The Bottom, Urchfont

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A picture postcard period home presented in show home condition, currently run as a successful Air BnB and available as either a 'turn key' business opportunity or as a splendid family home ready to move straight into. Offered with no onward chain.

Bigger than it first appears 'Little Thatch' is a most attractive detached cottage with a superb extension to the rear. The well balanced accommodation is presented in excellent order with oak doors throughout and features a stylish updated kitchen to the rear with solid granite worktops and a range of integrated appliances. The kitchen is open plan to a breakfast area with French doors out to the delightful garden. There is also a modern cloakroom. The sitting room to the front, like the kitchen/breakfast room, has engineered oak flooring, and an impressive Inglenook fireplace with a clean and efficient electric 'log effect' stove. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms complemented by a stylish high spec modern bathroom. Further benefits include double glazing and an air source heat pump for heating. Outside, there is allocated off road parking for 1 car and other visitor spaces in the lane opposite the house as well as an enclosed private garden to the rear, divided into a patio sun terrace, lawned area, raised seating area with seasonal plants, a large shed/workshop and an attractively planted tiered garden beyond.

The cottage has been run as a very successful Air BnB for the last 3 years with over 11% Yield with prices from £125 per night (high season) to £115 per night (low seasons). The current owners are happy to provide more details to any seriously interested parties wishing to buy and then continue the business. Little Thatch is also available to purchase completely furnished if one so wished (price then TBC).


Urchfont has a good range of facilities for a village of its size including a Community Shop, a vibrant Village Hall, a Public House, thriving Primary School and Church together with doctors' (part time) surgery. Bus services connect the village to adjoining communities and Urchfont has a community bus which travels into Devizes daily and makes trips further afield to towns up to 80 miles away. It can also be hired for use by members of the community. There are two village Greens and a duck pond. On the first weekend in May there is a 3 day scarecrow festival which attracts many thousands of visitors and raises about £20,000 p.a for mainly local causes.
