As the name implies, this cottage once housed the keeper whose job it was to operate the lock immediately adjacent to it. Recently renovated to a high standard, the cottage now offers bright and comfortable accommodation with a grandstand view of narrowboats on the Kennet and Avon Canal, either moored to the bank or moving slowly along and `locking through` just beyond the garden.
If you fancy exploring the canal yourself, narrow boat trips can be arranged at Bradford-on-Avon or you can just follow the towpath, which affords scenic walks - to a conveniently placed pub, 'The Barge Inn', in one direction. The whole area contains much of interest for day excursions: Longleat House and Safari Park, Stonehenge, Bowood House (including golf) and Lacock Abbey are all within easy reach by car, while the beautiful Georgian city of Bath, a World Heritage site, is only 20 miles away.
Lock Keeper’s Cottage has been thoughtfully redesigned to provide light and surprisingly large spaces and is a very pleasant base for exploring this interesting area.
