Cottage with five acres in Wiltshire

Cockerel Cottage is a 17th century cottage on the edge of Little Bedwyn in Wiltshire. The house has over 2,800ft of living space, and as such has comfortable family accommodation and would serve as a primary residence or a weekend cottage.

With the 40′ kitchen/breakfast room at the heart of the house, the rest of the house is light and spacious, and very fine for entertaining.

Accommodation comprises: entrance hall, kitchen, sitting room, drawing room, dining/sitting room, family room, study, and master bedroom with ensuite dressing room and bathroom, plus four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, the barn was converted by the current vendors and provides ideal additional accommodation, as well as an office and a studio, with 1,000 sq ft of additional space.

The gardens and grounds include a large stone terrace area, accessed from both the kitchen and drawing room, and the grounds comprise gardens and woodland extending to the rear and the west. There are lawns and water meadows, as well as a lake stocked with Rainbow Trout on the other side of the road to the house, as well as the River Dunn. The house comes with full sporting rights over the land, which comes to around five acres.

Little Bedwyn is a pretty Wiltshire village just one mile from Great Bedwyn which has two public houses, a village shop, post office, local GP and a train station. Marlborough and Hungerford are within easy reach and there are very good schools in the area.

The guide price is £995,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01488 682 726 or visit
