We loved this holiday home when we visited it!
The Comedy Cottage is an attractive barn that sits in the grounds of the owners' magnificent home, set in a quiet and private location and ideal for a relaxing break in the countryside or as a base to visit many exceptional locations including Bath.
Guests can enjoy the gardens freely as well as use the tennis court too!
Unique in name and nature, Comedy Cottage (originally for horses and coaches!) is spacious and very light with accommodation for two people (plus more if necessary).
It is set in the southern Cotswolds, with places like Tetbury and Cirencester only 20 mins drive away while Bath in the other direction is about 25 mins drive.
In fact the barn is great spot for a 'town and country' break!
Downstairs is the kitchen/diner, bright, modern and well equipped, while upstairs is the Living Room , leading to the bedroom and ensuite.
(Please note that although the rooms are in the eaves upstairs, both are full height for a 6ft+ person and not in any way cramped or head hitting at all!) Throughout the home the colours are attractive, welcoming and very much in the modern-contemporary style but in keeping with the location.
The owners, who live on-site, have considered everything to make your stay comfortable.
If you're energetic you might like to use the tennis court!
For the lively and determined there are two pubs within walking distance across the fields.
About the location
Chippenham 11 miles; Cirencester 13 miles; Bath 23 miles.
Dating back to the Iron Age and reputedly the oldest borough in England, the pretty market town of Malmesbury is located on a hilltop in the southern Cotswolds. Malmesbury is steeped in history and offers visitors over 400 listed buildings, a 15th century Market Cross, a ruined 7th century Benedictine abbey, an annual carnival and many independent shops, cafes and traditional pubs. Abbey House Gardens, home to 'The Naked Gardeners' can also be found in Malmesbury (Note: The gardeners are clothed during normal opening hours) and the annual Womad Music Festival is close by at Charlton Park. The area offers many country houses, including Rodmarton Manor and Gardens, and Chavenage House, a fine example of a Cotswold manor unchanged for 400 years. Just a short drive away is The Cotswold Water Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering 40 square miles and offering a wide range of activities, including boating, waterskiing, fishing, cycling, golf and horse riding, plus Bath, Cirencester and Tetbury are all within easy reach and well worth a visit.
