The property

A charming, detached, early Victorian former stable and coach house adjacent to the owner’s home, within the attractive village of West Grimstead, Wiltshire.

This cosy cottage is ideal for a couple or young family, set in a picturesque part of the country to be enjoyed at any time of the year.

The spacious fitted kitchen incorporates a pleasant dining area where you can enjoy your meals sitting on pews from the local church, whilst warming yourselves in front of the woodburner.

A door leads through to the cosy sitting room, where the corner sofa provides you with a comfy place to relax whilst you enjoy your favourite TV programmes.

A further door leads you into the ground floor shower room.

The attractive feature spiral staircase takes you straight up into an amazing beamed eaves bedroom, (mind your head!) which is made up of two distinct parts, with a double bed on one side and twin on the other, a most unusual and impressive place to sleep!

Outside this delightful cottage is a private patio garden with furniture where you can relax with a refreshing drink, whilst planning your next day’s activities.

There are lovely walks locally, but a trip to the nearby stunning city of Salisbury is a must.

Tour the fabulous cathedral, then enjoy a meal at one of the numerous restaurants, enjoy a bit of retail therapy in the vibrant shopping centre and finish the day by going to a play at the renowned Salisbury Playhouse.

Alternatively, visit the picturesque New Forest National Park, hire a bike and silently cycle through the forest glades where you will see wild ponies and often deer.

You really are spoilt for choice, with so much to see and do, all within an easy drive from this charming cottage.

A short drive takes you to the National Trust's Pepperbox Hill, from where there are magnificent views towards Salisbury and plenty of scenic walks. A day out in ancient Salisbury is not to be missed, where a visit to the majestic cathedral is a must, boasting Europe’s highest cathedral spire. Alternatively, stroll through the wonderful Cathedral Close which boasts many picturesque ancient buildings, then take in the vibrant shopping centre and twice weekly market, or treat yourselves to a meal at one of the town’s many restaurants. Within easy reach is the New Forest National Park, home of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, and well-known for its swathes of woodland, purple heather and where wild ponies and cattle freely roam. With Stonehenge, the attractive Hampshire town of Romsey, famous for the 'Broadlands' house and estate belonging to the Mountbatten family, both an easy drive away, there is so much on offer within easy reach of this pretty Wiltshire village.
