A most attractive Grade II listed thatched 4 bedroom cottage, with exceptional southerly views towards Salisbury Plain, in all circa 5 acres
Barn Cottage is a beautiful and most appealing thatched cottage situated in a rural location in the village of Stert, one of the prettiest villages in Wiltshire and with history going back to Domesday. Just 3 miles from the bustling market town of Devizes, Stert is a ‘no through’ village and the cottage enjoys privacy in its tranquil setting, whilst being accessible to both local amenities and excellent transport links. The Pewsey Vale is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and therefore the cottage benefits from the stunning walks and riding that can be found locally. Planks Farm Shop and café is about a mile distant.
Barn Cottage is a superb extended thatched property, believed to date from the C17th and presented in excellent condition throughout, having been the subject of a significant programme of renewal and refurbishment at the end of the last millennium.
