Churchdown is a beautiful large Victorian family home in Chippenham – a perfect location for exploring the wonderful Wiltshire towns, villages and countryside. For example the lovely villages of Castle Combe and Lacock are both within a few miles, while historic Georgian Bath is easy and quick to get to either by car (13 miles) or by train (15 minutes from Chippenham Station which is just 5 minutes walk away).
The Designer Outlet Village in Swindon is also close - one junction along the M4, or a 15 minute train journey.
The extremely dog friendly house sits in a fully walled garden of about 1/3 of an acre, with beautiful walks along the river Avon a couple of hundred yards from the door. There are four substantial bedrooms - three double with at least king size beds, and one twin. The master bedroom has a four-poster bed and stunning travertine tiled en-suite bathroom with cast iron bath and separate shower. The attic bedroom is perfect for several children.
There are three separate rooms to relax in: a more formal drawing room complete with organ (the foot pumps mean you can get lots of exercise too!); the 30 ft long garden room with french doors leading to the wooden decked terrace, and the sitting room with wood-burning stove, as well as HD television, Sky, DVD player X-Box and wi-fi hub. You are welcome to read any of the few hundred books available, or maybe try one of the board games or jigsaw puzzles in the games cupboard.
The dining room comfortably seats 8 around its oak table, and the kitchen is a cook’s paradise, equipped with an Aga, as well as a four-ring gas hob and gas oven and the separate utility area has a second sink, washing machine, and two large fridge freezers available for your use. If you want a break from self-catering there are a number of pubs and take-aways in Chippenham itself, and we can also recommend a number of local village pubs and restaurants within a 10 mile radius from simple to Michelin starred.
