Description from owner
Sorry, only one-week lets or longer through the Summer. Available for corporate and long lets. The Carthouse has been recently converted into a 3-bedroom holiday home. Downstairs it has an open-plan living, dining, kitchen area plus a downstairs double/twin (beds can be linked) bedroom, bathroom (shower, loo, sink) and a utility room. The living area has 3 sets of doors that can open out onto the patio. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, the larger one has a double bed, the smaller is either double or twin (beds can be linked). There is a bathroom upstairs with bath/shower, loo and sink. The double cantilever oak stairs are lit by a crystal chandelier and reach each bedroom via a bridge across the living space below. Outside, the front is laid to grass and a large gravel driveway. To the side is a lawn, and to the rear is a large patio with terraced lawns looking out onto fields. There is a small summerhouse, garden furniture, BBQ and a clothes line. The nearby pub - the Hatchett Inn (SP11

Outside, the front is laid to grass and a large gravel driveway. To the side is a lawn, and to the rear is a large patio with terraced lawns looking out onto fields. There is a small summerhouse, garden furniture, BBQ and a clothes line. The nearby pub - the Hatchett Inn (SP11 9DX) - is fantastic. Equally, the nearby woods are quiet and secluded and (in season - around Easter) the bluebells are amongst the best in England. The Chute Causeway is a mile or so above the Carhouse (through the woods) and is an ancient Roman road between Cirencester and Winchester. Stonehenge is 30 minutes away, and Salisbury and Winchester with their magnificent cathedrals are each about 40 minutes distant by car. Trains from Andover (10 minutes away) take 1 hour 10 minutes to get to London.
The Carthouse is ideal for well-behaved dogs - indeed the area is perfect for dogs and dog walking. The stone floor is easy-clean and the utility room has a back door to allow muddy hounds to be sorted out before letting them in to the kitchen. The utility room also makes a very good dog sleeping area. Dogs are not allowed upstairs.
Further details indoors
The Carthouse is furnished to a very high standard. The beds are all new, and the kitchen, bathrooms and utility room are fully equipped. The floor downstairs is travertine throughout with underfloor heating. There are oak beams and posts exposed within the living area and the full length windows and french doors are all oak. There are 2 sets of high quality linen and towels. We live close by and can sort queries face-to-face.
Further details outdoors
There is parking for 3 cars at the front.
The England region
The Carhouse is situated in Chute Cadley in the eastern-most reaches of Wiltshire. This is part of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is close to ancient sites such as Avebury, Silbury Hill, Salisbury Plain, and Stonehenge. It is also close to Winchester and Salisbury to the south, and to the picturesque towns of Marlborough and Hungerford to the north. Savernake Forest lies between Chute and Marlborogh, and along with nearby Collingbourne Woods is great for a picnic or cycle riding. Finally, the Kennet and Avon canal passes east-west a few miles north of the Carthouse.
The Chutes (Lower Chute, Upper Chute, Chute Cadley, Chute Forest and Chute Standen) comprise a very quiet, secluded collection of small (and very small) villages between Andover to the south and Hungerford to the north. There are 3 great pubs, the Hatchett Inn at Lower Chute, the Lion at Clanville, and the Cricketers Inn at nearby Tangley. The Chute Fete takes place on the 3rd Saturday of June and is well worth attending. See 'www.thechutes.org.uk' - not always very up-to-date, but useful to get a flavour of the community!

- Very Good
The Carthouse is a brilliant holiday rental. All our individual and group needs were met. The property is warm, welcoming and accessible. The modern decor and equipment more than made our stay relaxed and very comfortable.Beautiful location which has many places to visit so close by. The owners are exceptional as they were attentive to detail without being intrusive.
Thank you very much. Do come again if you can.
“What a fantastic place to stay”
Stayed here with my wife whilst working in the area. We had several family members visit us during our stay and everyone said what a great place it was. Fantastic for walking the dog in the nearby fields and woods. Great village pub with others only short drives away. All mod cons and a very high standard finish. Owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Would certainly return.
“The Carthouse is a 5* property ideal for a relaxing break”
We stayed at the courthouse for a weekend in March. It was a wonderful place to stay. The property is five-star. The quality of the kitchen, bathroom etc are superb. Would definitely recommend a weekend break for anyone staying at the Carthouse lovely location, local pub is really good & the property is metres away from woods which are ideal for walking dogs and the owners were very helpful.
“A beautiful location and fantastic accomodation”
A group of us stayed in the Carthouse over New Year and couldn't have been more pleased with our accomodation. The pictures really don't do it justice - luxurious, with all the mod cons and a beautifully quiet location. The owner couldn't have been more friendly, amenable and accomodating. With some great pubs in the area and some very friendly locals, we would thoroughly recommend the location and in particular, the wonderful Carthouse.
