Luxury holiday cottage near Bath

The Wilderness is a magnificent house in a quiet Wiltshire hamlet boasting original 17C oak beams and an Inglenook log fireplace. The house sleeps 16-18 in comfort. We love large parties, family groups and hen parties (sorry, no stags). There are 3 separate living rooms, a well equipped kitchen with range cooker and a large dining room with a table for 18.

Fabulous private gardens with a BBQ and a log-fired Finnish Sauna house! Ample parking. Farm shop nearby. Great village pub with food. 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.
