Tucked behind a row of period houses on a quiet cul-de-sac, with the front door totally hidden, this Grade II* listed cottage has been carefully renovated using local artisans, and beautifully furnished throughout. You’ll be comfortable and calm here in minutes, surrounded by exposed Cotswold stone walls and beams, handmade pottery and throws, and vases of wildflowers on every floor.
Find eggs, milk, bread and more – local, delicious and mostly organic – in the characterful, well-equipped kitchen. Upstairs is a bathroom filled with Bramley products, and a sitting room with tasteful art, TV, books and magazines. Your restful bedroom is above, under a traditional mansard roof.
Walk into town, around the local park, along the river Avon or to the National Trust village of Lacock. Cycle to the ancient stone circle of Avebury, mainly off-road. The Gladstone Arms, The Three Crowns and plenty of restaurants are a stroll. Stonehenge is a 45-minute drive, and the largest artificial prehistoric mound in Europe at Silbury Hill, is just 20 minutes.
