Details

This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

This attractive terraced cottage is in the heart of the picturesque village of Lacock, next door to the Red Lion pub with its excellent food and welcoming open fires. Lacock is a popular location for film and television and the cottage was used by the stars of the popular costume drama "Cranford" to relax in between takes. The cottage is full of character: many rooms display the fifteenth-century timber-cruck frame, and there are interesting additions from later centuries, including a recent refurbishment. Lacock is close to Bath and the Wiltshire downs.

South West England

The South West region is probably England's most well-known holiday hotspot, being home to some of the most famous seaside resorts. Pretty villages and harbours in Cornwall, many with sweeping sandy beaches, such as St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to name but a few, give way to sophisticated seaside resorts in Devon and Dorset which include Bournemouth, Torquay and Ilfracombe. The history of this region is unrivalled; Wiltshire's spectacular downland and the stone circles at Avebury and Stonehenge, through Hardy's Dorset, dramatic Dartmoor and gentler Exmoor, to the mining landscapes of Cornwall and West Devon, which are now recognised as being of international significance, having been awarded World Heritage Site status in 2006. The Trust protects 370 miles of the coastline in Devon and Cornwall and, wherever you are in the two far western counties, you're never more than 25 miles from the sea. As well as this peninsula, the Trust also cares for much of the countryside in Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset and a wide array of fascinating properties to visit and explore. Not surprisingly, perhaps, this area is also home to the widest selection of National Trust holiday cottages.

Avebury and Lacock

Many thousands of visitors drive across the rolling downlands of south and west Wiltshire passing Stonehenge on one of the main routes to holiday destinations in Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. Those who do break their journey with a visit to the stone circle at Avebury, one of the most important megalithic monuments in Europe, or to glorious Stourhead, are captivated by the rolling countryside of this part of the ancient kingdom of Wessex. In the heart of rural Wiltshire is the historic village of Lacock, with its Abbey and High Street, now famous as the location for TV and film dramas, including Lark Rise to Candleford. National Trust Cottages give you an opportunity to stay within the stone circle itself at Avebury, or in Lacock's High Street.

    Attention to detail

    Lovely weekend

    We had a lovely weekend here in October. Lacock is amazing, like stepping back in time, the cottage was lovely and would be fabulous in the summer sitting outdoors but a bit too cold in October. We did however have a real fire and a pub next door which did tasty food. We are planning a return visit with our parents in the spring.

    This beautiful cottage was the perfect place for our weekend away. Well done to the cottages team for the work they have done in preparing this for holiday makers. The cottage looks compact and bijou, but is like a tardis with lots of rooms. The kitchen/utility is superbly appointed for keen cooks. The sitting room is very comfortable with a lovely woodburner, and there's a good shower room. The bedrooms are large and beds very comfy. All perfect for friends or families. From the front door you step into the main street of the lovely village with intriguing small shops, fascinating places of historic interest and cosy tea rooms, the Fox Talbot Museum, the Pottery, local craft fairs and the opportunity to sample local food. Dinner at the Red Lion was so good that we went back for Sunday lunch.
