This delightful cottage is set in the grounds of the owner's cottage in a rural location near the canal side village of Great Bedwyn on the Kennet and Avon Canal. The cottage has been lovingly and imaginatively converted to create holiday accommodation of a very high standard in beautiful Wiltshire countryside. On the ground floor are a superb fitted kitchen and an impressive sunny conservatory sitting and dining room with views across the owner’s three-acre paddock, woodland and impressive countryside. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, plus the ingenious use of space has meant that the spacious and luxurious master bedroom suite has been tucked into a space on the lower ground floor. This room benefits from a further sleeping area with a sofa bed, as well as an en-suite shower room, all cleverly ventilated by full warm and cold air conditioning. The cottage has its own private patio area as well as shared access to a three-acre paddock, a wonderful area for exercising the dogs. Just a short walk takes you to the tow path of the lovely Kennet and Avon Canal, where you can walk for miles admiring the colourful narrow boats as they leisurely chug their way through the picturesque Vale of Pewsey. Locally, visit the Crofton Beam Engines, the world's oldest working beam engines, which regularly hold 'steam up' days, when visitors from far and wide come to admire the magnificent machinery. Take the short drive to Savernake Forest and spend time strolling along the forest trails or enjoy browsing the antiques in the Hungerford Arcade. The nearby historic town of Marlborough is just a short drive away and offers a vast array of interesting shops and restaurants. Should you tire of all this, then drive to regal Bath or ancient Salisbury, both of which are easily accessible. A superb, rural Wiltshire escape at any time of the year.
