A Rare Opportunity to acquire a charming Period Cottage with a Private 0.66 Acre Garden located in this Highly Regarded Village.



is a charming detached period cottage believed to date from the early 1800’s and more than likely originally owned by the Longleat Estate. The cottage has pretty Wisteria-clad colourwashed stone and brick elevations under a tiled roof and benefits from Upvc sealed unit double glazing to most windows together with Oil-fired central heating to radiators. The property stands in private Gardens of two-thirds of an acre and comes with the added bonus of a sizeable detached former Barn which would suit conversion into a self-contained accommodation annexe or a home office. Although offering scope for some updating this is a rare opportunity to acquire a period home in this highly regarded village where properties of this nature are seldom available hence the Agents strongly recommend an early accompanied internal inspection in order to avoid disappointment.


Shearcross Farm occupies a delightful setting just below the treeline in Shearcross a quiet little-used lane in this most popular of villages, which will appeal to country-lovers and ramblers alike and a great area for riding. Crockerton is a friendly village located on the edge of the Longleat Estate, ancestral home of the Marquess of Bath and the Thynne family, with miles of unspoilt country walks and many hundreds of acres of accessible woodland. Closeby is the beautiful Shearwater Lake popular for angling and sailing, whilst the village Primary School - rated Good by Ofsted, is easily accessible and the village gastro- pub The Bath Arms will be re-opening shortly after refurbishment. Crockerton is served by buses to Warminster 2 miles to the North with good schooling and excellent shopping facilities - 3 supermarkets including a Waitrose store, and a wide range of other amenities which include a theatre & library, hospital & clinics, and railway station with regular rail services to Salisbury, and then direct to London Waterloo, and to Bath with a direct line on to South Wales. Other centres in the area include Frome, Trowbridge, Westbury, Bath and Salisbury are all within a comfortable driving distance, as are the various Salisbury Plain military bases whilst the A350, A36 and A303 trunk routes provide swift access throughout the West Country and further afield to London via the A303/M3.
