About Pig Wig Cottage

Pig Wig Cottage comfortably sleeps up to five people in two lovely bedrooms, so it is perfect for couples or families as well as groups of friends. The cottage is on the fringes of Bradford-on-Avon, half-a-mile across a field from The George pub and within walking distance of cafes and shops. It is one of three self-catering cottages in the grounds of Beeches Farmhouse, where the owner also offers B&B accommodation with 5 separate en-suite bedrooms available to rent for groups of up to 30 people. The venue is an excellent choice for extended families and friends celebrating a special occasion or looking to book a holiday around a big event like a wedding.

Bradford-on-Avon is in Wiltshire, just a few miles from the ancient city of Bath and within easy reach of Bristol and the picturesque towns and villages of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bradford is a beautiful and convenient base for exploring the surrounding area but is also a worthy holiday destination in its own right, boasting historic buildings that hark back to the town's crucial role in Britain's woollen and rubber industries. The train station is a favourite stop of railways buffs, as it remains virtually unchanged from when it was built in 1848 as part of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's famous Great Western Railway Line. Bradford-on-Avon is packed full of independent cafes and shops and hosts a regular weekly market every Wednesday in The Lamb Yard.

The Kennet and Avon Canal Path passes through Bradford-on-Avon on its route between Bristol and Reading. It's a gorgeous route for a walk or a bike ride, taking about an hour to cycle to Bath. There are also relaxing walks along the Avon River, and a network of footpaths leading to the hill above the town and panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Alternatively, jump aboard one of the regular busses that go up the slope and save your legs. Boating is an understandably popular pastime, given the cottage's proximity to the canal and the River Avon, and there is a network of footpaths traversing the town and countryside. Golf and horseriding are two more fantastic ways to enjoy the landscape, or you could treat yourself to the unforgettable experience of floating in a hot air balloon with a bird's eye view of Bath's magnificent Royal Crescent.

Longleat Safari Park and Cheddar Gorge and Caves are both within easy reach of Pig Wig Cottage, with the owners able to arrange discounted entry for these two top-rated attractions. Westonbirt Arboretum is about a 45-minute drive from the cottage, and there is a wealth of National Trust properties, including Lacock and Lacock Abbey, all within a small radius, giving plenty of variety for all-weather activities.

Pig Wig Cottage is entirely self-contained and can be booked on its own or together with one or more of the other cottages on site. Please see the owner's website for more information.
