About 2 High Street

In the centre of Lacock village, this attractive 15th-century cottage is packed full of charm and makes a cosy base for exploring Lacock Abbey and the countryside nearby.

You’ll love this little cottage sitting on the high street, and you can’t help but fall for its character, with its exposed timbers and wonky walls, sitting on a street of gorgeous stone, half-timbered and thatched buildings. You might even recognise lots of places nearby as the picturesque village is a popular filming location, featured in a variety of films and period dramas.

You’ll feel the past bursting out of this wonderful cottage as you unlock the front door. The cottage was recently used by the stars of popular costume drama Cranford to relax in between shoots. You can see why they chose this four-bedroom retreat with its wonky wooden window frames, slate floors and low ceilings. Downstairs there’s the comfy sitting room with log burning stove, dining room, downstairs shower room, single bedroom and a kitchen. Head up the winding staircase to the first floor where you’ll find the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a twin and single bedroom. Outside, enjoy the paved courtyard garden for al fresco dinners, it’s a beautiful suntrap on bright days.

The pretty shops, cafes and pubs of Lacock village will be on your doorstep when you stay. The village was once a centre for the medieval wool trade and today it still reflects those times with no television aerials or overhead cables to spoil the scene. A little further away you’ll find the town of Chippenham which is less than 10 minutes by car, with its mix of high street and independent shops. If you are looking for a great day trip, less than 15 miles away is the bustling city of Bath. For walks through rolling countryside and prehistoric landscapes visit the Wiltshire downs to the east and Stonehenge to the south.

Staying at this little cottage means you’ll have free access to both Lacock Abbey and The Fox Talbot Museum, the house that was once home to WillIam Henry Fox Talbot, (who invented the photographic negative) just a short stroll from the cottage. And if you’re a film fan as well, then you might recognise Lacock from its appearances in several of the Harry Potter films. Funds from your stay at 2 High Street helps us to care for this special place for everyone, for ever.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
