Beautifully presented barn, set within 16 acres and the River Avon running the perimeter, creating a wonderful escape for family or friends. Ideally situated within Lacock, an area protected by the National Trust.

This stunning converted barn sits within the heart of Wiltshire, adjacent to the owner's property and located between Chippenham and Lacock. Chippenham is within a mile, a very short drive away and home to many shops and eateries, with plenty there to keep yourself busy. A little further afield is the Georgian Spa town of Bath, famous for the Bath spas, theatres, racecourse and rugby ground and makes a wonderful base from which to explore Somerset and the Cotswolds. There is a host of popular attractions to explore, Longleat, Lacock, Stonehenge, Stourhead, Glastonbury and Cheddar Gorge to name but a few.

A shingle path leads from the parking area through the garden to the private entrance of this beautiful converted barn. Just inside the door is a stunning open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with original stone walls and high wooden beams. The stylish kitchen area with centre island is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer dishwasher and washing machine. There is a comfortable dining space adjacent, perfect for mealtimes. Take time to relax in the lounge area, where there are inviting sofas for curling up and watching a film on the TV. There are three bedrooms to choose from, a twin room with TV and Jack and Jill en-suite bathroom with a shower over bath and WC (also accessed from the hallway). The very impressive and large super-king-size bedroom has a TV and an en-suite wet room with shower and WC. Completing the accommodation are twin beds on the mezzanine level above the living area.

Heading outside you will find a pretty shingle terrace with garden furniture, perfect for al fresco dining or a spot of stargazing. The gardens and views are peaceful with plenty of wildlife to watch and a lovely pond with extra seating, the perfect spot to lose yourself in a good book or enjoy a nice glass of wine on those warmer summer nights. Off-road parking for two cars is available to the side of the property.

Stunning barn conversion in beautiful grounds. Barbara was an excellent host. The barn is very well equipped with everything you may need. There are plenty of pretty villages and walks nearby and lots of great places to eat out. Bath is a short car ride away and places like Stonehenge a little further afield. Would highly recommend.

The Dovecote is a lovely, beautifully equipped cottage set in large grounds. The owner, Barbara, was very helpful and on hand if anything was required. There are wonderful river walks close by and very pretty Cotswolds villages such as Lacock and Castle Combe are well worth visiting.

The Cottage is very well appointed. The Master bedroom suite is huge, with a great en-suite shower room. The second and third bedrooms were very small. This combination makes it ideal for a family with children. The main living area has large glass roof panels making it extremely hot in the sun.
