I had high expectations when we drew up outside Priory Steps as I had heard good things about the brand Wolsey Lodges. It was originally six 17th century weavers cottages now convered into wonderful accommodation commanding stunning views over the town and beyond. I was warmly greeted and treated to tea and homemade cakes by our hosts Carey and Diane.
This light spacious and charming house was at one time the home of The Hon Mrs. Victor Bruce, the First Lady to win the Monte Carlo Rally in 1928 and the first Englishwoman to fly round the world. Items of fascinating memorabilia are displayed around the house.
I has a wonderful nights sleep in the spacious room with an extremely comfortable bed. The breakfast included The finest Wiltshire bacon and sausages – the pride of the county.
The hospitality was laid back, relaxing and real home from home. Our hosts made time to show me their interesting town, describing the history and recommending further visits which made my stay more enjoyable.
Bradford on Avon is a real gem and only eight miles from Bath.
I look forward to visiting my new friends in the future.
