The property

Royal Wootton Bassett 3 miles.

This immaculately-presented, energy-efficient timber lodge sits in a rural area in the grounds of the owner's home, alongside a second property, overlooking the owner’s stables.

The Nook provides cosy accommodation, ideal for couples as a relaxing holiday retreat in this beautiful part of the country.

Set across the ground floor, the accommodation has an open plan living area featuring a dining area, a well-equipped kitchen area, plus a comfy sitting area with double doors opening out to a small enclosed terrace.

The comfortable bedroom contains a king-size bed and boasts a fully-tiled, en-suite shower room.

This delightful lodge is located between the southern end of the Cotswolds and the northern edge of the Vale of Pewsey, a short distance from the historic market town of Royal Wootton Bassett, and is an ideal base for exploring the area on foot, by bicycle or car.

The Wiltshire Downs cycle path passes the door and there are many wonderful walking routes in the immediate area, as well as those a little further afield along the Wessex Ridgeway Trail.

There are so many fascinating places to visit nearby; Lydiard Country Park, Avebury Stone Circle, Silbury Hill, The Wiltshire White Horse carvings, Cotswold Water Park, the Kennet and Avon Canal and much more.

For retail therapy, why not spend the day in the designer outlet village at Swindon, or peruse the independent shops in Marlborough or those in the vibrant cities of Oxford or Bath?

At the close of a sunny day, you can barbecue on the terrace whilst watching the resident ponies, ducks and chickens potter around, or take a night off from cooking and visit the pub or one of the many takeaways in nearby Lynham.

If you wish to take your four legged friend with you, there are even two pet-friendly pubs three miles away.

A comfortable holiday base for exploring the Wessex countryside; with easy access to many delightful towns and villages, this is the perfect place for couples planning to explore the area.

About the location

ROYAL WOOTTON BASSETT

Swindon 6.7 miles; Malmesbury 10.7 miles; Bath 31 miles.

Situated at the southern end of the Cotswold Hills, in rural northern Wiltshire and close to the border with Gloucestershire, the friendly market town of Royal Wootton Bassett can be found. The town was granted Royal patronage in 2011, due to the part it played in the repatriation of military personnel who sadly lost their lives serving their country overseas. It boasts a weekly market and offers a good selection of local shops and inns, providing an ideal touring base from which to explore the attractions of Wiltshire and beyond. The town is close to the historic Lydiard Park, Bowood and Longleat, with the ancient sites of Avebury and Stonehenge nearby. The coastal resorts of Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea are just over an hour's drive for anyone wanting to dip their toes in the sea. Visit the charming town of Malmesbury and the Cotswold Water Park and with the historic cities of Bath, Oxford and Salisbury all easily accessible, this area really makes an interesting touring centre at any time of the year.
