Woodborough is a desirable village of predominantly period houses and cottages, situated about 4 miles to the west of Pewsey and is one of three closely linked hamlets which between them benefit from a pub/restaurant, garden centre, primary school and church. It is situated in the heart of the Pewsey Vale, designated an ‘Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty’. The larger village of Pewsey provides extensive local facilities including a mainline railway service to Newbury, Reading and Paddington (about 1 hour). Marlborough is about 8 miles distant and there is excellent riding and walking country in the renowned Marlborough Downs nearby. The village is surrounded by rolling open countryside and the Kennet and Avon canal runs close to the edge of the village.
