Picturesque cottage in the heart of the village

A beautiful detached cottage in the heart of a village: Kings Cottage oozes character and charm – on entering the property, you feel as if you are being taken back in time.

The front door enters straight into a kitchen / breakfast room. This is fully fitted with floor and wall mounted units and the low ceilings and thick walls brings the 'cottage feel' to life.

There is a good-sized living room to the left, featuring exposed stone walls, beams and a large log burner which heats the property beautifully in the winter months. Although there is ample room for a three piece suite, it has a truly cosy and warm feel. A bathroom with separate shower completes this floor.

Upstairs, the homely and quaint decor continues. The master bedroom is carved into by the chimney stack and has slightly sloped ceilings and deeply recessed windows and benefits from an array of fitted wardrobes. On the other side of the landing sits another double bedroom.

Outside the property is a long mature garden which is reached by shared access, with a fully powered office / summer house at the end. The garden currently houses chickens, ducks and a number of other animals - everything is set up and ready to start the good life.

Watchfield has a charming village centre with a church, village hall and public house, and a small shopping centre with a public house and a restaurant near the roundabout with the A420. The Defence Academy of the United Kingdom provides post-graduate level education for UK and overseas military personnel. Many students and staff live in the village and play an active part in community life. The excellent village primary school has children from several different countries, which makes for an interesting learning environment.

Together, Watchfield and Shrivenham make one of the larger village areas within the Vale of the White Horse and are located to the north east of Swindon (circa 5 miles) and to the south west of the market town of Faringdon (circa 5 miles). A bypass built in 1984 ensures that the rural atmosphere of both villages is preserved. Shrivenham also has an extremely active community. There is a lovely tree-lined high street with shops, restaurants, public houses, a doctors' surgery, village primary school and an impressive church, parts of which date back to the 11th Century. There is also a golf course.

Both villages are ideally located for access to the M4 at Swindon and the A420 leading to Oxford and beyond. There is a frequent bus service from Swindon to Oxford and back.
