The Experience

This traditional cottage dates back to the early 19th-century and has all the character you’d expect, from some very old doors, oak flooring and window seats to an original secret staircase.

Rachel lives in the attached house with her family, but there’s a blocked off room between the two properties so noise doesn’t carry and both feel private. Find a generous welcome pack with enough for a wonderful first breakfast – a bottle of Prosecco, sausages and bacon from the farm shop, organic milk, butter and eggs from the local farm. There’s a big table in the kitchen to eat around or you can sit out in two private garden areas.

The nearest pub is The Lord Nelson Inn in Marshfield, a four-minute drive; Allington farm shop and restaurant, which has wonderful local produce, is a 10 minute drive. Chocolate-box Castle Combe and Dyrham Park National Trust are less than 15 minutes’ drive, Westonbirt Arboretum is 30 minutes, Bristol 40.

The neighbourhood

The property is up a small lane in the little village of Upper Wraxhall, and is surrounded by field and farmland so feels very secluded. There are no shops or services in the village but you're only a 10-minute drive from the M4, making it a great, accessible location for those travelling from London and elsewhere - you're in the countryside but within easy reach of Bath.

Local points of interest from Rachel & Noel Avent

  • Woodseaves is one of the oldest properties in the village, which boasts a village green and duck pond
  • With a short walk from the house, you can explore the neighbouring hamlets, offering lovely dog walks and rural off-track walks.
  • Woodseaves is dog friendly; dogs and kids are free to roam here.


Rachel & Noel Avent

Rachel works in events and her husband Noel is a builder. They live in the house next door with their two children and dog. They bought the house and cottage a few years ago and have been gradually restoring both over the past few years.
