Peacefully located by a large Green (cottage on right in exterior picture), Cottage-on-the-Green is well away from busy traffic yet only a few minutes' walk from Calne's town centre. Grade II listed and tastefully modernised, it offers a very comfortable pied-a-terre from which to explore the many and diverse attractions in this part of Wiltshire.
Built in the 1800's, Cottage-on-the-Green stands next to the owner's house. It is completely self-contained and has its own entrance at the front of the cottage. The owners have completely refurbished it to a very good standard so as to ensure maximum comfort for guests during their stay.
