About Us

Dating back to 1540, Church Cottage is a small and friendly bed and breakfast in the centre of the old village of Winsley. Originally one of 3 forges in the village at that time, it has been extended to incorporate a modern self contained bed and breakfast facility which is both private and spacious. The cottage is within an “Area of outstanding natural beauty”, 5 minutes from the Saxon village of Bradford on Avon and 15 minutes from the Georgian city of Bath. Buses run regularly from outside the cottage. There is a village shop and post office along with a cash dispenser. The Seven Stars pub serves excellent food 7 days a week with daily specials.

Hartley Farm shop and cafe is a 5 minute walk away.

The bed and breakfast has its own entrance and an inside and outside seating area. A freshly cooked “Aga breakfast” is served in the garden room.
