Leafield House description

Everyone seems to have had a lot of fun here! It’s a wonderful base for discovering Wiltshire, Somerset and the Cotswolds with its vast array of attractions. The huge library/games room has proved to be a very popular alternative for those ’stay at home’ days, particularly as it includes children’s toys for all ages, as well as a pool table, table tennis table and a piano for the more grown up, with loads and loads of books and games for every age and taste.
Its six bedrooms sleep 11 in comfort (four kingsize, a twin and a single). The downstairs comprises living room, a quiet room (second living room) and library/games room. The half level up hosts a large kitchen breakfast room, dining room (seating for 12), entrance conservatory, two doubles and a single bedroom along with a wet room (bath, separate shower etc) and a separate cloakroom. The first floor comprises two doubles and a twin bedroom, all with en-suites, one of which has an additional bath. Outside are private grounds with patio (seating for 12) and a BBQ.
Leafield House is set in wonderful countryside with far-reaching views, and nestles in a valley on the southern edge of the Cotswolds, away from busy traffic yet within easy reach of the M4. Upper Seagry, the nearest village (a mile away with pub and restaurant) is just one of the many picturesque villages in the area to discover.
Popular attractions, many of which permit dogs, include Malmesbury, 5 miles north, with its 12th-century Benedictine abbey (King Aethelstan, first king of all England, is buried there). Country houses include Bowood House, Corsham Court, Lacock Abbey, Dyrham Park, Stourhead and Chedworth Roman Villa. Cotswold Water Park is popular with children whilst Westonbirt, the National Arboretum, with its extensive collection of trees and shrubs provides a pleasant day out for older members of the party. The picturesque village of Castle Combe (a favourite film location for TV dramas and films) is nearby as is Grittleton and Badminton. The impressive Roman city of Bath and the cosmopolitan city of Bristol with its numerous museums and bustling docks are within easy reach. The ancient stone circles at Stonehenge and Avebury (also Silbury Hill), the Neolithic fort at Barbury Castle and of course the Ridgeway (Britain’s oldest road) which runs from Salisbury plain to East Anglia will please those interested in history. For horse lovers, the annual Badminton Horse Trials, Barbury Castle Horse Trials and Dauntsey Horse Trials are held nearby, and there is easy access to the racecourses at Newbury, Bath and Cheltenham. For those on two wheels, Leafield House is on the Wiltshire Cycle way. For the outside types who love walking and clean fresh air (with or without dogs), there are innumerable places you can discover such as the Fosse Way with its original Roman bridge, or along the river at Malmesbury.
