The Property

It doesn't get much better than this for those looking for a traditional historic thatched cottage. The Thatched Cottage is offered to the market for the first time since the 1980 s, a true testament to the property and the village surrounding it. The front door can be found on the North-East side of the house, where you will come into the hallway, with a dining room to the right and sitting room to the left. Both the dining and sitting room have beautiful exposed brick inglenook fireplaces with a gas fire (untested) in the sitting room.

From the driveway off Morgans Lane, and through the garden gate, the pathway leads to the back door, which is currently being used as the main entrance. The back door leads into a hall area leading on to the kitchen, downstairs cloakroom, the dining room and access to the first floor. The kitchen is well appointed and has feature exposed brick work as well as plenty of above and below counter storage.

Upstairs are the three double bedrooms, and a decent sized family bathroom. The main bedroom has it s own sink and access to some attic storage space.

Exposed wooden beams are found throughout The Thatched Cottage, particularly downstairs. And what is of note is the heights of the rooms which are all much higher than one might expect for a Grade II Listed Cottage, a very pleasant surprise!


The house and its plot are a wonderful example of a period Wiltshire thatched cottage and offer an outstanding chance to experience part modernised period living. The house sits in the middle of two stunning gardens both of which are laid mainly to lawn with well maintained hedges, well established trees, seasonal flowerbeds. The stunning feature Grade II Listed Garage is of particular note and offers a new owner the opportunity to restore/update.

An old thatched wall running along the roadside boundary protects the garden and coupled with the mature hedges and trees provides for a high degree of privacy.
