  • “This is an excellent base for exploring a beautiful and interesting part of the country.”

    If you like history or archaeology, it's a wonderful area, as Stonehenge, Avebury, Silbury Hill and other ancient monuments are all within easy distance. There's also lots of fascinating industrial history nearby, including the Caen Hill Locks and the Crofton Pumping Station on the Kennet & Avon Canal, and the Great Western Railway museum in Swindon - and of course the Roman / Georgian city of Bath is always worth a visit. Plenty to do and see, whatever the weather.

The property

A comfortable single-storey, timber-clad detached barn conversion, one of two on site, and situated in the picturesque Wiltshire village of Urchfont, five miles from Devizes.

This cosy cottage provides couples with a superb romantic retreat.

The characterful open-plan living area boasts a wealth of exposed beams with a charming sitting and dining area leading into a small yet well-equipped kitchen.

The beamed double bedroom is off the living area and completing the accommodation is a shower room.

To the rear there is a private patio with a shared lawned area beyond, a perfect place to relax whilst planning the day's adventures.

Take the short stroll from this Wiltshire holiday home around the village where you can feed the ducks on the pond, shop in the friendly community store or sample real ale in the pub.

Alternatively, take one of the well-signed footpaths which criss-cross the surrounding countryside.

Nearby, the beautifully restored Kennet and Avon Canal winds its way through the Vale of Pewsey towards Devizes before it drops down to the magnificent Caen Hill flight of locks, one of the highest in the country.

Within driving distance from your Urchfont holiday home you can marvel at ancient Stonehenge, the regal cities of Bath and Salisbury, or the magnificent house, gardens and safari park at Longleat.

This Urchfont cottage offers couples a delightfully snug holiday hideaway in a most fascinating and interesting part of the country.

About the location

URCHFONT

Devizes 5 miles.

The picturesque Wiltshire village of Urchfont lies at the south west end of the Vale of Pewsey, north of the Salisbury Plain, five miles from the historic market town of Devizes. Urchfont is dominated by an attractive pond, where you will be greeted by all kinds of water fowl, plus a lively and well-stocked community run shop and a pub serving real ales and good food can also be found in the village, and an annual scarecrow festival, with up to 50 scarecrows on display is held in early May. The local area is rich in ancient history with the stone circles of Stonehenge and Avebury both an easy drive, or take a trip through the nearby Vale of Pewsey, dotted with pretty villages and boasting two white horses carved into the chalk down land. The market town of Devizes is famous for its brewery and the Kennet and Avon canal. A boat trip along the canal is a must, from where you can marvel at the Caen Hill staircase of locks, one of the largest in the country. The area has so much to offer visitors at any time of the year.
