The property

This fabulous, four-bedroom, detached 1740s cottage is tucked away into the village of Pewsey, in the heart of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Wiltshire.

A pretty yet characterful retreat for seven people, families and friends will truly feel a part of this charm-filled holiday home and all it has to offer.

Accessorised with pure attention to detail, this enchanting hideaway presents itself over three floors, with a four poster bedroom situated on the ground floor, brought to life by wardrobes, a dressing table, and lamps which give off a warm glow.

Two doubles are located on the first floor equally as delightful, lovingly put together with charming furnishings and unique decor, with steep steps leading you up to the twin bedroom, leaving you spoilt for choice when it comes to a good night's sleep.

Views welcome in the peaceful outdoors.

Along the corridor on the lower level, the cottage reveals a lounge with an electric woodburner effect fire, and a dining room which is set up for seven people.

You will look forward to cosying up here come evening, and beginning your mornings in the kitchen with lovely views of the garden forming a pleasant backdrop.

Alternatively the snug is a cosy spot to gather, housing comfy seating and doors opening out to a patio area with furniture.

There is also a lovely rear garden laid to lawn with two seating areas, fully enclosed and perfect for children and pets.

Why not take a peaceful walk along the canal or have a picnic watching the narrow boats go by.

Just across the road on the edge of the canal is The Waterfront Bar and Bistro offering fantastic food and a view of the canal boats, hosting an array of music and quiz nights.

If a walking holiday is what you're after, you will be surrounded with places to walk and cycle with the canal on your doorstep, cycling is very popular in Pewsey with many cycle routes and daily cycles taking place surrounding the area of Pewsey, the Cotswolds and the Cranbourne Chase AONB, which is also easily accessible by car.

The World Heritage sites of Stonehenge and Avebury Stone Circle are both within a thirty minute drive.

The property is 1 mile to the centre of Pewsey, with it's own heritage centre and a train station offering access to some of Wiltshire's gems and is only an hour's train ride away from London.

An extra special retreat in a precious part of Wiltshire.
