The name Widbrook dates from 1279 and relates to the brook that runs through the hotel's grounds. Widbrook Grange was originally built as a model farm during the early 1700's and consisted then, as it does today, of a large and impressive main house with its comfortable lounges and log fires. Surrounded by stables and barns which now house many bedrooms and an indoor swimming pool. On both sides of the house, reflecting its agricultural heritage, are some fine examples of bee bowls and extensive lawns sweep down to the brook.

Bath Abbey

The last of the great medieval churches of England, where the first King of England was crowned. Called "The Lantern of the West" thanks to its beautiful stained glass windows.

Bradford On Avon

The Hotel is an easy walk or cycle along the canal to visit many historic sights, browse the independent shops and eat or drink in the many cafes and restaurants.

 
Architecture

The town has many fine examples of architecture from the Saxon, Medieval, Tudor, Georgian and Industrial Revolution periods. Also, to the north of the town, there was an Iron Age Fort and, recently discovered, a very important Roman villa.

 
Saxon church

The Saxon Church of St. Laurence dates from the early 11th century and is one of the most complete examples of a chapel of that period. It is an unforgettable experience to stand in the tall, narrow stone built nave and admire the two flying angels set high on the wall above.

 
Tithe Barn

The stunning Tithe Barn was built in the mid 14th century and inspires the same sort of awe that one feels on entering a great cathedral. Used as a setting for several TV dramas (most recently Wolf Hall), it is 168 feet long with a massive timbered roof spanning 33 feet beneath stone tiles weighing 100 tons. It retains its old threshing floors and other features from its agricultural past.

 
Barton Grange farm

Set in the beautiful Barton Farm Country Park, with its ancient packhorse bridge and bordered by the River Avon and Kennet and Avon Canal, is a range of medieval buildings. This was the grange of the nuns of Shaftesbury Abbey who had been granted the manor of Bradford by King Ethelred in AD 1001...

 
Town Bridge

The name of the town originates from the 'broad ford' across the River Avon and the bridge is a natural focus for the town. Although widened in the 17th century, it still retains two of the original 13th century arches. A notable feature is the 'Blind House' built in the 18th century to serve as the town lock-up.

 

Kennet and Avon canal

Originally opened in 1810 the canal runs from Reading to Bristol. One of the deepest locks on the canal is in Bradford on Avon. Boat hire and boat trips are available from the working wharf and a particularly attractive mile and a half stretch to Avoncliffe is a popular walk.

 
Avoncliff

Built of stone from local quarries, the magnificent Avoncliff Aqueduct carries the canal over the River Avon and the railway line to Bath. A nearby picturesque old pub with its riverside gardens is a popular refreshment stop.

 
The Town Centre

The Shambles, the meat market in medieval times, is now a bustling pedestrian walkway lined with a range of small, independent shops. Among the many attractive shops and eating places in the town centre, is the Victorian Tea Shop which has been named by the prestigious UK Tea Guild as the ‘UK's Top Tea Place'.

 
Museum

Browse around the museum which is home to a diverse and fascinating collection illustrating the history of the town. Of particular interest is the Christopher Pharmacy, an exact reconstruction of the Victorian chemist's shop which used to serve the town.

Peace and Quiet

JW, West Midlands, stayed: October 2018

Overall we found the hotel good.
On our 2nd night I had an unpleasant experience in the restaurant, I found the menu rather limited (I don't eat fish or offal) and so I ordered the chicken and bacon salad. The chicken looked and tasted nothing like chicken. It was rubbery and tasteless and I think it was not a fresh chicken breast but a preformed one. I could not find any bacon in the salad. I told the waiter of my concerns, he argued with me (loudly) and at my request removed my main course. I was still hungry so requested the cheese course. I was nowhere the 30 allowance for dinner but was nevertheless charged 8 for 6 wafer thin biscuits, 3 tiny bits of cheese and NO butter. Also the septic tank was fairly smelly (I know that's no ones fault ) but thought you would like to be aware of this. Pool was good.

Lovely location and helpful staff, bed and wifi let it down

Charlotte, stayed: September 2018

My partner and I stayed at Widbrook grange for a long weekend as a relaxing break in the country in September 2018. The location was lovely, with scenic walks in both directions along the Kennet and Avon canal and an easy flat stroll to Bradford on Avon. The house is lovely, with homely, warm and welcoming areas to sit and read or have a glass of wine and chat. The gin bar was excellent, with a wide range on offer. The breakfast was good and we had breakfast in our room on the final morning which was an added treat. Our main reasons for rating the hotel as OK rather than excellent was the bed (which in the classic room was surprisingly small and very soft leading to a restless night of poor sleep), the wifi, which didn't work at all in our room in the hay barn, and the Sunday lunch, which sadly was a real disappointment (beef was fatty throughout and overall wasn't as tasty as we'd hoped). There's definitely some room for improvement which affected our impression of value for money. For me the bed and quality of sleep is so important on a weekend away and it was a shame that this let the hotel down.
