television series Downton Abbey to name but a few. The George Inn dates back to 1361 and has a wonderful open log fire as does the Red Lion. The ancient English Heritage Sites of Stonehenge and Avebury are within striking distance and not to be missed. Our local market town of Devizes is home to the Caen Hill flight of canal locks, the longest in the country as well as a beautiful market square which hosts a weekly market and monthly Farmers Market as well as some unique pubs and shops.
Bowood House, set in gardens designed by Capability Brown, with its' International Golf Course and renowned children's Adventure play ground is only a few minutes drive and the medieval Great Chalfield Manor and gardens another delight.

A wonderful place - highly recommended
We’ve just had a wonderful long weekend at the Coach House for our mini moon. The house is gorgeous, the grounds very well kept, our dogs were welcome and our hosts were so helpful and friendly. We even got to use their pool which was a real treat. Thank you so much we will be back soon! The Hillings x

Rediscovering historic England
Lovely house and grounds, tucked away in rural Wiltshire. Enjoy the night sky. Charming owners make sure everything is perfect. Great Indian takeaway or dinner out nearby. Wonderful walks in Avebury, Lacock, Bath and don’t miss the flight of locks in at Caen Hill in Devises.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing family holiday in unbeatable Wiltshire location
Our family of four had a wonderful stay at the Coach House, which is even more lovely (and larger) than the photos make out. We greatly enjoyed the heated pool despite the chilly August temperatures - Mingulay was an attentive lifeguard! We also visited with the sheep and chickens when we weren’t off on trips out to any of the MANY nearby attractions - a perfect location for seeing so much of what Wiltshire has to offer. The house was immaculate and very comfortable with everything we needed. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday - we would love to come back again soon!

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful getaway….
In short, there wasn’t anything that we didn’t like about this place ! Friendly owners, great facilities and comfy beds….what more could you ask for ! The tennis court, games room and outdoor pool were all a huge hit and our dog loved the company of top pool attendant Mingulay (the owners fabulous border collie !) We also enjoyed feeding the pigs everyday and seeing the sheep and hens within the grounds. Thank you Fiona and Matthew, we definitely plan on returning in the future !
