The property

The Carriage House stands at the entrance to an impressive Grade II listed mansion in the small village of Worton, 6 miles from the attractive market town of Devizes.

Stylishly decorated and furnished, the accommodation comprises the major part of the former Carriage House, which has been carefully restored by its current owners.

There is ample space for a larger group but it is equally suitable for a smaller party.

Guests will have access to parts of the extensive grounds surrounding the main house, including use of the hard tennis court, the adjoining, secluded walled garden and former deer park beyond.

The main house and garden is of considerable architectural and historical interest.

Built in the early 20th century, it was reputedly used by Churchill, Eisenhower and Sikorsky for secret meetings during the 2nd World War.

Enter into a large and very attractive sitting room with an open fireplace and a spacious dining area at one end of the room.

There is also a modern fitted kitchen with integral appliances.

To finish off the downstairs there is a bedroom with a king size double bed in, and a shower room with a toilet and basin, which is accessible from the bedroom and the hallway.

Head to the upstairs of The Carriage House where the 3 remaining bedrooms are, one which consists of a zip and link bed offering the choice of a super-king size double or two single beds, a room with a 4 ft 6 double bed and finally a trundle bed, providing one or two singles as required.

Outside enjoy a cobbled courtyard garden area immediately in front of the house with garden furniture as well as access to parts of the grounds around the main house.

The house provides an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions of this fascinating part of Wiltshire.

The area is rich in prehistoric sites such as Avebury Stone Circle, Silbury Hill and Kennet Long Barrow and is also of interest for its industrial past ­Crofton Beam Engines and a working windmill at Wilton.

Narrow boat trips can be enjoyed on the nearby Kennet and Avon Canal and there is plenty of good walking on Salisbury Plain with immediate access  onto a public footpath from the house.
