SITUATION: The property is situated in a elevated position on the southern edge of the attractive and popular village of Coombe Bissett which lies in the Ebble Valley about three miles southwest of Salisbury. Coombe Bissett has an excellent shop with post office, public house, church, village hall, primary school, recreation field and sports facilities, all of which cater for the active community. For the country enthusiasts the area has much to offer with lovely walking and riding on the surrounding downland and racing at nearby Salisbury Racecourse. The surrounding countryside is some of the most beautiful and picturesque within the Ebble Valley and the pretty unspoilt villages in this area are understandably popular.
The Cathedral City of Salisbury has an extensive shopping centre, theatre and mainline railway station with trains to London Waterloo with a very good additional service to the west country. The area is also serviced by excellent road links including the A303 trunk road which links with the M3 to London and A36 linking Southampton and Bath. Other local centres include Winchester and Bournemouth.
