Quality Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast Accommodation
Lovett Farm has been in the family for four generations. Our Farmhouse has delightful views overlooking the Dauntsey Vale and is situated on the edge of the Cotswolds, just three miles from the ancient town of Malmesbury and a 7 mile drive from the M4 motorway, Junctions 16 and 17. Whilst we make every effort to accommodate all the needs of our guests, we regret that our first floor accommodation is unsuitable for wheelchair users who are unable to climb the stairs. The main staircase is also the fire escape route.
Full details and photographs of our accommodation can be found on our website, and bookings or enquiries are welcomed by telephone or by e-mail. Please see full contact details at the foot of this statement.
We are located on the side of the B4042 just outside the village of Little Somerford.
The nearest bus stop is just a few metres from the farm entrance and buses run to Malmesbury, Chippenham and Swindon every hour. There are no buses available on Sundays. The nearest railway station is Chippenham, just 9 miles away.
There are a number of local taxi companies and we will be happy to book a taxi in advance for you on request.
The nearest general store and Post Office is 2 miles away at Great Somerford.
There are several village pubs and restaurants serving excellent food within a short drive. The Saladin in Little Somerford serves excellent food and is only a few minutes walk away.
Our brochure and menu are available in large print but unfortunately we do not have the facilities to provide copies in Braille.
As we have a family dog we regret that we are unable to accept pets.
Please advise us of your anticipated arrival time to ensure that we are here to personally welcome you.

Breakfast is served at a large table in the dining/sitting room, on the ground floor. You will find a breakfast menu on the dresser, and in the bookcase information on many of the local attractions and nearby places of interest to help you make the most of your stay.
