A world away, yet only 12 minutes by rail from Bath, this sixteenth-century canalside inn with sloping terraces down to the River Avon is popular with walkers, cyclists and narrowboaters. Overlooking the small village is the historic Avoncliff aqueduct where the Kennet & Avon canal crosses both the River Avon and the railway line. Features include inglenook fireplace, priest hole, garden bar, and resident ghost. Refurbished, inside and out, with superb gardens overlooking the valley. 100 yards from Avoncliff station. Car parks are nearby, one on the other side of the aqueduct, and one at the bottom of the hill from Westwood. Do not attempt to drive to the front of the pub!. Easy one-and-a-half mile walk along the canal from Bradford-on-Avon. Children and dogs welcome.
