  • Bedrooms: 4
Originally an 18th century 'squatters cottage' and over time a row of the 3 farm workers cottages; this attractive period cottage has more recently been transformed into an appealing family home set in generous gardens.

This enchanting home has an array of character features which includes an impressive Tudor beam in the kitchen where there is an Inglenook with bread oven. Exposed timbers and brickwork along with a heritage grey palette of colour give this wonderful property a striking appeal. The ground floor enjoys a dual aspect open plan sitting room with an attractive wood burner down one end and dining area at the other, from which doors lead out to the garden. The kitchen has a wonderful Inglenook fireplace and is fitted with bespoke hand built units and extends into a scullery where there is a butlers sink and storage shelving. From here the cottage continues into utility area/boot room where there is a door to the outside and also to a downstairs shower room complete with WC.

The first floor boasts a beautifully quirky triple aspect master bedroom with a wall of built in wardrobes. The second bedroom has a large window overlooking the garden and enjoys an adjoining fourth bedroom perfect as a nursery or office. There is a third bedroom and a bathroom with free standing roll top bath and a separate WC finishes the accommodation. All these factors, combined with the stylish finish, character features and pretty location make this a superb country retreat.


Manningford Bruce is a charming village which lies 2½ miles from the small market town of Pewsey which offers a good range of services for day-to-day needs together with a station with services to London Paddington. The larger market town of Marlborough (about 7 miles) offers a wide range of facilities and the larger centres of Salisbury, Andover, Newbury and Swindon are within easy striking distance. The M4 motorway lies to the north and the A303 (M3) to the south. The village itself offers a church, village hall and a wealth of country walks and is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


The cottage is set behind a picket fence with drive to the side which wraps around to the rear and leads to a detached double garage with storage over. The main garden is laid to lawn and adjoins paddock land to the rear which it overlooks. A private sun terrace can be found at the back of the cottage to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings.
