Bradford-on-Avon straddles the river on the southern edge of the Cotswold Hills, and Priory Steps offering luxury bed and breakfast B&B accommodation was originally a terrace of six weavers cottages and has stunning views over the beautiful historic townscape.
Old leather sofas nestle in the library, perfect for Wolsey Lodge B&B guests to enjoy a relaxing pre-dinner drink. The dining room, with crackling log fire on chilly evenings, has a door onto the exquisite terraced garden, filled with fragrant roses, clematis and passion flowers clambering over wonderful old Cotswold stone walls.
This light, spacious home was purchased from the world record breaking aviatrix and motor racer, The Hon Mrs Victor Bruce - the first lady to win the Monte Carlo Rally Coupe Des Dames in 1928 and the first Englishwoman to fly solo around the world. Fascinating memorabilia relating to her exploits are displayed in the house.
The luxury bed and breakfast accommodation includes five comfortably furnished bedrooms, each with en suite, and includes ‘Mrs Bruce's' with its own sitting room. Priory Steps is perfect for large groups of Wolsey Lodge B&B guests as well as for house parties.
