This flat is an absolute gem hidden in the heart of Chippenham. While the space is small it has been cleverly organised so it feels spacious and, in our case, could accommodate a family of 5. The flat is nicely decorated and furnished was a relaxing place to come back to at the end of the day. Alex was really great with communication and so getting in to the flat and getting going was easy and straightforward. The location is great, with Sainsburys Local just opposite, a lovely park & playground just down the hill with a riverside walk along the Avon, and the town centre only a very short walk over the river. About the only slightly awkward thing was that there is no parking right by the flat, but there is free off peak parking on the next road, and a pay and display car park at the train station opposite.
A charming room with all amenities and homely features and finishing touches. Love the bathroom! Very close to the train station and just 5 minutes walk from the park and main shopping area.
Great place to stay in Chippenham! Alex is super helpful and very communicative and makes sure you have all the information you need. It's very near the station and town centre and parking was really easy and really close. We did self-service access which again was clearly explained and very easy to do. Thanks very much - would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.
Alex' artists studio downstairs and studio apartment upstairs were great for us, a group of six, looking for a place for a weekend with wheelchair access. The artists studio was very easy to find, with parking nearby. Very spacious and easy to move around. Bathroom/ wetroom was fine too - easy enough to get in and turn around, to use the loo and the wash basin. Would have needed to bring a shower chair to use the shower, but definitely enough space for that.
Alex was very patient and flexible with me and my friends, answering numerous queries prior to making the booking, and during the weekend too.
Location was brilliant, just a few minutes from the station, and a ten minute walk to the event we were attending in the town.
Would definitely recommend, and would stay here again.
I stayed with friends for a weekend in Alex's lovely place in Chippenham. We all loved it! It was really cosy, comfortable and a perfect location to travel around the area. Very close to supermarkets, restaurants and local pubs. Alex wasn't around at the time but communication was perfect. Highly recommended! Thanks Alex!
Hi Elsa, thanks for coming to stay, and for your kind words. You're all welcome back anytime! Cheers, Alex
My first experience with Airbnb could not have been better!!! I fell in love with the apartment which is beautifully restored. The apartment is literally two minutes walk from the train station, which allows great access to the likes of London, Bristol and Bath! Chippenham is a beautiful town and has nice places to eat and great coffee shops if you don't want to stray too far! Alex was a great host and so willing to answer any questions I had! Couldn't recommend it enough!
We stayed in Alex's smaller apartment for two weeks and we have nothing but commendations to offer.
We were in for a pleasant surprise as the room was quite a bit more spacious than the photos would let us suggest. Likewise, the photos hardly allow the best view of the interior design which is deliberate and consistent. Original floorboards, limestone walls and heavy wooden rafters—the apartment is full of delightfully old-fashioned character which is further supported by the way the room is furnished. There is hardly a single item to compromise this charming rustic vibe, everything is either profoundly neutral or vintage. I cannot help but appreciate the owner's sense of style and the effort made to maintain this particular aesthetic—even though the 1979 TV set may be pushing it a bit too far for some people.
Another thing worthy of separate notice is the exceptionally convenient location of the studio. Granted Chippenham itself is notoriously unpretentious, and the immediate surroundings of the property are hardly a spectacular sight, the proximity of the rail station makes it a perfect place for someone willing to explore Wiltshire and beyond. Bristol and Bath are easily accessible by rail — as are Oxford, Cardiff and Salisbury. The villages of Lacock, Castle Combe, Cherhill and Avebury are well within walking distance. Most importantly, Chippenham is situated more or less half-way through the famous North Wiltshire Rivers long distance path, so more than a few remarkably scenic walks in either direction may be endeavoured.
While we did not meet Alex in person, he was a very welcoming host, approachable and always willing to assist us with any enquiry that may have emerged throughout our stay. It also has to be said that the room is priced reasonably to say the least—a similar accommodation in Bristol can easily run twice as dear.
Admittedly, the Stables Studio may be somewhat suboptimal for a light sleeper. However, the elaborately designed interior, the convenient location and the sensible price make this offer simply unbeatable.
Staying here was incredibly convenient - from the location a minute's walk from the station, to the system of entering the apartment via keys kept in coded safes. The apartment itself is incredible at this price - I loved the wooden floors, stone walls, the views out over gardens, trees and old stone cottages.
The beds are comfortable, the showers are hot and powerful, everything is cosy and comfortable, even the rustic clay crockery is noteworthy. I recommend this place very highly.
We had a fantastic time at the stables, it was a wonderful place to stay and great value for money. It was just as described and we would recommend it to anyone.
We had a lovely Christmas in the Stable at Chippenham. It was very peaceful yet right in the middle of town and extremely well located for the station (easy access to Bath,Bristol, Reading, London).On the edge of the Cotswolds it's a great base for exploring. The flat is well appointed & comfortable. We felt very at home and relaxed. There are plenty of good facilities nearby (shops, pubs, leisure centre, parks all within a couple of minutes walk).
Alex was very kind and a good host.
No complaints at all - great place to stay.
Alex was lovely and offered good advice as he has lots of air bnb experience.
Alex is a great guest. I had a very good time here with him. I really enjoyed talking to him, and we talked a lot :) Hope to see him again.
Alex was a brilliant guest, and a great guy too! He was very respectful of the property and took great care of it. Communication was great and he was super helpful with everything. He had lots of great advice for me being a seasoned AirBnB'er, which will in turn make my hosting better. Next time I'm in the Bath area I'll definitely be using Alex's place for accommodation. Welcome back any time!
I really liked Alex, he was a really easy guest, interesting to talk to and very clean and tidy. Would not hesitate to host him again.
Alex is a great guest, charming and friendly and we recommend him without reserve.
Alex was the perfect guest so tidy and considerate and a delight to talk to. He can come back anytime.
It was a real pleasure to have Alex stay with us. He'd planned to arrive late in the evening though kept me very well.informed during his journey here. A really friendly guy, he fitted right into our home like he was one of the family. Hope to see him back some time soon !
It was a pleasure to have Alex as my guest, good communication and he left the place tidy. I can just recommed Alex to any other host.
Alex is stayed at my place for 2 nights (one night with his mother). My experience was brilliant! Definitely I would like to repeat one day! They are very nice guests ´very responsble, clean, polite and friendly. Highly recommended!
Un chico muy agradable. Todo fue perfecto con el . 100 % recomendable.
I met Alex when I was living and working in London. I also have stayed at his Flat in St James when I was visiting London and its a wonderful location. So central to everything and walking distance to all the major tourist sites. He kept his flat very neat, comfortable and excellent decor. An excellent host and a top guy. I don't know anybody that doesn't like him he is easy going and an ideas man!
Alex has a really comfortable and quiet flat just 5 minutes from the Houses of Parliament. You can walk to nearly all the major tourist spots or just hop on a bus and you'll be anywhere in central London before long.
I would highly recommend Alex as a host. He's very well organised and professional and loves to meet people from different countries and cultural backgrounds. I've known him a long time and he's never let me down!
