Lydeway, Pewsey Vale

Guide price

Bedrooms: 7
This former coaching inn, in part believed to date back some 400 years, is now a unique family home, with spacious and comfortable accommodation of over 3200ft.2

The house retains a wealth of period features including fireplaces, exposed beams and sash windows, but is now at an age where further modernisation may be required. In addition to the main house, there are three charming one bedroom holiday cottages and fabulous grounds with permission for up to twenty-four touring caravans. The property has been run as a caravan park for a number of years and combined with the holiday cottages, there is a huge opportunity for the next owners to generate a substantial income.

Outside, electric gates open on to a sweeping driveway with ample parking, leading to a double garage, carport and reception cabin. The mature gardens enjoy an excellent amount of privacy with colourful planted borders, lawns and various seating areas. An enclosed area off the garden conceals an old swimming pool that could be refurbished to enjoy once again. An existing detached shower block and laundry room completes the property.

The land comprises three paddocks which border open countryside and there are some wonderful views right across to Alton Barnes White Horse.

In all the property extends to about 2.8 acres


The property is in a great location with numerous heritage and tourism sites within easy driving distance, including Avebury, Stonehenge, the Kennet & Avon Canal and the city of Bath to name just a few.
