About Lantern House

Lantern House offers spacious holiday accommodation for five adults/children plus two babies/toddlers (under 2 years). Situated in the picturesque village of Sherston in Wiltshire within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lantern House is within easy reach of the market towns of Malmesbury and Tetbury (both five miles away) and provides an excellent base for exploring Central England and its many attractions.

The village of Sherston offers a good range of amenities within walking distance of Lantern House including a very good pub for a meal out, grocery store/Post Office for stocking up on provisions (including local produce), two lovely tea shops/ café and an Indian restaurant. For the little ones, there is also a playground, obstacle course and field where they can let off steam.

Nestling on the southern side of the Cotswolds, Sherston village is well placed for exploring the many attractions of the area and is only ninety minutes by car or train to London. The beautiful National Trust village of Lacock is within easy reach and popular with 'setjetters' being used as the filmset for movies such as Pride and Prejudice and Hogwarts in two of the Harry Potter films. For those who like walking in the footsteps of the famous, Castle Coombe is another 'must visit' destination and a picturesque village which was used in the filming of War Horse and Dr Dolittle. Tetbury is a thriving market town with an excellent range of shops, restaurants and pubs. It attracts antique hunters from around the world, is home to Highgrove (the residence of King Charles), and is an architectural treasure with its magnificent market hall and the Elizabethan gem of Chavenage House (used in the filming of Poldark). For garden enthusiasts, Westonbirt National Arboretum is closeby (a short drive through the country lanes from Lantern House) and a must with one of the most impressive collections of trees worldwide (magnificent in the Autumn and Spring).

Slightly further afield but still within easy reach by car is the ancient City of Bath steeped in history (30-minutes away) and Bristol city centre. The honey coloured villages and historic towns of the Cotswolds are also a must to explore peppered with popular places like Stow-on-the-Wold, Bibury, Chipping Campden, Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway and Burford.
