The library, which features bespoke shelving and cupboards, is also reached from here. The kitchen/breakfast room has a good range of wood units with integrated appliances, an island which houses a large 5 ring calor gas range and a direct access out to the terrace.

Compton Chamberlayne lies in the heart of the Nadder Valley, forming part of Wiltshire's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The countryside is particularly beautiful with rolling chalk downland and attractive villages. There are great walks and rides in the picturesque valley.

The area is particularly well served for schools with the two Grammar schools in Salisbury. There is also a variety of local private schools including Chafyn Grove, Salisbury Cathedral School, Godolphin, St Mary's Shaftesbury and Dauntsey's.
