A Country-House in Wiltshire2 Nights | bed & breakfast

Set in the Wiltshire countryside, this house is the birthplace of Reverend Awdry, a well-known pastor and children's book author. As a child he was lying awake listening to the trains in the distance, wondering what kind of conversations they might have. Many years later these childhood memories were transformed into the worldfamous stories of Thomas the Tankengine. The current owners of the house, Mike and Fran have redecorated it with the help of a designer and turned it into a cozy B&B. Many original features are still about: the oak flooring or individual pieces of furniture. Those who wants to explore the area should seek advice from Mike. Bath is only 15 minutes by car and a bus runs directly from their doorstep.
