The Wilderness is a fantastic 17th Century holiday home sitting in a peaceful hamlet in Wiltshire within easy reach of the Roman City of Bath (just twenty minutes away). Sleeping sixteen (plus an additional two) in eight bedrooms, this characterful comfortable holiday home is perfect for large groups of friends and family or to celebrate a special occasion (hen parties welcome, unfortunately no stags).
The Wilderness benefits from:
The small village of Heywood is well placed for visiting the areas many attractions including Longleat House and Safari Park (ten minutes away and a great day out for the family), Bath (thirty minutes) with its wonderful Roman Baths, shops and restaurants; the Saxon town of Bradford-on-Avon and the numerous attractions that the South West has to offer!
Stonehenge and Salisbury are forty minutes away and Westbury Railway Station is a mile away with regular direct trains to London (ninety minutes) and Bath (twenty minutes). The M4 and M5 are just thirty to forty minutes away. The local pub serving excellent food and real ales is just a short walk across the fields. There are many great golf courses in the area and discounted green fees have been arranged for guests at many.

Nestling amongst large private gardens, "The Wilderness" dates back to 1640 and was formerly a pair of farm cottages which were believed to be part of Heywood House Estate closeby. The house still features the original oak beams with the ceilings low in many places, adding to the character and charm.
Over the years, the original cottages were carefully extended and now provide exceptionally spacious self-catering accommodation with two double bedrooms, a spacious family room with two single beds plus guest beds underneath and five twins (some converting into doubles by arrangement).
The Wilderness is popular with hen parties, particularly as a range of extra activities can be arranged such as beauty therapies (including massage), outdoor pursuits, in-house catering and a minibus service for a night out in Bath!
The holiday home provides the cosy welcoming atmosphere that is perfect for a reunion of friends who want to spend time together and catch up over a glass or two!
Additional information: The Wilderness is child friendly. No smoking.
