The property

A superb, detached, single-storey barn conversion, with ramped access, adjacent to the farmyard on the owner's organic farm, on the edge of Upper Seagry, in the lush countryside of North Wiltshire, only 6 miles from the ancient town of Malmesbury.

This cottage is perfect for a family or group of friends looking to get away from it all and enjoy the surrounding countryside.

The property boasts character features such as high vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and staddle stones set into the wall.

Tastefully decorated throughout, there is a spacious open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen with everything you need to prepare a home-cooked meal for the whole group to enjoy in the dining area.

You can then retire to the comfortable sitting area and make plans for the following day while enjoying the warmth of the electric fire.

Two bedrooms including a king-size master bedroom with an en-suite with a relaxing Jacuzzi bath complete the accommodation.

About the location

UPPER SEAGRY

Chippenham 5 miles; Malmesbury 6 miles.

The small North Wiltshire village of Upper Seagry is found in superb countryside only five miles north of the bustling market town of Chippenham, and six miles from the ancient town of Malmesbury. Close to the southern end of The Cotswolds, this rural location provides a great base from which to explore this fascinating area. There are ample footpaths and bridleways nearby, a visit to Malmesbury - with its 12th century Benedictine Abbey - is a must, whilst a trip to the Cotswold Water Park is a real treat. Westobirt Arboretum, with its extensive collection of trees and shrubs is not to be missed. Within an easy drive can be found the picturesque village of Castle Combe, also well known for its car racing track, and the quaint National Trust village of Lacock, used as the setting for the BBC TV serial Cranford. The impressive Roman city of Bath, Bowood House, and the ancient stone circle at Avebury are also easily accessible. This really is an excellent base for a relaxing and interesting break at any time of the year.
