Your hosts


John and Jan have extensive experience in hospitality.  They set up the very successful Clifton House Boutique B&B in Bradford on Avon which was awarded the rare accolade of Five Stars with Gold Award for Guest Accommodation.

With the addition of six quality holiday let cottages behind them, all of which were Four Star with Gold Award, John and Jan understand the importance of providing excellent holiday accommodation.

Living in a characterful 300 year old cottage in a rural Wiltshire hamlet, it seemed a perfect idea to consolidate their experience and welcome guests to this rural idyll.

John and Jan know and love this area so well, and are able to offer guidance on the myriad of amazing places to visit.

Interiors set the scene and Jan's skill and flair for collecting interesting artefacts are inspiring.  A passion for mirrors, chairs and interesting fabrics brings together a pleasing environment, often commmented upon.

John's expertise is in maintaining the beautiful gardens with parterre and decorative box hedging.  He also cooks a fantastic breakfast....! He is a navigational expert, so can direct you to wherever you wish to visit.

John and Jan have always employed the mission statement "would we stay there" when setting up a hospitality business.  Having supreme beds, beautiful linens, fluffy towels, gleaming bathrooms and delicious cooked breakfast adds "would we return" to the mix.  Their goal is to welcome guests back.

The welcome is warm here - we very much hope to see you very soon at Bleet Cottage where you can rest and recharge on a short break near Bath.
