The property

Located in the heart of a small village a stone's throw from the Stonehenge World Heritage site, Kent Cottage is a brick built building that was once the local village shop.

On a corner location, it is semi-detached with the owner's property next door.

Set over two floors, this quaint and cosy property would ideally suit a family with small children, or a couple looking to explore the wonders of the Salisbury and Amesbury area.

Entering through the front door, which is uniquely set on the corner of the building, there's a pretty living room area with a really comfortable sofa, leading through to the spacious and airy kitchen diner, which has been fitted out to a high specification.

The back door of the property leads out to the garden, which is shared with the owner.

There's a further small study with sofa bed on the ground floor with its own en-suite cloakroom.

Upstairs you'll find the spacious master bedroom with its open plan en-suite.

There's a bath tub with a shower and a wash basin.

There's a pretty view from the window here out over the cottage garden and the rooftops of the village beyond.

The garden is shared with the property owner and it's a delightful little green oasis in the heart of the village.

It's an ideal place for children to play and for adults to enjoy alfresco dining and a quiet glass of wine or a local beer after a hectic day sightseeing in this most magical part of the world.

The location couldn't be more convenient.

When you step out of the front door you're in the heart of the village, which means there are shops almost on the doorstep.

A few miles away there are pubs and restaurants and then there's the beautiful town of Salisbury with its shops, restaurants, cafes and of course the cathedral, which boasts the tallest spire in the UK.

This area is world famous for its mysterious standing stones and there are some incredible walks and bike rides through the gentle rolling hills of the Salisbury Plain.

The Kennet and Avon canal is the place to head to if you like messing about in boats.

If you're more of a thrill seeker, the nearby parachute school is the place to learn to jump and skydive.

For birdwatchers there's the opportunity to spot the county's official bird, the Great Bustard, or take a trip to the 'lost' village of Imber and find out more about World War II.

If history is your thing, then Salisbury Cathedral has the best preserved copy of the Magna Carta in the country.

Whether you're a daredevil, a nature lover, fascinated by ancient history or simply fancy a taste of traditional English village life, then Kent Cottage is the ideal location to explore some of Britain's most fascinating countryside.

About the location

NETHERAVON

Amesbury 4 miles; Stonehenge 8.3 miles; Salisbury 13.2 miles.

Netheravon is a village on the River Avon and about 4 miles north of the town of Amesbury in Wiltshire, South West England and is within Salisbury Plain. The village has a thriving School, Shop, Post Office, and not forgetting Stonehenge Ales, which is a well-known micro-brewery. Amesbury is well worth a visit, being an attractive town sitting on the River Avon. There are many independent shops, restaurants and inns to visit with it being home to Stonehenge. Stonehenge is the closest attraction to Amesbury and the 2 mile walk across the historic landscape is both invigorating and interesting. Salisbury is well worth a visit, being the jewel in Wiltshire's crown. The city offers historic streets with charming half-timbered buildings, traditional pubs, characterful shops and a twice-weekly market. Should you wish to explore further afield a short distance will take you to the New Forest National Park, and the Hampshire and Dorset coasts. There’s so much to see and do in this area, you will surely be spoilt for choice.
