  • Bedrooms: 4
Standing in a hamlet in the Vale of Pewsey is this quintessential charming detached thatched cottage. The property enjoys pretty surroundings, a useful outbuilding and is set in 0.3 acres.

The cottage has not been on the market for over 30 years and during that time has been a wonderful family home which boasts much in the way of character in the form of exposed beams and brickwork and latched timber doors.

The ground floor has three main reception rooms which interlink and flow beautifully from one to another and includes a working fireplace in the living room. There is a kitchen with a number of useful cupboards, space to dine and it has a wonderful high ceiling.

The first floor has 3 main bedrooms with built in cupboards and a smaller 4th bedroom as well as two bathrooms, all set off a good sized landing.


The property is situated in the pretty hamlet of Horton, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the western edge of the Vale of Pewsey, which is ideal for many leisure activities including walking and riding. The area is well served with excellent schools including Marlborough College, St. Johns Academy, Dauntsey's, St. Mary's, Calne as well as Bishops Canning Primary School. Devizes (about 4 miles) and Marlborough (about 10 miles) provide a comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities. The main commercial centres of Swindon and Salisbury are within easy travelling distance and there are main line rail links at Pewsey (about 9 miles) to London Paddington (70 minutes) and motorway access via Junction 15 to the M4 or the A303/M3 to the south.


The cottage nestles comfortably into the plot which wraps around the property and extends to the rear where it adjoins paddock land. Within the grounds there are a number of established fruit trees including several cherry and apple. There is a useful detached garage with drive to the front.
