Set in the most spectacular rural setting and enjoying breath taking views across the Stert Valley, yet within a ten minute drive of the historic market town of Devizes. Vale Cottage is a magnificent 16th century detached thatched cottage with the added attraction of a separate detached barn house within the grounds. This stunning period home is set in large outstanding gardens approaching around two acres with a further paddock available by separate negotiation.

Vale Cottage is presented in splendid condition throughout, with the unusual benefit of a two/three bedroom barn house, which gives valuable living and entertaining space, located just metres from the main house. Built in the 16th Century, with later additions, the house is full of character with pretty windows, wooden beams, and an inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. The galley kitchen and breakfast room lead through to the beamed garden room and in turn, out to the south facing terrace, perfect for alfresco dining or just relaxing as you savour the intoxicating rural outlook. The sitting room and snug are spacious yet cosy, and very light, with French doors which lead out to the terrace. On the first floor are three bedrooms, study, and a spacious family bathroom, and separate shower room.

The impressive, detached timber barn/annexe is situated just across the driveway and offers versatile living and entertaining space which is as large as the cottage itself. Set over three floors this impressive timber barn is connected by a spacious and beautifully crafted wooden spiral staircase. This could be a part of the family home - as present, or a potential letting opportunity, Airbnb, or holiday home. The ground floor comprises a very large sitting room/reception/ entertaining room, contemporary fitted kitchen, utility/storage room, and large  shower room with a separate covered porch main access. Upstairs is an impressive open plan living space, currently arranged as two bedrooms and a separate double bedroom, and on the lower ground floor is an extremely large garage/workshop which leads to a useful utility/storeroom to the rear.

The house is approached via a no through country lane on a gentle slope, overlooking distant rolling hills. The gravel in/out driveway wraps between the house and annexe and provides generous parking. Set within stunning gardens and grounds approaching 2 acres, the immaculate gardens and exquisite views create a picturesque setting for this quintessentially English period cottage. There are extensive lawned areas, mature flower beds and pretty ponds surrounded by willow trees. The idyllic setting and the versatile living accommodation make this property a unique and very attractive proposition. 

The property occupies a secluded rural position, surrounded by beautiful countryside, two miles from the historic Wiltshire market town of Devizes. The Potato Yard at nearby Lydeway has a farm shop, hairdressers and yoga studio. There are several good schools in the area, including the nearby Urchfont C of E Primary School, Dauntseys, St John's Marlborough, Marlborough College, St Mary's, Calne and St Francis, Pewsey. By road, the A342 and A4 provides access towards Chippenham and the M4 (J17), while Swindon is 20 miles to the north via the A361 and A4361 and Bath is 22 miles away via the A4.
