This apartment is situated right In the centre of Bradford on Avon overlooking the bridge. We arrived along with a very cold turn in the weather and the flat was warm throughout our stay. A parking space is reserved for the apartment and this is invaluable. The apartment is the middle floor of a splendid building and is beautifully appointed with everything you could need. The owners live in the flat above and are very friendly and approachable. We had a very enjoyable, comfortable short stay.
Being new to the whole airBnB thing , I was a little dubious about this listing, and this particular gem seemed too good to be true.
But I must say that I was happily proved wrong:
Booking, availability for enquiries : 10/10
Warmth and availability of the hosts : 20/10
the appartment: 10/10
Small gestures and advice : (completely unexpected , but oh so appreciated) 20/10
( I have never stayed in an hotel , where they leave a little bag of bird food at your door , so your little boy can feed the cygnets!)
Question to the hospitality industry: how is it that this air BnB is the most welcoming place I have ever stayed in? And I like to think I have stayed in some nice places.
If Airbnb needed to showcase their product, they should seriously contemplate speaking to the owners of the Georgian lodge.
And if hotels ever wanted to improve their "sens d'acceuil" , they should contemplate doing likewise.
Many thanks to Hans and Jackie for making our stay so enjoyable,
A newly converted air BnB-er.
We had the honor of being the first guests at the newly remodeled Georgian Lodge in June and we were not disappointed! Hans and Jackie spent a lot of time on the lodge and it shows. They created a warm and inviting home away from home and it is all in the details. The decor is so lovely you don't even want to leave the lodge! The kitchen and pantry were stocked with a few starter items as well, such as coffee, tea, eggs, orange juice and to top it off, a bottle of prosecco! I can't say enough wonderful things about Jackie and Hans, two lovely hosts who go above and beyond to ensure every guest has a truly enjoyable stay with them. We plan to visit the Georgian Lodge again on our next trip to England. The Georgian Lodge is a beautiful gem in Bradford-on-Avon!

apartment was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished.
The views of the ancient stone bridge are lovely and perfect for watching the swans!
The 500 year old Tea Rooms next door genuinely serve the best cream teas I have ever had.
The canal and river walks were wonderful, and we saw kingfishers and herons.
The apartment's location is two minutes walk from the train station, with direct regular trains to Bath and Bristol which was perfect for our needs.
