This beautiful cottage is a listed building which retains many of its original features. Conservation is a priority and we use local craftsmen using traditional methods and materials to renovate this unique property.
It is set in the Lockeridge Dene (a dry valley), and is surrounded by fields full of Sarcen stones. In pre-historic times some of these stones were dragged 3 miles to make World Heritage Site, Avebury Stone Circle.
There are many other Neolithic sites to see in the area; West Kennet Long Barrow and Silbury Hill are among the best known locally. Stonehenge is about 25 miles away and an easy drive.
There is a bluebell woods just up the hill which is amazing in late spring, but beautiful anytime of the year. We are on the North Wessex Downs so it's great walking country. There is the National Cycle Route 45 a mile away, as well as good off road cycling. If you're not feeling energetic the cottage is very cosy and a great place to sleep, relax and rejuvenate. It has a beautiful English country garden with an guest area for you too use.
Marlborough is our nearest town about 3.5 miles away. It is a market town with a Waitrose and Tesco supermarket as well as great shops and restaurants including Rick Stein's Fish Restaurant, Indian and Italian restaurants. More locally there is the village pub which serves good food, or the Bell at Overton which is more of a gastro pub, and highly recommended.
Marlborough hosts a music festivals in late July. There is also the Marlborough Summer School in July and August with a vast array of courses and Children's Activities.
