Bramley Cottage is ideally situated near many sightseeing destinations - the mysterious stone circles of Stonehenge, Longleat Safari Park, the trendy towns of Frome & Bruton and Stourhead Mansion. Bath with its Georgian buildings and Roman baths and Salisbury are just a short train ride away. Iron Age hill forts and the lovely villages of the Wylye Valley are on our doorstep. We invite you to stay with us in our cosy stone cottage while you explore the many amazing places in the area.

The space

Our home is a lovely old two-storey stone cottage from the 19th century which gives it character and charm. Yet, it has been expanded and updated with contemporary bathrooms and kitchen so that it has modern comfort. The layout is quirky with the garden stretching out to the side of the building which belies the size of the façade of the building. The guest rooms are completely private but they are part of the main residence where we live, so
we share some of the common spaces.

About the guest rooms...

The main guest bedroom on the first floor is light and airy with a view across the road of Boreham Manor. It has an antique decor including a brass bed with a comfortable double-sized mattress. Your private detached bathroom where you can enjoy a shower or bath is just a few steps away. There are plush guest robes so you can pop across the hall easily.

One of the sitting rooms downstairs is your private space with sofa and desk for laptops or writing, but it can also be used as a bedroom for extra guests or members of the family. The sofa converts into a small double-sized bed (4 feet across) with an additional thick memory foam mattress added on top for greater comfort. Guests in this room have a small bathroom with shower off the kitchen for their private use.

A continental breakfast including a variety of breads, spreads, cereals, fruit and drinks is served in the morning. You’ll be spoiled for choice.

Coffee and a selection of tea are left by the kettle so that feel free to help yourself to a cuppa any time.

Guest access

Besides their own private areas, guests are welcome to relax in the shared spaces - the main sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and wood-burning stove or in our large sunny country kitchen which opens out onto the patio and a spacious garden.

Interaction with guests

We will be here to offer advice, assistance and anything you need to make your stay with us special. We love getting to know new people but we also understand that you may prefer your privacy. Please let us know beforehand about any expectations you may have.

Other things to note

Please note that the 2 beds are in separate rooms on different floors. Also, the second bed is a "small double" which is 6 inches narrower than a full double. This may or may not suit your group, especially families with small children. Please see the photos we have posted and contact us if you need more clarification.

We also offer a homestay experience for English learners with opportunity for lots of conversation practice. For an additional fee, you can also take private English lessons at home with an experienced and certified ESL instructor. Contact us for more details.

Steve and Jan are a couple that you would love to meet when you have not been to Uk for more then 10 years. I booked for 2 nights as i wanted to visit bath which is about a half an hour drive from their place. The place had exceeded our expectations and they were more then helpful in giving us a very pleasent experience. The beds were super duper comfy and i slept like a baby for the 2 nights i was there. Wifi was good all around the house. Overall I would definately go back there to stay if I am ever around that part of UK.

Fabulous night's sleep on super comfy beds in spotlessly clean home with lovely linens and towels, tasteful decoration and generous hospitality from well-travelled hosts. Loved staying with Jan and Steve, friendly, easy to communicate with, helpful with suggestions for evening dining out, relaxed chat over lovely fresh, continental style breakfast in stunning contemporary/cottage kitchen. Enjoyed every minute. Thanks so much!

It doesn't get any better! A beautiful, pristine house with every conceivable comfort. First class. Jan and Steve utterly charming, and good fun! Delicious wholesome breakfast to boot. If you stay here you are very lucky! We will certainly return if we ever get the chance. A real treat which put the icing on the cake of our short break away. Delightful.

I highly recommend staying at Jan & Steve’s place. We were bit later than check-in time at the place and Jan & Steve made no problems with it. We were also served very tasty breakfast and advised on the surrounding area. First-class experience.

Jan & Steve User ProfileJan & Steve is a superhost.

Here's a bit about us.

Jan: I'm originally from California but spent over 20 years teaching English in Japan and am well-versed in Japanese culture and language. After meeting Steve on a fateful trek in Nepal a few years ago, I left Japan for the UK. Snowboarding is my passion but now I'm mostly into cycling instead as there's just not enough snow in Wiltshire! I love traveling abroad, especially in Asia to experience different cultures and landscapes and to meet new people. When I can't get away, I "journey" through books, movies, music and food from all over the world.

Steve: I was an advertising photographer and enjoyed mountaineering in my spare time. Retired now, I spend most of my time cycling and hiking around the Wiltshire countryside with Jan. I am full of stories of my adventures, knowledge about English wildlife and history, and fun (or so my friends tell me). Nothing is more important to me than spending time in the beauty of nature, especially in the UK. I've also trekked several times in Nepal, worked in the wilds of Canada and traveled throughout South America. That's why I tend to read and watch films about nature, adventure and travel - also, most importantly, about protecting our planet.

Our current dream is to cycle tour in Iceland and Eastern Europe.
Until we have our panniers packed though, we hope you will bring the world to us
by visiting us in our Wiltshire cottage.
