Country House, In the Town / Bed & Breakfast
10 Guests
5 Bedrooms

Casually elegant, with amazing views of the town

Originally a terrace of six 17th Century weaver’s cottages, it was converted in 1985 into a fabulous home from home with panoramic views over the town towards Salisbury Plain. This spacious bed and breakfast was purchased from the world record-breaking aviatrix and motor racer, The Hon Mrs Victor Bruce – the first lady to win the Monte Carlo Rally Coupe Des Dames in 1928 and the first Englishwoman to fly solo around the world. Fascinating memorabilia relating to her exploits are displayed in the house.

Each of the five suites is individually furnished with period furniture carefully combined with tasteful décor giving each an individual character. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom, with all the comforts you can expect from a Wolsey Lodge. Perfect for large groups of guests as well as for house parties.

Old leather sofas nestle in the library, perfect for guests to relax in with a pre-dinner drink, to meet fellow guests or enjoy the various books and games. The dining room, with crackling log fire on chilly evenings, has a door onto the en-suite terraced garden, filled with fragrant roses, clematis and passion flowers clambering over wonderful old Cotswold stone walls.
