This unique property was formerly a toll house, and is a great base from which to explore Georgian Bath and the attractions of Bristol.

Pike Cottage is a former road toll house at Acton Turville, and now offers delightful holiday accommodation. The principal structure is thought to have been built for the Turnpike Trust in the 19th century, in the form of a lodge house with an angular frontage and village clock. A well preserved Grade II listed property and adjacent to the owners’ home, it has many original features and boasts a central village location. The double bedroom even has the original, working Toll House clock (which can be silenced). Acton Turville has a popular public house and is just 1 mile from Badminton, home to the annual horse trials.
Acton Turville’s proximity to Bath, a 20-minutes drive, and Bristol, 25 minutes, makes it an ideal base for exploring both cities. Bath is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and boasts Roman baths, a medieval abbey, a wealth of Georgian architecture and wonderful shops, whilst the historic maritime port of Bristol offers many visitor attractions. The Severn Bridge is 20 minutes by car and gives access to south Wales.
The beautiful villages of the Cotswolds are within easy reach, as are some famous Wiltshire sites, such as prehistoric Stonehenge and the magnificent Salisbury Cathedral. The area offers plenty of National Trust and English Heritage properties, such as Bowood and Longleat. Nearer to home are the quintessentially English villages of Lacock and Castle Coombe, and the lovely Dyrham Park and Westonbirt Arboretum. Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    I booked this cottage as I weekend away for our parents and they thoroughly loved it and want us all to go there as a family. The cottage was lovely and the location was perfect for them as a rural weekend get away. they said the pub across the road was ideally situated for food and the landlord was very friendly. They couldnt stop ringing up to rave about the place. I shall definitely take a trip myself
