Trowbridge

Sitting to the south of the Mendip Hills is the county town of Wiltshire, the ancient market town of Trowbridge; a perfect cottage break for exploring the Cotswolds and close by Bath.

With evidence of farming at Trowbridge dating back over three thousand years and records of the first village at Trowbridge in the tenth century it is no surprise that Trowbridge’s history is a rich tapestry. This history is evident in the varied architecture of the town. Once known as ‘The Manchester of the West’, because of its prevalence in the 18th and 19th century textiles industry, there are many old industrial buildings and mill buildings as well as the extravagant homes of wealthy cloth merchants dotted throughout the town.

These include the unique and fascinating Handle House, which was used to dry out the teasels. The beautiful Newtown conservation area is well worth a visit to see a protected zone made up of mostly Victorian architecture. One of the most imposing buildings in the town sits in Market Street, the Town Hall was gifted to the town by a local businessman to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1889.

Wiltshire’s earliest market charter is held by Trowbridge, dating back to 1200 and the market town heritage is kept alive today with a weekly street market, regular farmers markets selling local produce and a smorgasbord of independent and national retailers to provide a diverse and interesting shopping experience.

As well as being steeped in history Trowbridge can also offer a modern cultural scene, with various fayres and festivals held by the town throughout the year, state of the art leisure facilities and a bustling night life.

So whether you are looking for old world charm, a richly woven history or somewhere to let your hair down then Trowbridge has something for you; search for holiday cottages in Trowbridge today.
