Welcome to Lorne House
From a wonderful location in the middle of the Wiltshire Countryside, Lorne House offers guests a smart, sophisticated place to stay. With plenty of off-street parking for our guests and the recently refurbished interior Lorne House is a stylish Bed & Breakfast providing our visitors with an elegant charm and friendly welcome.
Only five miles from the fabulous city of Bath, the B&B is situated in a fantastic location to explore the city and the striking surrounding countryside. With its beautiful solid oak floors, wonderful soft furnishings and stunning furniture, Lorne House is a great place to spend a relaxing break or take a pleasant business trip.
Lorne House, locally famous as childhood home of the Rev. W J Awdry, author of Thomas the Tank Engine, is set in the village of Box which offers a great choice of pubs all of which are within walking distance. As your hosts we have a thorough knowledge of the local area and would be happy to give recommendations and make reservations on your behalf. In addition to the pubs in the village, Corsham is only a couple of miles away with more places to eat and drink and of course Bath is only a short ride away with great public transport links if you’re looking for a livelier evening.
In addition to accommodation, we provide a flexible conference facility, suitable for small seminars, training or board room type meetings.
The recent refurbishment of the rooms at Lorne House were carried out under the talented eye of interior designer, Julie Kent.
