Elbow Cottage lies on the Kennet and Avon Canal overlooking the River Avon in the picturesque Limpley Stoke valley. It is accessed by car from Turleigh down a half-mile farm track. In spite of its rural setting it is within 15 minutes walk of trains and buses and 40 minutes walk of Bradford on Avon. Bath is 12 minutes away by train and 20 minutes by bus.
The two-bedroomed holiday cottage is a modern addition to the original 1815 stone-built house in its acre of garden and its interesting history linked to the canal. It is a good base for walking, cycling, canoeing besides visiting Bath, Bristol, Salisbury etc
Access with steps
There are steps from the main entrance to:Bedroom
Travel by public transport
However, Avoncliff station is only accessed by a long flight of steps so Bradford on Avon Station is better if guests have difficulty walking.
Travel by taxi
By car our access is down half a mile of farm track with 2 gates. This is not suitable for low slung cars though our Ford Fiesta is OK. If using a satnav, you should use the postcode BA15 2HH to Green Lane Turleigh. Turn right at the end of Green Lane in front of signs 'Private Road No Parking' and also 'Elbow Cottage'. Follow the farm track/bridleway for half a mile. Elbow Cottage is the only house on the left at the bottom of the track.
Cars can park immediately outside front entrance or 5 metres away on level ground.
Path to main entrance
There is a small door sill. We are normally in residence so would be able to help with luggage by prior arrangement.
