White Hart Cottage is perfectly situated for a tranquil country break, or for those who want to enjoy the experience of the Roman City of Bath (3 miles away) or the Saxon town of Bradford-on-Avon (3 miles away). From the local village train station you can access either the south coast or south Wales in under an hour.

From restaurants, exhibitions, art, theatre, golf, rugby, horse racing, coarse & game fishing, shopping and world heritage sites to pampering at Bath's Thermae Spa - it's all available to guests to make their stay a memorable one.

There is a very regular bus service and trains from the village if you wish to leave your car at home and bikes (and canoes!) can be hired to explore the River Avon, Kennet & Avon canal and the many cycle routes on your doorstep.
