** A PERIOD HOME WITH SO MUCH TO OFFER!** Nestled in a tranquil village amidst the Westbury Downs and enjoying mature gardens, 'Happy Cottage' is your quintessential chocolate box cottage! With a new thatch roof ordered and paid for this attractive cottage will get even better (2nd week of June). Outside the private and plentiful gardens take in some wonderful views as well as the sun being that it is south west facing. With pear and apple trees, flowering cherry and wisteria alongside the numerous planted borders you could say this is a gardener's garden! There is a single garage and off street parking for several cars. Inside the perfectly balanced layout comprises three double bedrooms complemented by three reception rooms. There is a vaulted kitchen with fitted dressers and tiled flooring, a new cooker and Belfast sink. The sitting room has a fabulous Inglenook fireplace with log burning stove, exposed beams and tiled flooring with a step up to a separate dining room. There is also a study, conservatory and downstairs WC. Stairs (which are wider than you may expect in a cottage) lead up to three double bedrooms and a first floor bathroom with exposed wooden flooring. Further benefits include a modern oil fired boiler (2018) and no onward chain.


The property is well situated in this popular village enjoying superb far reaching views and fabulous countryside walks right on the doorstep. The adjoining village of Erlestoke provides a Church, Cricket Club and Golf Club, whilst the local bus route provides access to the primary and secondary schools in Great Cheverell and Market Lavington.

The renowned Dauntsey's School can be found in West Lavington, and the historic market town of Devizes is approximately 5 miles to the north providing town centre shopping, a leisure centre, cinema, museum and theatre. The centres of Chippenham, Trowbridge, Salisbury, Bath, Swindon and Marlborough are all within a 20 miles radius. There is also a useful mainline railway station at Westbury.


From Devizes take the A360 towards Salisbury, proceed through the village of Potterne and then take a right hand turn towards Great Cheverell. Proceed right through Great Cheverell and at the cross roads turn right on to the B3098 towards Erlestoke. Pass through the village of Erlestoke, past the golf course and then take a right hand turn (in the dip of the road) down in to Coulston. Continue down in to the village and the property is on the right hand side before the right hand bend.
