Further details indoors

Entrance into a large, attractive open plan living room, open to roof height, comprising a sitting area with log burner, dining area and well equipped fitted kitchen with electric, "Everhot" Aga style cooker. 2 bedrooms - one twin plus additional sleeping area for 2 children, access being via a small, removable 'apple' ladder. Interconnecting double bedroom with brass & iron bed and door to a secluded garden terrace. Bathroom/w.c. adjoining the twin bedroom with roll top bath & separate shower cubicle. Utility room.

Further details outdoors

Secluded garden areas by the living room and double bedroom (barbecue provided) and shared use of other parts of the large garden, including a small hut by the river, which is a site of special scientific interest and a haven for wildlife. In the wood over the river the owners keep Oxford Sandy and Blacks rare breed pigs (May to September) - a delight for children.


The location offers visitors a very central touring base, with easy access to the A303 (1 ½ miles away), making London 1 ½ - 2 hours' drive. Wiltshire's most famous pre-historic sites, Stonehenge and Avebury, the cathedral city of Salisbury and the World Heritage city of Bath are all within easy driving distance.

Between Shrewton and Salisbury to the south, a string of pretty villages nestle in the picturesque Wylye and Woodford valleys. There are many attractive cottages of stone, flint and chalk, traditional country pubs and good walking in the water meadows and on the chalk downland ridges above. For keen golfers there is an excellent course at High Post, near Amesbury. The village of Shrewton itself has local shops and several pubs.
