The property

Warminster 3.3 miles.

Nestled within the landscaped grounds of the owner's beautiful, thatched home rests this delightful garage conversion, The Old House Cottage.

Situated in a tranquil setting within the scenic landscape of Cranborne Chase, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Old House Cottage is perfectly positioned to explore the delights of Wiltshire.

Follow the private sweeping driveway and park up at the foot of this lovely dwelling before stepping over the threshold and entering into a charming hallway, providing handy storage to house any walking gear and muddy boots away from the main living areas.

Venture further into the property and enter into the open-plan living space, boasting a snug seating area gathered in front of the television, enticing you to kick off your shoes and unwind with a cup of tea as you enjoy a leisurely seat on the sofa.

Be charmed by the amply-equipped kitchen, housing all of the modern amenities necessary to assist with an enjoyable self-catering experience, including a handy washing machine to freshen up your wardrobe, and a dishwasher so there's no time wasted doing the washing up.

Gather your loved ones together around the dining table to serve your culinary delights, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, step outside and dine alfresco in the peaceful garden, soaking in the setting of the tranquil greenery as you toast a glass of fizz to a marvellous holiday.

As the evening grows darker, head back indoors and prepare for bed with an invigorating rinse in the contemporary shower room, nestled on the ground-floor for your convenience, or if you'd prefer, indulge in a soak amongst the bubbles as you escape into the pages of a captivating book in the family bathroom.

Climb the impressive oak staircase to the first-floor where you'll find two thoughtfully laid-out bedrooms, both boasting a sumptuous double bed nestled underneath the sloped ceiling, providing an intimate setting to rest your eyes ahead of a new day.

Take a break from doing the cooking and treat your loved ones to a delicious home cooked meal at one of the nearby pubs, with the choice between The Woolpack, The Angel, The Dove Inn The Bath Arms and the Bradley Hare to name a few, each quintessentially English and offering a warm and welcoming setting to enjoy a refreshing drink following a day of exploring.

Spend a fun-filled day out visiting Longleat and enjoy the quirky experience of the drive-thru safari park, where you'll come face to face with wild animals, including lions, monkeys and elephants; marvel at the Elizabethan architecture and manicured grounds of Longleat House, dating back to 1580, or tackle the challenging two-mile hedge maze.

Lace up your walking boots and explore 2,500 acres of unspoilt countryside with a visit to Stourhead, maintained by the National Trust, where a trail of walking routes takes you past fascinating landmarks and wildlife, or discover the collection of classical architecture and exotic and endangered species of trees in the world-renowned landscaped gardens.

There's plenty more to see and do, with Bruton and Frome within easy reach.

Bruton is home to The Newt Hotel and Spa with some fantastic gardens to enjoy as well as The Hauser and Wirth Art gallery to enjoy.

Also there is the historical city of Bath, home to The Roman Baths, The Jane Austen Centre and a handful of fascinating museums.

Whether you're looking for a rural retreat or a countryside adventure, choose The Old House Cottage.

The delightful Wiltshire market town of Warminster can be found to the south west of Salisbury Plain, at the head of the lush Wylye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Well known for its military connections, the old charm of the town centre has been preserved, where you can still find quaint houses and inns built from the local Warminster stone. Nearby there are lovely walks in abundance, whilst no visit to this area would be complete without exploring the stunning house, gardens and safari park at Longleat. Warminster boasts three supermarkets, many restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, several antique shops, a museum, a theatre, a magnificent park with a lake, skatepark, tennis courts and a nature reserve. The award-winning Warminster Maltings who still malt barley the traditional way for the beer industry, do occasional tours for visitors and cream teas in Summer.

This lovely area is full of surprises, providing a great base for your excursions.
