The property

A most unusual and quirky, compact single-storey barn conversion, which dates back 150 years and is tucked away in Neston, just over a mile from Corsham and nine miles from Bath.

This lovely little detached cottage is set in the owner’s pretty garden and enjoys its own private access.

Inside, the snug sitting room radiates charm with its characterful exposed stone walls, flagstone flooring and warming woodburning stove, providing a great place to snuggle up after your day exploring.

Also on the ground floor are a pretty bedroom, a bijou kitchen and a shower room, which all come together to provide a really comfy and characterful, romantic holiday base.

When the weather brightens up you can open the stable door, take a step outside and enjoy a drink on the little gravelled patio area.

Locally, there are plenty of bridle paths to explore, with a stop off at the village inn to refuel!

Take the short drive into the nearby market town of Corsham, where you have a good range of shops and eateries.

Alternatively, a trip to the cosmopolitan city of Bath with its Roman Baths, abbey, vibrant shopping centre, theatre and excellent range of restaurants is not to be missed.

This quaint little cottage offers couples a peaceful break from the hustle and bustle of modern day life.

About the location

NESTON

Corsham 1.5 miles; Chippenham 7 miles; Bath 9 miles.

The picturesque Wiltshire hamlet of Neston, named after its 18th century Neston Park House and estate, sits between the regal city of Bath to the west and the historic market town of Chippenham to the east. Corsham offers a vibrant weekly market, and many of its renowned Grade ll listed limestone buildings, which have been used as filming locations for Harry Potter and Poldark, now house independent shops, inns and restaurants. Locally, Corsham Court is well worth a visit, where you can admire the impressive art collection and scenic parkland designed by Capability Brown where resident peacocks freely roam. Easily accessible is the stunning city of Bath, where there’s so much on offer for all tastes, from the striking architecture of the Georgian terraces to the celebrated Roman Baths and wonderful abbey, and with ample opportunities to eat out or indulge in a bit of retail therapy, you really are spoilt for choice. Alternatively, take the short drive to the 13th century village of Lacock, or to Castle Combe, once named England’s prettiest village!
