Just beyond Bradford-on-Avon's bridge and 17th-century lock-up, Timbrell's Yard is well placed for exploring the pretty market town on foot. It is also right on the river, so a good starting point for a walk through Barton Farm Country Park to the aqueduct at Avoncliff. Bath is a 25-minute drive away. For an intimate dinner in Bradford-on-Avon try Bunch of Grapes, for a riverside brunch visit The Weaver's Shed, and for wine tasting, sample Cru Wines.

By car: the hotel is 45 mins from Bristol, 1 hour 30 mins from Oxford and 2 hours 30 mins from London. Free parking is available nearby.

By train: London Paddington to Bradford-on-Avon (via Westbury or Bath Spa) takes around 1 hour 50 mins. The hotel is a 3-minute walk from the station. Book trains to Bradford-on-Avon.

Once an 18th-century home, then a coaching inn, Timbrell's Yard has a hip, boutique style, with nods to the town's cloth industry heritage. Expect dressmaker dolls dotted about, lots of wood-clad walls, exposed lightbulbs and textured fabrics. The restaurant is spacious and the riverside terrace is deservedly popular in summer.


The reception desk is well-manned and the staff set the right tone. The desk is not open overnight though and guests should not expect extra services. The free car parking is handy but there is no room service. The bar and restaurant often get busy, so guests should book tables ahead of time.
