The village is readily accessible to Swindon 14.5 miles distant and Junction 17 of the M4 motorway, about 6 miles south, provides access to the area's major employment centres. Kemble station is 8.5 miles distant for those needing to commute to London and there is easy road access to Cirencester, king of the Cotswolds, the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum and cultural activities in Cheltenham and Bath.

The Property

Built in the 1800's and extended in 2000, this charming detached cottage lies in a sought after location on the edge of the village. The current owners purchased just over three years ago and have since replaced all the windows and external doors, and refitted the kitchen, cloakroom and the bathroom, all with good quality fittings. There is oak flooring in the sitting room and dining area with tiles in the hall and kitchen. The first floor has oak internal doors and the garden has been landscaped, including replacing the garden fence.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into the dual aspect sitting room which has a fireplace with new log burning stove. Beyond is the dining room which has a large understair cupboard providing valuable storage. A door leads to the inner hall, with stairs off to the first floor and access to the cloakroom. The kitchen at the rear is south and east facing and has a range of units including a Rangemaster electric oven with extractor over. There is plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine, plus an external stable door. On the first floor the landing is split level with another good storage cupboard. Both bedrooms are doubles, have built-in wardrobes and dual aspect windows. The large family bathroom has a free standing roll top bath, separate shower and a cupboard housing the pressurised hot water cylinder. There are open country views to the rear.


There is parking for two cars on the roadside, adjacent to the cottage. A wrought iron gate leads down the side to an area enclosed with a stone wall and a further gate which has a well.
