The SpaceThe apartment used to be a hay loft of the stables of the local manor house. Original wooden beams, hardwood flooring, and other features.
Now converted to luxury accommodation with all mod cons, 2 bathrooms with walk-in power-showers, private kitchen, internet etc
Situated just across the road from Chippenham railway station, with direct line to Bath, Bristol, London etc, and buses to local villages such as Castle Combe and Lacock (Harry Potter).
Being in the town centre, all the shops, restaurants, and take-aways are a minutes walk away. There's also a cinema around the corner.
It's the perfect place to stay whether for business or pleasure. For convenience and independence, there is self-service access via keysafes, but I or a nice neighbour will always be on hand to help you with anything you might need... so make yourself at home in my home!
There's no better place in town to stay!
Babies / toddlers: the apartment is thoroughly baby / toddler tested, has a child-safety gate, and hardwood enamelled floor for easy cleaning. There is room to leave a pram in the communal hallway downstairs.
Additional guests: there is a futon in the lounge, and a mezzanine double bed for upto 4 extra guests to sleep. There is also a second bathroom, so less waiting for the shower!
Parking is free on the street from 4pm till 10am, and all day Sunday. Paid parking is 5 pounds per day across the road, or it can be included in the booking if requested. Guest AccessGuests have the apartment to themselves. During short stays, guests may also leave a pram or pushchair in the communal hallway downstairs, provided there is room and it does not cause an obstruction. Interaction with GuestsCheck-in and out is handled through a key safe system, allowing guests total flexibility, independence and privacy. Details of this, as well as directions, contact numbers etc are sent with the booking confirmation. I'm usually away but remain contactable and my lovely neighbour is on hand if needed. The NeighborhoodBeing right by the town centre there is lots to see and do, and yet the apartment is tucked behind the garden of an old cottage making it very quiet. For outdoors there is Monkton park just next which door offers a great space for walking, running along the river, and there is a golf course and health centre with pool, spa, squash courts, and full fitness programmes all available on pay-as-you-go basis. A few minutes walk away is John Coles park which has a band stand with live music playing in the summer months. Both parks have excellent childrens playgrounds.
The old town has plenty of character, and there is a museum giving free tours, and a comprehensive tourist information office. All 5 minutes walk from the apartment. Getting AroundThe apartment is situated just across the road from Chippenham railway station, with direct line to Bath, Bristol, London etc, and buses to local villages such as Castle Combe and Lacock (Harry Potter). There is a taxi rank at the station and also at the bottom of the road, and for groups this is an economical option (rates around 10 pounds to many local villages) Other Things to NotePlease note if you are enquiring for 2 people but require separate beds, there maybe a charge for the supply of extra linen and bedding. Please enquire, as this is not automatically offered by airbnb, unless you are booking for 3 or more people.
