    Mrs Sayers ‐ 1 Jun 2021
    " Pet friendly…. it was not ….there was no garden for my dog to use ..out the front was a tiny grass area that is owned by next door… but had to be on a lead as next to busy road which was not mentioned in details and the fact cottage was on a steep hill… the cottage was not very clean on our packing up day …which we left a day early…..my husband dropped something down back of ottoman when he moved it he found a ladies sanitary pad and a top of a bottle… obviously property was not cleaned well after last visitors….. sorry to say will not be returning …..also it was stated parking was five minutes away… it was more than that…. It was a shame as Bradford on Avon was a nice little town…. "

    "The facilities are a bit merge. Two tiny towels each isn't what I'd expect when I wash my hair that needs a towel and also another towel to dry off with. Also, one tea towel feels a bit stingy :) We brought fresh bread which we threw a tea towel over meaning that we don't have tea towel and there wasn't any pepper. Just tiny things like this are a tiny bit annoying :) But over all the cottage is gorgeous, clean and cute."

    " Stylish bathroom and kitchen. (If you are looking at previous reviews there is now a microwave in the kitchen.) I stayed in winter so much appreciated the newly-installed electric mock-woodburner which supplements the single radiator and really belts out the heat - the sofa and armchair are very comfortable so I was nice and snug. Oddly, at time of writing, no breakfast bar nor table and (two) chairs at which to eat or work indoors comfortably. Good location - less than ten minutes walk downhill into town. Busy road but very quiet at night. I would enjoy staying here again. P.S. Looking at previous reviews and at the visitors' book in Holly Cottage I was very pleased and pleasantly surprised to see that the owners and caretakers are very receptive to comments (eg, regarding microwave, stair rail, heating).

    "We turned the heating on when we arrived in the evening, the thermostat stated it was 18.0 deg C, it took about 4 hours to reach 20.0 deg C. Each day we'd go out and come back in the evening and have to wait about 4 hours for the property to heat up again."

    " “The cottage is within walking distance of the town centre, canal/river paths as well as the Tithe Barn, although some of the town is quite steep it is not far. Cheddar Gorge, Avebury, Bath, Wells & Lacock Village/Abbey are all within easy driving distance to name but a few.” "

We had to leave early due to unforeseen circumstances and the owners were very accommodating when we rang to inform them of this. Bradford-on-Avon is an interesting town with lovely walks and a large variety of places to eat and drink. Loved the canal and tithe barns! Would highly recommend for a relaxing break. "

    "It was very clean and most of the facilities appeared new. We were aware that there was no parking at the cottage and on most evenings we were able to find parking within a couple of minutes walk. There were downsides to the cottage however. Firstly the remote for the central heating control did not communicate with the boiler and so we had to manually overide the thermostat in order to get the heating on.

The lighting in the lounge and bedroom was very poor, with no ceiling rose in either room, light was restricted to two wall lights and table lamps. The console table in the kitchen on which the crockery was stored was intended to be, we believe, a breakfast/dining table. There was no leg room under the table. In order to sit at the table to eat we had to put a leg either side of the corner in order to get close.The TV had only basic Freeview channels, we would have appreciated a DVD player to extend the entertainment in the cottage.

    " “Bradford on Avon was lovely, if hilly. Lots to do and see in the vicinity. We were pleased to hear there was plans to install a handrail on the staircase in the very near future. For the sake of the fabric of the building we would suggest that window stays are fitted on the front windows as they bang if there is any breeze at all and that the small area of damp downstairs is addressed sooner rather than later. We would happily recommend the cottage to others and would have no problem returning in the future.” "

It was four days before we got a decent flow of water out of the taps , and having a shower was a nightmare. The staircase beggered belief with no hand rail and both my wife and I being OAP,s and nowhere to take the dog for a decent walk. ..."
