Large holiday cottage near Bath

The Wilderness is a magnificent house in a quiet Wiltshire hamlet near Bath. It’s bursting with charm and boasts original 17C oak beams and an Inglenook log fireplace. There are  8 bedrooms including a family room so the cottage sleeps up to 18 in comfort. There are 3 separate living rooms, a big kitchen with range cooker and ample crockery and cooking equipment for 18 people. The  dining room has a table to seat 18 together. We love large parties, family groups and hen parties (sorry, no stags). If you need a large holiday cottage near Bath, The Wilderness is perfect!

There’s a huge private garden facing open countryside and within the grounds are a party-sized gas BBQ and picnic benches. A special feature of the garden is the log-fired Finnish sauna house. There’s a farm shop nearby and a great village pub with food. We offer In-house catering, beauty therapy, minibus etc – see Extras

“We had a fantastic weekend at the Wilderness, with a large family group of 3 generations. The house is really lovely, with lots of space for everyone to spend time together, and smaller areas for a little peace and quiet too! It has an amazing garden perfect for keeping young children entertained. Really easy to book and communicate with Jo the owner. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!” Katie July 2016   more TripAdvisor reviews

History of The Wilderness

Set in large private gardens “The Wilderness” dates from 1640 and was originally a pair of farm cottages believed to belong to Heywood House nearby. The house features original oak beams and the ceilings are low in many places but this all just adds to the charm! The original cottages have been carefully extended over the years to provide very spacious and varied accommodation.

The Wilderness is a  non-smoking and pet-free house.
