Spire View Guest House

Spire View is a self-contained holiday guest house, situated on the outskirts of the beautiful National Trust village of Lacock.

Welcome to Spire View Guest House, Lacock

Spire View is a two bedroomed house situated in the garden of our own eighteenth century stone cottage. We are located on the outskirts of the National Trust village of Lacock. The name Spire View comes from the view of Lacock church across the fields. Spire View is 25 minutes by car from Bath and situated between the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North Wessex Down Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with Salisbury and the Plain to the south.

Spire View has two bedrooms – one double bed (with an en-suite shower room and toilet) and one twin bed. There is a separate shower room and toilet and a fully equipped kitchen. These facilities are all on the ground floor. Upstairs is the main living and dining area with extensive views over the surrounding countryside.

The property also has a small heated swimming pool (8.5 x 2.5 metres) for use from May to September (weather permitting.)

The picturesque National Trust village of Lacock is a ten-minute walk either across the fields or down the lane from Spire View.

About Lacock

Lacock can lay claim to being a fine example of a quintessential English village. The houses are mostly stone-built, with some timber framed. The village and the Abbey were left to the National Trust by the Fox Talbot family in 1944.

The Abbey dates back to a fourteenth-century Augustinian Nunnery with a hidden cloister. There have been significant, but sympathetic, developments from the sixteenth century onwards until the site became the country house of the Sharington and Talbot families.

The village has no fewer than five public houses, several tea-rooms, a restaurant, a village shop as well as a number of craft and antique shops. It also houses the Museum of Photography which acquired the important Fenton Collection from the British Film Institute in 2016.

Lacock and the beginning of photography

Lacock can claim to be the place that witnessed the beginnings of photography. In 1841 Henry Fox Talbot took out a patent for the first photographic process using negatives and, thus, started the era of modern photography. An excellent display at the photographic museum shows how this was achieved and the site of many of the earliest photographs can be seen in the Abbey grounds and around the village.

Filming and Lacock

The village was given to the National Trust in 1944 and since then there has been little modern development. It has, therefore, become a favoured location for film and TV productions. These have included Pride and Prejudice, Cranford, Wolf Hall and Downton Abbey as well as the Harry Potter films and The Wolf Man.
