Two / Three Bedrooms, Two Bathrooms

Garage and Parking Area

Stunning Gardens and Wooded Grounds Adjoining The Kennet and Avon Canal

 A charming two/three bedroom former lock keepers cottage set in beautiful gardens and wooded grounds in a secluded location adjacent to the Kennet and Avon Canal.

In the agents opinion the property offers a wonderful rural lifestyle in a stunning setting surrounded by farmland and woodland. There are no immediate near neighbours yet it is only four miles into Marlborough town centre and a very pleasant walk along the canal tow path takes you to Wootton Rivers where there is a popular pub The Royal Oak.

Although extremely rural and secluded, the property is also very accessible as the main A346 road links to the M4 motorway at Swindon and there are mainline stations in both Pewsey and Great Bedwyn.
