Relax in a Country House Retreat
Widbrook provides a range of accommodation, welcoming adults, families and corporate customers into the personal and homely atmosphere of this typically English Country House.
Built in the 1700’s
The name Widbrook dates from 1279 and relates to the brook that runs through the hotel’s grounds. Widbrook Grange was originally built as a model farm during the early 1700’s and consisted then, as it does today, of a large and impressive main house with its comfortable lounges and log fires.
It sits in a courtyard and is surrounded by stables and barns which now house some of the hotel’s bedrooms and its indoor swimming pool. On both sides of the house, reflecting its agricultural heritage, are some fine examples of bee bowls and extensive lawns sweep down to the brook.
Perfectly located and set in eleven acres of grounds
We are just outside the historic town of Bradford on Avon, and are nestled in the peaceful Wiltshire countryside yet within easy access to Bath, Longleat, Trowbridge and Stonehenge.
In our 11 acres of grounds and gardens we have deer walking through, doves flying around and nesting in our dovecote, rabbits, pheasant and squirrels happily feeding, buzzards and sparrow hawks can be seen hunting. Badgers have sets in the grounds and we also have a family of foxes (not good news for the chickens).
There is plenty of space for children to play in safety without disturbing the adults and we have a nature trail throughout the grounds; 25 different varieties of birds have been spotted.
